Black color, no head, oily. Mild aroma, beyond the alcohol there is hazelnuts, roasted nuts, light liquorice. Full bodied, oily; very nice chocolate flavor, hints of liquorice, tar, hints of berry juiciness; sugars stick on the lips.
Very nice drink.
330ml bottle @ the office. Pours an opaque block with a thin beige head. Nose is cocoa and booze. Flavour is sweet molasses and soy sauce with a somewhat roasty/toasty malt not quite bitter finish. Interesting and smooth. Ferris (16274) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2017
Bottle - Molasses and dark sweet chocolate. Jet black brown with a small white head. Sweet dark malts and a long finish. Dark and sweet, heat and little bitterness. Oakes (18517) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2017
Dark brown. No head. On the nose, it's rich and tarry. Soft, sweet, molasses, tarry, and burnt dates. Alcohol is actually masked. Sweet, some soft tarry notes, and this is a nice brew, with dates. To me, it's okay. mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 20, 2017
330mL bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is loaded with soy sauce, followed by roast, some cocoa and booze. Loads of soy sauce characterizes this. Oily palate. Fun stuff. weordie (1352) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2017
Pours black with a cocoa head. Strong cocoa powder aroma with a hint of the alcohol hit ahead. Really smooth. Boozy currants, chocolate, sweet milk. A phenomenal beer.
