Vaiz (3867) - Den Haag, - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle @ beer temple. Pitch black pour, creamy dark brown head. Aroma is creamy roasted ashy, smooth alcoholic cognac. Flavor is smooth bitter roasted ashy, sweet chocolate malts. Amazing balance. Huge body. Huge brew. Fantastic.

jc1762 (255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 14, 2015
Poured into a taster showing pitch black oily soy sauce with zero head. This one is really thick. The nose shows sweet cognac mixed with gentle coffee notes. Moderate intensity of both and mixed well. The palate is thick bodied, oily, slick, and very lightly carbonated. Mostly big black dark coffee notes. A very slight cognac sweetness appears in the background. The finish shows a lot of the alcohol and almost chewable coffee flavor.

freretoc (1175) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 2, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 25cl à la maison. Couleur noire de chez peu de mousse ni d’effervescence. Nez sur le bois et le cognac. En bouche attaque énorme sur le café avec une grosse sensation pateuse, continuité sur le chocolat et l’alcool.

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Couleur noir pétrole opaque. Mousse moka très fine. Aucune effervescence. Nez alcool de fruit, café, boisé. Au palais, gros hit d'alcool puis café ultra présent. Grosse corpulence. Grande longueur en bouche. Assez exceptionnelle.

TheJestersBeer (2265) - SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2015
250ml bottle. (Sticker states it is brewed at Nögne Ö, not Lervig...) Pours impenetrably pitch black, with almost no head, save a little brown lacing. Huge, complex aroma, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, ashes, licorice, oak, subtle Cognac notes, vanilla, faint smoke, caramel. Sweet, full bodied (and beyond), high bitterness, low/creamy CO2. Roasted, oaky, complex taste, coffee, caramel, chocolate, tobacco, licorice, ash, hops, vanilla, wood. The obvious understatement is that this beer is quite extreme. Served in a snifter, it is great as a digestif, or with heavy chocolate desserts. Apart from that, drinkability is close to zero. Impressive, nevertheless. (2015-06-18)

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2015
Pours black with a very dark tan head. Nose shows heavy roasted malt, sultanas, rich dried fruit and booze. More roast and booze as flavours along with some sweet bready malt, liquorice and cocoa.

mergels (24) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 3, 2015
Looks like oil, smells like heaven! Boozy, leatherish smell with lots of burnt malts and cognac notes. Really thick, oily mouthfeel. Sweet taste of chocolate, hints of cognac, definitely barrel aged as you can taste it. Also some coffee taste to it. Almost no bitterness. Barely any carbonation. What a beauty!

Starting to feel like a booking record, thanks going to Willrunforbeer splitting his four variants of George with me. This is just the treat I needed this weekend. Really great aroma that is similar to the base stout. Chocolate fudge hints, light ash, sweet barrel/cognac/wood.

The thicker body that is dense and super slick texture across the tongue. This barrel treatment (just like the bourbon variant) compliments the base stout extremely well. Slight warming sensation after the sip with sweet cognac finish. The carbonation is my only complaint because it was very low, but doesn’t hurt the flavor, just couldn’t score over a 4. Otherwise this is a beautiful stout.
