Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Poured into a tulip glass. No foam at all. Small carmel colored ring forms around the edge. Color is black in the glass. No light comes through at all. The scent is roasted malt, dark chocolate and a little hop. Very nice. First sip while cold is intense coffee and chocolate. Smooth heavy mouthfeel with surprising carbonation. As it warms up you get a little more carmel sweetness in both the smell and taste. Still lots of dark chocolate. This is great beer. Definitely something to try if you haven’t.

Bottle purchased at the Hoppy pub in Thessaloniki-Greece, consumed almost 2 years later. Black pour, brownish foam. Nose: rich choccolate, coffee, some cream too. Mouth: nice! Roasted malts, hops, a bit more flat after almost 2 years aging but easier to drink. Nice!

Malziger, milder weicher Röstantrunk. Süffig, angesichts des Stils und Alkoholgehalts ungewöhnlich. Malzig herber Mittelteil, Andeutungen des Alkoholgehalts, leicht holzig. Gut. 12/10/11/11/11/11

Gentle_Ben (36) - Rutland, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2016
Black with a red/tan head. Nose is malt, chocolate and well complimented with bitter hops. The taste is nicely complex although the alcohol is to the fore which detracts from the pleasant malty base. Dark sugars, chocolate and raisins are lifted by a nice hoppy finish. Pleasant enough but surprisingly alcoholic for the relatively tame ABV.

szymonskc (336) - Skórcz, POLAND - MAR 6, 2016
Aromat intensywny, gorzka czekolada, kakao, kawa, paloność, czekoladki z alkoholem, ciemne owoce. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana niska, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa, niezbyt trwała, delikatny lacing. W smaku pełne, gęste, masa kawy, czekolady i ciemnych owoców. Przyjemna paloność, wszystko świetnie ze sobą współgra. Alkohol ukryty znakomicie, goryczka średnia, czekoladowa. Wysycenie średnie. Piwo świetne, znakomicie ułożone, pycha.
