argo0 (11818) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2008
(22oz bottle) Very dark brown topped by persistent and slightly rocky tan head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, coffee/roast, fudge/milk chocolate, confectionery sugar. Taste is roast/coffee, some nut/salty, cocoa/chocolate, earthy, light wood. Some earthiness, but most of the bitterness is from the coffee maltiness. Smooth medium body, no sign of alcohol.

bhensonb (11789) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of dark toasted malt, could be some coffee, chocolate and oak. It’s a strong aroma. Near opaque brown/black color with a decent tan head. Near full bodied with creamy carbonation. It has an oak bite to go with dark toasted malt, and a touch of coffee. Finishes dry, slightly astringent and a little woody and bitter. Leaves the mouth a bit stunned. It’s pretty good.

Koelschtrinker (11518) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 31, 2012
Herber, sehr weicher Malzbeginn mit kräftiger Röstigkeit. Auch im Mittelteil beeindrucken die wechen Malznoten, die einen feinen aber nicht zu übersehenden Hoppfenton beinhalten. Später wird das Bier fast etwas wässrig. Insgesamt ein rundes, sehr sehr weiches Bier. 12/11/12/11/8/12
