11.2 oz bottle from WLV. Pours dark murky oily brown with small dark brown head. Aromas of dark chocolate, burnt malts, coffee, some caramel and booze in there as well. Flavors of bitter burnt malts, coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruits, and finishes with some alcohol warmth. Finishes really dry and bitter. Picking up some more dark fruit and black licorice flavors as I progress through my snifter. Loved it at first but fell off towards the end of the glass.

kappldav123 (5890) - GERMANY - JUL 6, 2011
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, heavy malty aroma, roasty and dry. Starts very strong, smokey, coffee notes, chocolate. Finish a bit milder in the first moment, then more and more burning malty with earty-strong malty notes, notes of dried fruits. Intense finish. Great beer!

How can someone rate this beer? Besides the words amazing and perfect, there is nothing else that can be said. Drunk it from a 33ml bottle (the 75ml one, was kept for aging. The chocolate aromas and taste were amazing, while the after taste brings some coffee-ishness up. I loved it. Next time, i will drink it while eating a piece of chocolate cake.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2016 Re-rate September 20th 2014 to replace an old amateur rating. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized decently lasting dark brown head. Aroma is malts, dark and roasted malts, dark chocolate, mocha, coffee, a slight hint of liquorice. Taste malts, dark and roasted malts, dark chocolate, strong roast, coffee, again lightly liquorice, roasty bitter. Oily texture, full body, medium carbonation. Absolutely delicious! -- Im upgrading this beer once more. It is my go to stout and it never diappoints. Rich, oily, full bodied, full of flavor. Simply amazing every time. Up from 8-5-8-5-17 (4.3) to 4.5.

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.

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.
