Bottle acquired through a nice trade! Thanks Trev! Meady molassis nose with a reference to brettanomyces. Dark pine honey! Reminds me of the retired Stronzo (DK) brews. Oily texture offering a funky carbonated start and middle, with a lasting brown and dark chocolate aftertaste. Lots of booze in the after and on the stomach. Great mouthfeel and lingering sensatory characteristics. Long live funky stouts with deviating profiles. Hartung32 (252) - Indiana, USA - MAR 1, 2015
There's a few better but this is up there. Smooth, with great vanilla notes.

Bottle shared at the last tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Black with a nice brown head. Lovely aroma full of vanilla, bourbon and dark chocolate. Sweet flavor full of chocolate, vanilla, a bit of coffee and an alcoholic touch. Full-bodied, thick and silky. Really great stuff.

Bottle, from b3shine (thanks Beau!), shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Hearty dark brown with a finely bubbled sienna-brown head. Big chocolatey aroma and flavour, matched by a lovely bourbon sweetness. Heavy malts here, slightly brothy (soy), big and chewy. Very nice. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 18, 2015
