Bottle shared in London - many thanks to C-Dog. Pours oily black with a creamy beige head. Rich chocolate on the nose with burnt marshmallows and burnt wood. Medium sweet flavor with lots of charred malts, dirt, rich chocolate, dark fruits. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming finish with further rich, complex chocolate character, decent roast, charred wood. Good stuff. Nice creamy, dark chocolate. Delicious. Rasmus40 (22048) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 11, 2015

Bottle from Birratrovo, Como Theydon_Bois (20873) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2014
Pitch black color with compact brownish head. Strong aroma of coffee and resiny hops. Thick mouthfeel; strong flavor of roasted malts and some coffee, not too ashy, with moderate residual sweetness and the hop qualities mostly hidden; strong bitterness. There is some lactose in the final.
Quite decent, but if you fancy coffee brews.
Bottle shared at Bruce’s pad, from Healthy Spirits in SF via Rilester who did some shopping for me, 16/01/14. mcberko (19172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Black with a good sized tan head that retains for a while before insisting on pond like behaviour!
Nose carries a good roast coffee blast, earthy, vanilla, dark toffee fudge, brown sugars.
Taste comprises roast coffee, chocolate, earthy, lick of booze, sweetish flavours.
Medium bodied, fine carbonationm sweetish closure but tempered by the roasty notes.
Decent coffee forward impy, well balanced and held together.
On tap at Stateside Craft, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out Belgian yeast, roasted malt and light cocoa. Flavour is very Belgiany, with loads of Belgian yeast and roasted malt, and a touch of vanilla. Extremely robust, with a rather light palate. Good stuff.
