JBPortland (884) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 23, 2014
22oz bottle pours dark oily black with a small thin head. Nose is boozy dark fruits, earthy wet coffee grounds, baker’s cocoa. Taste is rich old burnt coffee and some fruity plum, raisin, a touch of sweet fruit acidity adds a strange dimension. Finish is boozy bitter dark chocolate, plum, some sublte fruity tartness. A bit weird, maybe past it’s prime.

Bottle 22oz. Pours black/very dark brown. Low beige head, nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, chocolate, slight smoke, alcohol, faint soy sauce. Taste is of vegetal stuff, roasted malt, old cold coffee, bitterness, sugar, chocolate, alcohol. Palate: Full bodied. Low carbonation. Sticky texture. Overall: Not too sure these beers make an awesome blend. Good for sure.

mathieuc (1446) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle shared by tom10101 at his "2K tasting", thanks and congrats on the 2000th rating!! Pours a really dark brown and is topped by a really light foam that leaves light lacing. Nose is of smoke and booze, roasted. Taste is sweet and big but still really drinkable with roasted flavors accompanied by some slight green peppers. Body is full, mouthfeel smooth and creamy. This was interesting but not much more than "Good" really.

tom10101 (3010) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle (22 oz). From drewbeerme, thanks! Very dark brown with reddish reflects, a medium mostly diminishing beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, smoked notes, citrus, boozy notes, chocolate and some dark fruits. Taste is moderately sweet with roasted malt/coffee, light vegetal presence, alcohol, smoke, tobacco and light dark fruits. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel. Aroma and taste are both quite complex, but the balance is average at best. I think that the 4 beers used in the blend are better than the blend. Components from each of them are recognizable, but it doesn’t get together in a good way. Cloying. Decent RIS.

Sample from bottle at Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, probably the best beer for on the road I’ve ever had. Thanks for sharing Kermis! Pours pitch black with a small tanned head. Aroma is quite sweet with molasses, licorice, chocolate, alcohol and some roasted malts. Taste is sweet with licorice, molasses and some roasted malts and chocolate. Medium to full body, soft carbo. Nice stuff, bit a bit too sweet for my liking.
