Smells like chocolate, licorice, charcoal, oranges, dates, dried fruit. Taste mirrors the aroma, finish is smokey, acrid, charcoaly black malt. Very nice.

Frothmeister (547) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
330ml bottle. Pours almost black with a thin dark orange tinged mocha coloured head. Smells awesome. Molasses, burnt sugar, caramel, dried fruit, Black Panda licorice, Demerara rum, and some definite booziness. As for taste more molasses up front with dried fruit, amber rum, that leads into espresso, caramel, some good bitterness, with some light ash, and light vanilla in the finish. It’s like this beer was custom made for me. I love it!
