martjoobolut (2102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle (from Saveur Biere). Pours black with light brown head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is roast, cherry. acidic, acetone, corked wine. Flavor is roast, malt, dark chocolate, roast, cherry-cellary, maybe acetone, but not acidic. Alcohol is well covered. Overall: an off bottle maybe, really confusing beer. One of the very rare cases where aroma and flavor are completely different. Aroma is scary, like it will be poison, but the flavor and palate are surprisingly good.

ShivanDragon (2740) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2016
volgens mij van een webshopje gescoord, zwart met schuimige bruine kraag. aroma van mouten, zoet, chocolade.... ... smaken zijn matig/redelijk zoet, matig bitter, zwak fruitig, redelijk moutig, donkere chocolade, vanille, lichte koffie, romig en glad van textuur, lage co2, lange prettige en wat zoete afdronk. ik moet erkennen ik ben echt onder de indruk van dit bier.... en al helemaal als je er niets van verwacht.... gewoon prima...

StefanSD (2244) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Bottled bomber. Blackish pour with a big sudsy tan head that has good retention. The aroma is blackened grains, anise, mocha and plums. The taste features sweet dried dark fruits, raisins dates and plums, with a licorice loaded malt base. Palate is full. Finishes long and sweet, Overall: Very nice stuff

Just ordered 4 beers at a bar in SL. Guy thinks I’m weird. Anyway..Out of a bottle in Galle, SL. Smells of malt, chocolate, boozey, but light. Pours very dark with a thin head. Taste is malty, chocolate, some fruit. Delicious and v. Easy to drink. I’d drink this stuff all the time.

Large can served in a Belgian snifter after some time for warming. Pours thick and essentially black with a moderate size, semi-durable tan head. The glass gets coated with lacing each time its tipped but the lacing doesn’t stick to the glass/ . The aroma is relatively strong and fruity, with some alcohol esters and a hint of coffee. The flavor is moderately strong and surprisingly sweet. Mainly dark roasted malts with no char or burnt grain notes. Subtle hints of coffee and dark fruits. Smooth, medium-full body with appropriate carbonation. Overall: I drank this beer somewhat frequently when it first came to the US. It was a bargain at the time and, of course, quite good. Now it tastes sweeter than I remember and not quite as good but plenty good enough to recommend. Well hidden alcohol.

coachd (434) - Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Smells of milk chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit and booze. A complex albeit a little too light aroma. Pitch black color with an abundance of mocha colored foam. Flavor is very roasty with some dark fruit like a cross between a quad and an imperial stout. Very drinkable, only a hint of booze in the aftertaste. Good palate but could be thicker. A little overrated but worth drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
