McTapps (6198) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - APR 13, 2015
Bottle from trade with Desverger - many thanks! The beer has got a deep black colour with a steady low head and smooth body. Aroma of hops and chocolate. Taste of roasted hops, chocolate, dark bread, herbs, oine and fruits. Hoppy-dry-roasty finish. Complex and very quaffable beer -loved it!

Japalo (1586) - DENMARK - APR 6, 2015
Tap@mikkeller Stefangade. One finger dark brown. Intense roasted piny herbal notes. Great mixture of hard roasted malt with coffee chocolate flavours. Astringent though. The malts!!!

Patrickctenchi (5445) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle: Black, with a creamy tan head. Licorice, chocolate, bread, citrus aroma. Bitter coffee malt, licorice, resin/grapefruit-peel taste. Quite bitter...with an underlying, over-ripe fruit aspect that detracts from the overall experience....starts to taste a bit "off" at finish.

Cunningham (6252) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2015
Black pour with a solid frothy beige head. Nice lacing. Coffee, overripe fruity, some alcohol and grapefruit hoppy aroma. Full body. tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Average to soft carbonation with a creamy texture. Coffee, chocolate, overripe fruity, mild resinous and grapefruit hoppy flavor. The overripe (almost rotten) fruity stuff were a bit disturbing.
[Bottle from Bottle Shop - Druid Street in London, England]

tomekk1978 (1164) - Ząbki, POLAND - FEB 28, 2015
Barwa i piana: barwa czarna, z rubinowymi prześwitami pod światło, wydaje się, zgaszona. Piana lekko zabarwiona (beżowa), średnio i grubo pęcherzykowa, obfita, dość trwała i oblepiająca szkło. Aromat: pusty... Jakieś nuty chmielowe (mocno) w tle, nieco ananasowe i serowe, kwaskowość, ciemne słody z przewagą czekolady oraz coraz wyraźniejszy alkohol. Do tego lukrecja i anyż. O co chodzi??? Smak: słodko - kwaskowy posmak, z przewagą ciemnych i palonych słodów. Występuje chmielowa kontra, ale nie może się przebić przez słód oraz alkohol. Goryczka i odczucie w ustach: niska do umiarkowanej goryczka (polono- alkoholowo- chmielowa), lekko drażniąca, ale raczej krótka zbalansowana słodyczą. Krągła pełnia, umiarkowane nasycenie. Nieco oleista konsystencja. Wytrawna oraz alkoholowa, rozgrzewająca przełyk (wręcz szczypiąca, podobnie do mięty) końcówka. Ktoś mi chyba podmienił piwo (zwłaszcza opierając się na ocenach na rb), bowiem jest to bodaj najsłabszy trunek od Mikkellera jaki miałem okazję próbować. Zgadza się jedynie barwa i piana, natomiast w aromacie i smaku wyraźnie brakuje chmielu. Jest on przykryty słodem, a na dodatek występuje tu dość agresywna nuta alkoholowa. Zdecydowanie nieudane piwo albo moja butelka trefna.

CanCrusher (817) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle 0,33L. Courtesy of Kita. Very dark, ruby brown, almost black colour with creamy, light brown head, that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, roasted malts and dark coffee. Taste is rich and bitter with touch of brandy and coffee. Medium to full body, dry texture and soft carbonation. Perfectly ballanced beer.
