Bottled. Pitch black, rather thick fluid, with a minor brown head. Aroma is mild roast, some liquorice and alcohol. Flavour is quite similar with some mild notes of herbs and grassy bitterness as well. Yet rather sweet and messy.

On tap in Zly Casy, Prague. I may have not appreaciated it good enough, with something this thick and heavy being my first beer of a really hot and sunny day. Very dark, black colour with an elegant, modestly small and disappearing head. Feels very thick, rich and deep in every way. Large amounts of roasted malts in the taste, chocolate and coffee notes make the alcohol hardly noticable in the taste. Well spent 99 Czech Crowns.

Guest draft ale at BrewDog Glasgow, one-third pint. Near black with a brownish shade, circular edge of bubbly foam. Very aromatic with dark chocolate malts, alcohol and vanilla sweetness. Delicious and flavoursome with cocoa malts, oak vanilla and anise offset by red orange. Lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Full bodied. Perfect as the dessert after the brewdog pizza (Glasgow, 10.04.2012).

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Chargrilled cocoa notes with a lacey, stain yer shirt for good syrup black body and head tinted Caramac blonde which swathes in darkness with every swirl. Deep stickly molasses initially with a chasm of hops in the crypt dark finish. For the ABV it’s deceptively moreish, a neat dry finish without an expected cough syrup linger. The balance of savoring excellence and bedrock of sturdy Bourbon time served offers a dessert beer sheen really boxes the excellence off. (Brewdog, Glasgow, Keg)
