hopwine (665) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Tons of roasted malt, prominent coffee, primarily pine for the hop profile accompanied by some citrus. Firm, but not overbearing bitterness provides an interesting counterpoint to the richness of the coffee. Really nice stuff!

Szopeen (227) - Toruñ, POLAND - MAY 22, 2016
Przepięknie prezentujące się piwo, nieprzejrzyście czarne z fantastyczną czapą piany, która odmierza na szkle każdy łyk. W smaku mamy zarówno owoce tropikalne i cytrusowe, jak i nuty czekoladowe. W smaku jest równie przyjemnie, piwo mimo swoich parametrów jest niesamowicie pijalne, alkohol kompletnie niewyczuwalny.

Bov (11500) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 19, 2016
from Au Trappiste - pours a very dark brown beer under a creamy long lasting beige foam; nice lace; fairly roasted aroma of coffee, licorice, vanilla and black cherries; full-bodied, tasty and lively, solidly bitter, dry; long coffeish aftertaste with notes of ashes and licorice - great!

Raviq (69) - POLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Very dark brown or black colour, nice beige head and lacing. Aroma is a combination of strong hoppiness - mostly mango and grapefuit, intensive coffee and some dark malts. Beer is medium-dry, a little sour from dark malts and coffee and a little salty, I feel that the salt should increase sweetness but it doesn’t seem that way. Biterness is medium and it has qualities of both hops and coffee. Alcohol is present, but not too agressive, nice and complex beer.

Foffern (1605) - Bodĝ, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle at home. Has a black colour with a huge khaki creamy head. Roasted aroma with lots of coffee, ash, smoke, wood, dark chocolate and some grapefruit in the background. Rich taste with lots of roasted malt, coffee, ash, dark wood, very dark chocolate and grassy hops in the end. Has a slick and silky mouth feel, full-bodied and solid bitterness. A very tasteful and aromatic ale. Well roasted and quite bitter. Lot more stout than IPA in this.

Rune (10633) - Tromsĝ, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2016
330ml bottle, trade with Skinnyviking. A creamy, fawn-coloured head resting over a near-black coloured body. Crocheted lacing. Smoothly roasted malts on the nose, hints of coffee and molasses. Burnt dark malty flavours joined by moments of dark bread, salty liquorice, molasses and coffee. Roasted endnotes. Fine bodied. Lovely beer, had expected even more though (Tromsĝ 04.05.2016).

romanstep (119) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 4, 2016
W nosie kawa, paloność, likier kwawowy, w tle delikatna ziołowość i cytrusy. Czarne jak smoła, nieprzejrzyste, super zbita, beżowa piana. W smaku bardzo złożone, kawa, czekolada, karmel, paloność, cytrusy. Wyraźna strona słodowa, ale przez kontrę kwaskową od palonych słodów piwo nie jest zamulające. Goryczka spora palono- grejpfrutowa. Dużo ciała, olejiste, kremowe, wysycenie niskie, alkoholu prawie nie czuć. Klasa. Kran w KiK.

Acid303 (654) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - APR 30, 2016
33cl bottle, served in Tulip glass. Pours black with medium beige head. Good lacing. Aromas of coffee, citrus, roasted malts and caramel...smells so special. The flavour is very unique as well: coffee, citrus and earthy hops, chocolate, vanilla...really complex. Pleasant bitterness on the palate along with the roasty touch, everything’s in haromny. No alcohol presence at all. Body is almost full, carbonation is perfect. Awesome one!

HPDalen (134) - - APR 29, 2016
Superb hoppy aroma full of citrus, grapefruit and earthy malt. Pours dark with a tall head. Tastes coffee, chocolate, grapefruit. Works really well. Full bodied, feels slightly oily, wonderful and long after taste. Fantastic beer

lello4ever (508) - ITALY - APR 27, 2016
Praticamente nera, con ampia schiuma marroncina, abbastanza compatta ma con tante piccole bollicine. Un bel aroma di malto tostato, caffè, cioccolato. Bevuta davvero piacevole e scorrevole, amaro piuttosto contenuto, malto, tostatura, caffè, accenni di liquirizia e legno. Chiude lunga. Carbonazione medio bassa. Corpo pieno, intensa, alcol presente ma non invadente, si beve con facilità. Molto buona soprattutto lato malto, manca solo un pelo di amarezza in più.

Catchup rate from BD AGM2016. Black with tan frothy head. Roasted coffee and chocolate. Light hops. Bitter earthy coffee. Ooof!
