Nice dark color with a medium, tan, burnt-looking head. Not really black, but reddish-black (darker than mahogany). Light bodied. Very smooth & drinkable. Lots of roasted malt. Pretty similar to a schwarzbier. The buckwheat gives it some nice nutty and earthy flavors. Lightly hopped, low bitterness.

monk191 (1179) - California, USA - OCT 23, 2014
A nice black ale. Pours a deep black with a thick tan head. Smells of rice pudding and French toast with a bit of hops. Taste is quite crisp, with more rice cakes, chocolate malts and a slightly hoppy finish with a bit of a flour-like fizziness on your tongue.

5/VII/14 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ RBBSG III (Gent) - BB: n/a (2014-745) Thanks to Benzai for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark purple brown beer, creamy beige head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: mocha, some caramel, sweet malts, some dried fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: caramel, some chocolate, sweet bitter hops, little roasted. Aftertaste: bitter, hoppy, bit malty, coffee touch. Not my thing.

wyzzywyz22 (2043) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from Beer Moth, Manchester. Dark brown pour with a fading tan head. Aroma had roasted malt, dark fruit choc and a little spice. The flavour was slightly sweet with more roasted malt, and notes of fruits and licorice. Some vague hoppage lurking in the shadows. Seemed a bit thin. Forgettable and sits on the average side of the street.

It pours with a thick, brown head. It is dark brown in color. It has coffee aromas mixed with nuts that has a spicy pop to it. The head is uneven and does provide some lacing as it recedes. It has a coffee and nut taste with other roasted flavors.
