A: Appropriately, the beer pours black in color. It also has no head, but I guess I’m not surprised. S: Doesn’t smell anywhere near as offensive as I feared. Booze, certainly, but it’s mostly just roasted malts. There is a hint of ash and burnt sugar, maybe some licorice, too. T: Although the aroma wasn’t too bad, the flavor is quite another story. Lots of tar flavor accompanied by sugar. There is more tar and asphalt, followed by booze. A very intense licorice flavor, almost like anise extract. A bit of burnt sugar and prunes. M: Medium to full bodied with very low carbonation. O: The aroma was pleasantly surprising, but the flavor was just unfortunate.

KombatAle (77) - New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
37.5 cl bottle Black, brown small foam. Spicy roasty aroma. Full palate, oily texture, too extreme taste in the way of spicy black pepper and roasted malts, a lot of alchool, harsh! difficult to drink...

harbert (98) - leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2014
Veel koffie en geroosterd mout in de geur. Smaak zet zoet in met caramel en verwarmende alcohol die in balans gebracht wordt door de bittere nasmaak met zoet-bittere chocolade.

AgentAle (425) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Aroma is a very rich one of deep maltiness, mocha, chocolate, fig, espresso and black licorice. Taste is extremely rich maltiness with deep caramel and slight smokiness. Very very nice bitterness to pair. Body is jet black with a nice thick creamy head that retains well.

Strong coffee smell, not really my thing. Looks great, nice and dark. Tastes of nice chocolate and very much coffee at first.

Yorker (993) - Herning, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2014
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a dark tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are liquorice, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, alcohol, and hops - with a bitter and alcoholic finish.

cstuartj (930) - Washington, USA - MAR 12, 2014
On tap. Pours oily pitch black no head, tiny lacing. Mind blowing amazing nose, complex dark fruits, alcohol, coffee, dried cherries, and more. Taste is crazy complex, heavy, fruity, dark. Finish is long and lovely. Great beer.

MattiasA (622) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2014
Backlog. Intense with strong alcohol-reminiscent aromas pounding you straight away, followed up by dark-malt aromas, brown sugar, dark bread, chocolate and caramel. Matched with licorice and a hint of smoke.
