Bottle from Canada, merci Mathieuc! Pours a chalky dark black, thick as oil with a meanness to it. To borrow a line from Todd, I would cross the street if I saw this beer walking towards me. Strong aromas of coal, smoke, roast and some black unknown component that makes its presence felt through its sheer will. This beer will dominate you if you let it. This beer would make a cigar city stout cry for its mommy, cradled in the fetal position waiting for Florida homers to rescue it with their overinflated ratings. In short, this beer pulls no punches. There is so much smokey roast in here it’s almost hard to believe. Where the hell are the high ratings for this beer? This beer makes baller stout look like a $1 bill. Jesus. If you don’t like this beer, then you don’t like beer. thick, black, dark, smoke, roast, hops, coffee, chocolate, cigarette butts. This is world class.
Bottle. Pours a nearly black, dark red-brown with a beige head. Rather reluctant aroma with some sweetish roasted malt, nutty, toffee. (Only !) Medium body with a light sweetness and a medium bitterness. The flavor is full of heavily roasted malt - coffee, dark chocolate, wood, ash, earthy notes. Weird - did not fully convince me.

50 cl bottle. BB July 23rd 2025 (!!). It's like pouring engine oil. Jet black, lively carbonation and aggressive pour creates a medium tan to mocca coloured head. Aromas of dark, bitter chocolate, plum, fig and raisin. Full body, thick and dense, medium carbonation, bitter finish. Flavour is mostly about roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, some residual sweetness like honey or melasses. Gold medal in Brussel and Stockholm, silver in San Diego, all in 2011/12. For me personally, it's a bit too high in ABV. rumore (706) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 5, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours fully black with brown foam, very fine. Aroma is not that much, mostly roasted coffee. Body is strangely light but quite sticky at the same time. Some carbonation. Taste had some initial sweetness, but most of all quite a bitter character coming from roster malt mostly. Finish is long, bitter and sticky. saintbase2 (862) - Bydgoszcz, POLAND - AUG 24, 2017

En meget stærk øl, der desværre er lidt for syrlig og besk., lidt et fejlskud fra ellers godt bryggeri

Piwo wypite jakiś czas temu. Ocena wystawiona na podstawie wspomnień z degustacji, w ramach uzupełnienia profilu. Holmen1 (6308) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2017
Fra flaske på DØE ølfestival, Lokomotivværkstedet mai-17: kullsort med ok skum. Aroma og smak som 80%sjokolader, luxuskaffe, honning og vanilje. Halvtørr og overraskende mild bitterhet for sine 120 IBU. Alt for lettdrikkelig, her gjelder det å passe seg. DuffMan (10610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2017
Bottle, shared at game night. Nearly black, moderately viscous pour. Chocolate liqueur, espresso, light char, something dusty/minerally, with a long bitter finish. MarcoDL (5306) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2017
Bottle. Black pour, creamy head. Aroma of licorice, nuts, chocolate, creamy caramelised malt and coffee. Taste of bitter coffee, chocolate, licorice, nuts, honey, caramelised malt and a bittersweet finish. Solid. Gebels (92) - Gdańsk, POLAND - APR 22, 2017
In aroma dominating dark chocollate and coffee scent’s, may be a bit of caramel. In taste chocollate and in the and caramel, solid bitterness, could have more body, medium carbonation, not bad at all
