Great looks: ebony black with espresso head and lacing. Dry roasted coffee aroma has also sweet licorice, dark fruits, chocolate. Light to medium body and feel but nice flavors: smoky roasting, nuanced, soft, sweetish finish after bit dry and bitter start. Liked this one. More body would make it even better but this is not bad. Not bad at all. Kavu (5029) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 20, 2012

TET (3176) - Kaarina, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
A cola black beer with a beautiful, brown, creamy and lacy head. Aroma is strongly roasted, but not too much, balancing milk chocolate, some coffee and salt liquirice. Taste is roasted and dry, lots of coffee, herbs, liquirice and some hops in the aftertaste. Smooth and pleasant to drink, medium bodied. Roastiness is dominating, but too burned, nice beer with enough of nuancess. . mikkopen (1192) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2013
355 ml bottle (4,7 % ABV). Black, with a thin brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, with coffee and smoky notes. The flavour is dryish, roasted malty, with coffee, notes of berries, ash and smoke. Very tasty, although a bit watery on the palate - the higher ABV version might be better in this respect. olio (10469) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 18, 2013
