King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 10, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2015 Pitch black color with light to medium brown foam. The smell is intensely coffee like with some roasted malt aromas and a decent fruitiness. The taste is coffeeish at first, with a lot of dark chocolate taste afterwards. There are little sweetish licorice notes there as well. The aftertaste is quite dry but very smooth. I don?t love the taste but I like the aftertaste, even though I don?t like coffee. This beer isn’t far from some imperial stouts.

Flaska. Svart öl med ett gediget beigt skum. Dofter av kaffe, choklad och trä. Smakinslag av soja, choklad, smör och rostad malt. Mjuk munkänsla, medelbeska, lätt sälta i avslutningen. Mycket trevlig.

badhack (534) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Pours nearly black. However palate is light, a small amount of smoke. Dark chocolate and dark malt dominates. It was served very cold. After warning I noticed a lot of honey on the nose and tongue.

Bottled (thanks Bov!). Deep rubyish brown/close to black colour, mediumsized brown creamy head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, slightly roasted malts and some spicyness. Flavour is smoked wood, some caramel malts and yeast. A mild, but quite wellbalanced brew.

thewolf (12136) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Løgismose, Cph.
Pours almost black; only some slight brown edges. A great, large, creamy, cappucino head. Aroma is sweet, some Belgian sugars, lots of roasted malts and chocolate. A light ashy note as well. Medium, pcrickly carbonation, good dry mouthfeel. Flavour is relatively sweet at first, some caramel and milky chocolate. But the finish is really nice, lots of darker chocolate, roasted malts and a long, lingering dry note with fresh ground coffee. Very nice.
