Idiosynkrasie (7429) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2014
330ml bottle [7.4% abv as per label]. Jet black colour with late awakening, small, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Dark malty aroma with hints of oak, leather, a touch of treacle, vanilla, very cautious hints of mustard and freshly compounded concrete. Taste is slightly dry, subtle dark malty sweetness, notes of treacle, vanilla, oak, leather; oily texture, unbelievably smooth, soft, silky and slightly sticky palate. Man! F***ing awesome! Rich like an Impy Stout, comparatively easy drinkable, and so charmingly soft without being flat - excellent! tiong (7197) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014

33 cl bottle.The_Osprey (7881) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2014
Pours gorgeous black color with a large, thick beige head. Aroma is just bursting with vanilla and roasted malts, faint tar notes, dark chocolate and some licorice also. The aroma is simply amazing. Almost creamy smooth palate from all the vanilla and chocolate on the flavor, some distant port notes on the background, toasty malts with caramel and subtle tar. Medium carbonation, smooth as silk with a very deceptively high drinkability. An excellent dessert stout.
Bottle BB Sep 2014. Black, no real head - just a few bubbles. Aroma - mostly milk chocolate. Touches of bourbon, sour milk and ash. Body is medium, low carbonation, pretty smooth. Taste - soft chocolatey malts, some bourbon and apple. So drinkable. For me, this isn’t as complex or as tasty as the Buffalo Trace version though it is still very good. Siren continue to impress.
