UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Superzwart. Geen schuim helaas. Ruikt lekker. Sterke maar lekkere smaak. Koffieachtig. Nu wel veel schuim. Stroperig. Lekker zoet.

sulawang (1053) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2016
Visual: Pours jet black with a small slowly dissipating head, micro fine ringed retention with a medium island, barely visible far scattered super slow micro streams. Nose: sweet medium roast barley malt, molasses, hints of vanilla. (lvl-7)-pungency Attack: half thick-slick, subtle crisp Mid-palate: medium-heavy thick barley malts, (lvl-7-sweetness), medium woody roast, cocoa, Finish: background alcohol tangy on the tongue, soft burnt bittersweet, half licorice notes, vanilla, lingering roasted barley notes Summary: 11% ABV nowhere to be seen - almost completely hidden alcohol unless you look for it. Impressively balanced sip from start to finish. It doesn’t have particularly bold flavours but what is noticeable about this one is its agreeable entry and its firm body. Great composure.

koshack (1355) - Gdańsk, POLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Brunatno czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa, bardzo drobna, obfita. Aromat mocny, gorzka czekolada, likier, kwaskowość. Jest nuta alkoholowa, ale przyjemna likierowa, pralinkowa. W smaku gorzka czekolada. Pozostawia smak przypominający kakao. Bardzo gładkie w odczuciu. Alkohol zaczyna grzać po dłuższej chwili. Mocne, powoduje lekkie drętwienie języka. W aromacie nuty kojarzące się z beczką. Świetne piwo.

Szopeen (344) - POLAND - SEP 28, 2016
Nieprzejrzyście czarne, klarowne, z drobną, ładnie zdobiącą szkło, pianą. W aromacie czekolada, lekka nuta palona, odrobina owoców leśnych w czekoladzie, trochę toffi. W smaku kawa i gorzka czekolada, lekko alkoholowe, porządna goryczka, niskie wysycenie.

Beerheart65 (1421) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2016
Beautiful deep ebony black, dense creamy brown head, good lacing. Coffee, tobacco, horse, leather, licorice, soya, olives, rye. Aroma is nuanced and it’s alive, it’s alive! Full body, sweet, roasted, soft and oily, long finish, dark tones. Excellent! Nuanced, lively, great aroma and flavors and looks. Everything works here and they all work together.

Moebbels (728) - FINLAND - AUG 30, 2016
A pitch black oily body with virtually no head. Mild nose with coffee, chokolate, liquorice and roasted barley. Very sweet taste with a very strong, libgering bitterness. Soft carbonation and incredibly full, almost syrupy body. Very nice beer with a very rich, yet deinkable bosy. Low alcohol presense but a nice warmth.
