Took forever too pour as the head kept piling up on me. Nice black color but lacked the body I would expect from the appearance. Too much carbonation which never really seems to settle down.Cloying bitterness. It’s a good thing this beer has an alternative use since I won’t be drinking it again.

Deep reddish brown, small brown head dissipates in about a minute. Smells roasty with sweet malt and stewed fruits. Cola and chocolate in the forefront, followed by grainy flavors, roasted nuts, coffee, an unappealing lactic sweetness, and ending on a buttery note (diacetyl?). Finishes with dark chocolate, fruit, almond, and a touch of copper. Altogether a pretty one-dimensional and average dark beer, okay but not memorable.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - OCT 7, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2004 Very dark with a small head, aroma of coffee grounds, a little metallic and smoky. Thin mouthfeel, some chocolate, coffee and vanilla notes, sweet, a little scorched like charcoal. Drinkable, but it seemed a bit washed out.

Pours black with tan head. Nose is smoky and reminds me of peat moss. Flavor is strange. Roasted chocolate malt. Thin body with little mouthfeel. Not a favorite.

Pours black with a creamy, tan head. The aroma is roast, chocolates and toffee. The flavor is cola, cherries, chocolates, but end a bit thin. The moouthfeel is light with soft carbonation and a slightly tart finish.

Bov (10485) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 30, 2008
pours a very dark brown colour with an elusive foam; aroma of caramel with strange vegetal notes; sweet and light-bodied with a solid carbonation; no bitterness and a short and quite watery caramelish aftertaste

Bottled@Björntasting. Deep rubyish black colour, not much head. Aroma is dark dry fruits, some malts and rather sweet notes. Flavour is syrup, some burnt notes as well as quite toffeeish.

BVery (7960) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 22, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle. Clear dark brown pour. Nice aroma of nut and maybe some very mild fig. Flat mouthfeel. Taste is dull - somewhat nutty. A disappointing finish after an optimistic nose.
