CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2013
75cl bottle: pours a mostly opaque black with dark ruby mahogany edges and a large creamy beige froth of head that leaves fine lacing behind as it subsides. Has a sweet dark caramel and molasses nose with hints of smoke and chocolate. Starts with good fullness and fine carbonation with sweet dark caramel and chocolate malts, notes of plums and a subtle roastiness and mild noble hop bitterness before a drier smooth semi-sweet finish. Very true to style, complex and certainly drinkable.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle pours with a deep mahogany body that supports a mocha looking head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, burnt malts, some earthy maltiness and faint dark fruity esters off in the background. The taste is rich inviting goodness coming from the likes of dark roasted malts to burnt malts and then moving into chocolate and earthy malt goodness. This is just rich and deep and fudge brownie yum. I get faint sweet dark fruity esters echoing away far off in the distance. Yummers!

Not too much barrel. For sure a solid beer. Again maybe not the style most suitable for barrel aging.

Plovmand (6176) - Helsinge, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours jet black with a creamy dense beige head. The aroma is bourbon, vanilla, oranges, chocolate and hard roasted malt. The flavor is hard roasted, ripe fruit, licorice, bourbon, vanilla and chocolate. Nice one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6162) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
On tap @ Public House in Vegas. Very dark brown with mahogany highlights. Meaty broth malty nose with seductive bourbon sweetness. The palate opens sweeter than expected, given the nose: vanilla, light smoke, sweet figs, molasses, bread crusts. Made me pay attention in a good way! Awesome!

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black. Aroma is moderately malty (horse feed, wort, cereal, caramel, chocolate syrup), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean, slightly husky. Medium to full body, creamy/syrupy texture, soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Really hard to get past the terrible malt...very raw/worty/vegetal. There are some nice elements behind that struggling for your attention, but they can’t compete. Almost drinkable in the mouth, but again the aftertaste reminds you of the dirty/clunky malt. A nice idea, but poorly executed.
