VastActiv (3072) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle 0.75l at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Bottled 11/12-2007. Best Before 1/12-2017. Colour is deep black with slightly brownish white head. Aromas and flavours: Hints of coffee and chocolate, elements of red wine and roasted malts. This is very heavy stuff and makes me sweat. This one has aged very well and doesn’t taste old.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Rated on 4-11-2009 at Fort Wayne Gathering. 2005 Bottle. This beer pours a tan small head with poor retention, opaque body, no carbonation, and next to no lacing. The Aroma is malt, coffee and roasty. The Taste is malty, roasty, bitter, and alcohol. The Palate is lightly tingly and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, this beer being a 2005 bottle has held up quite well and the flavors are quite tasty.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Rating No. 4,500. 2007 bottle shared by thirdeye11 in August 2012. Dark brown pour with an off-white head. The aroma is full of dark fruit, chocolate and smoke. The flavor is similar. The smoke comes up front, with some chocolate, caramel and dark fruit. Fairly sweet overall. For some reason I wrote "smoked oysters" on my notes, but not sure why I did that. Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

RexTalionis (2603) - FINLAND - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle 75 cl. BBE 1/12/2017. Sweet, more to the portwine in aroma. Quite strong and boozy on taste, some salty notes along with soya sauce in taste. Something wrong with the bottle? A bit weird in taste, some old coffee perhaps too. Some bitterness in aftertaste

Bottle from The Beer Stein back in 2008. This beer was infected, as there was some sourness to it...not like the other ratings here.
