Poured into pint glass from bottle. Pours a wonderful black. Small dark tan head. Thick lacing. Aroma was of roasted malt, basement. I did not get the coffee others picked up. I also saw a lower co2 than others. Bottom of bottle was thick in yeast. A bitter taste, medium. I picked up roasted malt, oats, with a long coffee, alcohol finish. Body was full, texture was oily. Nice very suprising and enjoyable. Good effort.

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.
