Fritz123 (1274) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2015
Bottle shared with Dan and Edgar at the Pig. The snifter pour was dark black with a soft tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate, some dark fruits like prunes and raisins, slight Belgian yeast aromas, and hint of vanilla. The taste was similar with the dark fruits, dark chocolate, and Belgian candied sugars. Sweet finish with dark fruits and roasted malts. Good balance, great after a pulled pork sandwich. A nice full bodied sipper.

Old rating. Dark brown pour. Caramel, rosty nutty malts, some chocolate, some spice, earthy hops. All over the place, but tasty.

RickTheRick (550) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2015
Une mousse beige titanesque se dresse sur le dessus d’une bière d’un noir sans équivoque. Des arômes sucrées de pâte à biscuits et de chocolat explosent au nez, des effluves mentholés apparaissent également, à ma grande surprise. Chocolat, café, malt rôti sont les principaux acteurs en bouche, le tout se mélangeant dans une carbonatation très souple et se terminant dans une amertume bien sentie. Un peu unidimensionnelle, mais très efficace.

Bacterial (1981) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Pour from a bomber. Dark black pour with a nice tan head. Nose is sweet roasted malt with a hint of toasted nut. Soft carbonation while coating everything in your mouth. Nice earthy hops with big dose of roasted malt and bitter chocolate. Really nice.

wihlan (390) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2015
Flaska från systemet - mörk som natten men ljust skum, nästan beigt. Kraftig maltig arom med lite inslag av kaffe. Silkeslen i munnen, brända toner och inslag av råsocker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dambor (130) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2015
Pours pitch black with a beautiful head, leaving a nice lacing. Aroma: massive chocolote and coffee, followed by pleasant toast aroma, dark fruit and of course roast aroma. Taste: chocolate, coffee, pleasant hoppy bitterness in the palate, followed by a pleasant alcohol warming. This beer is thick and complex, but at the same time creamy and very drinkable. Well hidden ABV.
