Pours black with a nice brown head. Aroma of earthy coffee, vanilla, dark roasted malts, darker fruits, cocoa powder and some sharp alcohol in the back. Taste is the same with some more roasted bitterness, wood, weak salty and with a pretty boozy feel.

Squid ink pour with a small latte head. Loads of dark roasted coffee, green pepper, raisin, and a bit of alcohol. Chewy and coating mouthfeel. Just not what I was looking for.

Bottle 75cl, a dark beer with medium brown head, got long gushing with 13° !! Nose is on wood and cherries as for an oude bruin with roasted notes. Aroma is sweet, very roasted, got the typical wood and oude bruin touch, donno if this is normal for it. Anyway bit disappointed about whole complexity, yes too expensive for what it is.

Bottle shared by Shawn: Opaque with small frothy head and okay lace. The aroma is big coffee and tobacco esters, some rum, oak, flowers, chocolate, vanilla, cardamom, and mint. The taste starts with a heavy malt profile before a huge coffee overtone and moderate alcohol character comes about full force, Undertones of chocolate, vanilla, rum, berry, and pepper as well. The mouth feel is oily and aggressive, strangely almost too thin for the palate profile. This is a solid brew just not world-class, the coffee becomes even more pronounced as it warms.

molto buona... forse meglio della black mes... l’affinamento in botte di rum la rende fruttata e valorizza le note torrefatte..... eccellente!

Bottle… Pours midnight black with a mid-sized, light brown head. Fantastic retention. The nose offers charred wood and acrid espresso grounds with whispers of cayenne and chili peppers. Full-bodied and slick with medium carbonation. The flavor suggests mild acidity, heavily roasted black and chocolate malt sweetness and carbonaceous bitterness. Burnt, bitter, lightly tangy finish. Thanks go out to darkguardian for sharing this one with the Delray Beach gang!
