Bottled as bomba generation 4.the aroma takes some getting used to. Hints of liquorice, chocolate and coffee, plus some tart sour notes from the yeast. Quite a thin mouthfeel for its abv, this is easy to drink, and ends with some quite fresh fruity influence. interesting.

ippopotamo36 (2580) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 15, 2016
0,33 bottle purchased at Johnny Off L. in Rome-Italy, consumed in Kosovo. Bottled July 2014, 18 months old. Pours black with a very dark brown foam, little retention. Nose: licorice root, vanilla, much leather, a bit musty. Also a note of liquor. Nice. Mouth: quite clean but far too watery for the style, perhaps someone would consider this a plus. Again bitter licorice, sourish notes, under spirit cherries. The end is dry with a hint of alcohol. Tasty, not terrific but quite good.

SanDiego1 (42) - ITALY - DEC 10, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore marrone scuro, quasi nero. Schiuma marrone, fine e poco persistente. Aroma di legno, frutta sotto spirito, leggero solvente, stantio. Al palato corpo rotondo, viscoso. Aroma di torrefatto, legnoso, di nuovo nel finale un pò di solvente, acetico, leggero senso di astringenza.

sebletitje (10421) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2015
Bouteille 33cl de et partagée avec Pierre T.
Brune foncée-noire, col moka, doré au verre.
Arôme au bouquet fruité noir, note de brett apportant une impression de cave. Malt grillé, fin chocolat.
Palais est malté, brett prononcé, léger fleuri venant des houblons et apportant une amertume noble anglaise. Le tout est sec et poussiéreux avec un accompagnement de fruité noir, finement épicé.

Mortlach (2525) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 7, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours deep brown with a light but persistent cappuccino head. Aroma of leather, coffee, dark chocolate, hay, dusty cellar. Flavour is rich and complex but a bit messy, coffee, licorice, some sourish notes, medium astringency. High body, medium to light carbonation. Weird...

3.6
fellebag (1556) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2015
33cl bottle. Dark brown layer. Opaque. Aroma is heavy leather, berries, prunes, earth, tar. Taste is sweet of cakes and cookies, chocolate and coffee.

3.8
spacecube (1785) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
330ml bottle, pours black, no head, Brett stands out, with light roast malt, dark dried fruit, body light, texture creamy and oily, light tartness, its balanced well, and super easy to drink, very light and easy going. Nothing too complex, dangerously drinkable.

likeatrainwreck (572) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2015
Weird one this... aromas of malt and tart... tart flavours, bit of funk, ripe berries, touch of coffee. Really quite thin in the mouth. It’s good, and interesting, but not sure if I’d be rushing out to buy more.
