yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. More or less black in color, with a dense, finger-thick light tan head. The aroma is sort of boozy, with dark chocolate and roasted malts, some cocoa. Dark chocolate, coffee, some licorice notes and a touch of the booze. Cocoa. Lots of chocolate, coffee and some licorice and vanilla in the flavor. Full-bodied and smooth on the palate. Semi-sweet. Lasting finish. Nice blend of flavors and aromas in this one, but it’s a bit one dimensional. 141018

allmyvinyl (3601) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2014
375ml bottle from Brewdog AGM 2014, shared with jeevan. Pours opaque black, thick tan head. Aromas straight off of tiramisu. Boozy chocolate and coffee, light coconut notes, maybe woodiness actually. Taste brings it together nicely, lingering sweet sherry notes. Medium body, packs a lot into the strength. Lovely.

Vestergaard (394) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours pitch, oily black with a tiny, brown head. Aroma has wood, filled chocolates, sweet cognac, bitter roast, sweet, jam-like fruits or berries, alcohol sweetness and some coffee. Taste again has these chocolaty flavors, that blends really well with the alcohol and the fruityness, that can best be described sas filled chocolates. Dry, wooden bitterness, but also a goodd deal of roast. Lots of coffee as well. Tastes like more than 8% abv, imo. Full body and a low carbonation.

Beergaard (90) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2014
Dark beer with a very small nearly non-existing head, nearly no carbonation as well. Aroma and taste of malt, coffee, roastiness, licorice and some hops. Thing this might unfortunately have been the last part of the keg.

angel77 (1017) - oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 10, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en el lúpulo en el momento el 08-10-2014. Color negro intenso con espuma oscura que desaparece al poco. Aromas de maltas tostadas con cacaos especias y una mezcla de maderas y licores bastante bien compensada. Cuerpo medio a fuerte con 8 vol pero una buena sensación alcohólica y de licor con un paso por boca más o menos densa y con espuma. Sabores intensos de maltas tostadas con cacao, café ligeras especias, vainillas, y maderas empapadas en licores. Buena combinación de jerez y cognac compensándose uno con otro. Final algo quemado y bastante amargo sobretodo al coger temperatura... lo mejor esta de la mitad del vaso para adelante. Una gran cerveza, bastante buena.
