CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 17, 2013
50cl bottle: Pours an oily opaque black with a stringy-lacing beige head. Has a lightly sweet toasted dark caramel and roasted malty nose with some chocolate notes and a touch of tart fruits. Starts with pretty good fullness and well-dissolved carbonation with some semi-sweet dark caramel maltiness, dark chocolate and light horseblanket funk. Finishes slightly drier and bittersweet with a touch of vinous tartness. Has pretty good complexity and balance throughout.

RexTalionis (2403) - FINLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours black in color with a small tan head. Oak and barrel at first, notes of fruity red wine, roasted coffee and darker chocolate in aroma. Both tart and smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate, vinous and sour notes mixed with some barnyard. Interesting combination and seems to work quite well for that matter. Chocolate and notes of red wine and dark berries in aftertaste.

McNeillR (1135) - SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Clean oily black, wisp of a tan bubbly head. Lovely fishy grilled tang to the sugary nose. Balsamic buzz throughout without being overly tangy. Lush peaty padding throughout without being overly smoky. Really well tapered on all counts. Cooling thick mouthfeel. Clean savory finish. Lovely and in a clear bottle.
