OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 20, 2013
750ml served in a St. Bernardus chalice. A - Pitch black body with a creamy mocha head that retains well. Sticky speckled lacing left behind. S - Strong and rich dairy chocolate, roasted barley, sweet vanilla coffee, chocolate fruit cake, cherries. Good stuff here. T - Chocolate hits first, creamy and sweet with some bitter roast behind it, hints of oxidation, some muted cherries, and raisins, also getting some charred wood in the middle. The finish showcases powdery dry yeast with some bitter roast at the very end. M - Full body but light and very creamy as well, moderate carbonation, no alcohol heat at all. Haven’t had this fresh but at 1 year this tastes great. Not your typical BSDA but very smooth, creamy bold flavors that have seemed to blend well. Drinks more like a stout. The way that this beer hides the ABV is very impressive. It’s almost non-existent. Well done. Serving type: bottle 12-26-2012

fantti (732) - FINLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin sysimustana ja runsaalla ruskealla vaahdolla, joka katoaa suht nopeasti. Haju on paahteisen makean mausteinen, anista, appelsiininkuorta ja salmiakkiakin on joukossa. Maku on todella makean sokerinen ja kahvinen, hieman paahteinen, lakritsinen ja vahvasti alkoholin polttama. Kasvien juuret tulevat myös mieleen. Suutuntuma on täyteläinen ja alkoholin polttama. Kokonaisuutena hienon hajuinen olut, jonka mausta en pidä. Haju antoi odottaa huomattavasti parempaa. Huonoin maistamistani pukin pikku apureista.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Black in color with a tan head. Nice dark fruit and licorice aromas to this. A bit of ash, some cocoa powder, roasted malt, chocolate, cola, and a light spiciness. Lightly sweet with a lot of the roasted malt, licorice, and ash characteristics taking center stage. A bit of cola sweetness, chocolate, and dark fruits. Mild spice flavor on the finish.

sheep (93) - FINLAND - JAN 5, 2013
375ml bottle, best before 31/08/17. Aged for a year. Pours pitch black with one finger of creamy, mocha-colored head. Lovely roasty aroma has cocoa, caramel and light spiciness. Taste has roasted malt, dark chocolate, a faint spicy note, syrup/brown sugar and salty liquorice in the end. Faint smoke in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with medium carbonation. Full-bodied. Quite an enjoyable sipper, not too sweet.
