UPDATED: DEC 7, 2019 Bottle.Black colour with small beige head aroma is sweet with hint of tobacco and caramel feels a bit dusty but ok for a beer from 2011. BuckeyeBoy (14367) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2019
UPDATED: APR 9, 2019 Bottle pours out black topped with a ring of tan head. Nose is nice big roast malts ash chocolate vanilla coconut wood booze.

Dark brown, no head. Aged all right, light soy sauce, mellow, touch of choc, with a hint of coffee. Ok this is nice...seems to have mellowed out from prior rates.

Bottle nr. 306. Frothy off-white fair mostly deminishing head. Black colour. Heavy malty and moderate hoppy aroma. Heavy bitter flavor. Strong candis and chocolate notes. long complex wonderful finish. Fantastic creamy palate. Garrold (9316) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2017
Bottle, by way of a trade with Scopey, ages ago. Cheers Paul. Shared at Cloudwater. Almost black. Film and a few bubbles of tan head. Nose has the booze soaked chips by the bucket. Dark roast malts. Some soy. Some gravy granules. Taste is sweet and vinous. Trace of roast bitterness. Bit of a thin mouthfeel. Some boozy harshness. Sticky finish. Ok. Not getting the top 50 impy thing, to be honest.

I consumed a whole 75cl bottle of this at a halloween party in the Netherlands a few years back. The pour was black with a creamy tan head. Aromas of plums and dark cherries with some oak and vanilla. Super complex and extraordinarily tasty. SinH4 (13129) - Garching bei München, Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2017
Bottle #1476, many thanks anstei & Koelschtrinker! Black color with beige head. Aroma is intense chocolate, coconut, a touch ethereal, maybe from the cognac. Taste is chocolate, toasted coconut, some chili heat in the back (but where does it come from? it's not boozy), not oxidized at all. Creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation. A masterpiece! anstei (3818) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 2, 2017
Bottle #1476, courtesy of Koelschtrinker, many thanks! Pours darkest brown with a little head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, cognac, slightly boozy, soft green pepper. Body is heavy, strong and sweet, feels very fresh. Strong coffee flavours again. Sweet palate. Oh boy, this is an almost perfect beer. Super balanced, great flavours, just a very nice and complex experience.
