4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
660 ml bottle, pours jet black with a dark tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, rich caramel, roasted coffee coming through in the finish. This beer has a melt in the mouth texture which is quite unusual and makes this beer a bit special, leaving a finish that s quite dry, given the thick oily palate you get at the outset. Carbonation is low an the alcohol is noticeable. Not a flawless beer but a really good one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black as night, with a very thin head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and alcohol, with hints of darker fruits. Taste is of rich dark chocolate, toasted malt, with hoppy resin, and a slightly alcoholic fruitiness. Strong mouthfeel, with the hop oils adding a lingering aftertaste. VERY intense flavors, almost overbearing at first, but the complexity and artistrty of this beer cannot be denied.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chocolate, coffee, and molasses in the aroma. Flavor is rich and bready, with lots of coffee and chocolate. Lots of roast coffee bitterness and alcohol in the finish. Lots of nice flavors here, but strong enough to be borderline harsh, especially to non-beer-nerds. Might be even better if you lay it down for a while before opening.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Burned espresso and turpentine aroma
Crude oil black, dark brown layer with tar flecks
Espresso roast and biscotti notes, caramel and sugar sweetness, somewhat sticky, viscous, a hint smoke, dry roastiness - somewhat puckering on the palate. I feel the need to cut this beer with milk or cream - not a good thing I think. Orangepeel and coffee aftertaste, dry hoppiness.
Extreme in a way I don’t really enjoy that much

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Perfect beer. Make sure to not drink too cold. Pitch black pour. Beige head. Very very delicate creamy velvet feel. Absolutely flawless beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled. Poured very deep brown with a just-about-as-dark head. The aroma picked up burnt coffee, licorice, and cocoa with cane sugar, a touch of rum, and smoked malts around.. warm and welcoming. The flavor found syrupy burnt coffee, cocoa, and cane sugar with black peppery notes, burnt roast, and more cocoa around.. finished very roasty with a lot of belly warmth. Heavy-bodied with a thick, syrupy feel across the middle of the palate.. bitter and strong, but not too much of either.. loved it!

draft. Black with a brown head. Some roast in the nose, some hints of chocolate. Roast with some hints of hops in the finish. Incredibly standard.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I needed a spoon for this one. Oily, pitch-black, rich beer. Feast for the senses and an attack on the stomache. Very complex, diverse and quite brilliant.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour with a brown head. The aroma has some strong chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is very similar. There is a good dose of milk chocolate and heavily roasted malt, as well as a bit of ash. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the growler NYC. Pours a pitch black color. Deep cocoa chocolate taste with a milkshake consistency. Very flavorful. Almost like a desert or sweet boozy coffee drink that's cold
