Taste from a bottle at a party. Pours dark brown. Flavor is Coffee-forward but smooth with notes of chocolate and hazelnuts. Clean mocha finish with a touch of space. Good but not getting a ton of the barrel flavor. Fin (10698) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2017

Bottle [from trade, thanks whoever sent me this!] @ home. Opaque black color, medium sized brown head. Aroma is malts, chocolate, coffee. Taste malts, only subtle barrel aging, mocha, sweetish mainly but in the end a light bitter, mainly malt bitter. Medium to full body, fairly soft carbonation. Solid, yet way less impressive than the other beers from this series imo.

Bit too strong alcohol/burn. Nevertheless a very tasty beer! BlazerT (1193) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 17, 2017
Może stawać w szranki z Ethiopian. Mega beczka - wanilia, kokos, gładkie, niezwykle ułożone. Kawa szlachetna - bez paloności czy kwaskowatości. Poza tym mleczna czekolada, kakao, super praliny. Beczka na pierwszym planie, później lekkie nuty kawowe. Po ogrzaniu, więcej kawy, ale i więcej beczki. Słodkie od samego początku. Wow. Mega piwo numer jeden z serii, jak do tej pory. Wysoka nota jak na mnie, ale zasłużenie ;) markextrae (4448) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2017

Sampled as Cycle Brewing Anniversary Vietnamese Ɖa Làt Black beer, small tan ring. Coffee, (bitter) chocolate, but musky, and Bourbon-like vanilla. Sweet chocolate, coffee, again velvet/musk, and again sweet vanillabeans. Very well-bodied, MF as from cream; low carbonation. I like this, and this (coffee infused) not being my favourite type of beer, that is saying something. mariuspoenari (2846) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2017
UPDATED: APR 2, 2017 Bottle shared. Pitch black pour with a thin espresso head. Notes of cocoa, chocolate, coffee, bourbon, coconut, vanilla, sourness from the barrel or coffee.
