Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - MAY 28, 2012
Tap at CBC shared with Beerbiker and evil stepdad. Black look with a small brown head. Complex aroma of coffee, biscuit, wood, toffee fudge, alchohol and dusty chili. Alchohol flavor, sweet malt, digestives and spice. Too much alchohol, but great complexity and flavormix

jackl (4698) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Tap @ CBC. Deep brown with a massive, thick tan head. The nose is sugar, cinnamon, some espresso coffee and spicy chilis. There’s malty deep toffee, rum, chocolate. This smells hot and sweet indeed. The taste is hot sugary vanilla, some roasted coffee and chocolate. Notes of baked banana and caramel. This beer’s very sweet, but balanced out by some big roasty characters on the lightly spicy finish. Full and thick body, sticky. Overall, quite nice, but I would only want a few ounces of this. What started as a very high rating got marked down as I worked my way through this overly sweet beer.

JanLaursen (3220) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Draught at CBC. Deep black beer with half a finger of beige head. Aroma of vanilla and milky coffee boiled down to a Viennese melange coffee. Taste is very sweet with lots of vanilla, delicious, but I miss some bitterness to balance out the syrupy of this beer.

ClubGonzo (4130) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Black body, medium white head. Intense filter coffee to the nose, followed by mocha, cocoa, dark chocolate, molasses and hints of pepper. Taste is big, no - HUGE coffee notes, cocoa, sweet malty tones, hints of leather and pepper. The vanilla has seemingly drowned, and the chili is very subtle. OK, but despite the complexity this beer doesn’t really rock my world.

thewolf (11193) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Tap @ CBC, 2012.
Pours completely black with a staying, creamy, brown head. Aroma has plenty of coffee, chocolate, light peppery, softly roasted. Medium carbonation, nice creamy and mildly dry mouthfeel. Flavour starts off very sweet with some brown sugar, then coffee and dark chocolate takes over and adds a sprinkle of chili burn. Nice.
