Bottle, 11C. Black with a fat coat of tan head. Fudgy aroma with mocha, black strap, anise and other spices. Silky, fullish bodied. Low carbonation. Not all that sweet with mocha, some molasses, surprisingly modest roasted flavours , licorice becomes more prominent towards the fairly bitter end. A slight creamy/ brioche return right at the end fattens it out nicely. Complex , interesting, good. Might be a grower. ShivanDragon (4304) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2017
dag na het Brett Festival, even wat anders na een dagje zuur bier. van fles, schenkt zwart met erg fijne licht bruine kraag, verdwijnt wel wat snel, wat aan de koude kant. aroma van geroosterde en gebrande mouten, chocolade, lactose. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, vanille, koffie, redelijk aan de droge kant, cacaopoeder, drop, lichte laurier, redelijke body, geroosterde bittere afdronk, zachte co2, aardig, geen top-50 bier Trolleo (1687) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 22, 2017
Earthy, cocoa, licorice, dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla aroma. Pitch black color, can’t see if hazy or clear, small to medium sized brown head. Earth is my thing. Again, earthy, dark chocolate, cocoa, medium bitter with hints of sweetness. Very nice cocoa aftertaste, extremely well balanced. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Bottle, 0.355l. Pours opaque black color with thick creamy brown head and great lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, milk coffee and licorice. Taste starts with medium sweet rich roasted malt and chocolate, follows by licorice, grass and mild fruit, mouthfeel is mild spicy, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium to full body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Classic stout with imperial taste... hauxe (864) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2017
Bottle thanks to wombat23. Pours virtually black from the bottle. Aroma is roasted coffee, chocolate, with strong tobacco smoke. Taste is bitter with a cherry undertone that is more sour than sweet. Body is medium with soft carbonation. Overall a very solid beer, but a tick short of great.
ttutony (927) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Dark brown nearly black. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Mid-full body. More chocolate roasted malt on the palate. Delicious spacecube (1740) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle, pours dark treacle brown, not much head, small off white lace. Aroma is a complex mixture of caramel, treacle, chocolate, roast, smoke, prune and raisin. Body is medium full, texture is full and viscous. Don’t think this needs to come out of the fridge, added complexity as it warms. Finish has great balance, with light malt sweetness which dried. Soft to flat carbonation. creppyiceman (953) - POLAND - MAY 20, 2017

Bottle - pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is boozy, licorice, molasses and sweet malt. Taste is roast malt up front with a dry mildly licorice malt finish. bastarda (506) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2017
"Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts" - which must have been brewed right to perfection for this only 6-percenter so packed with aroma and flavor and with such a perfect balance of roast and chocolate, bitter and sweet, licorice and coffee, and a superb mouthfeel. Oh wow!
