Vaiz (3149) - 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.

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 (408) - - 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 (2182) - 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.

Sevenlee (1197) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours totally black with a small black head. Aroma is malt, roastiness, chocolate, coffee, caramel, woody notes, some cognac and dark fruits. Taste is high sweet and intense leading to a hefty but well hidden alcholic finish. Fantastic!!

JStax (2622) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle pour. Pours a thick black with a khaki colored head of foam. The nuts and anise that I got from the base beer are still coming through, but there’s also a musty, earthy, sweet burn coming across in the taste. Pretty roasty overall and has a nice barrel burn on the finish. Thick mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation.

RasmusOtt (968) - Aalborg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2014
Pours pitch black with a crazy dark head (easy 5). Okay let’s dig into this, my expectations are very high here. Okay the first thing that strikes me in the aroma is the HUGE roasted espresso notes. Then i get smokey notes, tobacco, brown sugar, cinnamon cocoa nuts, woolen sweaters, dark rich chocolate, dark dried fruit, also some sweeter alcoholic notes (cognac) and just the characteristic George madness! Taste is just WOW. This beer gets me every time. Lots and lots of fruity coffee with alot of espresso characteristics. Also some dark dried fruits, smokey tobacco notes, dark rich chocolate, sweet english liquorice, vanilla and with a silky smooth palate. George is one Boss of a beer and this barrel is working very well!

JefVerstraete (933) - BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2014 Oily black colour, very thick texture. Low carbonation. Overwhelming aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruits and cognac. Very impressive, this is just perfect!

wyzzywyz22 (1890) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle delivered to my front door by Brewdog on-line shop. Pitch black pour with a meek tan head. Nose had notes of dark fruit, booze, malts, cognac and dark choc. Similar characteristics present in the taste alongside some roast and unfolding bitterness. Full bodied and smooth. Classy offering which does everything right.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2014
Bouteille 25cl de HopDuvel. Couleur noir obsidienne, col moka léger avec un filament doré au verre. Arôme offre bien ce bouquet de Cognac le tout sur une petite pointe de vanille, malté profond avec un chocolaté très présent sur un boisé discret. Palais est épais sur de belles notes de chocolat, pointe de fumé et un rappel un peu soja. Épais sur un café et grillé modéré, épais et huileux, très peu en terme de houblons. Cognac reste présent sans pour cela être trop dominant avec un café présent en fin de bouche. Parfait en 25cl.
