One of my favorites from SN. Look forward to the release each year. Great price point. Not as boozy as last years fresh release. Drinks well now or with a little age.

kbudd19 (911) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle vintage 2014. Black oily colour with two fingers of chocolate mocha head. Aroma is roasted malts, anise, and coffee. Taste is anise, followed by roasted malts, and coffee, finish has some roast but is quite smooth, fu,l bodied mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Nice and roasty, this is a really solid impy.

Poured from bottle, deep dark black brown with light brown low head. Aroma is nicely complex with notes of coffee, chocolate, dried fruit, herbs and a trace of liquorice. Taste is very well balanced, sweetness, bitterness and body well held together. Notes of coffee, caramel, dark bread, dried fruit, some chocolate and a trace of butterscotch.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 25, 2014
Olajosan folyó, sűrű és fekete ital ez, ami likőrös, maláta kekszes, illatos dohányos, kakaós, kesernyés, medvecukros, fásan fanyarkás és igen száraz. Remek itóka!

Pours a deep black with a thick medium chocolate head. Aroma of smokey cocoa with a hint of coconut. Taste of dark chocolate, smoke and a hint of coffee. Simply put... delicious

@ julafton med fader och fadern. Mycket chocklad i aromen, väldigt balanserad i smaken, rostade kaffe toner. Fantastisk

bottle, merci Monsieur le Docteur! Deep black, with a brown head. Chocolatey nose with soem coffee. Almost oily consistency. Full-bodied, dark, dark malts, roasty, with chocolate and freshly ground strong coffee, also some dried fruit in the background - dates, figs and apricot. Delicious.
