Good beer a little more on the sweet side for me. I’ve heard that 2 years is the sweet spot for aging this beer. I’ll definitely be trying the beers that I’ve been aging at year 1 and 2. So far a little more overrated but that’s okay it keeps us beer nerds wanting to collect.

Pours a deep black. Head is a nice tan color. Smell is of roasted coffee, sweet molasses, roasted malts, chocolate. taste is very much the same as the nose. Nice and bitter roasty flavors. This has aged well for three years!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ CBC 2013.
Pours utterly, completely opaque black with a small, creamy, beige rim of foam. Aroma has roasted malts, chocolate, vinious, cocoa and white chocolate. Very little soy sauce. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, light sticky, some chocolate, coffee and a bit of smoke. A very dry finish balances the sweetness very well. Cocoa, coffee and light peppery bitterness with a slight vinious touch.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From tap at CBC. Reddish dark brown with a lasting frothy dark brown head. Aroma is sweet roasted malt with notes of licorice, ground coffee, chocolate and dried fruit. Flavor is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Dry and roasted lingering bitter finish. Good and packed with flavor, but not as spetacular or unique as rumoured.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Almost black, thin tan head. Potent aroma of chocolate, licorice, roasted malt, molasses, ripe cherries and other berries. Sweet malts compete with bitter hops. Exceptionally smooth and creamy, with a little lively carbonation. Finish is long, bitter, astringent, and moderately boozy.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Poured a dark mahogany colour with a thin broken tan head. The aroma is peaty and alcoholic. The flavour is medium bitter, rich, oily, with coffee and liqourice. A super beer that controls the bitterness well and fully justifies its rating.
