Color black with beige foam not very abundant and poor retention. Smell of chocolate, some ceral and wet tree leaf. Entry into soft, creamy and silky mouth. Taste of chocolate, coffee and toffee. Although cloying aftertaste is dry. Little dense. Good set. Very digestive.

abirres (56) - Salamanca, SPAIN - JUL 23, 2016
Negra, opaca y espuma cremosa color beige y de buena retención. Aroma a café, chocolate, vainilla, bizcocho borracho, granos tostados. En boca esperaba algo más de cuerpo, carbónico perfecto. Sabor a café, maltas chocolate. Final ligeramente seco y un amargor muy sútil equilibrando la dulzura de las maltas. Redonda.

mariuspoenari (1380) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2016
33cl bottle. Very dark brown pour with a medium height beige head that gives way to a thin lacing. Smells like roasted malts, brewed coffee, cherries, almonds and dark chocolate. The taste is well balanced between roasty bitter and sweet, with notes of chocolate, coffee, molasses, cocoa and some cherries in the background. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation, medium body and a roasty bitter-sweet finish.
