bottle into my birthday Prairie snifter. Thanks mom! Nose is dark chocolate and roast. Sip adds licorice, dark fruit and more chocolate. complex bitterness of the dark chocolate variety. Slight toast aftertaste. Dark not in the color, but in the mood. Slight booziness after a few sips. Pairs well with music from Rosetta Stone (the band).

unclemike (2685) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - NOV 28, 2015
High and long lasting creamy light brown head. Pitch black body. If you like coffee this is definately a brew for you. The aroma is absolutely of a powerful roasted cofee. Flavor is also of coffee but in addition has creamy and bitterr notes. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste. Alcohol well hidden. Nice balance.

Turboninja (282) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2015
Bottle@home, from WineSpot, Cleveland, USA. Medium/strong slightly bitter but smooth aroma of coffee and licorice. Pitch black color with minimal beige head. Strong bit bitter taste of coffee, licorice and slightly roasted malts. A hint of raisin. Medium balanced. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with roasted malts and licorice. Strong/medium body with medium carbonation. Overall not as smooth as the aroma promised, also the body could be stronger. Other vice nice high quality though ordinary IS.

Fatehunter (1829) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Pours a half finger of tan head on a black body. The aroma is rich chocolate, caramel and milk. The taste is bitter chocolate and coffee to start, mildly sweet middle and finishes bitter with the alcohol heat lingering. An aggressive profile. The texture is thick. It smells great, and the big flavors make this a sipper.

Finn (5176) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 7, 2015
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet Tromsø - Sentrum. Svart. Høyt pent mokkafarget skum som daler salte. Litt lacing. Herlig aroma av lakris og sherry. Oljeaktig munnfølelse. Smaken sjokolade - men blir for syrlig & tørr. Ettersmak av kaffe.

aleksander9 (957) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2015
Black with tan head. Roast, spice, floral, banana bread and red berries. Sweet, dry and chocolate milkshake finish. Overall: The title is poetic, and so is the beer.

ebone1988 (628) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Aroma is licorice, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, sweet malt. Appearance is black, light brown head, poured thick. Taste is roasted malt, licorice, finishes a touch sour for some reason, then coffee and chocolate, smoke. Mouthfeel is medium body, medium carbonation which isn?t that great. Overall, a little disappointing, considering their other stout selection.

Det är nog sympati snarare än besvikelse som känns när något så välgjort och vågat faller på obalanserade smaker. Jag hoppas nånstans att det är mina smaklökar det är fel på den här gången.
