355 ml bottle from Astral Beers. Pitch black, impossible to see through, with a small, creamy and peristent light brown head. Crazy nose, so powerful and in your face that you don’t even need to keep the glass close: tons of roasted malts notes, 70%+ dark chocolate, vanilla beans, some subtle licorice presence as well. Taste follow suite with no surprises: slick and velvety mouthfeel that doesn’t feel cloying at all, moderate but clean and lingering toasted and earthy bitterness, plenty of both chocolate and coffee taste. Excellent drinkability considering the ABV. Soft to average carbonation, medium body, oily texture. Superb!

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana opada dosc szybko, ale jest, bezowa i drobna. Ladnie zdobi szklo. Aromat gesty, czekoladowy, wrecz risowy. Dosc szybko sie jednak rozwiewa. W smaku palone, co ciekawe z nutami gumy balonowej, moze lesnych owocow. Palony, dlugi aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Roasted aromas, quite a bit of chocolate, a bit sweet - just nicely so.
Color is black, with a fairly small tan head.
Taste is a bit sweet with a nice general bitterness.
Full bodied; oily/creamy texture; a long finish, with roasted coffee and chocolate.
Overall this is a quite good beer. Good complexity, with roasted coffee, chocolate and some sweetness that works well, providing some balance.
