Wow, this beer looks truly one of a kind. 11.2 oz bottle with red wax on the cap. This looks like motor oil pouring into a class. Dark and sludgy, viscous. No head, just a light ring of fizz around the edge of the glass. Nose stinks of hops. Thats not a bad thing either. I dont claim to know what cognac smells like but I dont smell it to much. I do get coffee and chocolate however. It smells great! Taste is a lot bitter and a little sweet. Its boozy, has a tinge from high alcohol. This could do with a year or two of aging. Mouthfeel is soft and silky. Nice long aftertaste. This is tempting as hell but can wait for a while.

Black as the night. Brown head. Aroma is surprisingly neutral and complex at all but somehow pleasing. It has coffee in it. Flavour is roasted malts, licorice and some notes of alcohol.

Kristall-Knig (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2012
Tief dunkelmalziger, holzig-ser Geruch mit Likrnoten. Volumins, malzser Antrunk. Viel Kaffee, Rstaromen und alkoholisch. Trotzdem sanft-lig gleitend mit Vanille. Sehr bittertrocken, likrig, holzfaartig ablaufend. Alkoholisch nachwrmend. Enormes Bier.

jbeatty (1245) - New York, USA - JAN 10, 2012
75 cl bottle #371. Pours black, small tan head receding to hazy swirl on the surface. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted coffee, soft peat, rounding into vanilla toffee, raisin, sweet hint of cognac. In the taste, chocolate and dark espresso, integrating into cognac fruitiness, toffee, oak, and this crazy long finish with both cognac sweetness and roast bitterness balanced perfectly. Mouthwatering. Medium full in the mouth, creamy, round and smooth, well balanced. Overall an excellent brew for sure, one of my favorite H&V treatments. Reminds me slightly of Nielsbohrium, but with more roast character.

Benzai (15015) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle @ home, bought at De Molen. Unclear pitch black color. The big thick light brown head consists out of very small bubbles leaving a very nice lacing in the glass. Aroma is very roasty, coffee, caramel, lightly hints of smoke and wood. Taste roasted malts, coffee, earth, dark chocolate, a hint of vanilla sneaking through. Soft carbonation, creamy / oily texture, full body.
