popery (2141) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 20, 2017
330 ml bottle. The beer is black and appears thick and dense. Small brown head, a bit fizzy. Big chocolate base with lots of dark malt sweetness. Molasses, toffee, caramel, vanilla, light coconut, coffee, clean roast. Mostly sweet milk chocolate with an undercurrent of coffee roast. The taste has that same huge sweet milk chocolate up front, even more intense than expected. However, as the beer develops, roast takes over more and more. Finish has a lot of roast. Light coffee throughout. Thick mouthfeel. This is a very big beer with a lot of flavor. Roast dominates a bit too much in the finish. The intensity of the chocolate and roast in the taste both sorta overpower some of the flavor that you can find in the aroma.

BlazerT (1000) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Pitch black with small to medium, thick, light brown/beige head. Poor head retention and average lacing. Nose is mainly roasted malts - milk chocolate, some cocoa nibs and lightly vanilla and raisins notes. Slightly peaty in the background. Unfortunately there is some booze noticeable. Taste is medium-sweet in the beginning and it becomes more bitter, harsh and semi-dry in the end. Full body, oily and thick texture, soft carbonation, finish is semi-dry, semi-bitter, cocoa and lightly ashy. In general very good RIS to start with some improvements and make it even better in the future. Very good balance between malty sweetness and roasted character, the high ABV content makes it very potent, but on the other hand the booze is hard to hide.
