jackl (3859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Tap @ CBC 2013. The pour’s black with a tight tan head. Pretty attractive pour. The nose is very, very sweet. Loads of glazed donut. Burnt brown sugar. Lactose. Coffee cake. Chocolate fudge. The taste is vanilla, toffee. Sweet milk chocolate. Quite sugary, a bit hot. Oily body, thick. Decent, but a couple of ounces is plenty.

_angst_ (2353) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2013
Draught @ CBC2013. Pours oily pitch black with a small creamy mocha head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of creamy lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet and malty with roasted malts, caramel, burnt cookies, toffee, charred wood, minerals, butterscotch hard candy, sweetened dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, alcohol and hints of roasted nuts, dried dark fruits and smoke. Taste is very sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, sweetened dark roast coffee, burnt caramel, dried dark fruits, dark chocolate and alcohol. Mouthfeel is round, oily, boozy sticky sweet and full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, dried dark fruits, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, wood, alcohol and hints of roasted nuts and port wine. Pretty good but way to sweet to be really good...

Sample from tap, CBC 2013. Pitch black with a creamy, tan head. Sweet aroma with rich roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, licorice, brown sugar and bread. Hints of tar and soy sauce. Taste is heavy sweet. Full body, thick feel. Finishes heavy sweet and roasted with coffee, alcohol and fat, creamy milk chocolate. This beer is so thick, so vulgar and rich it´s almost unbearable. Glad I only had a sample... Excellent experience.
