BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Thick black beer with a one-finger light brown head that fades to a respectable ring. Smells of sweet caramel and roasty dark malts with hints of marzipan and vanilla. Sweet caramelly maltiness thats almost immediatley balanced by a bitter hops. The finish is a bit rough with the substantial hop bitteness and dark malts amplifying an astringency. 8% abv beer with medium-full bodied mouthfeel that doesnt come of sticky or filmy.

Szulo (1) - Pock, POLAND - DEC 5, 2016 does not count
Piana po nalaniu przyjmuje kształt bardzo ładnej, beżowej koronki, samo piwo ciemne, wręcz nieprzejrzyste. Przyjemny aromat kawy oraz paloności. W smaku podobnie z dodatkową czekoladową słodyczą. Wysycenie średnie w kierunku niskiego, dla mnie w punkt. Niezwykle pijalne, b. dobre piwo.

Lovely scent of sweetness and chocolate. Celestial good taste of coffee, chocolate, sweetness and a little soy sauce. Wonderful bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Enjoyable beer. Very pleasant to drink. Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Tap @ Fermentoren. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma of dark sweet malts, coffee, slight smoke, and roasted notes. The taste is sweet and slight smoky, roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate and some liquorice. Pretty awesome sweet stout!

KoNrRiI (1264) - rhus, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2016

0.33 bottle.
Black color with a small, brownish head of good retention. A rich aroma of dark malts, dark chocolate, forest fruits, wood, some caramel, and a bit of oats. Taste is obviously malty, sweet, chocolaty, woody - not as rich as the aroma but still good. A full body, a thick texture, and an almost flat carbonation. Finish is medium long and less sweet, some molasses appears whereas most of the initial complexity vanishes. Overall the beer is good but it seems to diminish as one progresses with the tasting.

Rask0lnikov (866) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 10, 2016
On tap at RCBW 2016. Dark brown, almost black colour. Small, beige head. Lots of chocolate, creamy notes, slight sweetness, very slight hints of vanilla in the aroma. Chocolaty, creamy beginning. Rather bitter in the middle. Bit smoke, burnt caramel in the end. Creamy texture. Rather medium bodied, quite interesting beer. Maybe even too less body.

Marduk (6608) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2016
Tap @RCBF 2016. Pitch black color. Small size, brown head, stays. Dark chocolate, sweet, fruity, cocoa beans and malty in aroma. Malty, dark chocolate, some hops, sweet, caramel and roast in taste. Hopping is very nice. Long lasting roast and dark chocolate in aftertaste. Very easy to drink. Alcohol is hidden. Very solid brew.

Vells (1630) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - AUG 25, 2016
Superb full bodied brew for such a low ABV. Usually I like intense hard hitters, but this one is soooo smooth, coffee, cocoa, vanilla, some pine hop kick. MOderate to light sweetness with moderate bitterness Bomb
