25 cl bottle @ home. Batch #372: bottled 30.06.2008, BBE 30.06.2015
Aroma is quite stale and odd with licorice, soy sauce, hints of cocoa and alcohol. Flavour is sweet with licorice, brown sugar, syrupy notes and hints of soy sauce. Nicely warming alcohol in the finish. Very oily palate. Better than I expected.

From bottle. It pours deep black with a small dark brown head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with black chocolate and light liquorice notes. Taste is note as sweet as expected with a nice balance with black chocolate notes and light liquorice finish. Body is about average for style with good carbonation and surprisingly no apparent alcohol. Loads of chocolate. Good

Kaatuu snifter-lasiin mustana ja vaahdottomana. Haju on ennen kaikkea maltaisen alkoholinen, mutta muitakin hajuja löytyy. Niihin kuuluu paahteisuus, lakritsisuus, suklaa ja yrttisyys. Maku on todella makean siirappisen maltainen, alkoholinen, paahteisen leipäinen, rusinainen ja suklaatakin löytyy. Suutuntuma on todella tahmea, lähes ällöttävän makea. Alkoholisuuskin tuntuu, mutta pistävyyden sijaan lämmittävyytenä. Kokonaisuutena uskomattoman makea olut, jossa ei 14% ole oikein saatu piiloon (onkohan se edes mahdollista?). Vähemmällä makeudella ja alkoholisuudella tämä voisi olla aivan maailmanluokan olut, mutta nyt vain keskitasoa.

De loins la meilleure de la série, café, mélasse, figues fraiches, chocolat, fudge et alcool bien sûr mais beaucoup plus en harmonie avec le reste du profil.

Shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks a lot, Brad! The beer is dark brown and viscous with just a slight, wispy, dark beige head. The head offers little retention and no lacing. The aroma offers malt, roast, and sweet booze. Though the beer is indeed sweet, it is very well done. Syrupy and viscous with low carbonation. This drinks like a sweet imperial stout. Very interesting. The reviews are all over the place on this one, but I rather enjoyed it. A small serving is ample, but I would certainly have this again.

Full-bodied, perfect, taste lasts for a long time, suitably carbonated, textbook-like, not so distinctive.

Very dark brown color, dark brown small head. Sweet, coffee, solvents, alcohol scent. very sweet, malty, sugary, coffee taste. sWeet and coffee, some of Creme Brulee aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness. I don’t like my beers sweet and this is over the top for me.
