black, thin brown head to a ring fast. Sweet nose is heavy berry, sickly diary and manure contrast, with warmth sweet fruit dominates thankfully. Flavor shows more roast with berry grittiness, more balance than expected. Slick oily end, only light booze but more sugary grit. Better than expected, worse than everything it followed. Couldn’t finish a glass of this.

Douberd (3728) - 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.

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 (1888) - 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.

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!!
