COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

Bottle consumed at the Blind Monk. Caramel malt and chocolate aromas. Dark brown/black pour with a tan head. Caramel, bitter coffee, chocolate, and dark roasted malt aromas. Not a big fan of the name of this beer, but as far as taste go, it is pretty good.

A black beer, a head is medium and brown. Aroma has liquorice and salt liquorice, roastiness, sweetness, hint of alcohol. Taste has salt liqurice, balanced roastiness of coffee and sweetness, toffeeish maltyness, nice and drying bitterness, no alcohol anymore in taste. Full bodied, smooth, hint of stickyness. Rich, balanced, salt liquorice. Just a great beer.

PowY (975) - AUSTRIA - OCT 12, 2017
473 ml can. Pours oily and nearly black with a tan colored head. Aroma of roasted malt, rather mild, toffee, caramel, some coffee, molasses, some hazelnuts. Full creamy body with a low carbonation, a medium sweetness, a light bitterness and some warming alcohol. The aroma is full of roasted malt with lots of chocolate, coffee, molasses, hazelnuts, some dark fruits in the back and some subtle hops. Finishes roasty, bitter with notes of coffee and nuts and a lasting bitterness. Overall very nicely balanced and an excellent beer.

Franckg (1811) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2017
Canette. Robe noire comme la nuit et surmontée d'un col de mousse brun et rocailleux. Arômes de malt torréfié, chocolat noir, anis, mélasse et figues grillé, quelques effluves dagrumes secs. En bouche, chocolat et café, malt torréfié, figues, mûres séchées, alcool à fort pourcentage. Forte amertume mélangeant café et alcool, présence de zeste d'agrumes et retour du chocolat noir style fudge qui s'étire longuement en finale avec un petit goût boisé. Texture lisse mais un peu difficile à boire par le haut taux d'alcool, corps moyen à rond.

4.1

Aroma; roasted malt, black sugar, fruits n berries, coffee, big bowl of black malted candies. Look; light brown lowhead on jet black body. Taste; roasted black malts, dark fruit, liquorice n berries - juicy roasted choco-fruit'ish tail. Feel; good body, soft co2. Overall; good sipper. Though, somewhat overrated here. [smpl from a can]
