12 oz bottle. Ebony with a crema head. Dark chocolate caramels with just enough musty molasses to soften the sweetness. So inviting. Coffee with cream, anise and licorice. Light carb, almost medium, but still rich. Mild drying and coffee beans. Lingering oatmeal.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of madsberg. A black beer with a tint of red and a light brown head. Extremely burned, coffeeish and ashy nose. Medium body full of hard burned malts and ashy accents - about a ton of coffee in here. The finish is dry with a subdued bitterness. 270607

Pours almost black with a thin creamy tan head. Aroma of bitter coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Taste much the same, almost like an unsweetened iced coffee. Nice!

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aromas of coffee, chocolate, butterscotch, and some vanilla. I could have smelled this all night. My first sip was decadence, and then the flavors deminished. Still a great beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This comes out of the bottle as a dark brown beer but turns black in the glass. The tan head is thin, but it does some nice lacing nonetheless. The predominant aroma is coffee supported by roasted dark malts and oatmeal. The flavor seems to intensify what’s found in the nose, and to that mix a little chocolate, alcohol, and earthy bitterness is added. Very smooth and quite tasty.

12 oz bottle shared with toncatcher. Awesome black pour with decent head. Aromas were super coffee. Iced black coffee on the flavor with just enough sweetness to make it a very very tasty brew.

Bottle from Woodman’s East in Madison purchased 5/25. Enjoyed side by side with a 2005 Dark Lord. While very good, this proved to be inferior to the DL, although better in the quality-to-price ratio. Notes of dark roasted coffee and oatmeal on the nose lead into a decidedly (and deliciously) chewy chocolate and coffee beast. Well crafted, with a smooth and sweet finish.
