Procent (230) - POLAND - JAN 22, 2015
W aromacie uderza bardzo mocna kawa, świeżo zmielone ziarna, bardzo intensywna, drugie w kolejności są papryczki chili nadające ostrości, w tle gdzieś lekka wanilia. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piana znikoma. W smaku także kawa, niesamowicie intensywna, świeża, do tego mocniej niż w aromacie chili, ale jedynie podkreślające ostrość, smak, a nie narzucające się, jak np. w serii AB: z Brewdoga. W tle także paloność, wanilia, ogólnie słodycz. Piwo jest bardzo dobrze zbalansowane, goryczka średnia, dużo ciała, konsystencja jest gęsta, ziarnista, niczym gęste kakao. Odczucie w ustach to zdecydowanie najmocniejsza strona tej kompozycji. Dobre rzemiosło, ciekawe doświadczenie.

visionthing (3116) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2015
On tap at Schouskjelleren, Oslo. Pretty much black body, at least that’s what it looks like in the basement. Beige head. Lovely complex aroma with vanilla, roasted malt, cocoa and hints of coffee, toffee and more chocolate. Sweet and extremely flavourful with nice roasty notes, hints of wood snd vanilla and a certain chili sting in the end. Well balanced, smooth and simply delicious!

Craft Islington. Keg. Opaque black beer, small tan head. Palate is viscous but with good fine carbonation. Mild emulsion paint esters. Rich dark malts. Spicy mid but the heat doesn’t linger. Touches of dark chocolate and coffee. Smooth finish. A mild repeat of the spice on the linger. It’s pretty drinkable for a 15% beer but other than that the top 50 status of this one is beyond me, the volume is turned up to 11 but it’s straight 3 chord progression playing!

Aroma a chocolate a la taza, y chile seco.En boca se nota el cacao y final a chile sin llegar a picar al acabar el trago se queda en boca el aroma a café. No se aprecia el sabor a alcohol a pesar de su graduación. Excelente.

Keg at Craft Islington. Boozy. Surprisingly ok to drink. Aroma is vanilla, dark fruit, chocolate, booze. Taste leaves a bit of a burn. Cola. Thick and smooth. Nice stuff. Feel the rum a bit further down.

rouhlas (478) - GREECE - JAN 15, 2015
Rate No 400. 355ml bottle at home, bought from the Hoppy Pub, Thessaloniki. Pitch black color with nice small brown head. Aroma is roasted malty, chocolate, cocoa, dark fruits, spicy, light vanilla, wood, light herbal, light alcoholic. Taste is sweet and bitter like the aroma with the addition of coffee. Full body almost creamy with sot carbonation with bitter burning spicy aftertaste.

Color negro profundo, con una espuma color marrón, flojo. En armoa es una autentica locura, café del bueno, chocolate, licor, vainilla. En boca es un bombón de licor, cafe, paladar sedoso y pleno. Una gozada!

Zakoon (107) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours pitch black with a thin brown head. Aroma is amazing with chocolate, vanilla, some wood and coffee. Flavour is medium sweet, body is full, texture is oily, carbonation soft and the finish is not as overwhelming as expected but very nice, some alcohol, coffee, vanilla, chocolate and a tiny chili kick at the very end. I’m glad I’ve got more bottles.

Several times, both in the bottle & on-tap.

Pours a dark brown, mocha head, thin ring. Nose is chocolate, chilies, light sweetness, oak, smooth booze. Flavor is a nice mix of sweetness, light spice/chili, oak. Full body, creamy, smooth finish.
