yourilevesque (1120) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2016
Je verse dans mon verre ballon ce liquide parfaitement noir qui coule lourdement en formant une tête d’un brun obscur me laissant anticiper une forte torréfaction. Cette tête fond heureusement rapidement, faute de quoi le liquide aurait été inaccessible. Des arômes végétales, de chocolat noir et amer, d’épices et de chipotle. Rares sont le bière noires aussi faibles en alcool qui présentent tant de rondeur et de complexité. Une pétillance en bouche qui atténue un corps généreux. Saveurs sèches très amères, encore une fois très herbacées sur fond de cacao poudreux et de piment presque fumé, à la manière du chipotle. Belle prolongation de l’arrière-goût malgré une attaque brusque et fugace telle un feu de paille. Somme toute une bière qui se boit très bien malgré son intensité et un profil aromatique particulier.

Homer321 (3844) - Melboring, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2016
Bottle to glass. Nose is very earthy. Dirty. Light vegetable. Nearly black with light brown head. Taste is minty, vanilla, cocoa. Lots going on but it doesn’t seem to come together well. Muddy.

onceblind (6696) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2016
Inky black pour with a thin tan head. Amazing nose of sour tart notes with roasty earthy cocoa notes, with some coffee and perhaps some boysenberry. Lovely flavor with some sour tones throughout and some light boysenberry/or blackberry tones, some coffee, tartness, lots of roasty stout tones, and a tart berry finish with a little coffee..just a little. Really nice.

allanmb (102) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Pours black with good beige head. Aroma dominated by chocolate and a touch of Berry fruits. Taste is strong chocolate and coffee, nice bitter finish with a bit of heat which grows sip on sip. Great mouth feel forth the low ish abv

spacecube (1562) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016
330ml bottle, pours dark with a dark foamy head. Aroma is rich chocolate malt, wood smoke, chilli, zesty orange. Full bodied with a creamy texture, lightly sweet to start with balance coming from the smoke, finish ends with chilli heat, orange peel zest and mild bitterness. Carbonation is soft to spritzy. Excellent.

juffage (171) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2016
Bottle from work. This was a good one. Definitely spicy, semi lively Belgian style head, smokey, tar, peated leather, leafy and peppery but well balanced. Nothing going too extreme.

beertholomeus (1576) - California, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Pours black with a tan head. Licorice, black bean, cinnamon, chocolate, and spice aroma. Black bean, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, licorice, spice, chili and maybe avocado leaf (never had to compare) flavors. Medium full body and moderate carbonation. Black bean, chocolate and spice finish. Very weird.

Acid303 (654) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAR 8, 2016
33cl bottle, served in tulip glass. Pitch black colour with nice tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, wood, coffee and dark fruits. The flavour is the same with spices, so well balanced, although it is very difficult to guess at first that there’s chili in there. After a few minutes, it is possible to get something (very subtle). The chocolate dominates. The aftertaste is dry with good retention of the spices and a slight chili touch. Full mouthfeel, perfect carbonation. Great brew.
