Great, very great beer, because of its complexity and intended -I hope it was intended- weirdness. It’s like an imperial stout mixed with vegetables (sic), peppers, etc. Great coffeish character, which is the main note, designing a weird, crazy and probably unique beer.

MiP (15253) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 24, 2014
Bottle, 11.6%. Sweet and roasted aroma, vinous, alcoholic and bready. Very dark brown colour, seems unclear. The flavour is salty at first, then sour, sweet, alcoholic. I do not like the sourness, it tastes a bit like old rag. Do not know if it is intended.

Bamsen78 (5010) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy tan head. Dark aroma of malt and roasted coffee but, first of all, alcohol. Roasty and bitter flavour, with sweet notes of caramel malt and chocolate, and sourish notes of coffee beans. Sourish and boozy aftertaste. Good but not top notch.

ClaudeB04 (338) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - APR 20, 2014
Deep black, small head, intense smell of dark chocolate and coffee, reminds me indeed a lot of the mocca icecream of my childhood. Taste is mocca icecream, finish just a little bitter, leaves chocolate notes. A bit deceived that there are not more nuances. It combined nicely with chocolate eggs, so I might have to taste it again together with one of my wifes fabulous chocolate cakes?

Macegan75 (816) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle from the Bierkonig in Amsterdam. Pours black with minimal large bubble head. Aroma is molasses, chocolate cake batter and espresso. First sip is similar but a tad thin. Very little boozy flavors. Finish is dry with coffee flavors.

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.

Un mal lote, imagino. Aroma a verduras cocidas, igual que el sabor. Tendré que volver a probarla próximamente.

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.
