Capped 375 from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours very brown/black with a dark tan foamy head. Aromas of chocolate and liqueur. Could be orange. Med body. Flavor is dark chocolate, orange, and maybe cognac. Maybe even some coffee. It’s more dry than not. Could be some oak astringency. Bottom line: It tastes good.

Scopey 5K Tasting in deepest Croydonia. Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is light and airy and dry. Mild fine carbonation. Smooth dark malt, mild bitterness. Little dark chocolate and coffee. Light generic fruitiness, perhaps a little orange. Finishes dry. Once again the Grand Marnier provides the weakest barrel presence. Could do with longer in the barrel or perhaps better barrels. Still decent though!

Bottle shared at Scopey’s 5000th rate. Cheers to Kenny. Like with the Santa BA series, the Grand Marnier was probably the weakest of them all. More mellow with some melon underneath the spice driven dark chocolate notes here. Some nice addition of tarty black cherries throughout. Taste is that of cherry and chocolate, quite earthy and powdery feel to it. Solid either way

Bottle Fra Kenny Til Scopey’s 5K Extravaganza of Oompah Band meets doorbell music, cheers the Earl of Essex - 15/02/14. Pitch black with a good sized tan covering, Nose is big roast, liqourice, dark chocolate, oaky wood twang, Terrys Dark Chocolate Orange, Gran Marn waftings. Taste comprises roast malt, mineral bite, earthy cocoa, none of the BA Gran Marnier nose, light smoke. Full bodied, fine carbonation. Ok stuff but the taste fell away from an excellent nose, didn’t get much of the Gran Marnier thereafter.

Scopey (5521) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle thanks to ken. It pours jet black with a thick tan head. The nose is rich roasted malt, toast, dark chocolate, earth, rocky road and mild acidity. The taste is rich roast, earth, dark chocolate, some acidity, earth, toast, citrus peel, alcohol heat and wood with a dry finish. Full body and fine carbonation. A touch better than the tequila. Rich.

Benzai (6409) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2014
Bottle shared by Joes @ weekly tasting. Opaque pitch black color, huge light brown head that lasts for a long time. Aroma has malts, some roast, liquorice, a slight weird touch which I suspect must come from the grand marnier. Taste malts, roasted malts, liquorice, some alcohol, some bitter. Medium body and carbonation.

Poured black with a small beige head. Aroma of roast malt, dark chocolate and liquorice. Full body, flavour of the roast malt dominates, some astringency - a bit like a Baltic in some ways.
