Deep brown beer. Aroma is sweet, earthy and a little bit boozy There is a bit of soft cocoa and herbal character. Very sweet with caramel and light milk chocolate. Flavour is quite thin though... pretty boozy as well. Not really bad, but not great either. solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2013
A little n the sweet and boozy side for me. Caremelized malt is thick with a little roast. Finishes with some burnt taste and sweetness. Malt heavy, very light hops. Pours dark mahogany with good head and lacing. Consistency a little syrupy. Botte. Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2008
Pours deep garnet with semi big bubbled tan head. The aroma has notes of dark fruity esters like prunes, figs and dates as well as licorice, burnt malts, some notes of earthiness and a faint hotness on the nostrils. The taste is nice with bold yet even with approachably smooth earthiness mixing with chocolate and burnt malts. Those flavors are followed by an under current of dark fruity esters that tie the taste together nicely. It ends with residual dark fruitiness but mostly roasty malts and fading earthiness. Very pleasing combination of notes creating a very tasty brew. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2006
Bottled – GBBF. A blackish beer with a red hue. The aroma is wonderful with lots of licquorice and caramel as well as alcohol and soy sauce. The taste is full and has all the characteristics of the aroma beautifully balanced. Very very drinkable and tasty. Truly delicious and my beer of the Festival.

Portland, Or - Beaumont Market - 500 ml bottle. Sparkling, dark brown pour, bubbly, long lasting mocha head. Rich chocolate and molasses in the aroma. Bold flavor, anise seed, milk chocolate, some molasses. Mouthfeel is thinner than the flavor warrants.

500. Pours black. Dense, creamy, billowing tan head that falls quickly to sloppy loose foam and dense sheets of tan lace. Big roasty sweet milk chocolate nose, a little bit of coffee and malt sugar lurking around the edges there. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Chocolatey mid-palate, again with bits of coffee, malt sugar, and now bits of roast knocking around. Mild earthy finish. Nice, if a bit unspectacular....the amount of flavor here for 9.4 is really a waste of potential, harmonious though it be. Nisse666 (7984) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2010
