cervmagpt (640) - PORTUGAL - FEB 15, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 16C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: predominant dark chocolate notes with a slight burnt character. some dark fruits present (raisins, dried plums), with a present alcoholic note. APPEARANCE: black color and opaque. average to moderately large, moussy, brown head with medium-low retention. some legging formation. TASTE: roasted malt flavour dominates with an almost burnt note. The malt is of dark chocolate with a moderately sweet background. low bitterness with a medium-sweet and roasted finish. PALATE: medium to medium-low body with moderate-low carbonation. no roasted malt astringency. low alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a very nice tropical stout with a strong roasted malt presence. this sample needs a bit more body.

wcejrowski (13) - Wasrsaw, POLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Barwa czarna, pływają jasne drobinki. Piana niska, o brązowej barwie, kremowej konsystencji, drobnoziarnista, oblepia szkło. Zapach gorzka czekolada, kawa, odrobina owoców i alkoholu w stylu wiśni w likierze. Smak nuty owocowe (wiśni, śliwki), oraz palony słód z odrobiną popiołu. Lekka kawa i czekolada. Spora goryczka o charakterze palonym.

martjoobolut (2800) - 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 (3155) - 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...
