Tasted on tap @Mr Foleys, Leeds. Pours totally black, with a nice brownish head. Aroma is faint, but having a pleasant sweet chocolate note. Taste has lots of vanilla&chocolate, not so much of roasted tones and a bit tart in the end. Aftertaste is nice, solid chocolate tones with a proper bitterness. Proves its name. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle. BB 08/17. Pours a very deep brown with a low brownish head which reduced to a collar, leaving a trace of lacing. Aroma of cocoa powder, roasted malt, some espresso and incense. Some light sweetness in a light to medium body is followed by the lingering roasted bitterness.

Fluxing (275) - POLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana zostawia gruba warstwe i mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie bardzo intensywna czekolada, lekka kawa, karmel, migdaly, lekko ziolowy i owocowy chmiel. W smaku wytrawne, gladkie, lekko kwasne, intensywnie palone, lekko mleczne. Goryczka niska, ziolowa, lekko lodygowa i owocowa. Wysycenie niskie, ledwie wyczuwalne.

hawthorne00 (2401) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle, 10C. Black with a modest beige head. Aroma of chocolate, brioche, spices. On the light side of medium bodied, lowish carbonation. Not all that sweet, certainly dominated by chocolate, really set off nicely with a spiced and slightly astringent bitter finish.
