Aroma: Medium-high, rich, malty, toasty, roasty,medium meaty, prunes, bready, cacao, light alcohol, Appearance: Opaque black. Small brown head, low retention. Legs. Flavour: Medium alcohol spiciness, light fruity. High malt, toasty, roasty, light licorice, peanuts, dark choclate. Dry finish, lingering roasty and warmth. Medium-high sweetness, high bitterness. Mouthfeel: Full bodied, creamy. Low carbonation. medium warming. Tingles the tongue! Overall: Extremely well balanced, but the alcohol aroma and taste is a bit sharp. Otherwise very complex and very good! I would like a bit of head retention. 330 ml bottle, poured. *** note: serve colder to hide alcohol. 10C should be good

MrFecesious (1068) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
2011 bottle. Thanks GothGargoyle! Pours a dense brown. Aroma of licorice, raisin, sweet coffee. Taste is super sweet, with a chase of bitterness. Extremely creamy, and sustained dry finish that is nicely balanced. 2013 bottle. More brown sugar, raw toffee aroma. The newer carbonation leads to a more bitter taste and abrupt dry finish.

zacgillbanks (2468) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2014
15.2% bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This jet-black beer pours with a thin creamy tan head. It has an initial super-powerful chocolate and liquorice flavour with roasted coffee, currants and cherries followed by smoked beech, leather and a creamy, fruity, powerfully warming bitter chocolate finish. Superb!

adasko (473) - Poznan, POLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Najlepsze piwo jakie piłem, do momentu oceniania. Pierwsze które dostało pełną 20 ode mnie. Piwo które rzuca na kolana. Bogactwo aromatów i smaków jest niebywałe. Odczucie w ustach perfekcyjne - gęste, smoliste, a przy tym bardzo aksamitne i gładkie.
