Moolesen (294) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle 75cl. Black with a light brown head. Roaste malt and coffee aroma. Flavours compliment the aroma but the hop experience increases throughout enjoying this glas of very nice beer.

alteregoo (216) - POLAND - JAN 14, 2015
W niezbyt intensywnym aromacie pierwsze skrzypce grają likier kawowy, czekolada i paloność a w głębi ziołowe nuty chmieli i suszone daktyle. Po zamieszaniu wychodzi delikatna siarka. W smaku jest natomiast idealnie - przyjemna słodycz, czekolada mleczna przechodząca po chwili w deserową, kawa, prażone ziarna wszystko to skontrowane średnią żywiczną goryczką, króciutko pozostającą w posmaku. Alkohol rewelacyjnie ukryty, właściwie poza rozgrzewaniem nie czuć, że to ponad 9%. Fajna BIPA, o bardziej deserowym niż wytrawnym profilu, średnia pełnia, wysycenie również średnie do niskiego. Nie jest ani wodnista ani zbyt ciężka więc pije się szybko, trzeba uważać z racji wysokiego i ukrytego alkoholu. Gdyby nie trochę mało intensywny aromat i ta nieszczęsna siarka po zamieszaniu szkłem byłoby perfekcyjnie, a tak jest bardzo dobrze...

330 ml bottle from Beer-Shop.gr, Athens Greece. Dark brown head, beige head. Hoppy aromas, maybe caramel, roasted. Taste is bitter, with roasted, clack chocolate and caramel, with hops on the finish, pine, maybe some fruits. Aftertaste is bitter and long. Medium body with medium carbonation.

MarkoNm (1135) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 12, 2015
Pours a dark brown color, topped with a decent beige colored head. Slightly roasty arome, nice fruity notes and some bourbon-like aroma later on. Taste is sweet with very pleasant notes of caramel. Slightly roasty body with some final bitterness, mild altogether. Creamy and smooth, easily drinkable despite being 9,2%. A really nice surprise.

rdb84 (229) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown, coffee color. Nice large foam head. Very, very fruity aromas, discernible from across the table. Pineapple, lychee, coffee and cream, hint of licorice. Surprising aromas for this color. Taste: virtually all aromas disappear and it turns into a very agreeable stout with a distinct coffee-candy undertone. Roasted malts, slightly oily. Weird but not bad.

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2015
A beautiful deep black colour, a great hoppy, coffee nose, an amazing coffee and licorice taste with a nice bitterness and a long finish. What a good beer!
