Black, light brown color layer of head. Complex dark fruits. Smoke and earthy notes. Along with the smell. very heavy on the dark druits. The ABV is no where to be found. Thick bodied, so smooth and silky.

Rating #1000 Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is loaded with chocolate, roast, raisin/fig, and some caramel. The flavor is about the same, some lingering earthy and floral hops and coffee on the back end. Nice viscous body and mellow carbonation.

Christpuncher (2553) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2016
Aroma is whiskey, some chocolate and raisin. Flavor is strong whiskey, raisin, and some cherry. Strong bite, this may need to age a few years to take the edge off.

Cybercat (4637) - Georgia, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Pours coffee brown with a nice tan head. Aroma presents roast malt, coffee, molasses and licorice tones. Bold flavor delivers rich molasses, roast malt, coffee, semi-sweet and licorice notes; it is rather sweet but not cloying. Viscous body delivers a strong and persistent fizz. Enjoy the darkness! Another one off me beer bucket list.

Sampled at the SCCCT event at Friendship Brewery. 2012 Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts and dark fruits. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, dark fruits, some sweetness and just an overall awesome brew. Need to try it again.

Holy cow. I gave up rating beers long time ago competing with my 1000+ friends, but this one I had to rate. Best beer I have ever tasted I guess. Or at least best I have ever had the time and mood to rate. Of course i have to make space for possibly better beers so 4.7 it is. Black with light head. Thick. Perfectly Sweet, sour, salty, bitter, I dont even. Smells like rubber, rugbrød, gasoline, teen spirit. Or it might not, i’m just not skilled enough to determine it. I’ll never again drink anything but this beer ( I would wish).
