Botte 0,33l. Completely black with a brownish creamy head. Smells burned. Burnt aroma - and leaves a burnt aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - trade with chris_o. A black beer with a really nice frothy tan coloured head, although this disipates faster than I would have liked. The aroma is very smoky and oily. Obvious roasted malt in the nose. Taste is very dry and smoky; quite burnt and quite tasty although I feel there’s something lacking in the finish.

Bottle. Brown creamy and very appetiting head. Pitch black body even though I did as always, held it towards a lamp, aroma of tarred rope. The rope is also tastable in the flavor but not it is added liqorice. Add a nice hops aftertaste and you’ve got it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small, tan, normal-laced head. Opaque black body. Dense licorice aroma with faint notes of wild berries and coffee. Dense, powerful taste much like the aroma, bitter, burnt aftertaste with lingering coffee taste. Sweetish. More of a stout, IMHO, but still very good. Perhaps a bit lacking in complexity.

Thanks to MrFacto for sharing this beauty that was on my want list. The beer pours to a really dark cola body with a thin white head. The aroma is coffee and iced tea. Very strong and very good. The flavor is a roasty charcoal malt and coffee. Very balanced and very good. Nice roasty full bodied palate.
