Sampled at esbls. Thanks Richard. Black that lets mo light in. No foam. Barely any red. A delicious aroma. Huge malts. Chocolate, roasted notes, whiskey. The flavor equals the deliciousness. Wood. Everything is big and really nice. Flavors move in and out. Awesome stuff.

Lukaduke (1753) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Pours a deep silky black color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose is big burnt brownie with chocolate sauce and mint ice cream.... irish coffee notes all the way with coffee, whiskey and mint all coming together. The palate follows with a smooth silky mouthfeel and beautiful balance between the heavy roasted chocolate sauce, creamy mint, smooth soft whiskey booze and some lingering woody burnt brownie flavors ! Tasty !

Bottle share at Hampton Inn pre-DLD party. Pour is black with a small brown head. Aroma is of mint chocolate, roasted malt, brown sugar, and alcohol. Flavor is more complex and the mint is pushed more to the background, notes of peppermint, dark chocolate, caramel, bourbon, and spice.

Dr_Fellini (271) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep black with a thin light brown head. Aroma is an astringent mint character, roasted malts, and a hint of burnt cigarettes. Mint is more present in the taste with burnt malts still predominating. Medium body with a lingering burnt malt and minty sweetness. Perfect for Xmas day!

750 ml bottle shared by phaleslu. Pours black in color with a medium sized creamy tan head. The aroma and flavor have a nice mint chocolate chip character, wood, roasted malts, with good whiskey notes. This was quite tasty, but more of a novelty beer for me and didn’t quite make me forget about the Abraxas and BA Abraxas.

hallinghansen (1737) - Odense S, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2013
Trade from Sean9689, thanks buddy. Bottle @ Tottenham vs Tromsø Europa League. Black body with a small brown head. Aroma is dominating after eight (mint chocolate). Flavour is mint, chocolate, whisky. Burning alcohol finish. Different, funny and quite interesting, but the mint is to much though.
