Pours dark with a nice brown head. Aroma coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, and roasted malts. Flavor is chocolate, malts, coffee and a hint of vanilla. Medium to full bodied with light carbonation. Has a nice silky smooth finish.

Bottle from a trade long ago. Black with a red clay shine around the edges, low head. Dark chocolate aroma, light allspice and cinnamon, lurking pines. Roasted chocoree, strong chocolate, port wine. Vanilla, berries and cigars in the aftertaste. Mellow full body, the slightesh tingle on the tongue makes the flavours come to life. Roasted coffe and wood stays on the tongue. The bottle aged wonderfully - a great drink.

12oz bottle shared at pre-GTMW 2011 tasting, pours black with a brown head, aroma is sweet with a nice amount of coffee, the flavor has a decent amount of chocolate and coffee that comes through, a very nice surprise to be able to try this one, thanks Jeff!

8/12/11. Shared pre-GTMW. Fruity aroma with a touch of oxidation and dark fruits. Fruity flavor at first but a big lingering, roasty, coffee kick as well. The flavor hits bigger and better than the flavor. Nice!

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 2, 2011
Sehr malziger Antrunk, passend leicht süß, im Mittelteil noch würziger werdend. Etwas herb, der Alkohl ist nicht erkennbar. Etwas ölig, die Malzigkeit wirkt etwas klebrig. Der Geschmack ist nicht besonders vielfältig sondern nur auf eine möglichst hohe Malzigkeit ausgelegt. Im Abgang minimal süßer, angenehm malzig aber irgendwie nicht tiefgehend. Dennoch ein fülliges Bier. Danke an den Doppelbock für das Bier. -/11/11/11/10/11

Bottle. thick black pour. Wow what a beer. This guy is really complex, chocolate and toffee are complement each other very well with notes of vanilla, dark fruit, and maybe a little oak? This guy is sensational.

Thanks Dan! Deep brown and viscous with almost no head. Aroma of cocoa, caramel, molasses. Hints of dark fruit with dark chocolate and coffee. Smooth and syrupy with a mellow lingering alcohol warmth. I almost didn’t bother with this rating, because I know that I can’t do it justice.

bottle, no glass, chilled. Fantastic! Very chocolatey, some coffee tones. Very sweet-alcohol aftertaste. Tastes amazingly like dark chocolate. Little overpowering by the end of the bottle. Wouldn’t want to drink several in a row, but excellent one at a time. Wish I had bought a 6-pack and stored it for a while.

Huge thanks to Daknole! Bottle pours deep brown/black with a khaki head. Aroma shows notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, ash, and a touch of alcohol. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of coffee and licorice. Overall body is full and viscous and finishes with some warming alcohol.
