Torrefacto (767) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2014
Color negro con espuma beige duradera. Aromas de frutas confitadas, azúcar candy, tostados y canela. Cuerpo denso, inicio de dulzor de frutos rojos medio-alto, canela y final de amargor moderado y tostado. Interesante y rica mezcla de imperial stout y belgian strong dark ale.

ShivanDragon (1961) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2014
26-12-2014, verjaardagsbiertje.
schenkt zwart met volle fijne schuimige bruine kraag. Aroma is prima ondanks het feit dat ik wat verkouden aan het worden ben, volmoutig, chocolade en alcohol, prima !.
Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig/redelijk bitter (mij iets aan de te bittere kant voor zo’n bier), sterke smaken, stevig gemout (geroosterde en gebrande mouten), volle chocolade, mocca, volle body, romig van textuur in de mond en blijft na een tijdje gewoon van de zoetigheid aan je lippen plakken. koffie zorgt voor de droge tonen in de mond. In de afdronk komen de koffie droogte en het bittertje ook weer terug. Mooi en goed bier, maar niet zo super als ik gehoopt had (komt door de iets te bittere smaken).

snoworsummer (2850) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 25, 2014
From a bottle. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Tastes like chocolate, burnt coffee, burnt toast, dry hops, and woody booze. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like woody booze, chocolate, dry toast, and nutty roasted malt.

Black with big frothy rich light brown head. Aroma is dark roasty, chocolate, licorice, pepper, wood. Flavor matches. Lighter full body. Creamy. Smooth. Finishes with a mild flurry of bitterness, dry and woody. Very nice

Pours a black color with a thick beige foamy head. Aroma of roasted malt. Taste is of brown sugar, molasses, and coffee. A roasted coco bean aftertaste that lingers on the tongue.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Bottle. Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is Belgian sugar and roasted malt. The taste adds brown sugar and chocolate. Full texture, warm and smooth feel. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
