after4ever (7414) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2013
750, corked and baled. Starting to think this whole series will be consistently great to amazing. Pours black with a sudsy dark tan head and plenty of webby lace. Big sweet chocolate and vanilla nose. Creamy medium body with very soft carb, goes a little watery in spots actually. Chocolate, vanilla, light bourbon, very soft woody notes in the background. Really a nice BP.

Desverger (7369) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle - Pours black with a creamy beige head. Sweet roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and vanilla, slight liquorice, bourbon tinged wooden notes, dried fruits and pleasing roasted finish. Lovely.

Ernest (7217) - 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.

larsga (7163) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2014
Big brown head. Opaque black body goes deep dark red at edge. Deep chocolatey earthy aroma with roasty toffee notes. Sweetish faintly acidic taste of earthy chocolate with funky pine needle notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, slightly flat, mealy mouthfeel. Sweetish earthy mineraly dark chocolate aftertaste with burnt cocos notes. Nice, drinkable, and full of flavour. Complex. (0.75l bottle from wine monopoly Vika, Oslo.)

CaptainCougar (7133) - 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.

blankboy (7124) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
[Bottle (750ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a deep dark amber-brown with a huge lasting frothy beige head and some lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, lightly roasted malt, yeast, light hops and some breadiness. Sweet, malty flavour along with light hops, some herbs and chocolate. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good.

nimbleprop (7106) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 8, 2015
On tap at PPD a while back, pours a deep brown with some creamy, off white head. Nose has quite a bit of caramel and brown sugar, some vanilla, molasses, burnt toast, some dark fruit notes. Flavor has just the right amount of barrel, some char and light smoke, lots of crusty burnt toast, vanilla, caramel, some dark chocolate. Full bodied, but thankfully dry. Well made.

onceblind (6747) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Black pour with a small foamy light tan head. Aroma has some bourbon notes with a bit of dark cocoa and a caramel notes. The flavor is rich and smooth with some sweet caramel flavors, dark cocoa, light oaked bourbon, some wood, and more caramel cocoa tones. Really tasty and big with caramel and chocolate bourbon notes.
