Boiled for 20 hours to create an umami flavour. Umami is the fifth basic taste next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. By doing so we have now a beer thats very thick and oily with loads of roasted malts.

De molen ziel and zaligheid. 20cl bottle acquired via trade. One bottle out of 96... Pours deeper and thicker than the wild turkey h&v with a more intense blackness and barely less intense reddish brown edge. An aggressive swirl yields a thin flimsy swirl of a deeper tan head, barely considered head as a matter of fact... Aroma of ink and and an unexpected smokiness, a little sulphur and intense bittersweet dark chocolate... Flavors are intense and assertive with ink and a peated smokiness upfront. Thick and charry with deep bittersweet dark chocolate and a roasted feel to it. Full bodied. Almost islay whiskeylike in nature. Finish gets a little inky. 7/4/8/4/15

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2011
bottle brewed 11 april 09 at daks on 8/14/10. orange-yellowy tinted brownish black with no head. wow! the aroma!... meaty/jerky, yeast, ash, roast, chocolate, wood, rubber, smoke, black olives and tangy barbecue sauce. the flavor is a lot alike.... ashy charcoal, umami and vanilla mix in there as well as a tartness on the finish. the aftertaste lingers as chocolate covered briquettes. it is a touch on the sweet side but the ash and alcohol really help keep the slickness in the medium body in check. 9/4/9/4/18+

deyholla (10902) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle shared by Kan, thanks! Poured black with a grayish brown head that started at the edges and dissipated completely. Aroma had note of dark grain and chocolate with a good amount of peat and smoke backing. Flavor had even more peat and smoke with a bit of dark chocolate and roast coming through and a hint of backing toffee.
