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!

Svart öl med ett mörkbrunt skum. Doft av choklad, rostad malt och karamell. I smaken tillkommer mörkt socker, mörka frukter, lätta sojatoner och viss alkoholvärme.

aardvark1 (147) - POLAND - SEP 20, 2017
Bardzo szybko opadająca, bardzo ciemna piana, barwa właściwie czarna. W nosie bardzo "ciepła", intensywna mieszanka - przede wszystkim kakao, dalej kawa, syrop klonowy, zero alkoholu. W smaku czuć potężne ciało, jest bardzo gęste. Dominuje słodkości, taka gorzka czekolada z cukierkami Kopiko i syropem klonowy. Alkohol w smaku jest właściwie niewyczuwalne, ale intensywnie rozgrzewa przełyk. Bardzo dobre

Laharem (15) - POLAND - SEP 18, 2017
Smoliście czarne, ładna brązowa piana. W aromacie dominuje kawa i gorzka czekolada. Smak to przede wszystkim świetna gorzka czekolada wspierana nutami kawowymi. Piwo grzeje w przełyk, alkohol jest nieźle ukryty, aczkolwiek wyczuwalny.

473ml can @ Kelly's Cabin. Thanks dabeerbuddha. Pours opaque black with a decent tan head. Nose is roasted malts and dark fruits. Flavour is moderately sweet, mildly roasted, some dark fruits. So smooth and loving its in a can, very good stuff.

Canned condition. Pours jet black with 1 finger dark tan to brown head, glorious looking stuff. Aroma is as rich as it looks with roasted nuts and malt, paired with cocoa fragrance makes for a boozie brownie like nose. Taste is dark chocolate and coffee as expected, a little burnt toast which hampers with the flavour so slightly before the chocolatey aftertaste arrives. Finish brings a boozy warmth, maybe on the very edge of excess. Silky, mouthfeel with low carbonation keeps incentives high and yields a medium to full body. Pint can will undoubtedly lead you on a trip to the bin.
