UPDATED: OCT 1, 2012 Mainly coffee with malty aroma. Tast is darkness, coffee, roasty malt, light tobacco and notes of fruit. No difference or complexicity in the taste - just dark malt and coffee. Not a heavy body, actually pretty smooth. Decent beer.

The colour is very dark near to black with a red glimmer. The first taste is toasty-sweet in the aftertaste that flavour becomes more.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
July 2010: Brown 500ml bottle poured into a Veltins Pilsner glass and a Forbidden Fruit chalice.
The beer looked good in both glasses each showing off its good deep dark brown colour and lovely cream coloured head.
The aroma and taste was of roasted/toasted malts, almost burnt in the taste, with dark chocolate and rich coffee flavours trying to get past the burnt hints.
Fairly full in body and flavour, tastey, I am begining to warm towards this style more and more.
