jerd16 (219) - 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.

In short:nice black hoppy ale.
Pours black with nice tan head. Short head retention, some lacing. Roasty, liquorice, coffee aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is coffee, moderate bitterness, some dry, abit grassy flavours. Enjoyable.

teorn88 (2436) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2014
Keg at The Gun, London. It pours a deep amber-brown color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is earthy and malty with notes of pines needles, dried leaves and cut grass. Taste is malty with some caramel, earthy notes and piney hops and resin. Quite full bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, a really good take on the style

Deep, almost black pour with a tan, 1/2 inch thick persistent head. Looks great. Cocoa, roast, coffee, grapefruit aromas. Coffee, cocoa, roasted malt, then a nice piney, tropical fruit finish. Thumbs up

dslam (59) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Dark beer with good amount of off white head. I smell chocolate, hops and malts. Crisp to the taste and has a good body that warms you up. Leaves a light bitter taste lingering behind, begging you to take another sip. Perfect for winter time with heavy meals.

Davros (1999) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2014
Pours black with a large light tan head. Nose shows cocoa, roasted malt, nutty notes and soft piny and spicy hops. More cocoa as a flavour along with coffee, caramel and toffee, very similar to tiramisu. Then there’s some more pine and a mildly hoppy bitter finish. Carbonation is a on the heavy side.

Draught at Taphouse. Medium high lasting white head. Pitch black body. Sweet roasted malt coffee cocoa aroma. Powerful roasted malt caramel coffee cocoa flavor, nicely hopped. Low carbonation, long finish.
