durhambeer's rating

4.4
durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2012
On tap at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville. Rich, nearly black pour with a tan head. Nose of toasted nuts, complex coffee, chocolate, toffee, huge fruits--plums, prunes, raisins. So much going on here. A big, big beer, but not boozy or overwhelming. Palate was lighter than expected for the ABV as well. So tasty.


4.3
colui72 (982) - HONG KONG - JUN 17, 2017
Pours black and dense, with a small brown head, which faded quickly, slimy lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark fruit and vanilla. Tastes boozy, medium sweet, low bitterness, notes of vanilla, roasted malts, ripe dark fruits and molasses. Full body, slick feel, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall a very stout-ish porter, thick, tasty: a silent (not too silent) killer.

Bottled (backlog). Black colour, small beigeish brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, some raisins, plum, ripe fruits, mild ashes as well as some slight coffee and nutty notes. Flavour is syrupy, some roasted malts, nuts, mild toffee, coffee and some alcohol as well as some dried dark fruits to it. Overall rather sweet, but still quite a pleasant one.

beer_rookie (554) - Arkansas, USA - APR 23, 2017
Pours a very dark brown or black color. Maybe half finger brown head. Poor retention, very light lacing. Not much to see here.

Aroma is coffee, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar. Lots of dark fruits, especially prunes. Dark roasted malts. Lots of malt. Whiff of alcohol.

Taste is burnt brown sugar. Dark fruits, especially prunes. Chocolate, caramel. Not too much coffee. It actually reminds me of a barleywine. Quite sweet.

Mouthfeel is full bodied, no doubt about it. Sweet, sticky, thick, heavy. Also a little alcohol bitterness.

Overall, I initially rated this quite low, but it has grown on me. It took a while, but I like it quite a bit. No, I wouldn’t recommend this to most people, but I would buy it again.

4.2
19Michi38 (187) - Cracow, POLAND - APR 20, 2017
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana kremowa, drobna, średnio-obfita, lacingu brak. W zapachu praliny, trochę pumpernikiel, mleczna czekolada, kakao, ogólnie bardzo słodko. Zresztą podobnie w smaku. Również dominuje słodycz - mleczna czekolada, trochę kakao, to wszystko lekko kontrują kwaśne, ciemne owoce, ale na krótko. Po chwili znowu wraca słodyczka. Goryczka niska, posmak kakaowo-czekoladowy, nasycenie średnie.

4.4
lello4ever (964) - ITALY - APR 11, 2017
UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 Aspetto esemplare, nera con ampia Schiuma marrone a grana molto fine e compatta. Al naso tostatura drake fruits e una nota alcolica. Al palato piuttosto dolce, con malto caramello tostatura. Corpo medio, molto cremosa, alcol ben evidente. Peccato solo una dolcezza un pelo eccessiva.

rostetti (365) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2017
