Ever been punched in the face by a beer? Our pal George offers anyone willing to try, a thick and oily fist right to the nose.

11.2 oz single bottle from Supermarket Liquors. Inky black pour with a tiny dissipating brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, molasses, bitter chocolate, light coffee grounds, dark fruits, leather, anise, light char, toasted coconut and light earth. Similar flavor, complex, rich and pretty bold. Pretty full body with a smooth oily feel, a coating mouth experience, soft carbonation and a lingering finish. The alcohol is mostly hidden. A nice sipper overall.

Oily black appearance with hints of red, and no head. Tastes of roasted coffee, bourbon, dry wood, red wine, alcohol, dried fruits, rubber and peppers. Heavy body, moderately carbonated, and a long strong finish of roasted malt and chocolate.

Renobob (1600) - Besançon, FRANCE - OCT 9, 2015
Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Superbe stout, couleur pétrole. Belle épaisseur. Pas de mousse. Nez grillé et alcool avec pointe de chocolat. Au palais, explosion de saveurs, énorme corpulence. Longueur en bouche infinie. Superbe.

The description was right, punch in the face it is! Heavy stout aroma and taste, with the 12% of alcohol kicking only through the breath after swallowing the beer. As awesome as it is, you can’t drink this beer, you have to take the time to savor it! I still prefer the milk stout from the same brewery, easier to drink.

Biere très crémeuse. legere amertume, torréfaction. L’alcool se goute très fort en première gorgée. A boire très calmement

Aroma reminds of bourbon barreled stout. First in the mouth is kind of magic. Coffee and chocolate mousse. Later on, more roasting and pure chocolate.

Grande, immensa birra. Nera come la notte, densa, con poca schiuma e abbastanza evanescente. Ferma, porta odore di tortino al cioccolato, cioccolato nero, cioccolato al latte, vaniglia, liquore. Sapore di liquore, cioccolato, fondente e con ritorni di vaniglia. Immensa armonia tra dolcezza e amaro, birra equilibratissima, densa e piena, che nel retrogusto porta sentori di cognac. Buona come poche, immensa.

Finally I got "normal" version of George! Pours like motor oil opaque black with unstable foamy brown head, which transforms itself to a ring around the glass. Aroma is very strong, with mild low notice of an alcohol, strong presence of coffee, cocoa powder, dark fruits, oak, tobacco, vanilla, cinnamon, molasses and dark chocolate. Flavor is smooth mouthfeel, with concrete presence of an alcohol, which have cognac like flavor, but perfectly balanced with spicy sweetness of malts, with hints of soy sauce, tobacco, cloves, vanilla, cocoa powder etc. Malt sweetness is high, hop bitterness also, but perfectly harmonised. Body is sticky, carbonation low, finish is bitter-sweet. Another masterpiece, made by Mikkel and brewed by great Mike Murphy from Lervig.

Très café et longue amertume houblonnée. Légèrement chocolatée. Trace d’alcool mais à peine
