650ml bottle enjoyed @ home, 2015 vintage, thanks to Brian Parker!. Pours pitch black with an average beige head. Aroma is cocoa and lots of it! Coffee, roasted malt, molasses, vanilla, dark bitter chocolate and caramel. Taste is medium+ bitter and medium sweet. Full bodied, smooth texture, average carbonation. Finish is cocoa and dark chocolate, quite bitter. Nische (2774) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2016
2014 Bottle at tasting, many thanks! Pours black with tan head. Lots of chocolate, roasted malt, slight coffee and vanilla. Taste follows the same with big chocolate notes, coffee, and some mild caramel beneath. Long, slightly bitter coffee finish. Very nice! Zeswaft (1788) - Edmonds, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2016
Bottle. Grabbed one off the shelf right out of the box. Instant buyers remorse when it rang up for $18. Sat in the fridge for about two months. Pours like a beautiful imp. stout. Aroma and flavor dominated by soy sauce. Some anise spice but not living up to the hype. kaser (6471) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 15, 2016

Tap. Pours an opaque black with tan head. Aroma and taste is roasted malts, coffee, some dark chocolate. hman43 (1972) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2016 It pours black with a dark brown head that has some lacing. It has strong chocolate aromas with coffee, roasted malts, and hints of hops. There are strong flavors of chocolate, roasted flavors, floral hops, and coffee. It has a heavy texture to it and has a strong aftertaste.
