jerd16 (226) - Gloucestershire, - APR 7, 2014
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.

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

Swaroga (1757) - 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_ (3545) - 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...

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
330ml from Beer Gonzo. Very deep mahogany collared with cappuccino. Aroma roasted, lactic, slightly dung-speckled and rustic with coffee and burnt floral hop lurking beneath. Soapy and floral flavour with ash, bitter black coffee and burnt puffed rice. More stout than IPA. Good but nowt special.
