4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a froth, very stable beige head of decent size, with a virtually black color, leaving delicate sheets of lacing at the glass.
Nose surprises me, because it inherits an easy recognizable tropical hop note, which settles above coffee beans and earthy malts - reminding me of a Black IPA.
Begins with roasted coffee and earthy, slightly toasted malts, which, from the very first moment, builds a very satisfying foundation. This gets wrapped up by sweeter caramels, toffee hints and a load of fruity hops, in which papaya and orange really stand out against the rich malt flavors. The hops introduce a gentle bitterness to the palate, enhanced by a lively carbonation. Very smooth, slightly smoked beneath the maltiness, creamy with a crisp addition, due to the present hops. Finishes pleasantly sweet, after a malty, coffeeish introduction, with cane sugar, spawning from the slightly metallic carbonation, accompanied by a creamy, convincing bitterness from both hops and coffee. I am actually amazed how well all the flavors interact in this, great brew with a fantastic taste diversity.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours thick, tarry brown-ish black, opaque with dark tan head. The head dampens all the aroma, even swirling doesn’t help. Thick and full of notes of burnt ashes and smoke, and a very little bit of molasses and oatmeal. Very bitter.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 Bottled from biernavigatie.nl. Opaque black, thick brown head. Nose of roasted malts coffee, some licorice. Initially malty flavor with some chocolate, later on mainly chocolate, coffee, and lots of bitterness. Not bad, but with a bit too much one-dimensional bitterness.

Bottle, pours black with a tan head. Aroma: roast, coffee, liquorice. Taste expands on that, adding liquorice, citrus and resin notes, dark chocolate. Light-medium sweetness, medium-high bitterness and a slight sourness. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Nice long dry finish. The hoppy notes hint a bit towards black ipa. Like!
