Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, licorice, ash, dark fruit and toffee. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with notes of licorice, chocolate, coffee and toffee. Medium to full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Pretty nice.

uckelman (576) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Pours very dark brown, opaque, No head. Aroma is burnt, roasty, and a hint of cacao at first, becoming malty with hints of molasses as it warms. Flavor is mostly bitter and burnt, mellowing as it warms. Medium body, oily texture.

sarauckelman (374) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Rich, deep black color. Oily head. Aroma of licorice, with hints of tar and cherry cough syrup. Taste is, not surprisingly, very strong in both malt and the bitterness of coffee. Despite this, the palate is somewhat more syrupy than expected -- or desired. A fantastic beer nonetheless, even if not quite to my taste.

stravale (2723) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail [130214]
Pitch, black, thin rim, no lacing. Aroma of espresso roast coffee, slight tart fruits, lots of coffee, not much else. Taste of rich smooth coffee roast, big fruity coffee, dark fruit malts, chocolate, mellow roasted malts, dab of red wine, alcohol well hidden, not all that complex but very good flavour. Palate has a soft carb, medium body, sweet dark fruity malts with soft bitter coffee roast, very little alcohol. Finish as main flavour. Aroma less interesting than the flavour (mainly just roast coffee), body slightly thin but overall some nice fruity coffee in there.

Hansen (8333) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2014
Dark brown, and almost clear. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Sweet, roasted aroma, a bit one-dimentional. Flavor is nice, but mainly sweet and roasted. Syrupy texture.

Kosmokrator (822) - ITALY - FEB 3, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2015 Intenso color marrone scuro con un cappello mediamente persistente di schiuma marroncino chiaro. Al naso offre forti sentori di caffè espresso su un timido velo di toffee e malto caramellato; anche al palato domina il caffè, accompagnato da note di cacao amaro, pasta frolla, frutta sciroppata e un retrogusto più asciutto e debolmente luppolato. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, oleosa e un po’ appiccicosa sul finale, abv ben celato. Praticamente una spremuta di caffè.
