Idiosynkrasie (3641) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2012
750ml bottle. Opaque black with very small, brown, lasting, lacing head. Dark malty aroma with notes of roasted malt, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, coffee, additional overtones of floor or shoe polish and leather. Taste is similar, a constant battle between the heavy, sweet side, that is in trouble to establish itself, and the at last preponderant lighter, dry one.

Sample at SBWF 2012. Dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt. Also licorice and some spices. I liked this, complex beer with a lot of flavours. The body was full. A tasty collaboration.

Deep black with a very slight brown head. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, roast, and mild licorice and smokey notes. Very rich, coffee, chocolatey, slightly smokey tasting. Nice bitterness to go along with the richness and easy spiciness. Full bodied and smooth; booze well hidden.

Flavour is superb coffee, moccha, lots of great chocolate, hard roasted malts, firm burning pepper note that suits the beer really well, more chocolate, bitter finish. Fullbodied, soft mouthfeel. Great stuff.
