Creedence (309) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2017
Sample from bottle on graduation night. Pours a treacle black, no head, no bubbles, no carbonation. Looks like an espresso. Smell is big, full of coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, rich porty fruit. Taste is big sweetness, lovely fruity notes, quite roasted coffee bitterness and just a hint of sour fruits. Big mouthfeel without being too syrupy, nice lasting coffee finish. Delicious.

brewtalita (330) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 22, 2017
Motor oil black, no head, no bubbles. Aroma forest fruit, cocoa powder, vanilla and tobacco. Palate medium, no carbonation. Taste rich and complex, roasty and fruity notes. Salt, umami, smoke and premium dark chocolate all over the mouth, some black currant and a semi-dry finish. No alcohol in taste. Great!

rusos (751) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 16, 2017
Bottle, many thanks to Gurthnar. Black colour, no head. Aroma is complex. Roasted, chocolate, wood, chery, warm cocoa, noble alcohol. Taste is roasted, barrely wood, tobaco, cheries in chocolate, noble alcohol. A bit salty. Maybe a bit licorice. Very complex. Brutal. Very Good.

Lilja (3161) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2017
Flaska några år lagrad, tappad 15/3/13, flaska nr: 8121 av 9972. Smak och doft av mörk choklad, mörk torkad frukt, soja, svarta vinbär, körsbär, sherry, fat med toner av lakrits och kaffe. Fruktig, något sträv, lagom sötma, fortfarande mycket alkohol, något obalanserad, lätt kolsyra och beska.
