3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to someone for sharing this at bu11zeye’s 10,000th tasting in April 2012. Black with a tan head. The aroma is full of roasted malt with some chocolate and oak notes. The flavor is chocolate, oak and roasted malt. There is also an unidentified flavor and aroma that I can’t quite put my finger on, but that doesn’t quite agree with me. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Big big big. Massive aroma of licorice coffee which follows in to the flavor. Massively complex flavors, licorice, vegetal/ vegemite notes and some mocha and a long finish. Not a hint of the 10%abv.

Appearance: Black color with a fine thick beige head.
Aroma: Coffee, and mild chocolate.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a moderate bitterness. Soft carbonation. Creamy texture.
Taste: Mild balanced dominating licorice, mild coffee and light roasted malt. Dangerously well hidden alcohol!
Overall impression: They promised a high IBU. I was sober and loved to try this one. Did hardly notice any high IBU. Anyway a nice evening sipper.
