Bottle shared with Esp0r and simonsen at the Beer & Boardgames in the woods trip 2016. Black body with a beige head. Aroma of intense chocolate, sweet cherry syrup, bourbon and vanilla. Taste follows the same notes, adding a balancing cherry tartness, roasted malt and earthy notes. Sweet vanilla and cherry finish, with a lasting strong cocoa note. Excellent.

Flaske. Svart f arge, moderat med tynn skumtopp. Smaker rosin,brent malt,sjokolade, og kaffe. Muy bien Koelschtrinker (20782) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2016
Intensiv malziger Antrunk, Schokolade und Vanille. Milde Noten von Kirschen, minimale Säure. Das Ganze ist ziemlich süffig, dabei übernimmt die Säure das Zepter, das Malz kommt dadurch schwächer hervor. Dadurch wirkt das Bier insgesamt milder und nicht mehr so vollmundig wie zu Beginn. 10/12/9/8/11/9 Japalo (1887) - DENMARK - DEC 24, 2014

x-mas evening. Late. No head low carbonation. Spicyness blended with roasted coffee notes. A hybrid. Some sour dry mouthfeel. More speciel than gentle. Okay...... its crazy.
"Soft Dookie :) was a great beer - really lookin forward to this. However, the cherry aspect was too sour and acidic to mesh well with the vanilla and chocolate awesomeness. By the end I still enjoyed it, but toned down sour (or just a hint of sweet cherry instead) would have been sooooo much better."

Nice light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet, caramel malts, sugar, vanilla/yoghurt candy, grass, sweet red berries, dark sugar. Taste is slightly sour-ish fruity, dark malts, hay, sorrel, sour red berries, harsh vanilla, yoghurt, grass, dark sugar. Medium bitterness, slightly harsh sour-ish mouthfeel. Nice enough.
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a pitch black body with a medium creamy beige head. Nose is shoe polish-like leather tones, vanilla, dark chocolate, hints of cocoa and red fruits. Taste is clove, vanilla, cinnamon, dark chocolate, citric peel, bitter herbs and hints of caramel and cherry yoghurt. Full body, soft to medium carbonation. Not really working for, this one - the sour-ish fruity touch doesn’t rhyme too well with the rest of the beer.
