RexTalionis (2337) - FINLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Bottled. Pours black in color with a tan head. Roasted coffee, dark chocolatey notes, sweetish syrup and some wooden notes in aroma. Quite smooth even if sligthly thick mouthfeel and feels a bit raw. Coffee liqour, burnt wood, roasted malty notes in taste. A bit harsh though on the whole. Sweet sugary notes, some coffee and wood in finish.

Fletchwadd (48) - Riverview, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Pours out super dark almost black leaving dark tan head. Aroma is of a roasted malt and coco. Taste is of a coffee and leaving almost a tangy aftertaste. Decent brew

lusikka (5955) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, cream and some berries. Flavour of roasted malts, red berries, some herbal bitterness and yeast. Some honey-like sweetness as well. Medium bodied, thin but smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and slightly roasty.

BrewBoxer (1881) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle. Pours a dark black color with a huge head that fades over time and lasts with a nice light coffee color. Taste is chocolate, coffee notes. Crisp and slight hoppy like a porter but definitely a stout at the finish. Pretty goo surprisingly but I dont get the 99 rating as well

ThreeCats (554) - ISRAEL - JUN 6, 2014
Black, with a nice big mocha head. Aroma of roast, bitter chocolate, and some raisins. Taste roasty, medium bodied, with a sweet mid-palate, and a dry ending. Hides the alcohol really well. Nice and easy drinking.

Another big thank you from whichever one of you fellows gave me this beer...truly the beer clouds my judgement! It pours a black color with a hint of red in the light. The head was massive with tan and orange being the predominant colors. The aroma was there, but was pretty weak with faint chocolates, plastic, cocoa beans and caramel/vanilla. The flavor is very malty though somewhat mild bodied. It has a very watery texture with little carbonation and hints of chocolate. This was lacking something...particularly mouthfeel if i had to really choose!
