gendv138 (1192) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2014
10 ounce draft pour at Frisco Taphouse in a goblet. Pours black with a finger of tan head. Aromas of nutty notes, cognac, dark chocolate, roast, coffee. Tastes of roast, light cognac, nutty notes, toffee, dark chocolate. Full body with a dry finish. Low carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Good but it could use more barrel character, doesn’t taste all that different from the non-barrel aged George! to me.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle. It pours an oily, black body under a minimal sized tan head. Just a thin layer of bubbles actually. It’s quite alcoholic on the nose, with loads of molasses, dark chocolate and coffee. Cocoa and a faint touch of prunes. The flavor has quite a lot of sweetness, with dark chocolate, coffee and toast. Lasting finish with roasted malts and coffee. Some chocolate and cocoa. Really pleasant this one, needs some time to finish this one, but it’s worth it. 140509

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 7, 2014
On tap at Kraftwork. Aroma is sweet coffee, Milky Way bar, and cocoa. Pours thick and black blackity black with a very small dark brown head. Taste is just amazing. Licorice, black coffee, hazelnut, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak, and brandy. Thick in the mouth with a lingering chocolate and butterscotch finish. I would gladly drink this again.

Garrold (1214) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from Beermoth, Manchester. Label states this was brewed at Nogne. Anyhow... Oily black. Thin, lasting, brown head. Aroma is Old Jamaica chocolate. Leather. Tobacco. Wood smoke. Vanilla ice cream. Taste is cocoa sweet first off. Black fruit semi sweetness. Dried vine fruit, fusty dryness. There’s even a light saltiness in there. A bitter, roasty finish evens everything up. I’m having a good beer night, tonight!

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle @brew night with jeevan & allmyvinyl. Pours black thin tan head, big malty nose a touch of dark cherries and some apple on the nose, also some woody notes. Taste is very much the same. Nice but nowhere near as good as the calvados.

CloakedDagger (525) - - APR 3, 2014
Bottle 25 cl. Pours an opaque black with a small, light brown head - very thick and syrupy. Rich - almost fat - body. Sweet, vanillaish roast with some oxidized barrel notes - even if they are hard to detect as Cognac. Warming finish. Delish. 030414

allmyvinyl (3097) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2014
250ml bottle courtesy of Lonick. Pours like crude oil. Tiny tan head. Aromas are boozy, apples, brandy, dark chocolate, eyes water. Taste is big and sweet, some burn, more dark chocolate. Good, but quite a contrast to the Speedway, which, at a similar strength was a damn sight smoother drinking.
