Bottle. Pours close to black, looking jet-black in the glass. A large and creamy looking, tan head is produced. Very nice aroma of roasted malts, dark coffee and piney hops. A whiff of alcohol as well, along with some chocolate notes, liquorice and leather. Complex and very nice! Wow, taste is also very nice! Fairly bitter but not unbalanced. Loads of flavors, sweet malts at first into roasted grains and coffee and finishes with bitter, piney hops and more coffee. And more roast! Has a slick mouthfeel and is full to medium-full bodied. Avg to just above avg co2 levels. Long bitter finish.

BenOver (175) - SLOVENIA - JUL 10, 2015
Pours black with a medium head. Aromatic, strong coffee aroma, hint of pineapple. Full bodied, first a strong aour like taste with a well balanced carbonation, evolving in to a dry, roasted hoppy finish. Excellent craftsmanship!

nihtila (1721) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 24, 2015
Bottle from Za Popents shop, Ljubljana. Pours almost black with light brown head. Intense aroma of dark malts, plenty of citrus and piney hops, fruits, coffee, earthy notes. Taste is strong, roasted malts, coffee, pine, citrus hops, grapefruit - very bitter. Light boozy. Bitter and intense BIPA, maybe a bit too much not in the best balance.

Först ett starkt bärnstensaktigt Bra huve som lägger sig lätt, mest skum som sätter sig intill glaset, mer först i mitten.mest små bubblor & färgen är svart. Inte så stark doft som jag hoppats men man kände rostad malt, humle & kaffe såklart. Första droppen mot tungan påminner om kola som går över till choklad när den lägger sig lite mot gommen & en vis kolsyrad karaktär infinner sig sen kommer kaffet & trycker på & när ölen går ner mot svalget infinner sig en humlig & sträv kaffe bitterhet blandad med lakrits som ligger kvar länge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared thanks to kermis. Black with small beige head. Lovely hoppy smell here... Soft coffee and cocoa, followed by soft grapefruit, lime, flowery, dark bread. Quite some fresh coffee. Medium sweet with light to medium bitterness. Medium bodied with creamy feel. Nice one.

kermis (6958) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours dark brown with a short lived beige head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, roast, dark chocolate, coffee and fruits. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It doesn’t come across as extreme in any way but rather soft and balanced.

mR_fr0g (5348) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle at home from Brewdog Online. Black / dark caramel brown coloured pour with a huge frothy mid tan head. Aroma is initially roast driven, with salted caramel, campfire, hint of smoke, earthy coffee. Later the hops develope with some burnt pine needles, little citrus. Flavour is composed of bitter black roast, earthy coffee grounds, bit of a rounding sweet caramel, burnt pine wood. Big and bold the malts are to the fore, but plenty of hops as well. Palate is medium full, chewy, tangy bitter finish, highish carbonation. Xolid.
