3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer with thin beige head. The aroma has strong notes of wood, roasted malt, coffee, and alcohol reminding me of bourbon. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, wood, and some coffee, leading to a very dry roasted finish, where a bit of bourbon shines thru. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Birreria Paradiso. Black with dark brown head. Tastes like a red or port wine but with a bitter finish. Interesting but needs more complexity perhaps with aging.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from New Beer Distributors, NYC, vintage 2008, 2½ years old
The color is pitch black; the head is medium sized, beige, but not persistent. Very strong aroma of tar, roasted malts, liquorice, coffee, phenols. Strong body, but also strong alcohol upfront; the first flavor to pick are liquorice and tar, followed by roasted nuts and light biscuits; there is a touch of vanilla; luckily the sweetness, moderate, wins over the black malts; the final is very warming. Very good, mature.

Alkoholischer aber ausgeglichener dunkler Malzantrunk.Später bilden sich hier cremige Schokoladennoten, der Alkohol wird schlagartig offensichtlich und brennt in der Nase. Süßlich, vollmundig, gut. Geringfügig herb. Danke an den Doppelbock für das Bier! /12/13/13/9/13
