Dark brown with a beige head. Aromas are malty with chocolate and coffee. Spicy and herbal with some alcohol. Flavours are chocolate malts with berries. Spicy with warming alcohol. A touch on the gritty side but still decent

nuplastikk (5369) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2013
500ml bottle at Maxs. Deep orange-black. Rim lacing beige head. Pronounced sweet chocolate dessert aroma, not roasty. Tastes overly sweet, very brownie like. Hardly a world class product....chocolate syrup. OK maybe, but definitely not worth a premium price.

Kosmokrator (760) - ITALY - MAR 25, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 Color marrone scuro lievemente torbido con pannosa schiuma beige. Dolciastra, profumata, speziata, leggermente cioccolatosa; gusto vellutato, note di frutta sciroppata, caramello, erbe aromatiche e un tocco legnoso. Corpo medio, effervescenza quasi nulla, struttura oleosa. Particolare, ma non mi ha fatto impazzire.

Braudog (6114) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Draft at the Birch. The aroma is sweet like ice cream. And this drinks with a distinct dessert character -- sweet yet earthy and a little gritty. Lighter in body than I expected. (#4812, 11/3/2012)
