foxo82 (697) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2013
On tap at Little Delirium, Brussels. Black with a thick white top. Complex aroma of sweet fruitcake, grassy malt, coffee and liquorice. Taste initially malty, giving way to bittersweet intense coffee. Very long bitter finish - perhaps too much so for my tastes but I still really like this, despite it being so hard to drink.

Appearance: Black color with a big creamy beige head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Dark malt, chocolate, fruity and some spices.
Palate: Thick oily body. Slightly sweet, and a rich bitterness. Soft carbonation.
Taste: Really complex flavor. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, fruity and spicy.

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2013
On Tap, Brew Dog, Newcastle. Dark brooding looks with a reserved tan crown. Enticing nose of dark choc and dark fruits, alongside some coffee and xmas-cake notes. Similar themes unfolded flavour wise,...rich and luxuriant, with roast and hop bitterness merging to great effect. Gently warming booze hit. Great stuff, a top class christmas beer..

stevencon (451) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Thanks jbruner. Very dark black pour dark tan head. Boozy roast coconut and wood. Taste a bit astringent and effervescent. Finishes a bit sour like a porter.

jbruner (2327) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2013
Pours an opaque brownish-black from the bottle with thin tan cap of of lacy head, moderate lacing. Aroma of vanilla, coffee, a bit of booze and chocolate. Taste is all of that with a hint of astringency and spice. Solid bitter finish and bubbly on the tongue, good stuff, but a bit weird.

BenH (2343) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2013
Tap at BD. Black with tan head. Ashy roasty aroma with licorice and chocolate. Similar taste with some soapy hops. A little foamy and thin. Decent

1FastSTi (3336) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Black body with a dark tan head. Aroma is quite hoppy with a light nutty quality. The flavor is a hoppy porter. Bright and piney. Medium full body. Easy drinking.
