Bottle 2013. Pour - black with medium creamy tan head. Aroma - chocolate, figs, caramelized malt, licorice, smoke, Taste - chocolate covered cherry, toasted malt, licorice, espresso beans, lemon rind, citrus hops Palate - oily mouthfeel, very slick. Sweet and sour taste that finishes with swift roasted malt finish. This is one of my new favorite beers. Surprisingly complex, very delicious and chocolaty.

Excalibur123 (62) - Soria, SPAIN - MAR 16, 2014
Color negro intenso, buena cabeza de espuma beige que perdura, en nariz aromas a café, chocolate negro, regaliz y frutos negros, en boca entrada suave y sedosa acariciando el paladar con un tardío y ligero amargor en el retrogusto, en el trago más notas a chocolate negro, cuerpo medio y carbónico ligero, una stout muy interesante y compleja.

mgajdaczewa (301) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Aromat bardzo przyjemny, wielce obiecujący, sporo kakao, ciemnej czekolady i przebijające się przez to nuty wiśni w czekoladzie, spojone wyraźną alkoholową nutą. Smak niestety rozczarowuje. Wyraźna goryczka, lekka paloność, lekka czekoladowość osadzająca się na dłużej na podniebieniu, ziarnistość i melanoidyny tworzące niezbyt przyjemny finisz w stylu bardziej przypominającym bittera aniżeli risa. Do tego alkohol niezbyt dobrze ukryty, spora likierowość. Pijalność przyzwoita, nie męczy, ale nudzi.

arsol (414) - NORWAY - MAR 8, 2014
Svart farge med beige skum. Lukter kakao, kaffe og litt svisker. Smaker salt, og er fyldig med god bitter avslutning. Serverte denne alt for kald og luktene og smakene kom fram mer og mer etter som ølen ble mer temperert.

Vighals (763) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2014
Svart med rødskjær og lys brunt skum. Kakaopulver, mørk sjokolade og salt lakris og tørket stenfrukt. Bitter sjokolade og noe smak av tørket frukt. Portvinsmaken kommer etterhbert som temperaturen stiger. Lite kullsyre, kort ettersmak.

Svart med brunt skumlag. Aroma av kaffe, kakao, svisker og litt alkohol. Smaker salt, kaffe, kakao og svisker. Fyldig og rundt munnfølelse. Lite kullsyre, god, bitter og søtlig ettersmak. Veldig god!
