A que bebi estava quase perfeita, a pesar de estar muito próxima da data de vencimento. Só faltou força no nariz.

I tried this beer a while ago before I was into craft beer - I didn’t like it. Now that I’m more enlightened, I am going to give it another try. A rating of 100 gives it a lot to live up to. The aroma is complex: boozy, spicy, hoppy, roasted malt and black licorice. Pours near black with a large tan imposing head that lasts forever. Flavor is bitterness up front, followed by the roasted malt that was present in the smell. Tastes more like a black IPA than an imperial stout. Reminds me of Firestone Walker Wookey Jack. Bitterness comes back in the aftertaste - I would like to know the IBU’s on this one. Palate is okay for a stout, but I have had way better. I like it better now than before, but in no way should it be rated 100. Too bitter, not a complex enough taste.

The hoppiest stout i've ever had. Burnt coffee and strong taste of alcohol. Nasty.....

The body is black as night, totally opaque with a highly carbonated cola-type head. Nose is smoky, with touches of coffee and chocolate to be had. Fairly crisp palette, and a wide-ranging flavor profile that exceeds that if the nose, with fruit notes and alcohol hotness present. Really solid stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A black beer with a large tan head. The aroma is roasted malts with a little dark chocolate. The flavor is the same with some black licorice too.

Jet black. Tan head. Coffee and chocolate nose. Flavor is very meaty. Coffee finish. Some dark chocolate. Smoke. Ash. Really good. Thick and viscous. Sugar coats your lips. Really enjoyed this.

kappldav123 (4577) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts intense malty, oily, earthy notes, hints of liquorice. Not too dry. Also hints of bitter chocolate. Finish well balanced, not alcoholic, warming-malty. A great beer!

Tulip glass. Mild odor of chocolate and malts. Beautiful beer, black as night with thick cottony head. Great creamy, hearty mouth feel. Excellent tasting, the coffee and chocolate balance this or nicely.

Lagerboy (1067) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
12 FL. OZ. bottle. Deep dark hueless brown, big foamy mocha head settles and rings. Pungent aroma of dark chocolate and burnt dark malt, a whiff of dark fruit. Sweet bitter smooth chocolate, robust dark roast, bitter coffee bean. Average carbonation, full bodied, moderately hopped. Intense and powerful yet ABV mostly hidden. Definitely a meal, and: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)
