4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 Re rate: On tap at bells, complex aroma with chocolate, malts, hops and some heat. A similar flavor! Really good!
Smells heavily of tamari/soy sauce. Taste has amazingly heavy roast and is syrupy thick/sweet. Really amazingly smooth for so much roast but cannot get past the soy sauce overtones. Would not buy again.

Deep brown, might as well call it black, with a quarter inch or more of dense light brown foam. Aroma is malty with a hint of maybe figs and dates. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, with just the right amount of hops to counter the sweetness. Bit of an alcohol burn on the finish. Spectacular.

Pretty much black color with a thin brown head that dissipates quickly. Aromas and flavors are like chocolate covered dried fruit with a roasted backing. Full body almost syrupy. Lengthy finish. strap (966) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - NOV 15, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2017 Deep black with no head. Solid flavor of cherries, vanilla, coffee. Malty with a little hoppiness . Well done

A nice, yet pronounced malt forward. Rich mouth feel and low carbonation. No light shall pass! darkness, with light head. Yup, the resinous fruit flavors are there. Could be this seasons favorite....

Bottle. It poured a dark brown almost black color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits and some alcohol. The taste was similar to the aroma with more dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits, alcohol and with medium carbonation and a heavy sweet aftertaste. Very good. nutjes (1243) - Zwevegem, BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2017

Pours a nice black color with a thin one finger khaki head. The aroma is booze, charred malts, brown bread, vanilla, and some dark fruits. The flavor is a nice combination with the booze pretty noticeable in the flavor. There is some bitterness but coming from the charred malts. The mouth feel is on the heavy side and is more of a sipper.
