The darkest brown head I have ever seen. You can actually feel it going straight to your head as yo drink it. Huge bourbon, cooking chocolate, coffee roast. Super full bodied, as yo wold expect. Probably doesn’t as give as much as you would hope, but still a mutha of a beer. Rich, decadent though not as filthy rich as the original damnation.

HonusWagner (1331) - Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Thanks to whoever shared this at CCB. Taste chocolatey, heavy bourbon presence, alcohol not exactly well-hidden, sweet. It’s ok, but not the kind of thing I really want to try again.

Draught sample @Brugs BF 2014, ZO. Pours a viscous pitch-black with very inviting small mocha head. Heavy, sluggish aroma of caramelised bourbon vanilla, liquorice. Impressive how easy this is to sip, with abv fumes reduced to a minimum, putting many a cheap macro bourbon or amped Porto to shame in this respect. Well-rounded, with none of the bottom-fermented Eisbock side aromas as sardine oil or soy. Sticks to the ribs, where it blissfully sealed off the tasting tract for an hour or so.-Rather that in the appropriate sampling size than seal my beer spending wallet for a whole month at the bottle price...

Drank from tap with Thijs and John at the ’bierlokaal’ in de Struise brewery. For the 26%, its a truly great beer. Alcohol awesomely mixed with mainly coffee taste. You can feel the alcohol even in your nose, bizar. Beer has good thickness.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Shared by Bryan and James... Thanks! Jet black pour with a giant mocha head that lasted the whole glass. Smell was licorice, chocolate, and roast. Taste was incredibly smooth. Licorice dominates, with rich smooth chocolate. Some dark fruits poke through. Crazy thick and coats the throat going down. No alcohol detected which is insane for a 26% beer. Glad to have had a chance to taste this.
