8 degrees C. Pours almost black, which turns dark red when you put it to a light., with a substantial beige head. Aroma of vanilla and caramel. Very stringent taste with roasted malt, liquirice and a distinct bitterness in the long aftertaste - bordering on grapefruit. High alcohol content asserts itself a little too much. This was a young example BBF June 2017 and I am sure that several years cellaring will improve this beer. Will try it. Oh, and almost an extra decimal for that golden half moon face on a black background on the cap... perhaps the best cap I have ever seen.
Bottle. Opaque black color that turns into dark red with a light. Light brown head. Aroma has plums, caramel, ripe fruits, licorice and coffee. Taste is first a bit sweet with some sour aspects but turns into quite dry and somewhat bitter long aftertaste. Flavors of caramel, licorice, coffee, port, plums, ripe fruits. Quite intense and interesting one. benpickens (512) - Camarillo, California, USA - APR 4, 2015
Pours inky black with no head other than soapy bubbles; tobacco and dark chocolate on the nose; chalky and bitter on the tongue... tastes like the westie 12 I had where I accidentally poured the sediment into the glass, but this time, I don’t think I poured the sediment into the glass. too bitter and chalky by half DocJitsu (1976) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2015
Pours a dull dark brown-amber with an impressive light tan head. Dark red fruit and caramel malt on the nose. Full and moderately astringent on the palate. Sweet malt blanced with a mildly tart dark red fruit. Ysok02 (1559) - Mons, BELGIUM - MAR 31, 2015
Robe brune, mousse peu persistante. Nez sur le chocolat amer, la fourrure, les épices, touche de banane. Bouche à l’attaque ample, une matière moyenne, des amers marqués et une finale un peu abrupte. Bière bien faite mais loin de mes préférées.
