Pitch black, dark brown head. Massive aroma; malt, coffee, liquorice, chocolate. Flavor adds salty liquorice, has coffee, overloads of malty sweetness. Burnt finish, warms you up. Yeast adds some richness and roundness to the aroma. ABV not as well hidden as in the first edition.

Bottle, dated November 5, 2007, so this beauty is 9 years old. Cheers, spacecoyote! This has held up remarkably well -- there’s only the tiniest hint of oxidization, and there’s still more than enough burnt chocolate / roasted malt bitterness to counter the sweetness of that huge malt bill. It’s boozy but not hot, and all of the different flavors meld together fantastically.

Beerhammaren (1691) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle from Alko. Rated at Hanniku’s cave 2.0. Pours pitch black with low head. Aroma is roasted malts, burned, alcohol, dark coffee, dark chocolate, tobacco, dark fruits. Flavor is mostly same. Still quite rude beer after 8 years of maturation. Still... Swell!

StoutHead (945) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours pitch black and generates a brown head if poured from on high, but at almost 8 years old it dissappears very fast. Aroma of roasted malts, fruits and alcohol. Taste is of roasted malts, dark dried fruits - like prunes and raisins, chocolate, resin, licorice, wood, molasses, soy sauce and alcohol. Very complex. Has a very long finish of roasted malts, wood and alcohol. Body is above medium but is surprisingly thin for a 16% beer. Very little carbonation but that’s to be expected I guess. Very good though - a real slow sipper.

biirusaikou (2585) - - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle shared, thanks Jonno. Wow, this is a beast, feels like a barrel-aged spiced Porto wine, lots of dark cherry, oak and whiskey, long complex finish. Devilicious stuff, to be sipped and enjoyed at a gentleman’s pace.

willisread (2543) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks Jonno. This bottle is 8 to 9 years old. Lots of booze and dark fruit in the nose: plum, raisin, prune, cassis. Lots of deep, rich flavors of wood and booze in the nose as it warms. Body has thinned out, with very little carbonation but wow, what a nice aged beer. More booze and fruit in the mouth with a long lasting and coating finish. Fantastic.
