500 ml bottle from LCBO Hawkesbury (Ontario) on November 28, 2014 (9% version). Black, small beige head. Fruity coffee aroma, not to strong. Spicy moka coffee taste, but somewhat dry, nice bitter coffee aftertaste. Not a tempest in your mouth, but at less not an over the top monster now a days!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - 500ml (2014). Pours an opaque black body with an average, fading, beige foamy head. Rich malty aroma with vineous and chocolate hints. Alcohol is not agressive. Its robust malty/hoppy aroma carries roasty, licorice, woody, and plummy notes. Ends with a long, strong, warming, bitter/roasty finish. Very well done.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Opaque black with beautiful thick yellow-brown foam. Very deep and strong coffee, cocoa + herbal aroma. Taste is also very deep, hints of dark chocolate, carmel, licorice and champagne.The taste is even developing more when the temperature increases, so do not cool down it too much.
Very good beer!
