Douberd (3076) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2014
(Mikkeller George BA Cognac Edition) Bottle 250 ml at home, poured into a small snifter, ABV 12.12% Pours totally black and very thick. A very thin line forms around the glass, plus traces of foam on the surface. Aroma is heavy on alcohol, sweet, wood, faint brandy. Vanilla. Taste is also boozy, roasted malts at first, light vanilla, finishes very sweet and with lots of chocolate. Again the cognac is quite faint or discreet I shoul say. The chocolate cake on the finish makes up for that though. Full thick body, soft carbonation, sticky on the palate. Very good.

GothGargoyle (1605) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
Solid thick viscous black with a dark chocolate head. Aroma is liquorice, coffee, chocolate, oak, cognac, dark fruits, soy sauce, blackcurrant. Full bodied, thick and velvety mouthfeel, smooth, sweet and complex on the palate with a long oily roast finish with well integrated booze. Taste is chocolate, coffee, liquorice, cognac, oak, fig, dates, charred meat. Oh yeah.

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 14, 2014
250ml ml bottle courtesy of angst. Thanks. Pours a dense opaque black color with a small brown head that soon dissipates to a fine ring. The aroma is big and bold with chocolates, molasses, dark fruits and cognac. The taste mirrors the aroma with dark bitter chocolate, chocolate liqueur, anise, raisins, dates, molasses, charcoal and bitter walnuts. The palate is thick and viscous with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering molasses. Overall: incredible, just incredible.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUL 31, 2014
25 cl bottle courtesy of Alex. Thanks! Pours motor oil pitch black with a thin chocolate tan ring for a head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is very complex. Has dense chocolate pudding, espresso, dark roast coffee, a bit of caramel mixed in for good measure. This stuff coats the glass like motor oil, too. Very heavy and dense mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and has layers of complexity to it. Upfront is espresso, followed by dark chocolate pudding, more dark roast mixed in, and has a lingering finish with some smoke and a very slight touch of alcohol. The alcohol is very well hidden in this for the ABV. Overall, a fantastic brew and a great way to start off my secret Santa box. Cheers!

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
2014-07-08. Black body, near headless. 3+ Aroma of moderate alcohol and cognac over dark malt. Flavour is rich, dark malt, warming alcohol. Moderate alcohol and cognac character. Average bodied palate, low carbonation. cognac is relatively restrained but doesn’t necessarily add to my enjoyment of it either. Bottle, Tasting at cgarvieuk’s, Edinburgh

Beautiful black pour with a reddish brown head of foam. Aroma of sweet cognac, candied malts, and leather. Taste is ultra chewy caramel, circus peanuts, sweet effervescent cognac, vanilla, and roasted grain. Quite delicious.
