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.

Aromat palony, lekko kakaowy. Smak lekko słodki, średnio gorzki. W smaku paloność, mocna kawa, gorzkie kakao, dosyć wyraźny alkohol.

Kita (2016) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle, 0.355l. Pitch black color with thin frothy quickly diminishing brown head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, caramel, wood and alcohol. Taste starts with moderate sweet and rich roasted malt and chocolate, follows by sweet licorice and slightly dry cocoa, mouthfeel is warming alcoholic, while finish is moderate bitter. Full body, thick texture and average to lively carbonation in palate. Pretty much as expected, just excellent...

Cybercat (5387) - Georgia, USA - NOV 19, 2016
Pours opaque coffee brown with a serviceable tan head. Aroma offers molasses, roast malt, quality coffee and chocolate tones. Flavor nicely echoes the aroma while sticking in some evergreen hops. Firm moutfeel has good fizz. Plead for a bottle.
