Bottle, black, thin tan head. Dusty, butterscotchy nose, lots of big malty notes and vanilla. Flavours of big black coffee and ashy, varnish-like elements almost (but in a good way somehow!). Almost fruity-chocolate flavours. Lovely viscous mouthfeel. Overall - terrific.

In bottle. A black beer with a fair tan head. Aroma of cacao nibs, burnt oak, honey and alcohol. Similar flavours and very bitter with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Alcohol is fairly prominent. I prefer this to the regular version.

sample at Chriso’s pre GBBF tasting. quite the opposite of the other kopikat beer i had. the base beer seems to shine. the barrel aging lends to the beer and doesn’t quite dominate. Chocolatey roastiness with underlaying barrel aging, doesn’t drink like a 10%er. Another very impressive English beer

BenH (2613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle. Black with a little tan head. Aroma not as pronounced as it’s brother, slightly vegetal, hint if whisky, hint of vanilla and licorice, cold coffee. Taste has cold coffee, chocolate, tiny hint of whisky. Sweet and bitter. A solid beer but not as good as the other one

Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2012
Off keg at port street beer house Manchester. One of my favourite beers of all time. Massive sweet chocolate and coffee. A sort of mousse like texture to it. Just incredible.

On tap. Smell, taste, and consistency of well roasted coffee. Some bourbon, chocolate, dark berries, oak, warming alcohol.

Scopey (7649) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
Keg at CP&K. It pours jet black, with a tan head. The nose is very boozy, whisky, smoke, oak, vanilla, dark fruit (fig and date), dark chocolate and mint. The taste is boozy, rich-roast coffee, roasted malt, smoke, whisky, charcoal, floral, hay, smoke, a hint of honey and liquorice, with a dry, boozy finish. Full body and fine carbonation, with an oily mouth-feel. This is a lot rougher than the other barrel-aged version due to more obvious alcohol presence. Flavoursome, but tough going.
