Oh my this is lovely stuff. Had this on tap at Canterbury Beer festival yesterday and it is a stunner. Its dark with a small head and carbonation, not much lacing around, but the taste! This was without a doubt my fav beer of the evening. Def worth the hangover the next day. chocolate, roasty, it wasnt bitter or sour, it was just awesome can you tell ;) ericdevin (988) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Bottle at Julian’s, Providence. Bottled 05/04/12. Pours very dark, really still with no head to speak of. Aroma somewhat bizarre, albeit alluring, raspberry, chocolate, orange rind. Body dense and rich, finish very boozy, with some milk chocolate notes, dried fruit. Effing superb. miquelcrush (2053) - Granollers, SPAIN - JUL 14, 2014

Bottled 25.03.13. Dark brown. Small beige head. Strong aroma of sweet chocolate, gras, pine and hop bitterness. Strong taste, with pine and juniper. Pine, juniper, chocolate and bitterness in long aftertaste. Well balamced for the high ABV.

Tap @ Fermentoren, Aarhus. Pours a deep black with some brownred hues. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, burned malt, yeast, slight nutty and earthy. Taste is quite nutty, yeasty and quite sweet. It almost has some triple/quad-like hints to the sweetness. Not very roasted and finishes very sweet. Could use some more body and roastedness.

June 2014 - As 'De Molen Tsarina Esra'. Bottled Apr 2012. Opens with a ffft. Dark brown, forms a massive tan head, some short-lived lacing. Aroma is chocolate, sour caramel, yeasty, lightly metallic. Quite a strong smell, but not that inviting. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is soft malts, a little ash, redcurrent, coffee. Aftertaste is burnt coffee and salted butter. From the smell I thought something was amiss, but it tasted good. (3.8)
November 2017 - Bottle share at One Canada Square. Big thanks to Kenny. 11%, a good few years old. Opaque black with a foamy brown head that leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is earthy, cocoa, some redcurrant, fruited chocolate. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is honey-ish sweetness, earthy chocolate and booze. Not infected! (8-4-7-4-16=3.9)
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2016 0,33L fles, do keer bruin met een bruinE kraag. Geur is typisch geroosterde mout koffie en cacao maar ook zoet stroop schriftuur. Smaak begint vol zoet met wederom de stoop. In de afdronk komt ook het hopbitter en alcholwarmte. Niet helemaal in balans en wat te zoet.
