This is an amazing beer. Full of complex flavors, and maybe too much for some people. I love this beer it has flavors of, coffee, chocolate, nuts. Too bad it’s only a limited run

Very dark appearance with a medium brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate malts. Taste is a perfect blend of roasted chocolate and coffee with some bitterness. Overall one of the best I have had.

drpimento (2219) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2012
A fine tuned heavy hitter. Poured with a decent tan foamy head tht slowly settles and good lace. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma is roast, coffee, malt, toffee. Flavor’s like nose, sweet on top, but short lived and followed quickly by carbonic tand and dark roast coffee, bitter from coffee, black malt, and yeastoids fit perfeclty. Body and carbonation are perfect. Finish length is average for style and likewise boozy for style. Good drinkin’ brew.

Pouring into glass very thick and creamy. Both in nose and mouthfeel is dark chocolate and bitter coffee from the beginning to the end, with a very consistent and lonlasting development. Traces of sweet alcohol and roasted malts. Excellent.

GraveAtSea (139) - Lublin, POLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Bottle 0,33l Color - Black. Dark brown foam, in first time huge, then decrease to nice sheepskin and dissapear to thin layer. Intense, excellent aroma - roasty malts, raisins, cherry liqueur, some vanilla, a bit chocolate and coffee. Taste complex. Sweet with a smooth bitter finish. Coffee, roasty malts, black malts, cherry liqueur, fruits in liqueur, dark chocolate, raisins - I love this kind of taste. Very velvet, smooth and oily. Long warming finish. Alcohol hidden. Heavy but very drinkable. Great beer.
