BelgBeerGeek (1308) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 24, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2011 head: none , even when poured in very very high
colour: dark coffee brown
smell: alcohol, coffee licqour, rich dark chocolat, very very strong, stingy in the nose , bit of vanilla and oak, sweet/candy , very nice !
taste: very salty malty start, coffee , burned malts , malts and malts !!, very stingy alcohol, candy , bit of anis and lots of herbs/spices , aftertaste is oak , bitter and dry , overall palate is bitter and alcoholisch , very grassy aftertaste , taste is good only the alcohol overwhelms it a bit too much , wouldve been better if it had just the warming stomach feel like the struise 26% beers have .... so the 8 is mostly based on the start and the aftertaste of the beer excluding the alcohol taste ... and even tough you sip this bottle for 4 hours like i did , expect to be drunk !!

Pour is totally carbonation free. Dark color with hints of red. Nose is just divine, smoky, earthy, and sweet. Taste is a bunch of smoke and peat, like a thick glass of scotch. Alcohol doesnt come through near as much as I thought it would. Mouthfeel is heavy.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle at a tasting on 17th Dec. Holy Fuck! This shit is strong. Pours dark cola, pretty much black. No head on it at all. Aroma is a rather intense malt, with a strong hit of alcohol, and slight notes of oak. To quote Ralph Wiggum, "It tastes like burning". Quite hot from the alcohol, it does have a smoothness to it once you get past the Holy Fuck stage.

Bottle 355ml @ Patricks Pub og Restaurant, Kristiansand
Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, alcohol and oak. Taste is very intense malty, sweet and bitter with a very long aftertaste. Texture is oily with flat carbonation.

baraciisch (3119) - California, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Pours a deep black in color with an almost orange tan head.... Aroma is oak and burnt malts.... Flavor is very sweet up front, but gives way to an almost bitter and painful finish.... Syrupy consistency, reminds me of motor oil, finish kinda tastes like it too.. Not the best.

dyetube (1374) - Hurst, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2010
This beer pours a deep brown with no head. The aroma is burnt coffers, roasted coffee, heavy dark chocolate, with a sting alcohol burn. The mouthfeel is sticky, super heavy and extremely bitter with burnt coffee, and dark chocolate. This was obviously heavy on the alcohol! The flavors and smell were awesome hut the strong alcohol really hits the palate and nose hard. Cheers!

hopslovin (194) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Thank you Enzofan. Mahogany pour with no head or carbonation. Dark fruit and caramel/toffee on the nose. Not much hop presence in aroma. Smoke, alcohol, caramel, and oak dominate the flavor. Reminds me of cognac. Medium/full mouthfeel. A bit of heat in the finish. Very, very drinkable for 32% abv. Enjoyable, and I would love to have another.

mabel (8735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2010
[3478-20101113] Bottle. Bandaid boozy wooden barrel malt aroma has a lot of smoke. Hazy, dark brown body with no head and thick legs. Hot smokey peppers and ash flavour has a long smokey aftertaste. Full body is all booze. HOLY CRAP this is spicy -- more like whiskey, not beer.

pootzboy (1696) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2010
Bottle: Pours an opaque black no cap. Aroma is intense peat smoke, oaky and roasty, some tobacco and licorice. This is rich and oily to the palate...a lot like some wild herbal liquer with smokey presense. Flavor: Peat smoke predominates...oily mouth feel....woody, some sweetness, alcohol hidden - only shows up as a salty side note, medicinal, licorice, tar...figging wild stuff. Not an every day drink for me....too much smoke taste
