Pitch black pour with lots of lacing. Nice aroma of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Initial flavour is milk chocolate with some coffee before spices and a slight sourness takes over. A nice, complex Christmas stout I’d try again!

karpik (572) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Not intense aroma of chocolate and some coffee, boozy, solvent. Pours black with very nice tan head. Taste is dry, booze and some solvent are too sharp. Some coffee and chocolate in the background. Overall disappointing.

TheFoamhead (260) - Vught, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2015
One of the blackes blacks I’ve ever seen in a glass - no light getting through the liquid... The aroma is milk chocolate, toffee, dried raisins and figues. The taste on the other side is the beery equivalent to an perfectly served italian espresso. Very nice x-mas ale

Bien noire .. Amère ... Pas trop gourmand, pas très accueillante ... Arôme chocolat discret, pas beaucoup de café, je ne sais pas trop quoi en penser au final ... C’est pas mal, mais ce n’est pas à la hauteur de la promesse rigolote de son étiquette !

rekvium (412) - Odense C, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2015
2008 bottle, thanks a lot Scheffel! Pours pitch black with an off white head. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet candy, vanilla, brown sugar, melasses, dark chocolate, notes of coffee. Taste is thinner than the aroma indicates, light roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, sweet finish. Doesn’t seem old at all.
