On tap at Ginger Man NY
Aroma dark roasts with hint of alcohol. Aroma felt bit understated for style.
Appearance almost pitch black , mid light creamy top.
Flavor and Palate : full bodied , sides are smoky. Dark malt centre , earthy , hint of black soil with burn of alcohol. Bitter hops and dark malt. Mid grade , solid effort yet does not excel in any department.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 26, 2010
Bottle. Blackish beer with a tan head. Rich malt and coffee aroma with light roast and toffee. Caramel/toffee flavor with light coffee, light roast, and backing hops. Medium-plus bodied. Toffee and light fruitiness lingers with chocolate, coffee, and light roast.

italarican (1481) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2010
Bottle at Peters RBSG. Pours dark chocolate brown with a thin tan head. Roasty aroma and lots of chocolate and rich roast malts. A fairly straightforward but high quality nose. Flavor is loaded with chocolate malt with a touch of prune and leather. Slightly chalky finish with some chocolate sweetness. Id have it again, and Id enjoy it.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle. Wow, this is great! and really lives up to its rating! Pours a darker duller near black with a smaller frothy light tan head. Aroma is brightly fruity, juicy, floral fragrant, purple fruit (makes sense in my head), dark molasses, maybe something funky in the works, hoppy. Flavor of dark fruits, bright juicy fruity, floral, freshly hoppy, almost Black Albert like, just a touch of soy and grains, dark chocolate, licorice finish, lasting bitter roast, nice hint of alcohol, very brightly hoppy. Full bodied with spread-out sizzling carbonation, thick but quite drinkable, marshmallowy slick. Reminds me greatly of Black Albert! I love it!

jtclockwork (8595) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2010 Bottle at Pilsner Petes RBSG courtesy of Brian. Pours black. Nose is massive amounts of chocolate and mocha. Some other undertones I cant quite place. Taste is very smooth chocolate, grain and lightly smoked oak.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 12, 2010
(Bottled) Almost black with a medium, tight and lacy, brown head. Very roasted-milky-sourish-malty aroma with chocolate, licorice, and tarry notes. Flavor is roasty, salty-licoricey, slightly sour burned in the finish, but quite well balanced with malt sweetness. Hides the ABV remarkably well. Sticky, but not quite full-bodied with medium, slightly fizzy carbonation. Maybe not 100% balanced, but a truly enjoyable IS - reminds me of another favorite, Djvlebryg Pride of Nekron.

Black with a fizzy white head. Aroma of chocolate oak and coffee. Full bodied slightly sticky palate. Roasted grain chocolate coffee and oak taste. P

Bottle shared by Rciesla. Black pour with some tan head. Roasted and chocolate malt, with some alcohol bite. Oak like finish with some hints of licorice. Decent.
