Dedollewaitor (13390) - Odense, - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle @ Christian Firtal, Odense. Pours black with a creamy beige head. Slick and vinous. Dark fruit, roast, coffee, chocolate and wood. Vinous and slick with a note of soy sauce. Smooth and dry. Nice.

daje (1875) - NORWAY - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Black body, just a tiny espresso colored head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, booze. Taste of strong coffee with vanilla, strong calvados notes, dark fruits. High viscosity, sweet and roasty finish with a light apple hint.

JefVerstraete (937) - BELGIUM - APR 2, 2014
Oily black colour, syrupy texture, dark brown foam. Soft carbonation. Full body. Very complex aroma of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate. Notes of calvados in the finish. Very smooth and drinkable. Very well made!

JStax (2643) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle pour. Pours a thick black with a khaki colored head of foam. The nuts and anise that I got from the base beer are still coming through, but there’s also a fruity sweet burn coming across in the taste. Pretty roasty overall and has a nice barrel burn on the finish. Thick mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation.

SlovakSniper (2826) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2014
Une robe rouge plongée dans les ténèbres. Un bon col de mousse qui reste longuement figé. J’observe une dentelle éparse qui forme un relief montagneux. Le nez a des yeux noirs qui saignent un espresso noyé dans un verre de brandy chaud. Mes narines croquent dans un brownie imbibé de sexe et de réglisse. Ma langue s’entortille dans une forêt de chêne. Des rivières de cidre de glace me coulent entre les dents. Des prunes enroulées dans la mélasse fondent sur mes papilles vanillées. Au palais, le corps soyeux est celui d’une déesse africaine qui enroule ses jambes autour de mon cou. La finale est plantureuse avec son immensité chocolatée, ses énormes fruits macérés et son eau-de-vie de pommes qui tapisse le corps de mon coeur qui roucoule en petite boule.

MattiasA (622) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle @ Tröls. Not to my taste unfortunatley, real heavy on the alcohol and etanol is thus a dominant aroma. Didn’t pick up on the calvados either.

Scopey (5548) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle at home. It pours jet black with small tan head. The nose is rich roasted malt, coffee, earth, cocoa, light soy sauce notes, spice and wood. The taste is rich, roasty, dark chocolate, salted liquorice, umami aspect, burnt notes, touch of acidity, chewy malt, alcohol and brandy with a roasty, warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A bit too savoury even....a touch of sweetness would help balance it out. So-so.

HoppyBudgie (606) - SOLA, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2014
Dark with brown head. Aroma is spicy, a lot milder than the bourbon edition. Same roasted malt and alcohol notes. Taste is of roast malt, chocolate, liquorice, dark fruit with spicy fruity notes. Proper solid one this. Love the barrel touch on this

Christian (10781) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2014
Black with a small tan head. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, coffee and charcoal with a fruity note. Thick and rich heavy imperial stout flavour with obvious calva notes. Works very well

Psytron (1157) - Turku, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Smell of oak, sugar. Very dark colour, dark brown head. Aroma of tar, coffee, alcohol, oak. Very sweet, viscous. Flat carbon.

GothGargoyle (945) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Solid black with a decent chocolate head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, calvados, liquorice, raisins, oak, leather, hint of smoke. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, roasty on the palate with a hint of booze on the finish. Taste is oak, chocolate, coffee, dates, vanilla, cocoa, liquorice, brandy. Yum!
