Pours black with nice small mocha head. Burning pipe tobacco, charcoal, maybe a little skunk and some faint citrus offer an aroma that is original if not appealing. Body is fairly thin in first instance, it gathers some steam but is ultimately disappointing. Flavours are muddled and oppressed by a really repugnant growing roasted-malt (primarily coffee) bitterness which carries to the finish. Yuk, this really isn’t for me.

Pours black with a tan head. The aroma is excellent with roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. The flavor has a nice bitterness to it balancing nicely. It's very smooth and quite refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jjsint (1665) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle from the Mill, Cambridge. Very dark brown, threatens to be black but never quite makes it. Slightly sour smell with blackberry, vanilla, quinoa, lemon curd all vying for attention. Balanced bittersweet and slightly sour taste, with hints of salt liquorice, black pepper and soy sauce in the finish. On another night I may rate this lower, as the complexity seems to muddle the overall impression. But tonight it seems right to have a beer that makes me think.

shoulderbroken (3061) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle. Nice pine aroma, bit of cream too. Light roastiness too. Taste is great. Quite subtle. Chocolate, light coffee, then citrus fruitiness. Bit funky maybe. Creamy, very nice. Subdued in its deliciousness. Further down hop hit has gone, just lovely maltiness.

Think I would have liked this slightly colder. Thick mouthfeel, with a variety of hops

Swaroga (1827) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2015
Dark brown, almost black color with big head. Aroma has a strong coffee, ashtray, citrus zest, pine and resins. Strong carbonation but creamy mouth feel. The beer is dry and bitter with a long dry coffee and pine aftertaste. Strong carbonation is tiring. Not a bad beer but on the end a bit too much overwhelming. Cask should be better.

_angst_ (3850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2015
Draught @ BBB. Pours hazy black with a big frothy mocha head that leaves lots of sticky lacing and trace in the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and roasty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, rye bread, grapefruit juice, mango, cocoa powder, moist grass, pine needles, moist soil, sweet liquorice candy and lemon peal. Taste is bitter, herbal and earthy. Mouthfeel is heavy astringent and medium bodied. Finish is bitter with roasted malts, grapefruit juice, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, moist grass, pine needles, moist soil and lemon peal. Bit rough...
