375 ml bottle in Musa, Aberdeen, Scotland.Mortlach (2347) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 18, 2012
Dark brown colour with no head.
Heavy malt, mild sweetness, red wine and roasted malt in aroma.
Sweet berries and heavy malt in vinous flavour. Smooth. Too smooth.
30/06/2011 Birra+ (375ml bottle). Degustazione da Birra+. Nera, intensa, con riflessi color caffè, schiuma quasi assente e poco persistente. Aroma spiazzante, dolciastro, quasi stucchevole, vanigliato e zuccheroso. In bocca è dolcissima, cioccolatosa e vanigliata, con note di cocco ad aggiungere ulteriore dolcezza. Corpo medio, carbonazione soft. Birra senza dubbio particolare, ma decisamente modesta come riuscita e stucchevole anche in dosi da degustazione. Meilby (11495) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2012

Bottle, 375ml corked, courtesy of Meilby. A minimal-sized tan head disappears quickly. Black body, oily pour. Soy sauce, licorice and roasted malts on the nose. A touch of alcohol too. Flavorwise there’s soy sauce, licorice, roasted malts, coffee and a faint touch of dark chocolate. Not much hoppy bitterness going on. Full-bodied and super soft. Lasting finish. Not much warmth going on, but it’s quite sweet. A nice beer indeed. 120211 Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Courtesy of madmitch76, cheers Ken! Corked and caged, the cork was a bear to get off, green bottle pours murky dark mahogany with brown edges and no head. The aroma is all molasses, some chocolate, some mild peatiness and then earthy chocolate and spices. The taste is nice and sweet and smooth with molasses, sludgy chocolate malts and sugary caramel goodness. There’s really no carbonation to speak of but this is a sipping beauty. There’s plenty of lingering sweetness and mild chocolate and dark roasted malts carrying deep into the after taste. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle shared by ibrew2or3 @ Woodshed 1.0! Pleasantly surprised by this as I somewhat expected a hot mess. Instead, I tried something that was aggressive but refined. Fudge, Baker’s chocolate, dark fruit, rich coffee, and molasses with a Belgian influence. Heavy, viscous, thick but not cloying. Appreciated the chance to try. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 24, 2011
