hawthorne00 (2830) - Melbourne, - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 15C. Black with an inch of tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, prunes, vanilla. Velvety mouthfeel, but quite astringent - goes from very smooth to a little sharp at each sip. Taste has sweet mocha, dried fruits and vanilla. Earthy and tangy. Slight alcohol burn. Bitterness almost pops out at the end with astringent coffee and late-arriving dried orange peel. Deep and interesting, but doesn’t quite mesh as a whole. Might well come together on keeping, but very good now.

GlasgowTAD (590) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Pours opaque black with a huge, light-brown head which lingers around for a few minutes before receding to a foamy layer around the circumference. Aroma is malty sweet, brandy, slight raisins. Taste is raisins and date sweetness initially, followed by cocoa, cake mix which leads to a warm brandy-ish finish. Medium-full bodied with a rich mouthfeel.

PabloZab (520) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 17, 2015
Tap (Szynkarnia, Wroclaw). Barwa brunatna, bezowa piana, niezbyt trwala redukujaca sie do cienkiego kozuszka. Aromat slodowy z wyraznymi nutami sherry, owocowymi; intensywny, slodkawy z przyjemna subtelna nuta palona w tle. W smaku mocno slodowe, palono-owocowe z delikatnie rozgrzewajaca nuta alkoholu. Posmak slodowo-owocowy. Piwo tresciwe ale jak na swoja moc dobrze pijalne.
