hawthorne00 (2768) - 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.

PabloZab (462) - 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.

dambor (164) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 9, 2015
On tap. Pours black with a nice head. Aroma: roasted malt, sweet coffee, raisins, dark fruit. Taste: a lot of roasted malt with coffee taste, followed by plums and a hoppy aftertaste. It is pretty heavy in taste, which makes you immediately understand this is an old ale. ABV is not super high (7%) but the heaviness is present. I understand it is on purpose and I like it.
