benhwilkinson (24) - Little Soudley, Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2007
Bottle on sale at the molen in Bodegraven. Jet black in color almost like oil! Various flavors, chocolate, coffee, fruit. A lot going on!! A very complex beer. I did enjoy it but I preferred the Rasputin from the molen.

2009 bottle. extraordinary aroma of coconut, bourbon, wood, honey and vanilla. taste of wood, hazelnut, bourbon, raisin and some alcohol in a very good way. mouthfeel is perfectly smooth and silky. finishes with a great, lingering sesation of dark chocolate and chilipeppers at the back of your throat. the aftertaste is delicious and longlasting and you really never want it to dissapear. stunning beer, but still it would improve with age and I can’t wait to try an older one. thank you Dave!

250ml Bottle 2005 Vintage 9% abv. It pours pitch black, thick and oily in the glass creating a small but wonderful deep brown head. The wonderful roasted aroma, with the coffee and chocolate notes and a slight hint of vanilla, tar and wood. So complex and as it warms it becomes even better But nothing can prepare you for the taste that is about to follow. The roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, wood notes, some distant ripe fruit. So many flavors , so wonderfully balanced together. I’m very fortunate to have 4 more bottles in the cellar.

BillieMaria (21) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2006
Bottled. Sampled at Akkurat. 295 SEK for 25 cl. Compact, thick black colour. Beautiful colour. Smells thick from oak and tannins. Heavy, big aroma. Vineous. Prune compote. Flavour: Clear mint tone with madeira. Italian red wine appears to be like soda in comparison. This is a big beer! Huge aftertaste that lats long. A good, balanced finishing bitterness. Oaky flavour. Heavy flavour from bitter chocolate a la high cocoa with low sweetness, that makes the palate very dry. Dark sugar. Bitter boil coffee. Bit nutty. Honey. Flowery notes that comes late. Salty licorice comes late. A beer to be sipped slowly as a dessert. This is an aquired beer. I love this beer. And the brewery.

Bouteille. Glenfiddich Warehouse 68, Stockholm. Mousse brune-crème qui s’estompe pour laisser place à un anneau de dentelle collante et quelques nuages épars à la surface. Couleur brune opaque avec reflets ambrés à la lumière. Arôme de fruits confits/ noix/ vanille douce/ subtile note de café/ léger houblon floral. Goût richement malté, alcool chaleureux, amertume légère mais persistante, notes de tanins de chênes. Grande complexité, bière époustouflante, mais peut-être l’alcool est-il un peu trop prononcé, masquant des saveurs qui mériteraient davantage d’épanouissement! Tout de même, un pur plaisir sensoriel!

An out of this world experience in my books! This beer was just perfect (and more). Drinking it was such a multifaceted experience, and to add to it all I was also in the most <a href="http://ratebeer.com/View-User-9002.htm& perfect company , finishing the most perfect dinner of mussels at Akkurat in Stockholm.

Pundarquartis (19) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle. 2007 vintage. An aroma of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, raisins, oak, fudge etc. that invites you to a wonderful taste that is perfectly balanced with no taste taking over the show. It feels quite different on the palate, however, much more carbonation that I expected but this isn’t a bad thing, quite the opposite. It looks beautiful in the glass, pitch black with a brown head. Quite possibly the best beer of all time.
