Thanks to slikwily for this brew. Pours jet black with some mahagony hints near the glass edge and sports an averaged sized light brown creamy head. Some spotty lacing. Aroma is mixture of dark roasted coffee and chocolate with malt and a hop nose. Initial flavor is warm dark roasted coffee with a slighlty burnt maltiness. The flavor finishes hoppy and dry. Dark and full-bodied palate. Christian (13930) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2007
Black with very small head. Caramel aroma with a hint of apple. Thin and roast flavour. Maybe I was expecting too much, but I was quite disappointed. hopdog (13258) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2005

Black. Toasted grains. Like a weak coffee with sugar. Alcohol burn taste, guess this is 6% plus. Bit of burnt bitter aftertaste.
Basically a passable beer with some oatmeal. Not the best expression of this style. Could be a whole lot smoother.
Thanks to Sir Pigfoot.
