This poured a darker brown to almost black with a beige head. Aroma was of dark roasted malt, peppers and light chocolate. Flavor was similar, a pepper character for sure, is this astringent coffee or an incorrectly labeled decico version?

Bottle. Dark black pour with a big mocha head. Chocolate cake, flour, coffee, perfume, vanilla. Medium to full body. Hides the alcohol well. Bitter sweet body. Good but more bitter chocolate cake then a doughnut.

Visuoel (5) - SWEDEN - APR 13, 2015 does not count
Deep and creamy aroma with a lot of hoppy tones. Dark chocolate taste with burnt sugar. Accept for a prominent alcohol taste it is creamy and smooth with light floral hoppiness but with an apparent bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nordcore (1115) - Lyngen alps, NORWAY - APR 7, 2015
Bottle 65 cl. Black with a lightbrown head. Lots of chocolate aroma, with some coffee sense. Sweet taste, light bitter with a long soft chocolate end. Old notes...

fiulijn (16176) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Draught at Apex, Portland
Black color, creamy brown head. Full roasty aroma, with something more, like the icing on a doughnut. Full bodied; the malt expresses a good chocolate flavor, some coffee, but there is a candy exogenous element that clashes with the rest.
Weird, not completely pleasant, and grossly overpriced (7$ for 6oz, that I didn’t pay).

Catching up on notes. Draft at the Avenue Pub in New Orleans on April 13, 2014 after the French Quarter Festival. Was visiting family in Louisiana and the wife and I got to spend a couple days in the city. Pours pitch black with thin layer of tan head. AROMA of cream vanilla, cafe au lait, nutty biscotti, milk chocolate, doughy bready malts, almonds and maybe hazelnuts. FLAVOR has lots of dark bitter chocolate, vanilla biscotti, mild coffee, nutty roasted malts, and a hint of glazed cinnamon doughnut. Finishes with a milk chocolate sweetness and a little roasty coffee. The big 11.5% is mostly well concealed here. Not much in the way of actual doughnuts here (somewhat disappointing), but still quite good. (366, 957)
