This is the beer to end all beers. This is the standard all others must meet. The pour is dark thick and fragrant. Notes of coffee and chocolate waft from the glass. The taste is dark deep and complex. Vanilla comes through the darkness. The beer is very cloying on the palate. If there was one beer left to drink in the world till the end of time this is the one. I tried to be critical of this beer but it’s everything a beer could be.
Jedno z piwnych marzeń spełnione. Czekolada, wanilia, lekki sos sojowy, team słodyczka. Gęste i oleiste. POEZJA!!! SG111 (1974) - New York, USA - SEP 22, 2017
Thanks, Jane! Bomber. 2017 release. Green wax. Pours black, no head. Aroma is soy sauce first and foremost. Then dark roasty malt (very roasty), cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate. Sweetness behind the intensely roasty nose and soy sauce predominance. Flavor is chocolate, cinnamon, roasted malt, sugar, some soy sauce. Wow, that's incredibly sweet as it warms. And very roasty. Some bitterness in that finish. Not bad. I see why some love it and I see why some people say it's a diabetes soy sauce bomb. I enjoy it.

2011 bottle. Aroma explodes out of the pour of chocolate, coffee, soy sauce. Time has softened the harder edges of flavor with huge but smooth sweet flavor of roasted coffee, mocha, and vanilla. Mouthfeel is full bodied and the finish is amazingly long. Lived up to the hype. Tide (4220) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2017

Bottle. Pours pitch black. Nose is molasses, iron, coffee, vanilla, chocolate. Palate is metalic chocolate, soy sauce, coffee. Not as good as I would have though. jonas (7986) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2017
Bottle 2017 edition. Darkest...its black, dark brown lace ring. Toasted bread, tomatoes, molasis, wood smoke, some doppelbock notes.
Sugary soy sauce entry, hop oils dissolved in the booze, good profile overall. Still drinkable and not too cloying, but still a bit unbalanced to the sweet side.
Banoffee cake. Roast, iodine, copper, chocolate aftertaste. anstei (2510) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 31, 2017
Bottle, at SinH4-5K-MoritzF-10K tasting. Pours black with a soft brown head. Aroma is chocolate, soy sauce, coffee, vanilla. Body is heavy, sweet, strong and really a chocolate syrup. Also soy sauce. Super intense. Lingering hot chocolate palate. Very good! jfb (6574) - GERMANY - AUG 31, 2017
(bottle) pitch black in colour with a frothy dark beige head. aroma of earth and pumpernickel, with a light touch of sugar icing, some toasted malts, treacle, earth and coffee liqueur. flavour is mostly earth, bubble gum and watermelon, heavily sugary, with lots of stone fruit, some caramel and a light-bitter treebark finish. heavy-bodied with average carbonation. it's ok.
