aroma of coffee, dark dried fruit, and alcohol. A big, chewy beer. Roasty up front, then coffee, chocolate, plum skins. Nicely balanced finish, wth lingering earthy hop and roast flavours - very drinkable.

bottle at Kulminator - Pours near black with a big tan head that laces nicely. The aroma is of roast malt and chocolate with a hint of coffee. It tastes of sweet roast malt with mild hops leading into a dry, hoppy, coffee accented finish. It looks great as a Guinness should and to me itís definitely better than the extra stout and draught.

A gift from Donfardz64! Cheers mate.
Fluffy brown head that dissipates
Intense chocolate malt with figs and dates. Some alcohol. Has a bready yeast on the nose, with slight vinous elements, coffee and licorice.
Very fruity tastes (plum and prune) and quite strong alcohol. Nice middle bitterness. Begins fruity and candy sweet, middle is bitter with mild hops, finish is dry with hoppy notes and some bitterness.
Would be an almost perfect beer if cigar and good friend were present.

Black. Has a light-brown head, fully lasting. Aroma of sweet caramel. Good flavor, heavy bitter. Medium to full body, dry, creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Too big a difference between the sweet caramel aroma and the heavy bitter flavor.
