RexTalionis (2347) - FINLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle 65 cl, BBE 01/2014. Pours black in color with a creamy tan head. Like pouring used engine oil. Roasted malts, cocoa powder, bitter chocolate, dry wood and espresso notes in aroma. Nice combination here so far. Quite dry in mouthfeel. Coffee, loads of coffee notes actually, dark and bitter chocolate as well in taste. A brew that is very rich in both aroma and flavor. A bit of smoky notes appears in taste later on, but still the coffee and bitter chocolate notes are dominating here. Roasted malty and smoky chocolatey finish. This was a real treat, loaded with rich flavors all the way.

teddybeer (2165) - Madrid, SPAIN - OCT 4, 2013
On tap @ Animal. Black colour with a creamy, dense and good lasting tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malts with notes of coffee and licorice. Flavor is toasted malts, light wood and ash with notes of licorice, coffee and black chocolate. The final has a good bodyness with notes of coffee and dry sensation.

Beese (1526) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Draft at the Rogue Hop Farms in Independence, OR on 1 June 2013. Poured a dark, dark ruby with a dense tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, dark chocolate and black cherries. Strong coffee flavour with molasses, dark fruit and just a hint of smoked malts. Finishes with burnt malts, espresso and nuttiness. Good stuff.

oh6gdx (20238) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Bottled. More or less black colour with a small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, mild coffee, some slight ashes as well as some toffee and sweet maltiness. Flavour is roasted malts, quite big on the bitter notes, mild ashes as well as some sweet malts to it. Quite nice bitter finish. Not your typical Schwarzbier, but still a pleasant brew.

Slubgob (182) - West Hartford, USA - SEP 6, 2013
Tap into mug. Inn black, thin tan head - looks for all the world like a stout. Mugs suck for nose, but I get a faint hint of smoke? Shockingly light in the mouth, but it is a lager, right? Easy up front, porter like chocolate and roast notes in the middle carry through to a dry cocoa finish with a bit of minerality like I expect in some dry white wines. Interesting and drinkable hybrid of styles - lager upfront, porter in the back. A beer mullet?

BoostIPA (1198) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Pours a thick looking robust black with a tan head. Holy Jeebus, this is not what I expected. Aromas of roast and coffee. Taste is bitter coffee, heavy on the roast with a massive finish. This is 5% alcohol? Well, fuck me. This is a masterpiece for such a low ABV. Blown away.

Poured from the tap. Black with minimal beige head. Coffee, chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Taste the same with lingering finish. Light body.
