wedgie9 (1792) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 20, 2013
From notes. Tasted at Curtis’s house, probably early 2012, from a waxed and capped 650mL bomber bottle. Pours nearly black, opaque dark brown with an average tan head that leaves thin lace with some lacy residue. The nose is darkly roasted coffee and dark chocolate with a hint of burnt and green hops bitterness. The flavor is full of dark chocolate and molasses with cocoa powder and a touch of vanilla. The body is full with average carbonation and a long darkly roasted and touch of vanilla finish.

Idiosynkrasie (3241) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2014
650ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with small, frothy, rapidly diminishing and completely fading, tan head. Dark malty aroma has hints of chocolate and black cherries, bitter hoppy overtones. Taste is dry hoppy, an unpleasant bitterness of "burnt something" has a medicamentous character, repressed dark malty background with a touch of chocolate and black cherries; somehow thin and light-bodied. Don’t like it.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with pillowy tan head, settles fairly quickly with thin lace. Aroma is sweet and fruity, mild sweet, toasted malt. Tastes sweet, nutty malt, mild soy sauce, with a mild chocolate/cocoa finish. Not a big fan of the malts used. Better as it warms. Moderate carbonation and medium body.
