Fløska. Pitch black colour with a big creamish dark brown head. Aroma has deep roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, it’s vinious and with red wine woody notes. Good mouthfeel. The flavour is strong on roasted malt along with chocolate and coffee, wood, alcohol and red wine (tannins)indeed, which gives a mild tart touch towards the very roasty malty chocolate coffee alcohol well lasting finish.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2010
From bottle @ 2nd BBF. Almost black and opague. Chocolate and soy sauce overshadow the vinous notes in the aroma. The wine-like barrel notes are stronger in the flavor. Partly hidden soy sauce in the aftertaste. Good, but the balance could be better.

Bov (9245) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 21, 2012
from Erzbierschof - opaque black beer with no foam escaping from the horizon of the black hole (may this contradict Hawking’s theory ?); fairly woody aroma with strong notes of roasted chocolate, vanilla and black cherries; pretty sweet, full-bodied and slightly dry; a well-present bitterness, long woody and roasted coffeish finish
