Looks like a stout, by which I mean pretty darn dark and has short ligth brown head. Smell gives plenty of malts and sensation of sweetness. First taste is rich, there’s smoke, rough roast malts, basement, leaves, and licorice. Quite a bomb of aroma. It is nice that this beer is not overly sweet, so if you are into that sort of stout this may taste slightly sour. The beer is fairly easy to drink, but I have doubts one could not have three pints of this stuff. There’s just too much going on, one would go crazy after second. This is a very good example of a what high end beer meant for tasting is like.
Bottle. Black color with small tan head. Aroma: Dark fruits, plummes, coffee, wet wood, chocolate. Taste of chocolate, dark fruits, coffee, hazelnut, licorice and woody taste with some spice. Oily texture. Alcohol well hidden. Nice beer. rondphoto (4508) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 8, 2016
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of malt and earth. Opaque black color, persistent brown head, lots of lace filaments. Taste is malt and bread that has chocolate and peat blended into a velvet palate that has just a bit of nutty grit to keep it interesting. This is one of those timeless brews that seems current today, but fits what I imagine heavy brews tasted like several centuries ago. Alcohol is well-hidden. Full-bodied, rich, creamy, balanced, complex. Outstanding brew. Bosskie (956) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 5, 2016
Pitch black beer with a small creamy head and nice carbonation.
Smell is liquorice, iodine, peat and tar. Hint of dark fruit in the background.
Taste is peat, iodine and ash. Watery oily mouth feel. Finish bitter astringent. Interesting concept but the barrel overwhelms and leaves nothing of the beer. LomYst (926) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2016
it’s an ok mix... a bit too sweet but with dense hops and heavy darkness sjogro (5008) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2015

Typical black & tan aroma, neither roasty or hoppy. Great appearance - pitch black with a tiny tan head. Tastes just hoppy enough, just roasty enough. Perfect combination. Aftertaste has booze burn, hops and char. Very nice. Palate is decent. Overall a very well done Black and Tan
