Bottle shared at Bruces pad, big thanks to Kenneth, 16/01/14. Light black with a good sized tan head. Nose is coconut shavings a la dark chocolate Bounty Bar, dark toffee fudge, light booze. Taste is mega bounty bar - red wrapper with black cardboard tray, dark chocolate, light spice, boozey leanings. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, sweet closure with light booze. Best of the series for me, nice flavours, well tempered booze - easy drinker for the style.

Zlotta (3104) - Hagen / Bonn, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016
Sampled from 0.375 l bottle. Slightly hazy, dark brown to black with a light brown head. Sweetish-malty, quite spicy aroma of milk chocolate, lots of coconut, hazelnut and some nougat. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty and quite spicy taste of milk chocolate, coconut, nougat, vanilla, cinnamon and hazelnut, followed by a long, slightly roasty-bitter, quite warming-alcoholic and a bit spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very good!

77ships (9398) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2015
Thank you! Sampled 375 ml. bottle @ Kerstbierfestival Essen 2015. Very dark brown to black, mocha bubbles. Nose is warming, lots of spirit, big booze with light vanish, mocha, chocolate syrup, powerful, Taste is gorgeous, coconut, raisin, dates, sugar, candy, marzipan, huge vanilla from the oak, sugar, sweet dough, Beautiful oxidation, this is everything an aged Belgian wants to become when it grows up. Body is touch thinned & oxidized. A truly rare & beautiful example of everything gone right in an aged beer of this kind. Lovely.

Bottle, bought at Bierkompass in 2014. Dark brownish/red with a small head. Quite a lot of cocoa both in the aroma and taste. Also some chocolate and oak. Almost full body and with a low carbonation. A smooth and pleasant one.
