Beerman6686 (4220) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2010
This poured an almost black color with a light tan head. Aroma was deep roasted malts, some chocolate, and booze, lots of booze. Flavor was vinous and a bit astringent with the roasted malts and chcolate floating in the middle. Once again Weyerbacher cannot hide alcohol at all.

750mL corked & caged bottle. A jet-black pour with a MASSIVE mousse-like mocha head. The aroma is filled with loads of cocoa, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, rye, pumpernickel bread, a touch of anise, and a lemony yeastiness that becomes more apparent as things warm up a bit. Goes down medium-bodied and smooth. Just a bit sweet upfront with some caramel and cocoa present. Dark chocolate, rye, and pumpernickel flavors follow quickly. Finishes sour, tart, and bitter with quite a bit of lemon, dark fruits, and roasted black coffee qualities. Some warming alcohol is present, but the 11.8% ABV is pretty well-hidden. Not quite what I was expecting.

From jtclockwork. Gem. Nearly black. Light brown pour. Roasted malt, ash, molasses, tobacco and rich yeasty esthers in the nose. Flavor is loaded with chocolate, coffee, ash, tobacco, molasses, yeast, prunes, raisins and more. Great example of the style. Thanks James!

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Bottle acquired via trade with gothood...BOBBY ROCKS!!! Ebony pour created a thin but sticky khaki head. Aroma is toasted malt, ash, dark roasted coffee beans, and cocoa with a definite belgian influence. Flavor shows lots of chocolate, molasses, and caramel with alcohol present. A little hot...this one needs to sit for a bit.

Wow. 750ml bottle. I wasnít sure if I wanted to crack into this one, but I went for it and Iím not disappointed. The beer pours a pitch black color with a thin, almost non-existent tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, Belgian yeast, coffee. Flavor is coffee, roasted malts, yeasty, and just plain rich. Alcohol warming was there initially, but I think as I consumed it I got used to it. Flavor is not overpowering in the alcohol realm.

sample from the bottle at SAVOR on 6/5/10. pitch black pour with a tan head. chocolate and Belgian yeast nose. dark fruits with sugar and yeast mingle through the smooth rounded body. more dark fruits and a touch of alcohol on the finish.

Gachupines (855) - USA - JUN 11, 2010
Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is some dark chocolate and malt. Flavor is very sweet almost cloying. Dark chocolate first but finish is a bit tart. Sticky alcohol sweetness could be toned down a bit. Pretty good but flawed.
