skortila (5161) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2016
Bottled. Full 25cl sample. The aroma has booze, chocolate, roast, some coffee, some vanilla. Black coloured beer with a beige head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has chocolate sweetness, booze, roast, coffee, raisins. Full of complex taste. Medium-full bodied mouthfeel. Light carbonation. Pretty good.

UXO (1406) - CANADA - JUL 23, 2016
Appearance: opaque black with a short-lived loose beige head, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: boozy dark fruit, chocolate, liquorice, dark roasty malt, vanilla. (7/10) Taste: high bitter, moderate-high sweet. (7/10) Full body, soft carbonation, lingering boozy finish. (3/5) Yeah, it’s another 11 years and then some before the BB date, but it’s good to be proactive, right? I went into this assuming that over three years of ageing should be sufficient to allow this thing to smooth out as much as it was gonna. I might’ve been mistaken. Or maybe this thing is never gonna settle down. Either way, it’s a hot, boozy mess. I’m the last one to criticize a hot, boozy mess, because that pretty much describes me (heyyy-ooo!) but this is just… well… I debated using “harsh”, but, yeah, it’s harsh. Not brutal, perhaps, but definitely harsh. And way overrated: if I’m gonna struggle to drink a mediocre beer, at least let me not have to pay fifty bucks a litre for it? (13/20)

0.25 l bottle from ’De Molen’, brewed in November 2012, best before November 2027, shared at ’Beertemple’ with markoijelena. Pitch black, no head. Sweetish, moderately roasty and a bit boozy aroma of dark chocolate, some coffee, licorice, tar, iodine and dark fruits. Very sweet, moderately roasty-malty and a bit alcoholic taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, tar, some iodine and dark fruits, followed by a long, moderately roasty-bitter, rather warming-alcoholic finish. Full body, oily and a little effervescent mouthfeel, almost flat. Good, it’s quite alcoholic but it fits in well, definitely a nice sipper!

250 ml bottle at home. Black coor with brown head. Roasted malty aroma, dark dried fruits, licorice, dark chocolate, caramel, light smoked, wood, alcohol. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma, dark chocolate, licorice, wood, dark dried fruits. Full silky more than oily body with soft carbonation.

BlazerT (471) - POLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle. Jest black, with tiny, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Medium roasted malts and dries fruits - raisins, plums, cherries aroma, also some milk chocolate notes. Taste is moderately sweet thru the whole of degustation. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, finish is little boozy and semi-sweet. In general not as good as it is rated here, conditional, above average RIS.

buteleczka w pudeleczku, warka z 29-11-12. piana z czterech liter, czarne piwo, ziewajaco, nie? aromaty.. bogate. kawa, czekolada, sliwki suszone, moze nawet podwedzane, figi i daktyle, pralinki, drewno... jest na bogato i intensywnie. w ustach ewidentnie slodkie, powtorka z aromatow ale z innym balansem - czekoladowo-owocowym w odbiorze. alko super ukryte. Niemalo ciala, ale spodziewalbym sie cholera wiecej. robi wrazenie, jest WOW, jednak zarazem legendarnosci swej nie sprostal. klasa. ale tylko extraklasa a nie superklasa albo odwrotnie, nie znam sie na tym :)

sebletitje (9033) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2016
Bouteille 25cl, batch# 894/895, brewed 29.11.2012, BB 29.11.2027. Noire huile de moteur, col café au lait, huileux et doré au verre. Arôme au bouquet malté prononcé, grillé, petite note de café et un généreux caramel. Palais est nettement plus agréable que la version Brewdog. Pointe sèche grillée de malté assez succulent, grillé, café avec une touche de mélasse. Alcool est réchauffant, petite note de sucre cristallisé avec une fine amertume en fin de bouche. Le tout prend déjà un petit côté vineux soja sur une fine note douce. Bonne idée en 25cl qui reste tout de même bon à partager à deux.

PhilosophyGuy (305) - Lodz, POLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Piana, niska, bardzo szybko się degeneruje i nie pozostawia po sobie śladu. Barwa czarna, intensywna. Aromat perfumowy, śliwkowy, słodki, likierowy, czekoladowy, cukierki czekoladowe, nutka alkoholu i sosu sojowego, troszkę jakby mleko, gdzieś z tyłu palona kawa. W smaku słodycz, mleczna czekoladowość, następnie nieco nut palonych, pralin belgijskich, ciemnych owoców, likier czekoladowy, pumpernikla. Końcówka jest kawowa i przechodzi w lekką, szybką paloną goryczkę. Alkohol genialnie zamaskowany. Tekstura oleista, przyjemnie oblepia usta. Piwo jest rozgrzewające w przełyku. Co ciekawe po przełknięciu w ustach zostaje gorzka czekolada. Wysycenie niskie. Genialne!
