Arek (764) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - DEC 30, 2015
Tap 0.3 l, 4hops, Wrocław, Poland.
Czarne piwo z beżową, puszystą, obfitą i sztywną pianą oraz intensywnym, owocowym, winnym aromatem. W smaku gęste i ostre, początkowo słodkawe i zdecydowanie owocowe, następnie likierowe, potem mocno kawowe z rozgrzewającym, lekko gorzkawym i trochę alkoholowym finiszem.

szymonskc (250) - Skórcz, POLAND - DEC 27, 2015
Zapach bardzo intensywny, mocna, czarna kawa, gorzka czekolada, kakao, czekoladki śliwkowe, wszystko zmieszane z alkoholem. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana beżowa, bardzo wysoka, drobna i bardzo trwała, pięknie zdobi szkło, zostaje na nim bardzo długo po wypiciu. W smaku bardzo intensywna słodycz, wręcz kwaskowość szybko kontrowana przez gorzkość palonej kawy. Idealny balans między słodkością, a gorzkością. W tle można wyczuć również śliwki czy gorzką czekoladę. Piwo jest kremowe, bardzo gęste, sycące. Goryczka wysoka, alkohol znakomicie ukryty, wyczuwalny dopiero po przełknięciu w sposób rozgrzewania. Posmak palonej kawy dosyć długo pozostaje w ustach. Nasycenie niskie. Piwo wybitne.

aleksander9 (1050) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2015
Pitch black with redhead. Licorice, pepper, espresso bean, strong spicy alcohol and quenched fist. Dry, herbal, pepper, alcohol, coffee beans, shot and lingering dry weed. Overall: death metal!!!

Bold. Raspberry and plum. Thicker bubble than thought. Espresso-like finish. And.... Gives a thick booze

mariuspoenari (406) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Perfect pour - pitch black, huge thick head the color of strong espresso. Smells of roasted malts and lactose, dark chocolate and dark cherries. The taste is unbalanced - very sweet at first, then roasty bitter and with the alcohol overwhelming the mouth a bit. Very alcohol-heavy aftertaste.

Manslow (749) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 5, 2015
Butelka 0,375l Bardzo ciemny kolor, piana solidna. Aromat niebiański składa się z kawy, czekolady, suszonych owoców z przewagą śliwek i palonych słodów. Smak suszonych owoców ,kawy i czekolady wszystko to przykrywa potężny alkohol, który jest mocno ukryty i tylko po spłynięciu do żołądka czuć jego rozgrzewającą moc. Słodycz cały czas wyczuwalna razem z goryczką. Piwo genialne.

willisread (1550) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 2, 2015
Small glass shared at Mikkeller Tokyo. Pitch black with a tiny bit of brown head that dissipates fairly quickly. Coffee, dark chocolate, prune, figs and raisin on the nose. Body is lighter than expected for the abv, with a nice dry, oaky character. As big as this beer is, the balance is there, especially if you let it sit for an hour or 2. Sweet on the palate with some roasted bitterness alongside some bourbon-like alcohol notes. Coats the palate. The finish lasts days, coating the throat with chocolate, dark fruit and roasted coffee with a nice warming quality. A really well-done beer that is surprisingly drinkable with friends.
