PilsnerDoctor32 (91) - madrid, SPAIN - MAR 25, 2017
Botella 0,5cl. Color negro con espuma de color cafe, burbujas no igualadas y desaparece en seguida sin dejar rastro. Aroma chocolate, malta, frutas secas. Sabor chocolate, nueses, malta, algo de acidez en postgusto. Amargor casi no se nota.Muy dulce hasta molesto, parece como una Malta centroamericana con alcohol ingerido.Viscoso.

fidelis83 (2317) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Dark brown pour with a smallish beige head. Aroma is dark caramel, bread, a hint of roast and a touch of fusel spiciness. Flavor is about the same, but the fusel notes are much more evident, some cardboard oxidation. Medium body, syrupy feel, light carbonation. Not good.

Pours pitch black, tan head. Aroma is coffee, blackberry, cola jelly, walnut. Taste starts moderately sweet, then slightly sour. A little watery, not really mouth-covering. Somewhat bitterish medium-lasting finish.

ghostbeer (188) - Nebraska, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Had no idea what to expect from this when I ordered it. Very dark and almost had a burnt toast quality mingled with a syrupiness that was strange. No real reason to go back to this one.

Nice creamy head, long lasting, black color. Aroma: coffee, chocolate, dark malts. Taste: roasted, quite bitter, dark fruit, medium to full body, oily. Well balanced. Though I noticed that the taste differs from bottle to bottle.
