sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2013
22 oz bottle, Andersons, $8.99. Jet black; smaller dark brown head dissipates quickly into nothing. Aroma is deep and dark but not extremely strong; chocolate and roast predominantly, with vanilla, oatmeal, and some dark sweetness. Flavor is "big" yet also not overly strong or bitter. I dig this for somehow being heavy while also not being overpowering. The balance is good, too, but what this lacks for me is much complexity and "wow factor." Very good if a little too textbook.

mariuspoenari (410) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2015
Review from memory - I had this beer at an evening tasting with friends, and was the star of the evening, together with DORIS. Chocolate, roasted malts, a bit of caramel, thick mouthfeel but goes down easy.

ebone1988 (769) - Taylor, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2015 Aroma is really good. Dark fruits, licorice, coffee, milk chocolate, oatmeal, roasted malt, really nice. Appearance is black, brown head, poured very very thick. Taste is sweet chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, a bit of licorice, oatmeal, dark fruit, a really roasty finish. Mouthfeel is thick, heavy body, soft carbonation, a lingering aftertaste that morphs from sweet to coffee bitter, dry finish, just really really good. Overall, yowza. This is very impressive.
