_angst_ (4499) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2016
Bottle shared by someone at another table @ Himmeriget. Pours viscous black with dark brown hints with a a small dark mocha head that leaves some sparse spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and sugary with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge charred wood, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, raisins, ketjap manis, coconut milk, moist soil and bourbon alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, salty, malty and boozy. Mouthfeel is soft, oily, viscous, syrupy, tiny astringent, boozy and full bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter and salty with roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, raisins, ketjap and bourbon. Big, intense and a bit too big and salty to suit me. Better than expected though...

sir__v (2049) - Lille, FRANCE - MAR 22, 2016
Bottle (2013) shared with friend from Laurent - Color: deep dark black beer with no carbonation and no foam. Smell: roasted malt complexity with barrel notes and coffee. Very intensive notes. Chocolate hint. Very amazing complexity. Taste: full body with roasted malt, oily sensation. Coffee and mocha notes. Barrel finish. Good attenuation. You won’t feel the alcohol. Superb finish. Perfect beer. Aftertaste: mocha and barrel notes. Bourbon. Very amazing.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2016 Refrigerated 2015 75 cl brown bottle poured in a snifter. Black with dark brown highlights and small beige head. Aroma is bourbon, thick body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is bourbon, burnt caramel, prune, and alcohol. Reminiscent of a strong dark Belgian ale.

ebone1988 (1371) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle shared with koleminer20 and Gus for his birthday. 2015 vintage. Aroma is booze, lots of booze, barrel, roasted malt, coffee. Appearance is black, tan head, poured slightly thin. Taste is lots of roasted malt, coffee, tons of booze and barrel. Mouthfeel is a touch thin, medium body and carbonation, a ton of booze aftertaste. Overall, this needs some age to be better. This is just a ton of booze.

Disappointed with this one. Too boozy. Leaves you with a burn in your mouth. Had as part of a bottle share. Dark brown with a reddish head.
