330 ml bb 25.09.16. Shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Almost black body, with a small, dense, creamy, dark beige head.
Aroma of espresso, milk chocolate, caramel, liquorice, some vanilla, some dark fruits.
Tastes of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, liquorice, toast, some wood, subtle dark fruits.
Medium, creamy mouhfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes medium roasty-bitter, medium dry, a bit wooden, with coffee, liquorice, cocoa powder, some dark chocolate, some toast.

Very nice. Especially the nose is lovely, with a perfect balance between roasty and sweet notes. Taste is a bit lighter, while also really nice and also quite easy for the style. Overall a pleasant surprise, very enjoyable stuff.

CObiased (331) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2016
11.2oz bottle - pours a watery midnight black and a thin brown head. A yummy aroma of dark chocolate, coffee and charcoal. A thin mouthful delivers dry roasty barley, mocha and and a short taste of char.

Had a bottle, pours black brownish, light nose of burnt cocoa. Pretty bland in mouth, mild cocoa and coffee. Not sweet. No personality, no one needs to drink this...
