Tap. Jet black with curtains of light tan lacing after a rich tan head. Lightly roasted aroma with some light sweetness as well. Bready and a bit yeasty to go along with the roast and dark chocolate in the flavor, bit of dark fruit as well. Mediumish body. Not bad stuff at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottled, sampled 2010-04-02) Almost black with a large, firm and beige head. Very licoricey nose with sweetish maltiness, some chocolate, and even oakiness. Roasty, slightly burned-charcoaly flavor with sourish maltiness balanced with hefty sweetness. Not much bitterness found underneath all this. Quite full body with soft and low carbonation. This could be a delicious licorice bomb à la Nekron Stout - but it’s not quite balanced enough. Still very good.

Bottle shared by Nnudd. Pitch black body with a creamy tan head. The aroma is peat, caramel, chocolate and dark fruit. The flavour is smoke, peat, soy, tobacco, roasted malt and light chocolate. Lovely.
