A very dark beer with a beige head. This both smells and tastes sweet and a little sticky (maybe to cover the alcohol), perhaps more so than I’d like. That said, it grows on me and ends up working pretty well once the finish arrives. There is a pleasant dark toffee in there, and what lingers is a fairly dry roast with some smokiness. I may get some signs of wheat in there also, but they don’t dominate. Not majestic but solid. Unusally, Phil didn’t have this, as far as he is aware.
Opaque black beer, thin brown head. Smells of malt, toffee, chocolate. Flavour is chocolate, toffee, earthy malt, some dried fruit and then you really get the woodiness from the barrel-aging. That ends up leaving an aftertaste that’s smoky and almost tangy. Rich and hearty on top of all that. Even taking the strength aside it’s not a guzzler, but it’s a damn fine beer. melush (4220) - SPAIN - AUG 10, 2017

On tap. Pours black with moderate tan head. Aromas of smokey roasted malts and sugary coffee. Flavors of maple syrup, smoked bacon and sweet dry chocolate, on a solid toasted malt base. Quite sweet but the subtle smokiness works well. Rask0lnikov (1311) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 9, 2017
