Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
Dark brown. Not much head. Oily, slightly burnt, a touch of alcohol. Rich, burnt sugars, touch of torched fruit. Kind of a simple character, but fairly intense.

mcberko (14080) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2016
500mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma smells a bit off, with a slight sour note, and roasted malt. Flavour is heavy on the roasted malt, with some bitter dry cocoa, and an off-putting bitter astringency. Mind-boggling how this has such a high rating. Messy, incoherent and potentially infected. Not impressive.

Benzai (13678) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2016
Bottle shared by Countbeer, thanks! Opaque black color, full sized brown head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is malts, dark and roasted malts, tar. Taste malts, roasted malts, liquorice, tar, bitter. Decent body, medium carbonation. Solid.

Ferris (12431) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2016
Bottle - Dark roasty cocoa. Deep dark brown with a small light brown head. Dirty cocoa notes, overcarbed and a long light bitter finish. Not great.

maneliquor (3483) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours pitch black with a small, dense lightly tanned head leaving some solid lacing. Head stays for the duration. Nose takes a little while to come out and is a touch subdued. Some sweet, bitter cocoa, biscuit, a touch of ash and espresso. Taste is very coffee forward with a lot of bitterness through the palate. Dark chocolate adds to the beer to give it a slight mocha tone throughout. Charred malts play a big role. Palate is soft with light carbonation. Easy drinking for a 10% brew. Tasty stuff
