Redig jävla bubblig choklad krona med massa söta korviga kryddiga & torvchoklads dofter. Kroppen är lättare än den ser ut(svart), nästan läskande, retas med mig, törstsläckande & i det svarta hittar vi ändå japanska höstkryddor, svag salami, citron, Japan-humle med svart malton. Spretigt snäll jävel som kanske hade passat bättre som en blonde saison. Men lätt & inte så illa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thick black appearance. Slightest fizz. Very unusual taste, hard to place. Nice though - a bit on the strong side, but good for small doses.

Flyguytruckguy (56) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
Complex aroma of toasted malts, molasses, dark chocolate, and strong coffee. Hoppy flowers and perfume with a touch of earthy yeast. Massive, rocky, light brown, long lasting head with excellent lacing over a dark brown body. Slightly sweet, moderately bitter initial and heavy bitter finish of long duration. Full body, oily texture and lively carbonation. Moderate alcoholic feel to the finish. A killer beer!

Bottle. Deep brown liquid with medium tan head. Aroma of dill, licorice, coffee, red berries, citrus and white pepper. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of citrus, dill and licorice. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Trainwreck , if a rather tasty one.

Poured black with chestnut highlights and a huge mocha colored fluffy head that retained very well and left nice thick lacing. Has an aroma of charred malt, chocolate and dark berries that have just been picked and have some dusty dirt on them. Blueberries come through in the taste with that same earthiness and perceived sweetness, along with a prominent charred/burnt malt flavor that is almost acrid until your palate adjusts to it. Also get some orange rind, anise, chocolate and some mild peppery spiciness. A moderate level of bitterness from the dark malt. Finishes with lingering charred malt flavor and bitterness. Mouthfeel is semi creamy with a medium/full body and high carbonation. Very interesting and unique beer. The charred malt flavors were a bit off putting but became acceptable, although still my least favorite part of the taste. Not one I’d probably buy again but was glad I got to try it.
