Pitch black with a thin tan head. Notes of roasted malts, dark chocolate, smoke, ash, burnt coffee beans, prunes, bitter cherries. Intense roast and chocolate flavours. Full body, low carbonation, smooth mouthfeel. tandembrauer (1526) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 31, 2017
On tap at Gulating Pub, Stavanger. Pours black with dense beige head. Aroma of chocolate, herbs, fruity notes. Tastes bitter with quite some sweetness. Medium bodied, bitter finish. mieszal92 (297) - Gliwice, POLAND - AUG 15, 2017
Tap in Gulating, served too cold.
Pours black, ruby reflections. Lack of any head.
Nose: sweet-spicy, pastries, coffee, little of dried prune. The aroma is a little bourbon-like, barrelly. Aroma is sweet. And taste is dry. Very boozy. Watery and empty, hasn’t opened too much with warming up. I would believe there was any weird, forgotten fruits’ jam addition. Cybuch (478) - Muszyna, POLAND - AUG 14, 2017
W aromacie czekolada, szlachetny alkohol, kakao, palonosc. Barwa bardzo ciemny braz, piana ladna, pozostajaca. W smaku bardzo wytrawne, kawowe. Spodziewalem sie troche czegos innego. Alkohol nie wyczuwalny w smaku, ale rozgrzewa konkretnie. Fajny RIS, brakuje gestosci i slodyczki, btw goryczka srednia do wysokiej. Dobre, ale nie do konca w moich preferencjach.

0,5l bottle at home. BB 21.09.2020. black color, small coffee colored head. smells earthy, brown sugar, bit milky, light berry notes, light oxidation, lightly nutty. nice smell overall. full body, light carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes earthy, tons of peat & ash, grassy, milky, peppery, nutty, marzipan, did not like it at first. but after a bit of warming up, some sugary, berry, grassy and more sweet earthy notes come through. finishes lightly sweet with notes of earth, sugar and grassy notes. did not like the taste at first when it was rather cold. after warming up its not a bad beer, drinakble but still rather heavy. a bit on the sugary side (when warm).

Helt svart med beige, kremete skum. Lukter kaffe, lakris og nøtter. Mye det samme i smaken sammen med karamell og noe mørke bær. Herlig, tykk munnfølelse. nearbeer (5514) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 16, 2017
500 ml Batch 973 bottled Apr. 2016. Inky black with the creamiest non-nitro head ever seen. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark toffee, dark bread, dark fruit, graham cracker, real licorice and a touch of blackberry. Flavors of the same mix plus some espresso with cream, roasted nut, char and ash. Medium-heavy body is silky smooth with low-medium carbonation and the most dangerous drinkability, with no hint of the 11%. I guess my ratebeer quest is over, this is my only perfect score ever given. geolgau (357) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - JUL 11, 2017
Aroma is an intense chocolate cake, liquor and had a nice smokiness that works very well. Full bodied, creamy, the taste has a chocolate overload, with some slight nuts and smoke notes. Silky, balanced and complex, enjoyed every sip of it. josanguapo (1794) - SPAIN - JUL 8, 2017
From 32 Great Power. In Teku glass. Watching House of Cards 1x13-2x01. Everything well balanced, with the alcohol well integrated.As time passes, its bitterness start to increase but without breaking the balanced feeling ironcontra (361) - POLAND - JUL 6, 2017
Nice beige head, not that much on the nose but great dry chocolate, leather, earthy, even somewhere somewhat tart taste. Indeed decently high body w/o being oily. I like it
