Giochaurand (533) - FINLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Tap. Pours opaque and with low head. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee. Taste is soft sweet and bitter with coffee. Served maybe a bit too cold to properly get more flavours.

Cask gravity at Le Gothic’s Wandsworth Beer Festival on 26 Oct 2012. Poured black, with a scummy beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, vanilla and condensed milk. Full mouth feel. Semi-sweet flavours of liquorice, fruit cake and molasses, with some ash. Finish was burnt malt, coffee and treacle.

allmyvinyl (10613) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Cask at The Hanging Bat. Pours black, thick, long-lasting tan head. Aromas of coffee and chocolate, light liquorice tang. Taste brings a light fruit sweetness, but mostly more chocolate. Rich and creamy mouthfeel. Really very nice.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. It pours a very dark brown body, clear-looking and with a small, dense, dark beige to light tan head. The aroma has some roasted malts and bonfire hints, with milk chocolate and a pleasant hoppy touch. It’s medium bodied and with a very soft carbonation level. Some licorice notes in the flavor, with roasted malts, bonfire and milk chocolate, and a nice hoppy bitterness in the back. Lasting roasted finish with piney and citrusy hops blending in. Sure a nice one, very tasteful and at the same time easy drinkable. 140816

3.7
worldbeertaste (1805) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Black with a tan head. Smells of deep roast, coffee and dark berries with chocolate. Medium roast with a dry berry finish. The smell is deeper than the taste. But nice nonetheless.
