COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

stevoj (2714) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Dark brown colour to black. Light brown, bubbly head about two fingers width high and with good retention. Dark roasted malts to start along with some sugar and good, earthy hops following this. There is a nutty aroma up next and a rich almost chocolate like smell towards the end. Medium body with good carbonation without overdoing it. There is a touch of fizz and a good lingering malty aftertaste that is back up by a slight bit of bitterness and goes down very well.

Strong dark, almost black, beer, with caramel taste followed with slightly roasty sweetness which can also be smell-tasted. One of top dark beers. Strong recomendation to try it.

Derbeth (447) - Kraków, POLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Aroma is roasted malt. Minimal brown head. Light bitterness, but rather from alcohol than from hops. Full body, heavy, not very drinkable.

Scopey (8455) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2013
Bottle at Pivnica Liro, Sibenik. It pours dark brown with a medium beige head. The nose is roasty, toast, earth, raisin, date, fig and treacle. The taste is bitter-sweet, roasty, earth, light bitterness, cocoa and treacle, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Well hidden alcohol. Tasty, well-balanced and rather drinkable. Nice!
