Bottle from beerbods Pours dark bron with a thin persisting bubbly Head. Malty, licorice aroma with a hint of something I can’t place - something metallic/coca-y?. Sharp palette, pine-y, hop bitterness, cofeee, chocolate, roasted grains. Well made, but im not a hgue fan of the style - just not sure bittering adds much to a dark beer simontomlinson (521) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2017

Bottle from Beerbods. Pours very dark brown/black, tan head, thin, modest carbonation. Charred, coffee-ish aroma. Dry taste, some coffee, chocolate, roasted grains. Nice, but it fades a little after the first few mouthfuls. mabuzzer (875) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2017

Pours a dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is a mix of malts, chocolate and citrus hops. Flavour is slightly bitter with roasted malts and a slight fruitiness from the hops. GSAP (755) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2016
Smaak van druiven, licht bitter met kruid en wat pittig. Lange nasmaak is een plus. Donkere kleur, hoe verrassend. mutz (1092) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2016
Zwart van kleur, weinig kraag. Ruikt naar druiven gemengd met koffie . Smaakt idem, vrij bitter. Interessante smaak. Medium body.
