Bottle with Tim E. Aroma of marker pen, richness. Taste is great, soy sauce, bit of fruit. Vinous, only a touch of the booze surprisingly. So fruity, bit of caramel, touch of liquorice, burnt, bit of spice. Great. Thanks Tim and congratulations!

Bottle with TimE. Nose is berries, chocolate, pepper, soy sauce. Cloudy black with lace. Woody, roasty flavor, berries, oxidation, chocolate syrup, still very bitter and hoppy. Peppery, with lots of umami, bonito flakes, wine, raisins. Awesome stuff, still great. RexTalionis (3729) - FINLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle. Black in color with a tan bubbly head. Ripe dark berries, smooth coffee in aroma. Rum and dark raisins in taste. Smooth mouthfeel. Vinous finish. Gut though. Dark chocolatey finish. Very drinkable though. Vinous end. I like it. Ok VastActiv (6942) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2016
Bottle 0.5l at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Special thanks to Markku from Pikkulintu! Bottle number: 04862. Colour is black with very small brownish head. Aromas and flavors: Some plum, coffee, dryness, chocolate, some spices? harshness, berries? and roasted malts. Has some elements from aging but overall extremely interesting. bytemesis (8250) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Thanks to nimbleprop for this aged whale. Pours inky black, very small brown head, dissipates very quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is loads of molasses, brandy, some anise/licorice, chocolate and hints of coffee, raw alcohol. Flavor is fully sweet, light bitter. Medium light body, oily mouthfeel, abv is totally masked other than the nose. Shockingly well preserved for as old as it is. Slayed.

Decent imp! ngeaney (97) - SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2015
Pitch black and was quite oily with a thin light brown head. The aroma is wonderful and rich, dark chocolate and roasted coffee also some wood and dark sugar. Flavour started out with a mild caramel sweetness, mild coffee and chocolate and was very smooth with a nice bitter chocolate after-taste. Some port wine, dark fruits like raisins and plums with the smoothness of the mouth-feel being the key to the success of this beer. SperkeleForce (791) - FINLAND - JUN 27, 2015
