bytemesis (3011) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bottle - thanks Ben! Pours very inky black with a secondary small black creamy head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is brandy, dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee. Flavor is the same with a touch of liquorice. Barrel notes present but not overpowering. Medium sweet, lightly bitter. Full silky body. Very satisfying. The worst thing about it was that my wive loved it and drank half my pour!

Bottled:
Pitch black with a small, brown head. Huge aroma of toffee, licorice, roasted malt and smoke. Really thick mouthfeel. Flavour is quite sweet and has notes of roasted malt, toffee, licorice, oak and warming alcohol. The bottle was small but the beer was BIG!

50belair (2167) - Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Ink black pour. Oily lacing. Big fudge and cognac aromas. Good body with a very nice mouthfeel. Boozy with a fair amount of heat. Tasty fudge, bitter roasted malts, caramel, licorice, and subtle soy sauce notes. Not as good as bourbon.

caesar (4946) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2013
Tap @ CBC2013. Dark color, short head. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolat, some strange vegetable or meat broth which probably is the cognac, ashes. Hmm, strange combination, that doesnt seem to fit each other. Bitter taste.

Scopey (6238) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle at home. It pours jet black with a tiny dark tan head. The nose is roasted malt, strong soy sauce, toasted sesame seed, coffee grinds, oily, salted liquorice and chocolate. The taste is rich roasted malt, espresso coffee, toffee, chocolate gateaux, pecan pie, salted liquorice, burnt earth, dark fruit, cognac and warming alcohol with lingering bitterness. Full body, low carbonation and viscous, oily mouth-feel. A rich, indulgent beast of a beer. Tastes delicious, but I’m slightly off-put by the soy sauce notes on the nose. Great stuff nonetheless.
