Pours deep mahogany into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention recedes to pancake surface leaving sheet lacing. Dark carmel and chocolate aromas. Medium to thick with chocolate, dark caramel and espresso front to back.

Ed5388 (2618) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 24, 2013
750ml bottle (2012) from Crossroads Spirits. Bought as a Christmas beer to share with my squad (Bob F., Shawn B., Dave M., and the rest were no shows!) the morning of Christmas Eve after work. Pours a rich dark brown/almost black color with a small creamy dark chocolate head. Aroma of smoke, dark chocolate, roasted malt, mild spice, and caramel. Taste of rust, burnt toast, dark chocolate, espresso grounds, grapefruit zest, nutshells, light spice, and a hint boozy vanilla.

HenrikSoegaard (11863) - Randers, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle. Creamy light Brown excellent mostly lasting head. Black colour. Heavy malty aroma. Roast. Heavy bitter roasted flavor. Alas slightly unbalanced. Heavy bitter moderate finish. creamy palate. A little disapointing.

Stuu666 (7329) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle at Craig’s tasting. Huge coffee roast, too much coffee, bitter and harsh, not a fan.

Lonick (792) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Big/huge coffee on the nose. Quite a burned taste with coffee to the fore, too much coffee for my liking. Some pepper and spices but not enough to add some balance

McNeillR (1834) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Firmly dark black with soft beige head. Really gritty seasoned nose, black peppercorn husks and a clean percolated roastedness. I can’t tell if the puckering liquorice/oily hop combo I’m really enjoying because it tastes nice or because the clear hop burn is carrying the sticky liquorice goop through. Spicey, wee bit of a booze burn but looses pace in the last few yards. Smokiness comes through more after a few sips, but I didn’t expect to have to layer this up to get the full impact. Bottle, Black Friday Tasting

Pitch black, lasting dark brown head, beautiful. Chocolate, thick, coffee, Ash, tobacco. Medium bitter, thick creamy chocolate body, herbal ending. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. Good full body. Very nice. (75cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

5lickv1c (113) - DENMARK - DEC 15, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 One year old on tap at mikkeller and friends. Good aromas of coffee, chocolate and sweet almonds. Very full bodied beer with a nice sweetness and a lot of complex flavors. Much superior to this years version on bottle but that is of course to be expected.

Melker (244) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 6, 2013
Almost black beer with a nice mocha head. Plain milk chocolate aroma, maybe just a little bit roasted and some christmas spices but not much at all. Dry taste, ends with some sourness. Medium/thin body.
