Pours mahogany tinged black into an English pint. Mocha head with excellent retention craters and recedes leaving sheet lacing. Chocolate and espresso aromas. Medium to thin with dark chocolate covered pit fruit upfront turning to roasted nuts and expresso in the lasting finish.

Nez trs quilibr et riche : chocolat, caf, des notes herbaces, un fond fum avec de jolies notes caramlises. Bouche somme toute amre, de lattaque jusqu la longueur. Attaque torrfie, notes trs herbaces et trs vertes, qui prennent bien lensemble de la bouche et donne son caractre la bire et toute sa longueur avec la torrfaction.

ajnepple (6313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2016
11.5 oz single bottle from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. 0 and 3 are notched on the label so Im not sure of its age. Almost black in appearance with a big tan head. The aroma is moderately to heavily malty (roasted grain, bitter chocolate), light to moderately yeasty (black peppercorns) and lightly hoppy (citrus zest). Similar flavor, adding hints of earthiness and light coffee. Fairly bitter with a medium body and a lingering, light dry finish. Interesting.

TET (2957) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2016
An almost black beer, a head is big and light brown. Aroma has riped fruits, citrusfruits, some strawberries, liquirice. Also saison like spicyness and hint of mint. Interesting and great aroma. Taste has fruitness, spicyness, medium bitterness, roastiness, some liquirice in the end. Quite dry. Medium+ bodied, strong carbonation. Its difficult to say which style this beer is but thats not important because the great beer is in hte glass. Fruitness and roasted flavours.
