Just an outstanding example. Rich, thick, oily, full bodied mouthfeel. ABV well hidden, but the hum of alcohol is really well balanced with the flavour of the malts. tastes of chocolate, sherry, rich dried fruits. Not too roasty. which is working well with this beer (I do like them roasty too though). Even the Mrs likes it, and she drinks wine!

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.

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
