Fin (9797) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle picked up from De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands, shared with dad, consumed at home Friday 7th November 2014 Pitch black beer, mmhh... scrub that actually in the light I can see that I am being deceived in fact its more deep dark brown and certainly a bit thinner than some weve had tonight. Devoid of a head, looking a little washed out and flat, it has a slightly thick oily mouthfeel. Some smokiness in mouth, its a little dark fruity number but one that sadly disappoints, quite good but not great. A6 A3 T7 P3 Ov14 3.3

Marduk (6599) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 28, 2014
330ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Pitch black color. Tiny to almost no head. Raisins, malty, touch of wood, very faint notes of alcohol, melass in aroma. Roast, treacle, dark fruits, very faint hint of whisky in taste. So full body. Delicate balance. Absolutely fantastic. Orgasmatron!

FatPhil (14519) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 24, 2014
330ml bottle (ALEhouse, Riga) (8:4:8:4:16-=4.0-)
Lovely soft bourbony aroma, gently sweet, hint of butter, dense fruitcake, absolutely delicious. Glassy black, doesnt keep a head, but wouldnt expect it to. Full smooth palate, soft and sweet, but not sticky. Warming, but not hot. Roast is deep, but not astringent at all. Sweet, but not sugary, cakey, fruity, a little bit of brandy cream too. Tingle on the tongue from gentle carbonation, and lovely burntness and bitterness. Finish is a little bit dusty from the burnt roast, has the bourbon butteriness. Probably the best beer Ive ever had that hasnt made me say "wow". Its very solid in all regards, impossibly to find fault with it. 11% used very well, has the kind of warmth that I really want right now, but no burn at all. Not sure I get any smokiness anywhere, per se. Wanted to make this last as long as possible.
