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!

Embrouille (2853) - - JAN 23, 2013
Bottled 33cl. Pitch black with a small deep beige head. Interesting reminiscence of banana split in the nose. Caramel, coffee and dark chocolate throughout. Full bodied. The alcohol is nicely hidden. Lovely but far from being great to my tastes.

Yummy, yummy Jesus. Waves of milk chocolate, black cherries, anise, raisin, and hints of clove and cola, with a strong espresso bitterness on the back end. Starts strong, boozy and sweet, yet the finish never grows cloy, instead mixing a java fade with a glowing liquor warmth. Deep, thick, and complex. Pours a gorgeous black with a dark brown head and ample lace. Massive chocolate and candied cherry nose. Warm, but at 13% it should be. Lovely.

1pint can. The beer poured pitch black with an espresso head. Roasted malt, molasses, syrup, chocolate and coffee notes. It is sweet but not the same stickyness these usually are. Balanced, round and smooth, abv nicely hidden. Some warmth of course. Oily, dark chocolate, coffee, syrupy, dark malts in flavors. Long long finish. Great sipper, but scaringly easy to drink.

Full bodied pitch black stout. Loaded with coffee, chocolate, sweet dark fruits and brown sugar. Perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness and between malts and hops. High complexity. Brilliant!

Wow. Pours a deep black color with a thick tan head that quickly dissipates. Nice lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, molasses, and brown sugar over booze. Taste is fantastic. An almost bitter baker’s chocolate is joined by the molasses and brown sugar for a complex flavor that goes down easy and starts a fire in the belly. That dryness of the dark chocolate makes for great mouth feel throughout. Nice long, semi-dry finish. I like everything about this beer.

Can. Z: nie za dużo się dzieje poza rozpuszczalnikiem i gorzka czekolada Roda z lekkiego dry stouta. S: pelny, lekki alkohol w spirytus który gdzieś pojawia się w tle, na pierwszym planie jednak gorzka czekolada z karmelowym nadzieniem. Trochę likierowy ulepek.

jandorris (690) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUL 7, 2017
W aromacie czekolada, kawa, cukier. W smaku jakby karmel z alkoholem, mimo wszystko spodziewałem się czegoś bardziej agresywnego, więc ocena in plus

MMJL (427) - Gliwice, POLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Z puszki zapach mało intensywny - głównie czekolada. W barwie nieprzejrzyście czarne, piana nikła, drobna, brązowa. W aromacie ze szkła pierniczki w czekoladzie z miodem i nadzieniem jagodowym :D Sos sojowy, maggi. Lekki szlachetny alkohol. Retronosowo garbnikowość orzechów włoskich, kwaśność palonych słodów. W smaku mega intensywne, palone, czekoladowe, gęste, owocowe, wyklejające. Palone aż po skojarzenia z wędzonką. Bardzo długi posmak. Goryczka zarówno od paloności jak i od chmielu. Alkohol świetnie ukryty.

DonGregorio (413) - POLAND - JUL 2, 2017
Shared bottle. Pitch black colour, creamy beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, dried fruits, licorice, peat, with notes of roasted malts, molasses. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light to medium bitter, chocolate, dried fruits, raisins, licorice, peat, light roasty. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation. Rich, flavourful, great RIS.
