Beardbeerman (272) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours a very dark amber topped by about a finger of creamy tanned head showgin great lacing. The nose is smoky, earthy, nutty with some hints of leather. The earthy hops are fairly present. The taste is medium sweet toffee with a smoky/burnt backbone. Medium body with dense carbonation, strong mineral elements lead the finish with a baking soda feature on the tongue. Cheers!

GSAP (583) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2015
Aroma is rokerig met melkchocolade en licht kruidig. Smaak is prima in balans van chocolade, suikers, wat peper en ander kruid, rozijnen en koffie met toffeecream. Donker met beige kraag die lang blijft.

Brown beer, medium tan head. Pretty nice lacing. Nose is malt, roast, chocolate notes, dried fruit. Flavor is a smooth mix of roast, malt and chocolate. Finishes with mild bitterness and roast. Hides the alcohol well. Nice one.

beeebon (310) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Pours a dark amber red-brown with a light tan thin but lingering head. Aroma has a lot going on with berry fruits, brown sugar, yeast, toffee and lightly toasted malts, quite complex. Taste is sweet and lingering light bitter on the finish with a smooth thick mouth feel. Complex and one to take your time over and enjoy properly. Great beer

lello4ever (268) - ITALY - APR 10, 2015
Color marrone con schiuma beige, con un sapore di malto tostato e forse un tocco di cioccolato e spezie, chiude con una punta più amara. Ha proprio una bella personalità.

alteregoo (353) - POLAND - APR 6, 2015
Piana bardzo obfita, kremowa, dość trwała i oblepiająca szkło. Barwa brązowo-bordowa, mętna. W aromacie jest kakao, czerwone i suszone owoce, likier wiśniowy, pestki moreli. Ta pestkowość po ogrzaniu się piwa jest niestety drażniąca, przypominająca stare zbutwiałe drewno. W smaku pojawia się więcej cech stoutu, jest tu troszkę słodkości czekoladowej, jest paloność, są rodzynki, jest i alkohol przypominający brandy. Goryczka alkoholowo-prażona, choć niewysoka to dość długo pozostaje i zalega nieprzyjemną alkoholowością. Wysycenie średnie, podbijające ziemistość i treściwość piwa w odbiorze. Potencjał jest, moc jest, wygląd jest, niestety do poprawy aromat i rok leżakowania w celu ułożenia alkoholu - wtedy byłby to trunek pierwszej klasy. Tak niestety piwo jest zaledwie dobre, lecz nieułożone, niezbalansowane...
