4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Massive malty aroma. Black color, small head. Hops mixes very well with the malty taste. Rather bitter, even if it doesn’t taste like 75 IBU:s. Stong (9.5% ABV). To be enjoyed in small slowly and preferrably shared.
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2018 In aroma: chocolate, roasted coffee and a bit of vanilla. Deep black color. Beer has thick consistency and nice brownish head - very nice lacing. In the taste at the first place comes roasted malt and roasted coffee, then a bit of toffee and caramel - light sweetness. Then comes massive but pleasent bitterness. Alcohol is nicely hidden. Big beer.

Tasted 2018-01-02. Fresh bottle. Pours black with dark brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, fresh hops, liquorice and pumpernickel. Creamy texture. Powerful coffee-bitternes along with notes of vanilla. Very well balanced and definately up there with the very best stouts. Spab (4225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2017
650 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a virtually black colour with moderate-sized mocha-coloured head. Aroma is dark and roasty with espresso, pepper, anise and leather. Flavour has lots of roastiness, verging on charredness with spicy coffee, pepper, leather and anise. Slick mouthfeel. Nice.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2017 Mörk med mörkt skum. Doftar av beska från kakao och choklad. Smaken inkluderar kaffe, choklad, nougat och är väldigt höstig i karaktären. Dracks som sällskapsdryck utan tillbehör. Nästa gång ska den drickas till något i stil med choklad, kola eller nougat. colui72 (1158) - HONG KONG - DEC 25, 2017
Pours pitch black, thick, with a large brown head and circular lacing. Strong roasted malts aroma, with coffee and chocolate. Tastes sweet-bitter, strong roasted barley, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, leather, dark fruits. Good bitter and fruity hops to balance. Very thick beer, viscous, low carbonation and long roasty finish. Excellent. anstei (2745) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 22, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2017 Bottle. Pours black with a dark beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, green peppers. Body is heavy, sweet and bitter. Low carbonation, a bit burnt. Peppers again, coffee and chocolate, very dark. Good! rjplumer (1237) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 22, 2017
The aroma has elements of roasted coffee, chocolate malt. The body has a used black motor oil look. The head is robust brown stubbornly sticks to the glass.It has a bitter start and is followed by a bold roasted coffee malt taste. Has a thick viscous feel. Has a somewhat chalky cocoa finish. Has a hint of booziness in the background. sawbuck (779) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 16, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 Complex aroma... too much going on. Nice ebony color. Chocolate Nd some spices. Dry finish. Ok.
