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. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 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 (4424) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2017
Sample from bottle shared by a friend. Poured dark black with a tanned ring. Nose of roast, bitter cacao, vanilla Cream, oak, hot bourbon notes, green pepper. Taste is harsh, pepper spice coffee chocolate, and hot. Expected more JorisPPattyn (10002) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 2, 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.
