Gehbe (230) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 5, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2016 Very dark brown with huge frothy/creamy brown head. Amazing and everchanging aroma of coffee, flowers, herbs, dried plums, chocolate, dark bread crust, nuts and the whole world. Tastes rather sweet with enough sourness to offset it, but roasty bitterness takes the top seat - it keeps rocking between those three until it culminates with crispy hoppy bitterness to linger for a long time. Thick yet creamy, with nice alco warmness that plays along with the taste really well. Simply marvelous!

DuffMan (9541) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle, shared with thephantomhennes. Near black pour, brown head. Resinous pine, coffee, licorice, bitter chocolate, light capsicum. This packs a lot of complexity, but it somehow works extremely well. Delicious, full bodied.

willisread (2455) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a deep brown to black with a finger of head that lingers. Big roasted cacao nib nose with roasted coffee, salted caramel, earthy hops and more baked chocolate. Some marshmallow notes as it warms. Roasty and slightly sweet on the palate (but not as sweet as many of these types of beers can be) with a big dank, dirty weed notes with chocolate on the finish. Bitter finish. Super complex and solid. Very nice.

LazyPyro (570) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2016
330ml bottle from BrewDog Online. Almost black colour, frothy three finger tan head, good retention, lacing. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt, liquorice, hops. Complex and bittersweet taste with coffee, fruity bitter hops, grapefruit, liquorice, dark chocolate. Smooth oily texture, bitter finish. Fantastic beer, the flavours work so well together in this. Great stuff. BB 11/02/21

kustie (884) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle. Opaque black color with light brown head. Aroma has coffee, roasted malt, tropical fruits, dark chocolate. Taste is malty sweet with long bitter and quite dry aftertaste. Flavors of roasted malt, tropical fruits, citrus, coffee, ash, dark chocolate. Complex and somehow very strange one as the tastes are so mixed but still so good and well-paired.

vincentvega72 (383) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2016 Mooi donker bier met romige crèmekleurige schuimkraag die goed aan het glas blijft plakken en langzaam wegebt. Hoppig aroma met toetsen van koffie, mout, klein beetje vanille (?), beetje drop. Zoete aanzet. Vol en halfzwaar in de mond. Afdronk licht Koffie - bitter. Zeer zacht voor een bier van 9,9 % abv. Alcohol zit zeer goed verstopt. Perfecte balans. Topbier !!
