4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a perfect pitch black, with a big brown creamy head. Aroma is liquorice and tobacco, with coffee, oak, vanilla and some nice burned notes. Alcohol is remarkably well disguised. Very nice full creamy body, with an almost flat but still noticeable carbonation. Good and complex flavour with sweet roasted malts and vanilla, as well as oak barrels, liquorice, caramel and kandi. Long sweet finish with a nice tobacco touch.
Bottle. Opaque dark brown black beer with a small beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, coffee, chocolate, port wine and cherries. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, herbs, chocolate, port wine, cardboard and cherries. A bit overripe but still fantastic. Svartvit (1005) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2017
Bottle shared at the Oirschot tasting. Pours black with a tan head. This one is surely showing some age. Drinking almost like port. Big sweet malts, liquorice, raisins, dates, dark chocolate, vanilla, old coffee, cognac, caramel. It’s probably past it’s peak but I’m loving the way this turned out. alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - SEP 9, 2016

Bottle shared by Todd. Thanks!
A: Mahogany brown, yeasty looking body with a mocha head.
N: Soy sauce, cocoa, espresso, grass, smoke, and charred wood.
T: Smokiness and grassiness. Some sweetness - I expected this one to be a bit of a malt bomb, but it wasn’t.
M: Medium-heavy body, no alcohol. Some stickiness.
O: A fine beer, but I preferred the Bourbon-vanilla Dark Lord and Narke. Not really a fair comparison; I would probably want to try this one again. Benzai (16923) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2014

Really small bottle (my girlfriend actually laughed when she saw it and asked me if it was hot sauce) sent to me a while back from Botlz555, thanks man! Thick black pour with a tiny layer of chocolate mocha head. Aroma is dark fruit, oak, very boozy, and port like. Taste is sweet brown sugar up front, syrupy mouthfeel, soft carbonation, dark fruits, oak, ash, sticky sweet aftertaste, exceptionally smooth finish with absolutely no hint of the booze. Wow, this is so well rounded and smooth, absolutely love it. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2014
