jercraigs (7638) - 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

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 Bouteille 250ml, gracieuseté de SlovakSniper, Merci Pat! Couleur noire complétement opaque, mince mousse couleur chocolat au lait foncé. Arôme de chocolat noir, cognac, boisé, cerise noire, café froid. Goût de chocolat noir, malt torréfié, boisé, cerise, gâteau forêt noire, cognac en fin de bouche, alcool presque indétectable, légère acidité qui augmente la buvabilité. Carbonatation faible, corps très dense. Un régal.

gendv138 (1028) - 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 (13191) - 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
