brontebeach (156) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2013
Pours very dark with a thin tan head. Chocolate, malty, cognac nose. Immediately smooth in the mouth, light carbonation, and a mouthful of chocolate. Great after dinner beer, or with a ’big’ pudding.

omhper (19318) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2013
Bottled, from Systembolaget. Very black with beige head. Aroma of chocolate, licorice and cognac. Sweet and thick with full body. Chocolate sauce and treacle dominates. Warming and heavy withsticky sweetness. Some nice flavours, but not really enough to balance up the syrupy heaviness.

Benzai (8123) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2013
Bottle shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus. Opaque pitch black color, small brown head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell malts, cognac, lightly roasty. Taste malts, lightly roastyness, cognac, lightly alcohol. Superb mix of all the before mentioned ingredients and probably a couple more. Absolutely a lovely beer. Full body, medium carbonation.

AdamJackson (2535) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2013
Picked this up in Copenhagen.

A - Pours a huge thick oily black like motor oil or day old fry grease. Totally still, no head at all. Nice alcohol legs.

S - Smells very very similar to the first time I smelled BCBS. The huge aroma of chocolate, cream and bourbon (yes this is cognac) but it’s a boozy chocolate bomb and it smells fantastic!

T - Very sweet finish, the cognac really shines at the finish and it is sticky and resilient and sticks around for a long time. Start is roasted hazelnut and coffee. Black chocolate and raisins in the middle

M - Heavy and thick in body, almost like drinking melted fudge or brownie mix. no carbonation, very slick and viscous. Incredibly drinkable.

O - You know, I was going to share this with some friends because It’s pretty highly rated but the bottle is small, only 8.5 ounces and it’s a great beer to sip for hours on a cool spring evening. Great job! It’s sad that the cognac really only shows itself toward the finish.
