Color: dark black brown beer with no carbonization and medium brown head. Smell: high complexity with coffee, caramel, malt. Taste: caramel, sugar and cold coffee. Aftertaste: sugar and small bitterness, domination of cold coffee.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Matt. Thanks!
A: Flourishing mocha head with a still ink body. Good lacing.
N: Big chocolate and espresso flavor. Heavy malted milk. Some molasses and soy sauce. Caramel and vanilla and whiskey drift around in the background, but are not pronounced.
T: Almost crunchy malt, wood, and coffee bitterness. Has a big swinging sweetness, but isn’t cloying. Astringent and souring...Not bad, yet, but it’s an unwelcome feature.
N: Thick, stickiness. Huge mouthfeel; really attacks the corners of the tongue. Alcohol is well hidden.
O: It’s the single off-flavor that really mars this for me. I really really want to rate this high, but it’s that damn spoiled coffee flavor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Black pour, small brown head. Aroma is packed with roast, caramel, earth, faint smoke, earth, earth, dryness, booze, plants, broccoli, fruit-sugar, and some faint hops. Lots of spices as well. Taste is similar to aroma; lots of earth, caramel and sugar, yeast, roast and heavy spices. A very different and original beer, not what I expected, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Bottle shared with Steptin. Deep brown pour with a tan head. Light aroma of dark chocolate/dark roast coffee. Lots of good dark chocolate, the flavor goes on and on. Rich and full, though still singular in flavor.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours in ultimately dark body with creamy beige head. Aroma is smoky, sweet of candy sugar and licorice, almost like wood ashes, loaded with coffee. Taste is bitter in front with sweet tail at the end, complex flavours are little bit masques by the bitterness, sadly. Body is full, creamy, well carbonation. Great beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
More distinct than Black Albert, at least for me. Poured a gigantic head over an oily body. Taste is almost overwhelming in chocolate and coffee, with a bite of alcohol to close it out. I feel that the palate is strong but I’m not sure it’s as filled out as it could be...

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Major thanks to Garthgoyle for this! The second this hit my glass I knew I was in for a treat. Loads of creamy fudge head.... like two inches of it.. jeebus, a massive thick sludgy pour me like me like! Big notes of coffee on the aroma, there’s oak and a pungent bourbon not the sweet smooth variety but the stuff that kicks you in the nuts after a night of bad decisions. Succulent creamy mouthfeel, lots of sweetness oh boy is this smooth, coffee comes in towards the middle gets less sweet and more roasty as it warms. Very decadent.

Pours a thick dark black with a mocha head that sticks around for a bit. Smells of wood, slight bourbon, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Taste is fantastic... Super complex bourbon, oak, coffee... Really impressive. Coats the pallette but dry. Awesome.
