Chuckaduck (674) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - JAN 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Pours black with a graham cracker head. Aroma is vanilla, solvent, herbs, spice, and something nice that I can’t quite place. Taste is dark fruit, very hoppy and malty, incredibly complex with loads of coffee; coffee for days. Super strong and incredibly delicious and drinkable. An absolutely excellent stout.

Another bottle from trade. The funk makes us suspicious whether this is intentional or the beer is just spoiled. Extra winey, sherry, little funk. Very bitter aftertaste. It is boozy, indeed, but for this abv it can be forgiven. Complex, sophisticated, dark chocolate 99.99999, dry barolo, port wine, what a complexity, what a body. A lot of cherries, sour notes, earthy. Great beer, but I remind we don't know whether it's spoiled or not. Curious :o

Cybuch (619) - Muszyna, POLAND - JAN 10, 2018
Wersja 16,7%. Pachnie jak lambic, strasznie dziko, nie wiem czy to te drozdze szampanskie czy jakies zakazenie. Prawie nie czuc tu risa. W kazdym razie jest swietny, owocowy, winny, stajnia. Jest tez czekolada i slodycz. Barwa czarna, piana obfita, ladna, piwa o polowie miejszym alkoholu maja gorsza. W smaku polslodkie, dzikie, lekko kwasne. Gorzka czekolada. Alkohol czuc, przeszkadza, ale nie powiedzialbym ze prawie 17 procent. Nie jest geste. Mocno sciagajace na jezyku, winne. Mocno owocowe, rumowe. Piwo bardzo zlozone i nietypowe, swietne.

KW92 (1711) - Warszawa (Warsaw), POLAND - JAN 6, 2018

Butelka z datą : 22/10/25 [wersja 15,7%] (import na Stany Zjednoczone, "Shelton Brothers")
AROMAT : Intensywny. Na pierwszym planie charakterystyczne drożdże szampańskie (zatęchła piwnica, przejrzałe jabłaka. W tle prażoność, gorzka czekolada, a także wyraźny sos sojowy.
SMAK : Półsłodkie (przełamane alkoholem i gorzką czedkoladą). Analogicznie do aromatu. Odczucie w ustach pełne/oleiste. Posmak to już tylko li wyłącznie bardzo gorzka czekolada (à la Lindt 99%). Alkohol...niestety słabo ułożony, co objawia się poprzez specyficzną i nieprzyjemną goryczką.
WYGLĄD : Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobniusieńka (jak na azocie), obfita, pięknie zdobi szkło (lacing).
OGÓLNIE : Piwo z serii " You Must Try Before You Die". Legendarne. Nie ma co się nad nim rozpisywać, trzeba je spróbować i rzetelnie ocenić. Cieszę się, że nie degustowałem tego piwa mając bardzo małe doświadczenie (poniżej 1000 piw), a okazji było wiele. Jestem pewny, że nie umiałbym docenić tego piwa. Casus whisky do której zwyczajnie trzeba dorosnąć, żeby ją docenić i nie mówię tu o Johnnie Walker Red Label...

Bote de Cervecería Lúpulo Feroz. Color negro, poca espuma marrón, sabor predomimante a alcohol que deja notar las maltas tostadas, caramelo, café, cacao, pero sobre todo se nota muy alcohólica

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 2010 bottle. Ummm... not too bad. Seems oxidation helps a lot. Really bitter. Dry paper. Nothing luxurious about it just big and bitter.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 3.8 I just spent 20 min writing this review and pushing back in this app erased it all. Every time I took a sip of this beer I felt like I passed out and had to come to. Needless to say, I am not writing another review of this beer...

mhuntsman (20) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 31, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2017 Bottle gifted by Matt (Steve). 2010 bottle. Aroma 6/10: Booze, booze, and more booze. Appearance 4/5: Used motor oil. Palate 3/5: Thick and sticky with non existent carbonation. Taste 6/10: I don't even know. This is basically liquor. Extremely sweet and sticky. Some fruit undertones, I think. I mostly just taste alcohol. Overall 12/20: Boozey beer is boozey. 3.1

RW80 (2900) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2017
375ml bottle ( 17.5 % ABV version) shared. Appearance: Pitch black body, with a small brown head. Aroma: coffee, liquorice, caramel, chocolate, dark fruits(berries, raisins) and some alcohol. Taste: Is very powerfull in your face. It does have complexit. liquorice, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and sugar, roasted malts, and a quite some alcohol with a bit of burned rubber. Bittersweet and boozy. Oily texture, full body, medium carbo. Big beer, alto I did get the feeling that a bit less could be better.

vinivini (3134) - Gomel, BELARUS - DEC 28, 2017
Can at 16.5% ABV. Very dark brown. Moderate brownish head. Aroma: big berry esters, dark malts, roasted barley, coffee & chocolate. Full-bodied. Taste: roast, coffee, higher spirits. Dryish, sourish. A powerful hop kick on ending. A strange impy. Over the top. But good.

On tap at Brewdog Shoreditch. Lovely oily black body. Scent is cocoa properties. Taste is surprisingly loads of cocoa on a milk stout. Finish is warming and smooth. Probably a bit too drunk. Gorgeous.
