martjoobolut (1209) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 28, 2015
0,33L bottle (from bierkompass.de). Pours black with brown head. The head doesn’t stay at all. Aroma is intense dark chocolate, roast, sweetness, calvados. Flavor is sweet, dark chocolate, roast, malt, coffee, some alcohol and fruits. Finish is dark chocolate and roast. Overall: very nice.

bierkoning (10800) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle. Pitch black, no head. Malt, chocolate and licorice in the aroma. Full bodied. Malty sweet flavor with hints of licorice, oak, caramel, hopjesvla. Vanilla and a hint of apple. Very nice, but the calvados is hard to spot.

Marduk (3357) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2015
330ml (thanks martjoobolut). Pitch black color. Small size, brown head, stays. Roast, sweet, alcohol, berries, red currant, malty aroma. Roast, malty, bit ashy, alcohol, faint spicy hops in taste. Long lasting roast in aftertaste. Medium bitterness and I don’t know if it’s booze or roast. Complex one. I can feel the warmth of alcohol going down the throat.

FatPhil (9908) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 13, 2015
330ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut
Woh, strong calvados aroma, some vanilla, some toffee sweetness, coffee and liquorice. Way too much alcohol. Black, tight tan head. Strong rich roast, chocolatey, burnt but not astringent. Sweetish, but not sickly. Dark chocolate finish, lovely. The retronasals are interesting, the calvados gives a nice fruity twist to the otherwise roasty elements. Do get the alcohol burn as it goes down, alas. A bit heavy and heady at times, but the dark chocolate aspects are lovely, so it’s nice to sip.

suurjuust (1489) - ESTONIA - FEB 13, 2015
Dark brown beer, no head. Roast, vanilla, calvados, malt, dark fruit, some booze notes. Flavor is tons of malt, roast, bready notes, mild wood, finishes with lots of booze and roast. Lingering bready roast. Thanks to martjoobolut for sharing!

Theydon_Bois (11131) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle split at Chez Bruce, thanks to Kenneth King of Essex, 28/11/14. Pitch black with a tan swirl. Nose is rich roast, spice, mineral notes, earthy hop presence, chocolate, booze, dark toffee fudge, calvados evident. Taste comprises spice, warming booze, dark fruit rinds, molasses, dark chocolate, toasted brown sugar. Full bodied, fine carbonation, sweet licks in the closure. Decent Impy, the 15% is well masked but no game changer.

Vaiz (3711) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma is full of roasted malts, licorice, chocolate, molasses, soy sauce, warming alcohol and some booze. Flavor is quite bitter roasted malts, smooth, creamy and solid. Great brew.

Bottle share at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown beer, small tan head. Softish and whilst viscous, is thinner than it’s siblings. Good chocolatey rich dark malts with a trace of coffee. Decent dark malt cream. Little spicy alcohol and then some apple spice before the soft finish, Tasty.
