Bottle shared at Bruce’s pad, big thanks to Kenneth, 16/01/14. Light black with a good sized tan head. Nose is coconut shavings a la dark chocolate Bounty Bar, dark toffee fudge, light booze. Taste is mega bounty bar - red wrapper with black cardboard tray, dark chocolate, light spice, boozey leanings. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, sweet closure with light booze. Best of the series for me, nice flavours, well tempered booze - easy drinker for the style.

bottle 375 ml 10.9% abv. pitch black with foamy beige head. aroma with cognac notes. chocolate and cognac dominates the taste but also dark fruits. its a great ale but the cognac influence is omnipresent and i prefer the original version in this case.

RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Mahogny in color, off-white head. Wooden notes, some sweet spices, bit of vanilla and vinous chocolate in aroma. Nice, feels quite like Christmas somehow. Roasted notes with chococoffee upfront in taste. Creamy and soft mouthfeel. Cinnamon and chocolatey cognac in the end. A nice surprise.

Bottle @ THT November. Pours a dark brown beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma of malts, booze, caramel and chocolate. Flavor is very sweet, herbal, loads of chocolate malts, molasses. Booze is noticeable and some anise is present as well. Good, firm sweet aftertaste. Very well aged, good stuff.
