Bottle @ Beerfest Asia Singapore. Thick black (goes glug glug when poured) with lasting tan head. Inky aroma with iodine and major black molasses. Creamy soft and luscious yet remarkably drinkable and not too potent. Has notes of coffee and chocolate. The interplay between sweet and dry is gorgeous. Well made.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Black-colored with a light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roastiness, a bit of licorice notes and faint alcohol note. Bittersweet roasty flavor with coffee, some dark chocolate and a slightly bitter and slightly burnt finish. Medium-bodied. Nice, kind of a Stout-ish Schwarzbier.

Big thanks to Allen for this one. Bottle looks great, as well as the beer in the glass. Deep black, small creamy head. Smoky aroma. Starts strong-malty, modest dry, fine smoky. Finish a little bit sweeter, prickly, wonderful balanced. Very drinkable and good beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pitch black beer with a strong wispy light brown head. The aroma is sweetly roasted with a gentle hint of bitterness. The flavour is mildly malty and roasted coffee. Overall a nice malty roasted dark beer.
