COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

Shared by RasmusOtt. Pitch black with a reddish fade near the edge. Dark brown fudgy thick head, and when you whirl it, half an inch of beer gets glued to the glass. Thick as honney. Lots of caramel/chocolate malt in the aroma, but roast, soy, salt, figs, a little earthy and lots of other good stuff. What a mouthfull! Chocolate, dark fruits, port wine, roasty malt and a good bit of alcohol is in the taste, but what is really interesting here is the palate. It is so thick and massive. I don’t think i’ve ever tried anything like it! Really nice!

Pours pitch black with a dark brown espresso head and almost reddish edges. Wow. Aroma of dark bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, roasted malts, earthy feel, almost burnt fudge, burnt figs, weak salty liquorice, spicy feel to it and maybe fruit tobacco. Taste is huge dark rich chocolate, earthy roasted coffee, salty liquorice, spiciness, creamy oily texture, dark dried fruits, very weak soy, vanilla, actually a tiny woody feel and sweeter fudge cake. Alcohol is nice hidden and balance is just top. This beer does not get overly sweet or cloying in any way because of the intense roast!

Idiosynkrasie (4561) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2012
330ml bottle. Pitch black colour with reawakening, average, firm, creamy, lasting, lacing, dark brown head. Rich, complex dark malty aroma, liquorice, coffee, chocolate, leather, treacle, soy sauce. Taste is initially dry dark malty, bitter chocolate, then moderately sweet notes come in, treacle, chocolate, mocca; roasty notes in the finish - wrong: succession of flavours changes with every sip, oscillating intensity, enormous complexity. Only a touch of alcohol resonates constantly. Earns its figure of merit absolutely rightly.

Low carbonation. Rich, molasses taste but not hot. A little sweet for me. Reminds me of a better dark lord of the soul. Hint of oak chips. Strong chocolate malt flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Coal black beer. Very beautiful and looks great. Its very characteristic for a stout but hand to sat svar taste like. A bit to much alcohol taste, but all in all a good beer.

This is a good tasting beer. It is very dark and compact in its taste. Good balance.
