Scottishchris (369) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Bottle from the hive. Pitch black, small tan head. Coffee, caramel and chocolate. Medium body but oily. Soft carbonation. Sweet and dry. Faint liquorice. Is there some chilli heat in there or am I totally imaging it?! Potent.

McNeillR (1632) - SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Thick opaque black with no discernable head and light lacing. Big dark figs and bark and brambley treacle. Rich berry sweetness, indecent tart roast. The berry and light liquorice combo through. Soft but fading clay sweetness. Linger is pepper and bit of soy before a surge of tart bitterness.

fiulijn (16175) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle at Pibar, Lausanne
Black color, brown head. Mild aroma, roasted malt, some cardboard. Good body, good roasted malt and chocolate flavor, but the berry fruitiness and acidity doesn’t blend in very well.
Good and powerful, but not exceptional.

RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle. Black in color, tan head. At first there’s some roasted notes, bit of dark chocolate and sweetish licorice in aroma. Feels quite smooth. Coffee and dark ripe fruits mixed with bit of spicy vanilla in taste. Vinous vibes towards the finish. Quite tasty sipper.
