Short review due to rugby-related excitement/disappointment. Black, small white foamy head. Smell - smoke, chocolate. Body and cabonation are medium. Taste - more smoke and chocolate, semi-sweet, astringent finish. Good beer, enjoyed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a unknown-sized bottle @ Haandfest 2013. This is a near black one, no, letís call it black and it has a nice lacing brown top thatís leaving some islands floating on top of the beer. Lots if dark notes in the aroma. Itís coffee bitter and loaded with chocolate paper! There is even a little bit of licorice here as well. It has a light oily mouthfeel and a average prickling carbonation level. Nice roasted profile all over this. Dark coffee, burned to the max, I get more chocolate paper, a roasted acidity and dark burned cake. Itís leaving the mouth with a dry feeling. Lots of flavor, enjoyable. 25.05.2013

From bitter virtue. Not quite black with half finger tan head. Super roasty aroma, bit scared at this point. Very roasty flavor, slightly acidic, really smooth finish. Iím a bit love hate on this, hate it on the front of my tongue, love it on the back. Decent beer.

330ml bottle. Darkest brown shade with a light brown head. Powerful roasty aroma neutralised with something like a vanilla lightness. Taste opens with sweet milk chocolate notes before harsher roasted malt takes over. Finishes a bit dry. Very tasty and evidently well worked.
