3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Assim como a WB totalmente negra e turva, esouma marrom de formação ainda mais intensa porém de média persistência. O aroma de torrado, defumado e álcool se mostram mais presentes. No paladar o amargor é mais balanceado com o dulçor, média intensidade. Corpo médio e baixa carbonatação. Final de média/longa persistência, não tão complexa quanto a versão WB, tende mais para o defumado e álcool intenso.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Sensoric. Pitch black, with medium to big, light brown, densed head. Medicore head retention and lacing. Rich roasted malts aroma - mainly tons of milk chocolate, also smell is grainy, toffee-sweet, sharp woody, also slightly vanilla and cognac notes. Taste is semi-sweet, lightly bitter in the middle and . Full body, oily, thick texture, soft carbonation, finish is bitter and oaky, slightly warming in the end. This RIS is above average, nicely balanced with moderately oaky character, pretty different from the regular version - this one is not so obviously sweet. Barrell gives this beer nicely sharp character, which gives nicely balance.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. "Liquid Confidential" guess this is it. Put is coffee black with a medium frothy brown foam. Does not appear overly viscous. Aroma is toasty coffee malt along with faint belgian yeast, a touch of burnt brown sugar, and sweet vanilla. Flavor is sweet toasted malt, cold press coffee, Belgian yeast, and light sweet alcohol. Chili very distant.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Alex’s bottle. A little cognac flavour, but only ok on the base beer in drinkability. Higher on aroma that didn’t deliver.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beer Gonzo shop, Earlsdon, Coventry consumed at Bearded Theory Festival, South Derbyshire, Sunday 29th May 2016 *Moved my rating across as I realised when recycling the bottle today the bottle I had was this cognac version and not the standard version. Pours black with a slim tan head, not too much of a head and the carbonation is light. Thick in the mouth, warming, liquorice the chilli is subtle, very subtle. Roasty and smooth, really soft smooth almost a creamy edge. V.good. A7 A4 T8 P5 Ov16 4.0
