3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark black on the pour. Almost a morning coffee roasty aroma. Hints of dark chocolate and hazelnut with a light bitter and hoppy taste that finishes smoothly on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Beer temple. Small sample. The aroma has strong hazulnuts, chocolate, smooth coffee. Black coloured beer with a beautiful medium, brown head. The taste is light bitter, has moderate sweetness, chocolate, hazelnuts, coffee. Very creamy, velvety mouthfeel. Nice one, but the hazelnuts are a bit too overpowering for me.

650ml bottle. Jet black colour with average, thick, creamy, mostly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Sweet-ish, nuttily and chocolately, dark malty aroma, notes of white coffee, vanilla, a touch of roasted nuts. Taste is dry, nuttily, slightly roasty dark malty, hints of roasted nuts, white coffee, a touch of vanilla. Stops right before reaching the artificial marshmallow and hundreds and thousands regions.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. It pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is very sweet with huge vanilla and chocolate ice cream. The flavor has a little burnt marshmallow, vanilla and dark chocolate. Lots of burnt character here. Maybe some graham cracker too. Like an overdone smores, only not as sweet. The bitterness and roast mingle and last in the finish. Moutjfeel is medium and fairly creamy. Decent.

From the bottle at a beer tasting swim party. One of the best of the night. Lots of roasted and nutty flavors on this black pour.

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle, San Diego. TREMENDOUS aroma, extremely sweet chocolate aroma, reminiscent of Italian chocolate liqueur candies or something, not sure how else to describe it. This beer smells like the luxuriant aroma of a $150,000 BMW supercar, nice and malty. Flavor doesn’t hold up, just a flat stout with hints of chocolate and coffee.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus. Opaque black color, huge fluffy off-white to beige head. Aroma is malts, lightly milk chocolate, lightly (Dutch) "hopjesvla". Taste malts, again milk chocolate and hopjesvla (which I hate) and decently bitter. Decent body and carbonation. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beige brown head. Black beer.
Aroma of dog food, choco malts, nuts and some coffee and chocolate tints.
Flavour is malt roast, chocolate, coffee, nuts, bitters...
Aftertaste is dry, roasty, coffee and chocolate with a nutty edge...
Fully carbonated which causes a foamy overlead in your mouth... Good medium bodied.
