Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014 - yellow session. Aroma is huge rich dark choc, vanilla booze and some hot alcohols, but it is in balance. Thick black caramel coloured pour with a fleeting tan head. Viscous. Flavour is sweet complex sugars, figs, jammy. Viscoud/ smooth on the tongue, lovely palate. Very smooth for the abv. Huge depth of flavour. Jammy fruits, vanilla. ’Big deeply lovely’ to borrow a turn of phrase.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014 variety on tap at DLD 2014. Pour is black with a small mocha colored head that turns into a ring quickly. Aroma is very sweet - marshmellows, vanilla extract, chocolate, dark fruit, wood, and bourbon. Flavor is similar with more roast and bitterness added in to help balance out the sweetness. If you are a fan of desert beer, than this is the king of them. Great.

Tap @ CBC. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Booming aroma of marshmallow, toffee, dark chocolate, sweet cherries and dark sweet fruits. Lots of vanilla. Taste of bourbon, vanilla, marshmallow, chocolate fudge, toffee and sweet fruits. Quite a booming beer.
As Phredrik stated it: "If this beer was a woman, it’d be Pamela Anderson. You’d taste her once or twice, but you wouldn’t bring it to dinner with the family."
