slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 27, 2017
Very dark brown, khaki head that lasts. Heavily roasted aroma and flavor with more than expected bitterness, some dark fruit and light brine. I’m a fan of the style, and this was done pretty well.

3.5
Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 18, 2017
Bottle purchased and consumed at Oxbow Portland. Pours a rich burnt umber with three fingers of khaki foam. Nose is roast forward with some underlying dried plum, ash and bakers cocoa. Palate follows with medium to full mouthfeel, soft carbonation even though there was quite a head, lots of roasted grain, spent coffee grounds, tangy plum, salty cocoa. Slight metallic flavor lingers which detracts a bit from the overall appeal but a decent offering.

dnicolaescu (2520) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 11, 2017
BOTTLE 33 CL. Pitch black, dark espresso head. Really thick aroma of dried prunes, sticky burnt sugar thrown into a strong well roasted espresso. The taste is similar, but not up to the richness of the aroma, leaving you listing for more body. The finish is moderately bitter, slightly acid, with some ashes in the after taste. Quite good.

3.4
Zymurgeist2 (2179) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 7, 2017
From bottle to glass. Pours an inky black with no head. Chocolate and slight funk in the aroma. Flavor is dry cocoa. Dry finish.
