jbeatty (1022) - 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.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. An almost black one, if not black, with a dark tan head. Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, licorice notes, mocha, alcohol, something vinous and a little woody vanilla. It’s quite warming, but in a nice way, with wood, licorice, mocha, chocolate and vanilla. A touch of bitterness too. Even more licorice. Lasting malty finish with a wonderful hoppyness and a fine alcohol touch in the finish. Wonderful and complex, and tasteful. 140717

Benzai (8214) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Opaque pitch black color, full sized dark brown head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, some roast, clearly cherry wine coming through. Taste malts, roasted malts, some hops, wood, cherry wine present again, some sourness mixed with bitter but the bitterness wins in the end. This is absolutely lovely. What a superb beer!
