lello4ever (509) - ITALY - MAY 23, 2016
Bel colore marrone scuro, ampia schiuma marrone compatta. Al naso bel aroma di malto tostato, torba, caffè intenso. Si conferma al palato, birra dal corpo non così impegnativo, alcol presente ma non eccessivo. Bevuta dolce, con una interessante presenza amara e di malto tostato, cioccolato, vaniglia. Birra ricca, più sul lato gusto che sul corpo o consistenza. Carbonazione medio bassa.

sjogro (2097) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2016
Tap at Klooster. Black with tan head. Dark roasted chocolate malts, very hoppy, fruity and marijuana-goodness. Nice coffee, espresso, vanilla, custard and some boozy notes, some smoke and ash. Low sweet medium bitter. Full body chocolate cake that fell in the ashtray. Low carbonation. Great full taste, long lasting coffee & cigarettes. Straight in the middle of my stout zone; weed-hoppy, coffee, ash. Boom! Tastes almost as if barrel aged btw.

bottle @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Pungent aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and blueberry. Opaque black color, frothy 2" brown head that refuses to go away, bands of lace. Taste is bitter roasted coffee malt with light smoke. A big. bold, brew that lays easy in the belly.

IlGagario (104) - Modena, ITALY - APR 18, 2016
In bottiglia. Colore nero impenetrabile. Testa color crema di caffé/marrone, da soapy (bolle larghe) a cremosa, densa, caramellata secca e amara. Carbonazione da soffice a media, pungente. Aroma cupo di caramello amaro, zucchero, toffee, ortica ed erbe amare, lontana liquirizia, crosta di pane nero, amaretto, terra e lontana torba. Gusto caramellato amaro ricco, inizialmente grasso poi decisamente secco, di amarezza molto intensa, al limite dell’acre, con successiva emersione di una solida luppolatura alquanto amara ed erbacea, controbilanciato da tappeto maltato di dolci note di zucchero. Dopo beva caramellato e maltato, meno amaro, con note balsamiche sempre secche, ma più dolci. Corpo più che medio, con alcool ben in evidenza. La scorrevolezza è discreta: si consiglia di sorseggiarla con calma, onde poterne apprezzare la struttura complessa. Trama da oleosa a lattica, mediamente grassa e terrosa, appena sticky sul finale. Ottima la sensazione di caramello amaro: è una birra intrigante e dark.
