Damn was this good. Dark as heck with a super brown head. All the flavors melted together wonderfully. It doesn’t get better than this.

750ml bottle shared with Ben, Seb, Jo and Edith. Aroma: anice, apples, spices, oak, light milk chocolate. App: dark brown, minimal brown head but good retention and nice lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, nice apple touch in mouth, great spicy and bitter finish. Overall: much prefer this version over the regular version. Really enjoy the apples and those spices burning my throat. This is really complex. Awesome!

mariuspoenari (1944) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2016
Shared at the December THT at deanso’s.

2016 vintage: Pitch black pour with a thin tan head. Tons of cinnamon, vanilla, toasted coconut, cocoa, spices, brandy, light tequila spiciness and chillies. Full body, medium to low carbonation and a bitter-sweet finish. A very complex bouquet of flavours, but does feel a bit rough sometimes. 4.5

2012 vintage: the same taste notes as the 2016 vintage, much better balanced, no chilli burn, no extreme cinnamon, super-smooth texture, more chocolate, the rum barrel is working a bit better, I find. Just perfect!

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2016 2016 version at THT, thanks to RandomstrangerNL. Black with short lasting brown head. Massive cinnamon and spicy peppers, chocolate, bourbon, coconut, string spices, cognac, strong alcohol, sugary, coffee, sweet malts, calvados,lots of roasted notes. Very sweet, medium bitter. Full bodied with alcoholic and light spicy finish. 4.3

Original version, also at THT thanks to RandomstrangerNL. Much more chocolate, less peppers but still a bit of heat. Less alcohol, massive sweet chocolate, peppers and cinnamon. Amazing. Way better than the fresh bottle.

Zer0 (1211) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2016
Bottled, 2016 version. Thanks for sharing kermis. Pours massively dark without much of a head. Aroma is big chillies, cinnamon, dark chocolate, oak and some rum. Flavour is sweet, spices are pretty overpowering. Pretty spicy too. It feels a bit raw, but tastes so good. Does not really feel like a beer anymore, but I love it. Very viscous, definitely a slow sipper.

Aroma is of bittersweet fudge and booze. Flavor has nice amount of booze paired with chocolate and mild roast. Finishes with lots of alcohol and chocolate. Nice and smooth on the palate.

gephross100 (588) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2016
Pours black like oil with no head. Cinnamon, cocoa, rum barrels and apple. Viscous mouthfeel. Small heat from the alcohol on the finish. This is phenomenal but needs to sit for a couple years.
