Douberd (2585) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2013
Tap at Borefts ’13. Black on the body with a thin beige head sitting on top. Average retention with a medium thick lacing left on the glass. Lighty frutiy aroma with roasted malts and chocolate. Taste has a light sourness but it is overpowered by a roasted malts bitterness. Fruits, cognaq and coffee on the aftertaste. Really thick on the body with good carbonation and lightly sticky palate. Overall very good, I should have gotten another glass of this.

sic1314 (3754) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2013
Borefts 2013. Poured deep dark brown. Aroma of strong coffee, dark chocolate, sweet berries, roast malt. Full body, flavour as the aroma, smooth and fruity, the blackberries coming through. Doesn’t taste the strength.

GothGargoyle (1417) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2013
On tap at Borefts 2013. Black with a good sized chocolate head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is chocolate, blackberry, dates, fig. Full bodied, syrupy mouthfeel, bittersweet on the palate with a slightly harsh medicinal finish. Taste is blackberry, liquorice, chocolate, dates, molasses. Very nice but invokes some memories of cough syrup.

MrHangover (2725) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2013
Draft @ Borefts 2013. Happy to try this treat. Pours a pitch black beer with with a thick, vast brown head on top. Aroma is faintly roasted, red fruits, slightly boozy and some madeira notes. Flavor is sweet and alcoholic, in a good way, with loads of whisky notes and boozyness. Big on the molasses, very long sweet and sticky finish. Epic brew!!

after4ever (6251) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Draft at uber. Pours jet black with a loose and creamy tan head. Big rich roasty nose with sweet juicy dark berry notes woven in. Dense creamy heavy body with soft carb. Roasty chocolatey coffee mid palate with juicy berry notes dominating. Tannins to the berry, almost a vinous quality. Lobg sweet dark roasty finish. Luscious and delectable.
