Fantastic aroma. Jet black in color and a very sweet taste. Stays on palate long after its swallowed. Great finish, great beer.
Aroma is dark chocolate, vanilla, figs, and mocha. Taste is thick roasted and sweet malts. Very deep and viscous. A very slow drinker. mauritsio (984) - FINLAND - OCT 15, 2017

(650ml bottle from boxbeers.dk) Pours black with a small and short-lived dark brown head that fades to nothing without lace. Aroma of molasses-heavy dark malt, coffee, bakers chocolate, chocolate pastry, glazing sugar, marzipan, moderately roasty, quite sweet overall, rather intense. Flavour is sweet but not as intense as I would have expected, with chocolate pastry/dough, muscovado, molasses, marzipan, vanilla extract, liqueur, light to moderate coffee, dark fruit, prunes, raisins, light roast. Finish is lingering doughnut/almond/extract confectionary notes and a little coffee, hint of alcohol. Kind of light and thin for style with almost no carbonation. Decent pastry-type stout, pretty sweet though, and without the heft to totally sustain its intentions. Bottle's a year or so old, that might be part of it. beerplace (1958) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 2, 2017
650ml bottle from the Park Royal LRS (thx, Jamey!). Pours a very dark brown with the same head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, fudge. Similar taste with moderate sweetness. Chocolatey and bready aftertaste. Very nice.

On tap at Muted Horn, Berlin. Comes with an nearly black, opaque color and a small tan head. Nice nose of vanilla, milk chocolate, toffee and some dried fruits. Taste is like a liquid donut: milk chocolate with nuts, sweet molasse, dried fruits. Full bodied. alex_leit (5025) - Minsk, BELARUS - AUG 15, 2017
