Leaking bottle. Opaque dark brown - black beer. Good bubbly pale tan head. Palate is airy and crisp and semi dry. Minerals, Mild dark malts with mild unsweet dark chocolate. Very light peppery spice. Hops are a very mild orange marmalade. Light dry finish. It’s an okay for a dark ale but very hop light for a CDA.

Grzesiek79 (3148) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Bardzo dobre piwo ciemne IPA po wlosku. Piana moze ne za wielka ale glebia czarnego koloru i zapach chmielny i aromatyczny. Smak palony wytrawny i goryczkowy, troche pieprzowy i ogolnie przyprawowy. Goraco polecam. Swietne piwo i ladna etykieta.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 6, 2014
Cacao, coffee, tea, vanilla and some nice but mild resin and pine hops. Soft carbonation fits the smooth bitterness. Drinks well, slightly warming. Nice soft sweet cacao aftertaste. Enjoyable beer in a great beer style. Add a touch if dry hop aroma and it would be great. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

fridus (5) - lucca, ITALY - APR 7, 2014 does not count
si presenta con un colore profondo che quasi intrappola la luce, schiuma sottile leggera e mediamente persistente, note tostate e caramellate unite ad una bella luppolatura, leggermente erbacea, il pepe si nota lievemente e trovo che sia un tocco di stile ed un azzardo ben riuscito! una ottima birra sicuramente!

Kosmokrator (457) - ITALY - FEB 13, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2014 Alla spina. Color nero lucido con fragile ma stabile cappello di schiuma beige. Al naso sentori dolciastri di pesca, agrumi, luppolo e caramello; gusto maltato e fruttato che evolve presto verso un amarognolo luppolato e tostato con lievi note di frutta secca e liquirizia. Corpo medio-lieve, struttura leggermente oleosa, effervescenza gentile.
