W aromacie sporo malin, mlecznej czekolady, kakao, melasy i troszkę wanilii. Smak podąża za aromatem, dochodzi trochę lukrecji, wszystko fajnie zbalansowane, owoce nie wybijają się jakoś przed szereg, dodają cierpkości, piwo nie zakleja, palony finisz, dębina, alkohol niewyczuwalny. Piwo dostojne, przemyślane, aczkolwiek nie ma efektu wow. Kawał świetnej roboty, ale może jednak przehajpowanej. PMgep (298) - Lund, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2018
Old rating from Borefts 2016. Dark brown color, Raspberry in the aroma. Sweet flavor. bytemesis (9729) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 28, 2018
Bottle, thanks to Ben!!! Pours clear black, small brown head, dissipates fairly quickly, good lacing. Aroma is licorice, molasses, cocoa, port. Flavor is medium sweet, light plus bitter. Medium body. Not really sure why this is a top 50 beer honestly.

15K rating. Bottle at Muckfest. Pours black with medium tan head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong roast, bourbon, vanilla, molasses, dark fruit. Thick body, roast, fudge, light smoke, boozy but balanced, really enjoyed this. phaleslu (11074) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2017
Little bottle shared by djd07 - thanks again, DJ! Pours an opaque near black color with a tan head that settles into a ring. Massive layers of chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits, fudge, molasses, and a bit of soy. Medium-full bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity, sweet, balanced mouthfeel. Decadent stuff. So rich. Drinks bigger than 9% ABV. Clownoisseur (490) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2017 Bottle at Akkurat. Hell yes! Finally! Pours pitch black, nice finger of khaki/brown head. Fades to nice lacing. Looks inviting....and I have been thinking of this beer for over a year! Personal hype aside, aroma is a bit muted. Hint of oxidation...but it fades as the beer opens. Malted milk balls, BIG anise/black licorice note, light vanilla, light oak, light bourbon/alcohol. Taste follows the nose. Light bourbon, medium chocolate, hint of smoke, medium berry tartness...raspberry, cranberry, cherry....light oak and light bourbon. Big anise/black licorice, as the nose suggests. Balances as it warms. Chocolate covered raspberry emerges. Light herbal/earthy hop note. Finished medium bitter, medium dry, light tart, light smoke, hint of leather, light tobacco, medium oak, light bourbon. All in all, a very nicely balanced beer, but can’t quite say top 50. Very pleased to have tried this....maybe better fresh? Would love to try the base beer/BA version someday to compare notes. JaBier (8518) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2017
Bottle sample at Muckfest. Thanks DJ! pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, dark fruits and booze. Malt and chocolate flavor with dark fruit accents before a bourbon finish. Great way to cap off Muckfest day 1. JStax (7455) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 18, 2017
Bottle shared at muckfest. The beer is a thick brown with a khaki head of foam. Big roasty caramel and toasty notes. Decent coconut. Hefty dark chocolate notes. Sweet roasty tones. Big body and medium carbonation.
