Dashimus (227) - London, Greater London, - FEB 18, 2013
Pours dark brown/black with a medium thickness tan head that fades quickly. Aroma is soy sauce, coffee, malt, caramel and roasted malts. Flavour brings out more roasted coffee, caramel and liquorice. Heavy sweetness with a full body and low carbonation.

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

Mad_Ferret (939) - SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2016
Draught at Akkurat. Black with a dense two finger head. Nose: tar, coffee, licorice and molasses. Taste: sweet roasted with coffee, dark chocolate, licorice and molasses. Woody herbal bitter finish. Mouth: sticky, soft/smooth and fairly big. A well rounded and tasty imp. considering it is more licorice forward than I normally prefer.

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.

Bottle at home from Alus Celle Riga. Almost black with dark brown tint color. Very thin mocca color head which leave fast, but stay on the glass. Aroma: coffee, roasty, dark chocolate a little. Taste: medium sweetness change in bitter and spicy notes. Full body, thin and a little creamy texture with long bitter finish. Actually excillent balanced beer, but a little boring.

Thefakeone (2) - POLAND - APR 24, 2016 does not count
Aromat stosunkowo mało wyraźny czuć karmel, toffi, czekoladę i mocną kawę. W wyglądzie czarne z brązowymi refleksami, piana ładna, utrzymuje się całkiem długo. W smaku jest bardzo pełne - wszystkie smaki łączą się i dają całość przyjemną dla języka, czuć głównie kawę, gorzką czekoladę i toffi, na dalszym planie delikatna wanilia i orzechowość.
