4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, bought @ Bierkoning, Amsterdam.
Pours completely black with a small, creamy, brown head. Aroma has loads of dark creamy chocolate, light roasted, slight coffee touch, a bit of blackberries. Medium carbonation, lovely creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, extremely malt heavy. Chocolate, light smoky, some oaky character, light charred, mildly roasted, some notes of cold coffee. Long, lingering, malty bitter aftertaste. Very well composed beer. Nice.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours dark black with a small dark tan head. Very nice aroma of smooth toasted malt and some dark fruit. Full bodied with frothy carbonation. Lots of flavor. Fruit and dark malt, but coffee seems to come forth in the end. Maybe a touch of prune. Finiishes heavy and malty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours black in color with a sizable tan head.
S: Rich notes of chocolate and roast with what seems to be oak. Thereís a fair amount of smoke to it as well as a light spice, seems like pepper. Molasses and just a hint of vanilla add some sweetness.
T: The flavor is much heavier on the smoke. A lot of roasted malt and dark chocolate with some hints of dark fruit and licorice. Espresso/coffee notes with a bit of earthiness to it.
M: Rather full bodied with a medium carbonation.
O: A bit smokey for me on the palate, but quite good otherwise.

Tap at Mugs in Brooklyn. I was really excited to try this. Poured a dark, brown-black with an intense, thick brown head. Staunch aroma of roasted malts, char, tobacco, soy sauce and chocolate. Flavor starts quite sweet with nice, dark malts. Finishes with some dry roastiness. Full bodied with average carbonation and lots of warming alcohol. There is some lingering afterburn from the booze, along with tobacco roast. Really great beer.

Bottle. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted malt, chocolate and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. A standout brew.
