2016 version. A brooding, heavyweight stout, crammed with intense, deep-roast specialty malts. A recipe 8 months in the making with multiple edits before we were happy to proceed, in the end it was a delight to brew.

CanCrusher (1099) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - AUG 26, 2017
Bottle 0,33L. Black color with small, creamy, light brown head that sits down to the crown fast. Strong coffee and dark chocolate dominate in aroma. There are some roasted malts in the background, too. Taste is medium to heavy bitter with a lot of bitter dark chocolate. Can’t find any alcohol in aroma, neither in taste, although it has 10% ABV. Excellent beer!

33cl bottle. Pitch black with a medium beige head. Full body with low carbonation. Somewhat sweet with nice bitterness. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, caramel and some spices. Nice!

3.8
dzudohonor (228) - POLAND - JUN 16, 2017
Piękna zbita, brązowa piana, czarne. W aromacie palone słody, kawa, kakao, gorzka czekolada i likierowość. Smak to w zasadzie powtórka z aromatu, gorzkie, wytrawne, palone, dość gęste. Niezły RIS.
