allmyvinyl (2941) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 26, 2014
250ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours black with a big tan head. Aromas of soy sauce, liquorice, really dark chocolate, some woody notes. Taste has a boozy burn, but rounded out with light spice, sweet dark chocolate, more soy. Lots going on. Lingering deep dark finish. Very nice.

maneliquor (3011) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a massive frothy tan head. Nose is not to my liking. Very syrup and soy sauce like. Taste is much better than the nose comes across. Quite robust and roasty with mild dark chocolate, biscuit and woodiness. Quite hot. Comes across a little bit tangy and sour. Possible infection coming through. Very mild at this stage but I probably won’t be putting any of these aside as it’s definitely detracting from the overall product. A dry sour finish. Not like most of their beers unfortunately

Aromas de maltas tostadas con chocolate, algo de café con toques dulces de frutas pasas y del bosque y acabando con bastante de madera. Cuerpo intenso con 9 vol fantásticos, aunque con fácil paso por boca. Sabores de maltas tostadas con toques dulces de frutas pasas, pasas, higos... algo de chocolate y muy ligero café torrefacto. Aumento de sabores y sensación alcohólica según va calentando. Sensaciones de Licor de guindas?? Muy buena. Pequeños 25 cl para pasar un buen rato. Sabores intensos y con carácter. Para tomar durante un buen rato de tranqui y repetir en cuanto se pueda sin duda.
