A dark ruby beer with a rich flavour and spicy finish. The hop grist adds a hint of citrus to complement the roasted malt character. Dark, Delicious and Delectable.

Dark in both texture and taste, with a rich, fruity aftertaste and a slightly spicy twang ---Rated via Gareth Vogan of A Flyers First Ferret

mt_hall (174) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2013
Bottled. A very dark red-brown with a small, light-brown head. Muted malt and yeast aromas. Smooth coffee flavours underneath, but slightly let down by an acidic overtone.

mgajdaczewa (1132) - Katowice, POLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Mnóstwo dymu w tym piwie. Ten dymny (nie wędzony!) aromat może wielu przeszkadzać i kojarzyć się z wodą z brudnej popielniczki, ale, o dziwo, to mi smakuje. Dla miłośników ciekawostek.

larsga (6924) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Medium beige head. Barely translucent deep dark brown body. Earthy roasty prunes taste with soy sauce notes. Dry-sweet earthy spicy roasty taste with metallic nutty notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dryish mealy roasty chocolatey aftertaste with resiny caramelly fruity prunes notes. Perfectly decent, but a bit low on flavour. (0.5l bottle, from co-op, Whitby.)

The beer that should not be named. Bready aroma with light chocolate hints. It pours like a liquid and fills the glass nicely assuming the glass is free of holes. Taste is a little hollow like Voldemort's soul but reasserts itself like Harry, Ron and Hermione did with coffee hints. Pretty good. Would recommend a try but go for a bottle instead of a case for your first go. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mørkt nesten sort øl med et fint tynt lag av brunt skum på toppen. God fyldig smak som sitter lenge. et øl en kan bli glad i.

Rob_D_UK (1295) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2013
Dark brown with modest tan head subsiding quickly to a thin layer. Pleasant roasted malt aroma. Good flavour - dark chocolate, medium roast coffee. A touch of sweetness would improve the balance. Somewhat thin on the tongue. Lingering dry bitter hoppy finish.
