chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2010
UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 12oz bottle. Aroma with typical chocolate and coffee aroma up front, but side notes of graham cracker, alcohol and maraschino cherry. Pours black with a dark tan head. This beer DOES look scary. Head dissipates rapidly and leaves little lacing. The flavor is sweet with lots of milky chocolate, burn whole grain toast, caramel, and a very ashy bitter finish. Very slight hop profile. Just enough to keep my interest at a very high level. Hops are no match for the heavy malts though. Medium-full body with an almost chewy texture and slight chalkiness. It is smooth and creamy almost like a milk stout. A beautiful beer. Reminds me why I love beer. Well done.

Piwo w kolorze czarnym z bardzo obfita lekko bezowa srednio i drobnopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie intensywna kawa i palonosc, gorzka czekolada i ciemne owoce. Tego samego doswiadczamy w smaku, pyszna kawa z czekolada i nutka lukrecji. Wysycenie na srednim poziomie i mocno palona goryczka. Piwo jest tresciwe i gladkie, jestem naprawde pozytywnie zaskoczony.

McWorta (1627) - LUXEMBOURG - FEB 11, 2017
Dark brown-black with a light beige-tan head, good lacings. Aromas of roasted malts, dark chocolate, hints of cofee as well as a touch of vanilla and dark fruits develop. Fine carbonation with a medium body and a smooth texture. Lightly sweet with some roast bitterness - well harmonic medium lasting finish.
