jbeatty (1228) - New York, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle, 06/04/2014. Pours black, dark tan head fades almost immediately, nearly no lacing. Aroma is intense espresso, charred roast chocolate malt, cacao, leather, mildly earthy cherry, fruit notes, peaking through, wood. Taste is chocolate, dark cherry though not overly sweet, licorice, espresso roast, long aftertaste with resinous cherry, cacao nut bitterness. Medium thick body. More roast character than expected, cherry adds subtle accents to the base, intense dark bitterness.

DSG (9317) - Tel Aviv, - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle shared at Ariel’s farewell tasting at Max’s place. Black with some light brown foam. Aroma of spicy wood, chocolate, dark fruits, a bit of soy sauce, and a bit of booziness. Sweet flavor with chocolate, roast, dark fruits (some cherry notes), vinous notes, vanilla, and a bitterish note. Full-bodied. Great stuff.

ABT_S54 (303) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pitch black with a massive dark brown head. Thick, oily and syrupy as all the Georges have been. This is massively refined and less sweet than I expected. No cherry in the taste but you can clearly tell the effect the barrels have had on the beer. Oaky, almost earthy but still with a good level of sweetness. Possibly the easiest drinking (everything is relative) of all the Georges I have tried with the Calvados and Bourbon still being rated higher but amongst this company it literally comes down to what you fancy on the day.

Zakoon (370) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2015
33cl bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours black with a creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, oak, chocolate, some ash and a hint of fruit. Flavour is clealy cherries, medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is tonnes of cherries and some oak. This is a little too much.

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2015
Bouteille 33cl, BB 28/11/2023. Couleur noire, col léger moka avec un beau doré au verre. Arôme est fruité de barriue accompagné par un beau bouquet malté de chocolat avec un petit résiduel boisé. Le tout laisse une impression de vin Xeres voire de Sherry et Porto. Palais garde cette influence levure belge rappelant un stout de Struise. Alcool est quant à elle bien présent sans être surfaite. Profil malté est profond avec pas mal de caramel et surtout de chocolat accompagné d’une belle note de chêne boisée et d’un fini vin rouge. Correcte mais stout qui ne rivalise pas avec ses comparses américains.
