Very dark brown, mid-tan head. Roasty aroma concentrated with light-roast coffee. Flavor is full-on coffee, pretty dry. Lots of acidity and seems kinda a one-trick pony with the coffee roastiness. A little bit of medicinal flavor. Thin, tart finish with a lot of malt dustiness and prominent alcohol. Comes across as a dry kahlua.
Bottle. Black. Malt, roast and ash in the aroma. Malty sweet roasty flavor with caramel and laurel. Slightly alcoholic. Full bodied. Solid imperial stout. Nisse666 (7681) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2017

Bottle at tasting. Black pour. Aroma of licorice, booze, coffee and cream. Taste has lots of licorice, chocolate, cream and booze. Too much licorice for me. onceblind (10101) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2017
3+ years aged. Heavy deep dark brown hue with a thin light tan cap. Big rich roasty black malt nose with dark cocoa and a gentle licorice/molasses note, a kiss of coffee and burnt brown sugar. Smooth sweet flavor with some black malt roastiness and a smooth velvety licorice coffee undertone. A tad earthy sweet and velvety licorice-ish and cocoa-y.
