COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The King of roastiness. Overwhelmingly bitter, hopped to the max and full of dark burnt roast grains. The bitterness can only balance the notes of dark chocolate, coffee and licorice that this massive 14% beer leaks out from its steady malt profile. Extreme as it gets.

koshack (167) - Gdańsk, POLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Piana drobna, brązowa, opadła zostawiając lekkie slady na szkle. Kolor ciemnobrązowy, prawie czarny. Nieprzejrzyste. W aromacie palone słody, lekko śliwkowe, likierowe. Czuć chmiel. W smaku ciemna czekolada, karmel, nuty pralinkowe. W drugiej nucie spora goryczka. Zarowno od alkoholu, jak i od chmielu, ale doskonale skomponowana. Czuć słodycz, ale nie przebija się na plan pierwszy. Im dłuzej się pije tym słodycz jest wyraźniejsza. Alkohol doskonale zamaskowany. Grzeje w ustach i przełyku, ale nie jest nieprzyjemny. Piwo gęste, mocne. Mimo swojej mocy, bardzo pijalne.

PapaVillum (494) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2014
330 ml, flaske, 14,0 % ABV, købt i Toft Vine på Bryggen i CPH City, 28. september 2014. Sort "olie" med moccafarvet skumtop på 1/2 cm's penge, som svinder stille ind til kant og overflade. "Sort" aroma af salmiak, kælder, krydderier, koriander, appelsin, blomme, alkohol. Rom. Aromaen er dejligt udefinérbar, idet den udvikler sig hele tiden. Smagen er uovertruffen. Salt, umami, bitter og sødme. Masser af bitterhed, som glider elegant ned i halsen. Men samtidig fyldt med krydret smag, som bare fuldender og runder hver lille sip på en vanvittig rar måde. Sticky konsistens og fantastisk karboneret. Kraftigt neddroslet uden at være for lidt. Den stille perle'n på tunge og i svælg. Stor og fyldig krop. Det går langsomt op for mig, at denne øl er så god, at det bliver umuligt for mig at skulle ændre/foreslå ændringer... "Hvad kunne gøre dette bryg bedre...?" Svaret er: intet! Italiensk og meravelioso!

Desverger (2266) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle from Voldby Købmandsgaard - pours black with thin tan head. Nice mix of both roasted (slightly burned) malts and fruity hoppy notes in the aroma and taste, chocolate, cocoa, liquorice, verging more sweet than bitter on the palate until the finish. Very nice brew.
