.65l bottle @ Vihreä Haltiatar
Pours thick pitch black with dark brown creamy head. Aroma is dark fruits, rye, roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is dark malts, ryeish after taste, brown sugar, alcohol, chocolate and bittery coffee. Swell!
Pours pitch black and gloopy. Tan head that fades rather quickly.
Aroma of toasted malts, bitter espresso beans, coffee, vanilla, brown sugar and caramelized malt.
Taste is sweet, mildly roasty, dark chocolate, vanilla beans and cocoa nibs. Very sticky on the lips. It gets a lot more roasty towards the aftertatse.
Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation. andrepintado (3331) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - JUN 25, 2017

Bottle. Black color, chestnut brown head. Beautiful, complex aroma with licorice and chocolate. Superbly smooth, long flavor that follows the aroma and adds espresso and lingering, juicy malts. Very full body, medium-light carbonation. Beautiful! Capa (3257) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2017
As black as the void of space the dark beige head. Intense roasted coffee beans, bittersweet dark chocolate, some black malt, molasses, light smoke. Full bodied and slick. Chewy. Ain’t no slouch. tomekboniek (763) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 11, 2017
Butelka. Sporo beczki, czekolady gorzkiej, mlecznej. Wysoko wysycone. Nuta alkoholowa widoczna w aromacie jak i w smaku. Troszkę lepsze od Rocky Mountain Doris.
OminouSC2 (650) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2017
Black color, large brown head. Aromas of chocolate, brownies, roasted malt, vanilla, caramel, oats and bread. Taste of roasted malt, herbs, bread, coffee, cacao, soy, tar and slight alcohol. The aromas differs quite a lot from the taste. Bitter finish. Solid. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2017
A: It’s so black it couldn’t be any more black. Mocha head. Legs.
N: Malted milk, cocoa, espresso, pine, ash, roast, some soy sauce, lots of peppercorns, molasses, earth.
T: Very sweet and very bitter.
M: Medium-heavy body, light alcohol burn, spritzy carbonation.
O: Spicy and earthy stuff. Yet, somehow, despite the intensity of the sweetness and the bitterness, I don’t find that they mesh all that well and it gets hard to drink because of this factor. Pilsnertest (294) - SWEDEN - APR 22, 2017
