Bottle shared at at tasting. Thanks Tim! Pours a deep black with ruby highlights. Roasted malt, light roasted coffee, dark fruit and soy sauce on the nose. Taste is roasty with some light sweetness. Easy drinking with a dry and slightly fruit-forward sour finish. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 17, 2015

Negro con reflejos caoba.espuma beis densa. Aromas de chocolate, tabaco, café. Cuerpo medio, inicio dulce achocolatado, con final de amargor acafetado suave. jc1762 (1547) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 21, 2015
On tap into a shaker showing pitch black with sparse white foam.
The nose shows extremely subtle latte notes.
The palate is light bodied and extremely well carbonated - it’s mostly just a mouth full of foam. Shows dark chocolate with very light coffee flavors more akin to a latte. Bitterness is also light and easy like a latte. 55x11 (85) - - JUL 10, 2015
Pours black. Or very dark brown whitish head. Aroma of smoke chocolate and malt. Taste of bitter chocolate, bourbon, toffee

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver; 414mlmcberko (18429) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
Dark brown color, served with no head. Aroma of dark malts, cocoa powder, impression of chemicals (phenol). Lean body, despite the high initial gravity; the flavor focuses too much in dark caramel, with a clear presence of heavily roasted nuts in the final; light residual sweetness. Rather simple in its conception.
It’s a decent beer, but I regret getting a large glass of it.
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours jet black with a small tan head. Nose brings out rich notes of chocolate upfront, followed by roast and some dry cocoa powder. Flavour is similar, bringing out a rich balanced palate of cocoa powder and roasted malt, with a touch of coffee and even smaller touch of vanilla. Robust and impeccably balanced big beer. Excellent.
