Davros IX (449) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2017
Bottle at home from Mother Kelly’s. Poured very nicely with a lovely opaque black colour and a long lasting dark tan head. It certainly smelt the part with roasted and toasted malts and quite a whiff of alcohol, which should have put me on warning. The flavour was the same, lovely malts, but completely dominated by the alcohol. The mouthfeel was oily and quite unctuous and a strong alcohol burn. I had been looking for this one for a while, but the alcohol was way too much for me and pretty much killed my enjoyment of the beer.

LazyPyro (1482) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2017
330ml bottle, 9.5%, bottled October 2016. Pours black with a thin bubbly tan head. Aroma: rich dark/dried fruits, dark chocolate, roast malt, coffee. Taste: like the aroma rich with dried fruits and roasted malts, liquorice, chocolate, warming alcohol, quite sweet, long warm finish. Full bodied, minimal carbonation. Decent stout but very rich, wouldn’t want more than one.

KraftowyJakup (436) - POLAND - JUL 12, 2017
W nosie brownie, od groma czekolady deserowej, uczucie jakbym wąchał miękkie ciacho z płynną czekoladą, dalej trochę paloności w postaci ziarna kakao, prażonego słonecznika i skórki ciemnego pieczywa. W smaku raczej półwytrawny, ale gęsty, oleisty, ciała nie brakuje, na finiszu odczucie wyklejania, jak przy czekoladzie 90+ % kakao. Mimo, że lwią część aromatu i smaku wypełnia czekolada i kakao pod różnymi postaciami, nie powiedziałbym, że jest jednowymiarowe czy nudne. Po ogrzaniu dochodzi wyraźna nuta piernika z rodzynkami czy śliwką.

LiwkoLiwko (541) - POLAND - JUL 4, 2017
Poprawny sotut. ładnie sie prezentuje. Czarna, oleista barwa. Puszysta, kremowa piana. Pachnie kawą. Delikatna mleczną czekoladą. Z czasem miałem wrażenie, że te nuty ewoluują w kierunku mleka i masła. Pijalne, bez wyraźnej goryczki.

No taki ris. Dużo palnoci, wytrawny, kawowy. Ładnie się prezentuje, niczego nie urywa.
