Pours an almost black shade of red, no head. Smells like chocolate and alcohol. Spicy sweet chocolate. Smooth and almost creamy, with toffee notes and a hint of coffee. Slight fruit notes in the finish.

corby112 (2704) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Pours a dark chestnut brown color with a half finger beige head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind. Slightly roasted, sweet chocolate malt aroma with hints of cocoa, oatmeal and a subtle lactose sugar presence. There’s also an odd slightly herbal character that I can’t really pin down but the nose smells a lot like tootsie rolls. Light bodied and slightly watered down with sweet cocoa and a faint lactose presence. Kind of bland with slight roast and grassy, herbal hops. Not very interesting with a really weird combination of flavors. Like an herbal, slightly hoppy chocolate beer. Really thin for the style without much oatmeal or stout character.

Absolutbeerginer (41) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 13, 2015
robe noire aux reflets bruns, mousse beige-moka qui retombe rapidement. nez intense de cacao, réglisse et alcool. En bouche, cette bière pétillante au corps imposant, présente un bel équillibre entre l’amertume intense, sèche du cacao et des notes douces amères de réglisse et de sucres de la caroube (sirupeux). Très longue finale, douce et crémeuse. Un verre suffit amplement en guise de dessert.

olsvammel (4686) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2015
Sample at SBWF 2015. Smell of chocolate and oranges. Similar taste. Like drinking liquid "romerska bågar" or orange chocolate.

Farbe schwarz. Geruch säuerlich, alkoholisch mit leichten Röstanteilen. Im Geschmack dann röstig, leicht säuerlich. Ein bisschen schokoladig. Leider fehlt Mundschwere.

Tayeth (511) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2015
Geruch seltsam: süßlich und ein bisschen wie Brause. Geschmack relativ alkoholischen, aber auch nach Schokolade und im Nachgang etwas medizinisch, fast ein bisschen wie Campari. Interessant.

Idiosynkrasie (5325) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 20, 2015
750ml bottle. Darkest brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Chocolately aroma, slightly leafy, nuttily, some cocoa, a tobacco touch. All flavours are almost identically reproduced in taste. Not flattering, not boring - nice.

Keg @ The Birch. Deep brown with a thick tan head. Nose of strong dark chocolate. Leaf pile. Wood. Cinnamon. Plenty of earth. Taste is interesting. Sort of just off choclolate, interesting. Earthy and dry with a creamy finish. Full and fat. Mellow botanicals. Fun.
