65cl, Vintage 2012, new exclusive American brew Anno 2011, with honey and raspberries, thx to Secret Santa!, very complex Stout, fruity/roasted and slightly alcoholic/woody, not too heavy, balanced, cloudy, nearly no head, very good and original brew, yet very expensive!

wedgie9 (2007) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2014
From notes. Tasted on 6/30/12 at the 1st Annual Chimipalooza, from 650mL waxed bomber bottle. Pours dark cola brown with an average tan head that leaves thin lace. The nose is is dark and milk chocolate, malted milk, tons of roast, some vanilla bourbon, and a nice hint of raspberry. The flavor is much more raspberry forward with the sweet bourbon vanilla and malted milk chocolate up front, moving to all of the bitter roast and dark chocolate on the back of the palate. The body is full with light carbonation and a nicely bitter dark chocolate covered raspberry finish.

hopscotch (9256) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle… Pours dark brown with shimmers of purple and a mid-sized, frothy, beige head. The nose is a roasty, fruity swirl of chocolate, vanilla, dark and red berries, espresso and subtle dustiness. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is chocolaty, fruity, and full of toffee and caramel sweetness with only a trace of berry-like acidity. Finishes fruity and sweet. Rich. Enjoyability is fairly high. Drinkability is low. Bottle courtesy of Elliesbrown!

rondphoto (2099) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle @ Natifest / Cincinnati OH --- Opaque black color, rim head, no lace. Tasted is roasted malt with mild vanilla and maybe a little raspberry. Very little bittering in a very warm alcohol finish. Quite strong, a big alcohol presence, consistency of syrup, wouldn’t take much to be enough.

Erzengel (2922) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2014
Thanks to Don for sharing this one in Cologne! Smooth-mild. Very smooth. Chocolate, toffee, espresso. Deep in aroma, the aftertaste is long, intense-deep, not too roasted. Sourish-fresh, also in the aftertaste :)
Great! 14/13/13/14

Bottle thanks to Keith. Nose is fruity. Very fruity. Almost artificial but just short. Very fruity in the flavor. Pretty nice
