Melker (204) - Varberg, - JUN 19, 2014
On tap at The Roundhouse Taproom Hong Kong. Got a free sample of it and came back for more later. Really nice aroma with chocolate, berries, sherry, whiskey. Very sweet taste. Notes of cashew nuts in there also. Like it a lot.

On tap at Øltorget, Mathallen, may 28th 2014. Full black body with a small brown head - decent size for the strength. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted malt, wood and sherry. Taste of strong coffee, sweet licorice and sherry, alcohol, robust roasted finish. Chilies feels toned down. Not quite on par with the regular Liquid Confidence, which I’m a big fan of, but still a solid nice brew I’d be happy to have again and again.

rodenbach99 (3138) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
37.5 cl. 12.2% Meilleur avant le 03/10/23. Un liquide brun foncée avec une belle mousse brune qui colle au parois. Un nez de chocolat, de café intense, de fruit rouges. Une bouche tout aussi intense que le nez, des notes de piments fumés s’ajoutent. Une belle réussite.

SlovakSniper (3105) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2014
37.5 cl. 12.2% Meilleur avant le 03/10/23. La robe est noire comme les dents de ceux et celles qui fument des Gitanes. Le col a moins d’épaisseur mais il est toujours généreux de son temps. La dentelle est une affaire qui appartient aux deux genres. Au nez, les parfums de vin de dessert, de torréfaction pimentée, de chocolat et de bois sont subitement ravissants. Au goût, les notes fruitées légèrement aigres cachent un peu la base pimentée et se marient bien aux malts rôtis. En bouche, il me semble que le corps et la texture du liquide sont légèrement dérangés par les transpirations de la barrique. En finale, le vin fortifié dénature quelque peu le stout aux piments mais me rappelle la senteur de la peau de cette Hongroise un peu folle qui a hantée l’année de mes 16 ans. Plus facile à boire que son grand frère, ce stout impérial est fait pour le partage, pour les gens qui s’intéressent aux accords du participe passé avec être et avoir ou pour les gens nés d’un père Slovaque et d’une mère Micmac.

planky84 (2103) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen. Black pour with a tan head. Aromas of walnut, soy sauce, coffee and smoked meat. Full on vinous attack in the flavour- spicy fruit, strawberry, splash of dark fruit and dark chocolate. Full on throat warming, slow alcohol burning goodness. Exceedingly good!

laiti (5629) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
37,5 cl bottle (12,2%) @ olio, BBE 03.10.2023
Aroma is sweet with oaky tones, sherry and some licorice. Flavour is rather sweet and oaky with sherry and some spicy tones. Too sweet and sticky, I liked the basic version better.

lusikka (6206) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
375 ml bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, syrup, cream and herbs. Flavour of roasted malts, aggressive tart wooden notes, syrupy sweetness, herbs, some grass and some grains. Full bodied and thick mouthfeel. Aggressive dry, wooden, warming finish. Cognac version was better than this and better than the original.

375ml bottle, vertical with Cognac and regular versions

Pours pitch black with a small head. Aroma of roasty malts, dark chocolate, spices, syupy sweetness, toffee, pepper and woody notes. Taste is stingy spicy, sweet, woody and roasty with some dark chocolate and pepper notes. Finish is sweet, stingy and syrupy with notes of dark chocolate, pepper and warming chili notes. Feels sweeter and a bit stuffy compared to the other versions.

olio (6139) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 19, 2014
375 ml bottle. BBE 10.10.2023.
Pours dark red-mahogany color with a small head. Nice chocolaty and roasty aroma, mild smoky notes, wood, tar, chili is a bit more present, some wood also. Cocoa and tar on the flavor, chocolate, malty notes, some vanilla, chili and wood. Nice, chili is a bit overwhelmed by sherry, slightly worse than cognac version.
