Poured from a bottle purchased in Slovenia into a tall glass to drink. The beer had a dark brown-black color with a dark brown hue and a large creamy tan head with pretty good retention, and average cling and lacing. Its aroma featured coffee and chocolate along with toffee and caramel malt with bread and grain. A very bitter grainy and earthy coffee and caramel taste with a mild sweetness. The beer had a fairly full and thick body with average carbonation and a dry finish.

Bottle 0,50L. Pours almost black with large, long lasting, creamy, light brown head, that leaves some excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, mild coffee, cocoa/chocolatte. Taste starts light bitter and caramely with moderate bitter finish. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

pivnizub (9905) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle: Literally black with a shy ruby sheen, big and slowly collapsing lacy tanned head; burnt malt, coffee. dried black berries and a tinge of molasses in the nose; dryish bitter flavour with a slight residual sweetness, light bodied, really smooth; slightly lingering mild dry roasty finish, some bitterness in the aftertaste. Well crafted…

beeebon (378) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2015
Pours very dark with slight tn head which lingers. Aroma is licorice, roasted malt, slight dark fruit, coffee and a note of chocolate. Taste is a little more one dimensional, straight out bitter with a hint of sweetness. A little thin feeling in the mouth but certainly drinkable. A nice enough beer!
