The Last Tasting at Bruce’s palatial pad. Thanks to our gracious host Bruce for this one. Opaque black - brown beer with a small pale tan head. Nice dark malts and dark chocolate nose. Palate starts soft but has a light fine carbonation. Rich dark malts but not heavy on the palate. Smooth dark chocolate, somewhat Bourneville Biscuit in flavour. Light coconut and a little spicy bourbon. Finishes lightly crisp with a mild alcohol warmth.

Travlr (19434) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Draft at Churchkey. Completely black color, dark brown head that settles to an oil slick sheen. Aroma of peppermint candy wrapped in licorice, wrapped in Tootsie Roll, wrapped in peppermint, wrapped in espresso, dipped in dark chocolate and fried in cocoa. Taste is chewy cocoa covered dark cocoa and peppermint Lifesavers with absinthe and raki. Holy fucken shit fuck, Batman!!! This is good. Want more. Mashallah. Second serving has vanilla, bourbon, brandy. The gift that keeps on giving.

2014-06-28, bottle at CapFlu’s Blomster Bash, 9-4-9-4-18=44
Pitch black color, thick. Huge aroma of coconut, chocolate, marzipan, with hints of tobacco and leather. Full bodied; rich chocolate flavor with complement of tobacco, coconut; the ancho plays an interesting role; some alcohol warmth; moderately sweet.
Great beer.

2014-01-18, Danish tasting session, 8-4-8-4-18=42
Pitch black color with almost no head. Strong aroma of chocolate truffles. Good body; very rich chocolate flavor with medium sweetness and nice tobacco presence, and that background ancho chili character; strong alcohol feeling, some vanilla. Hot final.
This is truly like drinking a chocolate truffle, excellent!

Bottle at Bruce’s in London - huge thanks to the host! Pours rich black with a slight, dark tan cream. Nose has mint, dark chocolate, roasted malts. Medium to big sweet flavor with York peppermint patty, mild chili heat, dark chocolate, chocolate cake, moderate earthy bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming to finish, further mint chocolate, very mild peppery heat. Lovely stuff. I am surprised by all the mint chocolate I get, but I dig it. Very drinkable and deep.
