15-03-17 // bottle shared at home. Pours a deep black beer, no head, white lacing at the edges. Intense nose of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, alcohol. Taste is surprisingly "light" considering the very high ABV, very well hidden only in the end there are some alcoholic notes. Loads of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malts, sweet. Oily texture, warming finish. Great. Saesenthessis (40) - Kraków, POLAND - MAR 28, 2017
Pours black, opaque. Dark beige foam, quickly reudces to the ring. Aroma of cholcolate, roasted malts, espresso, smoke, peaty notes, vanilla, alcohol, whiskey. Taste is similar to the aroma, dark chocolate, coffe, sugary, bitterness and alcohol, a little oily-like texture. Finish heavy bitter, full body, very soft carbonation. castor010 (283) - Kraków, POLAND - MAR 28, 2017
Aromat - gorzka czekolada, wanilia, delikatna wędzonka ogniskowa, nuta śliwkowa.
Piana - obrączka, nie krążkuje; brązowa.
W smaku niemal to samo, co w aromacie, ale dodatkowo jest intensywny kawowy posmak.
Półsłodkie z długim czekoladowym finiszem. Ciało średnio pełne. PotjeBier (3632) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2017
25 cl bottle @ home. Bought in Copenhagen during our honeymoon, 3.5 years ago. Batch# 894/895, brewed 29.11.12 (4.5 years ago). Pitch black color. Brown head. Aroma’s: sweet, black strap molasses, red fruit, alcohol. Retronasal it’s sweet, drop/licorice, some soy sauce, red fruit, chocolate. Flavor is moderate to full sweet, dark malts, light roasty, molasses. Pretty strong alcohol feel. Medium to full bodied. Finishes sweet, ryebread, roasty.

Tastes quite similar, with more booze.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes Roastbeef, medium dry, with coffee, cocoa, liquorice, subtle dark fruits.
Very nice. Not too heavy for the ABV, quite smooth. Well balanced, with diverse, dark roasty notes. Not among my favourite style examples, but a lovely sipper.
