SkillsFactory (481) - ITALY - JAN 18, 2016
33 cl. 11,6% ABV. Nera con riflessi caramello, schiuma ocra chiara quasi inesistente e poco persistente. Aroma di caffè, frutti rossi, cioccolato fondente, vaniglia, leggero rabarbaro e toffee. Al palato stesse componenti con cioccolato e caffè in evidenza, i quali permangono nella coda misti a toffee e frutti rossi. Corpo pieno, poco carbonata, texture oleosa.

Bawelt (420) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 6, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2016 Une réussite. Nez café, moka (un vrai !), chocolat, équilibre magnifique. Un très léger fond floral.Bouche : un vrai corps, un vrai caractère de café fort torréfié, chocolaté, très équilibré. Des fruits rouges en soutien pour la rondeur.Un modele du genre. Vraiment.

SudsMcDuff (7741) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2015
first beer of the day after zwanze 2015 shenanigans the night before, very hung over like a chump, it was funny how everyone in the pub was talking about it though .. . dark black with a pretty coco head ring .. . coffee, roast, charcoal, and cooking chocolate .. very easy to put down, finished my glass in 5-10 minutes, very luxurious drink .. . . Charlie was racked with guilt, He killed at least 20 pigeons, no one needs that.

pityu (487) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 16, 2015
Bottle - Opaque black colour, medium, stable brown head, lacing. Strong coffee and chocolate aromas, some ash, burnt breadcrust, cocoa powder. Taste is bittersweet, lots of coffee and dark chocolate, some caramel, ash notes. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, creamy texture, some alcohol warmth in the end, but not offensive. Its totally about roasted and coffee aromas, nice, but a bit unbalanced for this reason.

Lele (356) - Padova, ITALY - DEC 6, 2015
ASPETTO: nero impenetrabile, ma si vede con moltissime impurità. Schiuma quasi assente. AROMA: il sentore predominante è, paradossalmente...il peperoncino. Non ho mai sentito un odore così. Seguono un cioccolato e un caffè forti, nonché del cacao amaro. GUSTO: soprattutto cioccolato dolce, caffè e liquirizia. Un tocco come di legnoso e di vaniglia. Carbonizzazione molto bassa (forse un po’ troppo). CONCLUSIONE: birra molto gustosa, ma non povera di difetti sia nell’aspetto che nell’aroma e nel gusto. Quell’aroma di peperoncino è decisamente strano, ma ci sta. Comunque decisamente apprezzabile.

alteregoo (716) - POLAND - DEC 5, 2015
Po przelaniu do szkła tworzy się niewielka, beżowa pianka, szybko redukująca się do obrączki jak na cappuccino. Barwa ciemno brązowa, nieprzejrzysta, z kawałkami drożdży pływającymi przy dnie. Aromat przyjemny, wytrawny, zdominowany przez palone ziarna wysokiej jakości kawy, w tle odrobina sosu sojowego i koniak. W smaku wita nas fajna słodycz, czego nie zapowiadał zapach i dość wysokie odfermentowanie. Kawa dominuje także w ustach, towarzyszą jej palone słody, delikatne taniny i wanilia (dębina). Goryczka średnio wysoka i długa, podbijana likierowym alkoholem, który rozgrzewa chwilę po połknięciu. Nagazowanie niskie, rzadka konsystencja jak na RISa. Mocna zimna kawa (właściwie esencja) z dodatkiem niewielkiej ilości coli i whisky, z przyjemnym aromatem i fajną goryczką. Na RISa mało ciała i nie do końca ułożony alkohol...
