Bottle, thanks to Jeffo, 08/04/2013. Black pour, fine espresso cream head, dies to a haze on the surface and then to stillness. Aroma is rich chocolate cake, touch of vanilla and dark berries, long smooth roast coffee finish, fairly dark and bitter. Taste is dark chocolate, cocoa nut, sweet dark fruit, licorice, lingering coffee and bitterness. Thick body, but needs a bit more heft (ie carbonation) to carry everything. Brings me back, definitely classic Menno brew but some of the typical flaws as well. Still, can’t complain too much, fairly tasty.

Black color with small beige creamy head. Quite strong and nice aroma of roasted malts and coffee, strong yeast too, some cardboard. Full bodied, with good flavor of roasted malts, moderate sweetness, some coffee, light leather, correct bitterness.
Many elements here, very good.

Bottle. Aroma is huge roast, liquorice, burned bread, chocolate, caramel and more. Flavour is huge roasty malt bitterness, liquorice, coffee, molasses and more. Palate could use more body imho to carry the hefty flavours but still awesome.

Bottle, courtesy of Kermis, @ Rampkrot tasting. Pours a pitch black beer with a small short lasting tanned head. Aroma of coffee, licorice, molasses and roast. Oily texture, deep dark flavor of coffee and chocolate with a slight hint of vanilla. Quite good actually.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Thx to Kermis @ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 75 cl. Bottle sampled. Nr. 181. Black, looks flat, almost no tanned head. Nose is roasted, mellow mocha, touch vinous, chocolate, hint dark fruits & liquorish,… Taste is bitter roast, slick vinous, bitter chocolate, liquorish, sugar thick, bitter herbs, quite simple, pure coffee, flat coffee, hint sour, bitter finish, quite simple, coffee ground,… Flat, meh. Below par, flat messy RIS, heavily overpriced. Glad to try one of their beers but this is not worth it.
