Beautiful black pour with a big foamy tan head. Aroma is bread, chocolate, coffee, vanilla. Flavor has a lot of sweetness at first then the hops come in. Very nicely balanced. Nice and dry finish with a great aftertaste that keeps showing up after it’s long gone. Very good. garmonbozia (429) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - MAR 19, 2010
Bottle from the Wine and Cheese store. Obvious black with huge dark head. Smell of bitter chocolate and dried fruit. Low carbination. Bread, spices and a dry finish Brix (660) - DENMARK - MAR 18, 2010
Tasted 2010-03-18. 6 months old bottle. Pours dark brown with a bronzy, grey/brown head. Aroma of coffee, rye, (vanilla?). Very strong flavours of roasted malts, coffee and pure liquorice. Bitterness is actually quite mild for the style. I can’t remember having had this powerfull a beer at such (relatively) low ABV before. Well done!

Bottle from the Wine and Cheese place. Pours a deep chocolate brown with a a nice and creamy tan head, a touch of lacing. Great nose of vanilla, coconut, cocoa dust with faint coffee and toasted malts lingering in the back ground. very creamy on the palate, kind of marshmellow-y with a kind of bittersweet chocolate finish. Damn good stuff! Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2010

(bottle) deep black with nice medium tan head and a little lace. Weird chemical aroma initially, but that wasn’t evident in the taste. Later aroma was toasted malt. Flavor is toasted slightly smoky malt, spice (?caraway), coffee. sebletitje (10059) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2010
gusher ... pours dark brown, light mocha head.
Aroma, pumpernickel bread is thin, roasted malts and some caramel/chocolate.
Flavor, definite notes of the pumpernickel, heavy dark grainy bread with some spices, roasted malts, medium-high carbonation.
Lots of roast, caramel and hints of cacao nibs. This is a nice tasty treat with the right amount of spices. MeadMe (1652) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2010
