Bottle, 9%. OK sweet liquorice aroma. Clear very dark brown colour. The flavour has some salty liquorice, a little fruit. yespr (49173) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2009
66 cL bottle. Pours almost clear and golden deep amber with a two finger thick and brown head. Roasted malt and slight yeasty aroma. Fruity and roasted malty with a mild earthy to smoked touch - vague infection. Herbal and spiced from back of the nose. Mild sweet and fruity finish with a mild citric note. Evolving infection yet still good. harrisoni (19726) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Sampled at Zythos 2009. Very deep ruby colour with lasting tan head. Good dark fruit beer, lovely choccy aroma. I was impressed with this. Good aroma, good body. 17thfloor (2444) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Tried twice on draft at Zythos 09. Pours a very dark near black dark red/brown with a large thick frothy off-white head. Rich licorice aroma with notes of chocolate, plums and lightly fruity. Flavor is straight black licorice at first, followed by a touch of rich chocolate and dark fruits. Very true flavor, rich and perplexing. Dull (in a good way) creamy mouthful, very consistent with light subtle fine carbonation. Great beer!

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2009 Draught at Zythos, St Niklaas, Belgium, 08-03-09 Pours dark brown with a beige head. Light roasty nose maybe some smoke. The taste is a little spirity initially, some coffee dregs, a bit clingy, some chocolate and spirit again, its fine. I had a little taste of this the day before from Ray’s glass and preferred it then but not so keen on it today A6 A3 F6 P3 OV12 3.0 I had this again picking up a bottle at Dranken Geers, Gent, Belgium 31-10-09 and consuming it later that day in camper at Guines France. Pours hazy amber with an off-white filmy head. Plenty of malt and dark sugars on the nose. Really tasty beer and much better than when I had this last time. Good body to this, soft but warming in mouth. There is a little nuttiness in the mouth, dark sticky molasses, its nice stuff. A7 A4 F8 P4 Ov15 3.8 thewolf (12992) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2009

Pours almost completely black with slight red edges. A great, small, creamy, yellowish head on top. Aroma is roasted, has chocolate, malts, yeast and cocoa. Low carbonation, great frothy mouthfeel. Flavour is quite
sweet, some coffee, roasted malts and a fine hoppiness. Fabolous, long aftertaste of coffee, softly roasted malts, plums and a touch of milky chocolate. Very nice!
