Danish: Nu synes vi, at tiden er inde til denne øl. Her er tale om en kraftig stout på 11% med coffeemalt, choclatemalt, black malt og honning. Vi har humlet til 120 IBU, vi har tørhumlet og lagret den med egetræ og valnød. Nu synes vi, at den har lagret tilstrækkeligt, så nu skal den på flasker. Hvad smager den af? Dem der har smagt den, siger kaffe, lakrids, honning, eg og valnød. Men døm selv.

LoFi (1707) - Göteborg, - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle. Pitch black with porous and creamy, chocolate mousse-like brown head. Aroma: coffee, creamy, chocolate, lightly roasted, licorice, fruit, honey. Taste: licorice, wine gums, cocoa, coffee, salmiak, warming, maybe some wood, some bitterness, dry finish. Full-bodied and pretty smooth. Maybe I liked Black Magic Woman better, but this was really nice.

Franckg (986) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2016
Bouteille avec un BB de 01/02/2024, probablement embouteillée le 01/02/2014 donc bue après 28 mois. Robe noire opaque surmonté d’un léger col de mousse brunâtre crémeux et bref. Les arômes se présentent sous plusieurs formes mais c’est surtout l’amer qui ressort. Beaucoup de café expresso, malt rôti, anis, cacao, caramel brûlé, bois. Quelques effluves sucrées se démarquent tels miel et petits fruits confits. En bouche, c’est une entrée en matière comme les arômes: café et anis. Suivent rapidement le malt rôti, caramel, cacao moulu, noisettes bien amères. On se dirige lentement vers une finale où le café se mêle à des saveurs de chocolat noir intense ainsi qu’à un goût franc de bois sec. Haut taux d’alcool discret. Texture laiteuse/onctueuse, corps rond à tendance moyenne. Très faible carbonatation. Excellent stout.

adasko (1705) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 19, 2016
Pitch black, completelly non-transparent. Two to three fingers tanned, almost brown, frothy head, which is quite persistant. Awesome lacing. In aroma a lot of beautiful dark notes: bitter chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate cake, sweet coffee, brownie. From the glass has also some sherry, port wine, rum notes. Very rich aroma. Taste is a bit similar, but it’s much more rough, much taugher. Chocolate is definately moved to the background. Coffee is on the first plan. Coffee with some wooden, roasted, toasted notes. Has also a touch of dark bread and burned cake bottom. Quite big bitterness in the aftertaste, but it’s not overwhealming. I was hopping for much thicker and dense mouth feel. Unfortunately it isn’t. Perfectly low carbonated. Alcohol is perfectly covered. Very good beer, but it’s not my top level choice.

alteregoo (744) - POLAND - APR 26, 2016
Piana beżowa, drobna, nieduża. Barwa prawie czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z brązowymi refleksami. Aromat bardzo intensywny, jest czekolada, praliny, orzechy, likier kawowy, po ogrzaniu także żelazistość od europejskiego chmielu. W smaku dość słodkie, bardzo kakaowe, kawowe, tytoniowe, piernikowe, a nawet rodzynkowe. Po chwili do głosu dochodzi chmielowo palona goryczka, dość wysoka i długa, świetnie kontrująca słodycz. W posmakach szwajcarskie czekoladki, trufle, orzechy, porto i wanilia. W odczuciu wyraźna popiołowość, treściwość, średnie jak na styl nagazowanie (szkoda, bo przez to piwo wydaje się mniej gęste niż po odgazowaniu). Alkoholu praktycznie nie czuć - dopiero po chwili lekkie rozgrzewanie na żołądku.
Bardzo ułożony, słodki (przez ten miód odrobinę przypomina piwa świąteczne) RIS, zadziwiająco intensywnie pachnący, bardzo pralinowo-tytoniowy. Przeszkadza charakterystyczna żelazista nuta chmielowa i nieco rzadka konsystencja.
Ps.
Data przydatności do spożycia do października 2024 sugeruje, że piwo spędziło "na leżaku" półtora roku stąd zapewne pięknie ułożony alkohol i nuty porto, rodzynek.

dambor (349) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 23, 2016
Pours pitch black with medium head. Aroma: dominating dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee. Taste: very heavy on the dark roasted malt side, followed by coffee and bitter chocolate. Maybe a touch of honey, but countered very well with long and hoppy finish. ABV well hidden. Apart the clear roasted malt dominance the beer is pretty smooth and drinkable.

This dark beer stout is everything you need for the price and the taste. The light burnt caramel with a slow filling wooden taste makes this beer top in its category. Enjoy this anywhere, anytime! Cheers!

bastarda (382) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAR 6, 2016
@BKL; deliciously rich aroma of candied walnuts, lots of dark chocolate, dark fruits, dark and moist cake, rum raisins; silky, velvety mouthfeel but the high abv kind of burning away all but the coffee and roast notes. Could have been quite as rich but more complex with a slightly lower abv.
