33cl bottle via trade.
Cuivrée, col d’un doigt ocre.
Arôme note de caramel/malt, moka, houblon léger laissant un beau bouquet fleuri et agrumes.
En bouche, malt grillé restant assez doux le tout sur une pointe houblon légèrement amer et rappelant le pamplemousse. Café vers un expresso épais. Pas vraiment pu y gouter l’usage des copeaux de chêne. olio (10269) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2011

Pours deep dark red, almost black colour with small head. Aroma of salmiac, ripe fruits, lots and lots of hops, roasted malts and liquorice. Flavour of liquorice, salmiac, roasted malts and ripe fruits. Excellent.
Bottle from trade with Scopey, shared with Joes. Dark brown almost black color with a very nice deep dark red glow coming through. No head, just a small off-white lacing. Smell a bit roasty, slightly coffee or caramel, slightly sweet, a little hops and slight hints of wood. Taste alcohol, roastyness, lightly hops. Lightly oily texture but tastes a little thin. Appears stronger than 7,1% ABV. Not dominantly though. ration (2236) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2011
Tap. Pours black as expected. Strong roated malts and hops in the aroma. Oak and other wood feel. Not Bad. Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle from brewdog online. Pours thin black with a medium tanned head. The head disappears fairly quick. Same aroma as 5am saint. Lightly carbonated and slightly oily texture. Bright butterscotch flavours with a hint of smoke. I helped make this and I’m bloomin proud.
