A small 250ml bottle, 11.2 % abv, shared with Charly and Finn. Bubbly ring to the rim of the glass. Black coloured body with a rustic glint. Attractive aroma of vanilla and dark malts.

jredmond (7671) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Jay, via Dany/GGB, I believe? Pours a deep brownish black with thin tan lacing. Aroma is rich roast, espresso and bitter chocolate. The roast is pretty mild in the flavor though, levaing lots of room for the balance of the beer to really shine. Notes of bitter chocolate, espresso, wood and tobacco compliment each other well, careful not to overpower one another.

Vignale (3374) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2013
Flaska från SB. 13,5%. Något konstigt flyter överst i flaskan och sedan i glaset. Tror först att det är mögel, men det är nog snarare vax. Inget skum alls, trögflytande, kolsvart. Fin söt och fruktig doft. Torkad frukt, portvin, molass, kaffe och vax. Smaken går i samma stil som doften. Alkoholvärme, tjock trög vätska, lätt beska. Riktigt god men de små växöarna störde upplevelsen ganska mycket. Konstigt, har aldrig sett något liknande.

1an. Bourbon så det sjunger om det. Underbar. Perfektion och världsklass. Cassino levererar

beer_est_deus (1163) - örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2013
Totalt svart öl med litet och mörk brunt skum. Doft: Gräddkola, blommor, wiskey, trä, vanilj, choklad, rostade och kanderade nötter. Smak: Dajm, kakao, kaffe, honung, rågbröd, barr, apelsin godis, vanilj, gräs, trä. Fasen att jag bara har en flaska kvar nu!
