3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a pitch black with highlights of brown, minimal dark tan head, no lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and ever so slight coffee. Flavor matches well with a bit of sweetness and creaminess to it, big surprise huh? Goes down very easy and is quite enjoyable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Got this from Shane. Poured out a pretty jet black with a dark brown head. It was a textbook stout pour. Big roasty nose that was pretty inviting. Flavor was pretty big for a 7.5 abv stout. Big roasted malts, creamy dark chocolate, light nutty bitterness that balances pretty well. It reminded me of a bigger beer without the booziness. I thought this was done quite well.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33l bottle. You can’t really call this anything else than jet black. Dark as the darkest chocolate and it has a really good looking medium sized slowly fading away deep espresso colored head. On the one it’s quite roasted and coffee dark. There’s as sweetness too here. Dry deep dark black inky with traces of dark cardboard and cold coffee. I’ll gladly admit that I like this aroma. Yeah, it’s just as roasted in the taste as the aroma had me believe. Dry deep dark coffee intense with burned wood and hazelnuts. Lots and lots of flavor. It feels oily in the mouth and it’s about average on the bubbles. Delicious to nip at even though it’s about 30 degrees here. It’s leaving a really deep dark roasted aftertaste in the mouth this. I quite enjoyed this creation. 14.06.2014

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours pitch black with a creamy dark brown head. The look is just wonderful. Smell of dark malts, roast, dark fruits and chocolate. Medium sweet, some toast and ash in the back, a distinct roast, cocoa, hints of espresso coffee, some sweet lactose as well. Moderate bitter finish, earthy hops and roast. Nice stuff, quite complex flavor palate. A must try!

Noir pétrole, fine mousse chocolat. Nez de pain grillé et de chocolat. Gout de café et de chocolat et de brûlé. Forte amertume sèche. Corps légèrement liquoreux et crémeux. Ecoeurant et manquant un peu de subtilité.
