No head and all almost. Coffee and some roasted flavor, a little tiny bit of sourness. Smooth as silk very easy to drink for the strength and bigness. Good. Serving:Bottle

PotjeBier (1653) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2014
On tap @ In De Wildeman. Almost black color. Short light beige head. Aroma’s: roasted malts, cola. Retronasal there’s lots of chocolate, roasted malt, berries/cherries (dark red fruit), something undefinable ??? Flavor is moderate sweet, chocolate, light mocha. Body is medium to full. Velvetty mouthfeel. Finishes with lots of roast and moderate bitter. Not always a fan of berries/cherries flavor in dark beer but this was well done.

Poured deep dark brown with a dense beige head. Aroma of alcohol soaked raisins, roast malt and dark chocolate. Full body, flavour much as the aroma, fudge and lots of berries.

Marheb (2020) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
Grosse mélasse chocolatée et onctueuse qui cache très bien son alcool. Une infusion houblonnée ajoute également de la complexité et une finale fruitée.

douglas88 (5934) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2014
500 ml bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a pitch black color with a medium beige head. A dark malty nose, chocolates, anise, some rye. The flavor is wonderful: dark German rye bread, some chocolate, dark fruit, smoke, spicy at times, loads of bitter dark chocolate. Home run! There is a load of barrel character in this really (is it BA?). Sweet, mellow round flavors. Very good.

MadRobin (1900) - Silver Spring, USA - JUL 28, 2014
On tap at Frisco Tap House & Brewery in Columbia, MD. Opaque, near black with a thin light tan head and excellent lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malt, licorice, toffee and rye spiciness. Taste of roasted malt, dark fruit, charcoal, vanilla, sweet mocha, licorice and pumpernickel. Medium body and medium/high carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Storm_Warning (77) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Well this is an incredible beer! The aroma is sweet and spicy, fruity and of chocolate. Pours as a thick black vessel with a cascading yet restrained brown sugar coloured head which dissipates to a thin ring around the glass. Tastes sweet and peppery with full chocolate malt character, smooth earthy hop notes and a lasting rich fruity malt finish. Full bodied with a thick oily texture that makes this like velvet on the tongue. Overall this is a truly decadent beer, rich and smooth and very complex, incredible! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
