Big thanks to baker for this want! Pours thick oily black out of the bottle, nice creamy tan head. Aroma literally made me step back and say "whoa," huge aroma of bitter dark chocolate, raisin and dark fruit, coffee, lots of toffee and caramel notes with a touch of lactose. Full and awesome. Taste is not like the aroma, but in a good way. The bitterness attacks at the end in a good way, you get a ton more of the dark fruit, roast, and coffee to balance the chocolate. Very impressively creamy, carbed well to push it through the palate, overall an excellently crafted brew.

2010 Vintage 75 cl. bottle@Kulminator – shared – bottle nr. 398/468: black with small not-lasting mocha head, smell is roasted malt, creamy coffee, slightest hint of hops & alcohol, taste is very big & upfront it is slightly bitter coffee, pitch-black malt, burned cocoa, charcoal, black chocolate, aftertaste is strong almost bourbon-like alcohol, very distinct & present & very not-beer-like but enjoyable, bottom of the glass was filled with indefinable chunks of something, weird

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2012 Brought this beer with me to a tasking. About half of the people hated it and half of the people loved it. There?s no middle way with this one. I was one of the people who loved it. Really dark, very bitter. Roasty.

330ml bottle. Dark brown body with a medium light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, caramel, bitterness. Flavor is sweet toffee, alcohol, roasted malt, bitter coffee, vanilla. The alcohol tickles the tonque. Very drinkable.

kermis (9985) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2011
Bottle at De Paas. Pours very dark brown with tan head that doesn’t last. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and sweet caramel with some alcohol. Flavor has same aspects with dark fruits, raisins and liqurice. Excellent beer, beaten by some of the BA versions

Opaque black beer with a short lived chocolate coloured head. Soft palate. Very light for the style. Frothy and creamy. Soft dark malt. Subtle undertone of red fruit, cherry and a little plum. Light coffee and toasted malt notes. Traces of banana and bubblegum in the finish. All very well joined up in to a light Imperial Stout.

Koelschtrinker (16440) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Stark aromatischer Malzgeruch sowie Antrunk, ebenfalls stark fallen die Röstnoten auf. Diese werden passend leicht süß angeboten und werden mit der Zeit vollmundiger. Kaffeeartiger werdend, spätestens hier merkt man, dass das Malz ein Alleinunterhalter ist.Zum Ende süßer, das Malz wird etwas schwächer, wird aber durch stärker werdende Röstigkeit ausgeglichen. Etwas mehr Abwechslung wäre schön! 11/11/11/12//11

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Intensiver malzschokoladiger und rauchiger Geruch. Süßmalziger Auftakt mit einer leicht holzigen Note. Mittig nougatschokoladig mit dezent fruchtiger Likörnote. Im Abgang sehr dicht und malzig, schokoladig, räucherig und deutlich zulegende Alkoholnote, welche eher angenehm wärmt und nicht kratzt. Fülliges und dennoch verblüffend liquides Bier. Sehr gefällig.Test vom 20.10.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Holy (837) - GERMANY - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle shared during a schedule sell. Very intense, complex collection of flavors. I could swear that it was aged in some kind of whisky/cognac barrel - intense alcohol aftertaste. Nice.
