Jet black, low lingering brickish red head. Aroma cocoa powder, espresso. Robust body, roastiness nicely blends with sour cocoa nibs. Long lasting bitterness - well hopped. Maybe too much, otherwise rating would be bit higher.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’ at 10% abv, bottled in October 2014. Pitch black with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, light brown head. Intense, sweetish, roasty aroma of dark chocolate, mocca, licorice and cocoa. Sweetish-malty, moderately roasty taste of dark chocolate, mocca, licorice, cocoa and hints of hazelnut, followed by a long, slightly warming, rather roasty-bitter finish. Full body, creamy ans viscid mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very intense flavours, great mouthfeel, overall very satisfying. Just lovely!

Aromat gorszy od smaku, w aromacie troche przypalonego pieczywa i orzechów, kawy w tle, w smaku bardzo gęste lepiące, z fajnym orzechowo waniliowo kawowym posmakiem, podsumowując bardzo dobre warto ściągać z półki, polecam

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear, sunny-amber color, with a huge froth head on top.
Smells of wheat entangled orange peel, spiced up by black peppers and coriander. Offers a soothing wet grass quality among toffee malts and a whiff of rock sugar.
Has a higher, lively carbonation, although the beer’s overall soft and creamy mouthfeel prevails, while adding a nice refreshment to it.
Tastes of bitter cardamom and equally bitter lemon peel accompanied by white orange zest, hay and a rock sugar peak. Unusually refreshing with blood oranges and a note of black peppers together with a soft aqueous quality. Finishes with a world class creaminess, while a perfectly dosed, bubbly carbonation cuts through along with sweeter spices, and a still recognizable bitter counterpart from the beginning.
Fantastic beer overall, offers a unique twist while sticking to the style, perfected by its balance and supersmooth mouthfeel.
