Zlotta (3539) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2017
0.325 l bottle from 'Bier & Beer', best before January 2018. Black with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty and quite bready aroma of dark chocolate, caramel, licorice and grains. Quite sweet, malty, rather roasty and moderately bready taste of dark chocolate, licorice, grains, some coffee and hints of raisins, followed by a medium long, rather roasty-bitter, moderately earthy-dry and slightly bready finish. Medium to full body, slightly creamy and moderately effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very interesting, quite different from the original (fes) version, has a certain breadiness. blackisle (2707) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2017

Pours flat and resembles cola. Aroma of strong cold coffee. Tastes like stout with knobs on. Sweet finish with toffee ice cream flavours. Booze hidden by big flavour. This stuff will put hairs on your chest. DavyK (151) - East Kilbride, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2017
Bottle from Redmond’s. Big fan of this. There’s biscuit and raisin going on - it’s more than just strong Guinness, for sure. But the coffee-bitter thing is still there, in abundance, and that offsets the booziness. Cokemonkey11 (1000) - - APR 9, 2017
Bottle. Pours black and headless. Scent is ethanol on dense old ale, almost Belgian in style. Taste is consistent and quite on the plain side, with notes of cherry wood and sour berries. Slightly slimy. Very good.

Bottle. Dark brown, almost black color with small brown head. Aroma of alcohol, chocolate, coffee and dark rum. In flavor there are notes of chocolate, tobacco, maybe some orange also. Medium-full body. Sweet. Overall: nice one. Alcohol is well hidden. Maybe just a bit too sweet for me.
