SperkeleForce (791) - - JUN 22, 2013
Bottle 50 CL. Pours black copper with small lacing head. This one kind of weird tasting. The smoked and sweet taste doesn’t mix that good in this one. Notes of rye bread, smoked, wood. Smooth finish. Interesting and weird brew.

Saeglopur (1820) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 18, 2016
From bottle at CBF Wien.
Dark brown body, with a small, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of peat, cocoa, dark chocolate, some dark fruits, some coffee.
Tastes of dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, dried fruits, peat, some citrus, booze.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes roasty, citric, medium alcoholic, a bit wooden, with cocoa, subtle coffee.

Very nice. The nose is a bit too peaty for me, which I don’t like much, but the taste is really lovely, big, smooth and diverse. Quite heavy stuff, but a really enjoyable sipper.

PhillyCraft (6272) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2016
BB log, Bottle in 2011-12 from Canals west Deptford, shared with Joe. Pours a pitch black color with one finger sized head. Smell and flavor of peat, smoked malt, nuts, dark fruit, and other candy sugar type sweetness but its also pretty smokey. Not my favorite style but alright

langeveld12 (463) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2016
Almost black very thick barley wine. Clear smoke and licorice on the nose, yet quite subtle. Dark roasted malts giving coffee, chocolate and roasted bitterness. Yet also sweetness and dried fruits. Smoke not too present. Alcohol well hidden. Wow!
