Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, coffee, licorice and alcohol. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, chocolate, caramel, licorice and of course alcohol. It had a medium sweet finish with a little bitterness. Decent.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2017 Butelka. Ciężko dowiedzieć się o dacie przydatności do spożycia. Barwa smoliście czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Brak piany. Aromat mało intensywny po ogrzaniu nabiera charakteru i staje się intensywny. Mocno palony, czekoladowy, kawowe. Wyczuwalne nuty orzechw. Smak zdecydowanie wytrawny. Analogicznie jak w aromacie ale z większą mocą. Mocno palone, czekoladowe. Finisz palony, przyjemnie zalegający. Wysycenie w kierunku wysokiego, punktowe. Goryczka niska. Alkohol świetnie ułożone, mega pijalne. Konsystencja oleista.

Dobre piwo ale nie urywające niczego.

12oz bottle. Fudge. Lots of fudge. Almost nothing else. No hint of alcohol, which is too bad because it might cut through the fudge.
