Barwa czarna, smolista, nieprzejrzysta, gęsta już na pierwszy rzut oka. Sporo drobinek chmielowych. Piana skąpa, ale zwarta i drobnopęcherzykowa. Aromat słodowy, słodki, ciemne owoce, konkretnie palone, kawa i odrobineczka czekolady. Bomba. W smaku jest gorzka czekolada i lekko kwaskowa kawa, goryczka, ciemne owoce, jeżyny. Wszystko okraszone odrobina lekko rozgrzewającego alkoholu. Wysycenie średnie, pełne, oleiste, aksamitnie wchodzące, goryczka średnia w stronę wysokiej z owocowo, czekoladowo, alkoholowym finiszem.

MarkoNm (1740) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle at malamačka. Pours a pitch black color, topped with a decent, cream colored head. Roasty aroma, coffee notes and some chocolate. Mild dried fruity notes. Mildly roasty taste, fine bitterness. Alcohol nicely hidden, just some fine warming feel. Strong and creamy.

Calisky (1750) - ALSACE, FRANCE - AUG 20, 2015
Courtesy of Jaghana Couleur noire, aucune mousse. Nez grain de café, toasté, houblon et baies. Gout très amer, baton réglisse, caramel, café, note chocolat et douce. Bien mais l’amertume prend le dessus sur la subtilité des autres saveurs.

ShivanDragon (2339) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2015
Schenkt als motorolie bruine kraag, ziet er super uit. Aroma van geroosterde en gebrande mout, koffie, zoet, vanille. Smaak romig, redelijk geroosterde bitterheid, koffie/mocca, matig zoet, laurier, pepertje, droog, veel koffie in de afdronk, lage co2. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Butelka, warka do 13/03/17. Wyglada bardzo fajnie, ze swa prawie czarna barwa, oleista konsystencja, ciemna, drobna piana. Aromaty palonosci, czekolady, kawy, troche (niestety dosc malo) suszonych ciemnych owocow i rodzynek. W smaku tez to wszystko jest, ale generalnie malo slodyczy a dosc duzo kwaskowatosci. pelne w ustach, choc tez rekordow w tym stylu na pewno nie bije zadnych. dosc wysoka goryczka. Alkohol dosc mocno wyczuwalny, mimo, ze wszak poltora roku po rozlewie... dobry. Jako glowna wada: jak dla mnie zbyt wysoka kwaskowatosc i moze ciut zbyt uboga paleta

hrabren (248) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 4, 2015
0.33 bottle at Punk Rock Holiday, Tolmin, Slovenia. Very dark brown with brownish head. Chocolate, dry fruits aroma. Very dry, woody, roasty, chocolate. Very dry finish, too. Coffee. Nicely dry hopped. It’s a good RIS, and good hops!

Arôme de chocolat puis de houblon et de liqueur. Goût de chocolat puis de houblon. Arrière goût amer et d’alcool qui fait bien chauffer la gorge. Bière bien lourde.
