Kauge (1708) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle from LCBO. BB Nov 2017. Pours dark brown with modest light tan head that drops rather fast. Licorice on the nose. Pretty sweet. Like sweet licorice and cocoa powder and coffee, plus some ashiness and earthy notes. Tastes sweet, dark dried fruits like figs and dates, also pears? But the licorice familiar from aroma is distracting, the aniseed appears minty fresh on the tongue which I find a bit strange but then again, it might work well in Sri Lanka heat. Somewhat watery on the palate initially but improves as it warms, eventually getting a bit sticky even. Carbonation moderate. Overall its quite robust and inelegant but not bad. Lets say exotic.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Black color with beige foam. Prune nose. Very nicely balanced taste with prune and a mild and calm light sweet taste and a little roasty touch. Calm and mild aftertaste.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Unexpected greatness from a 24 pack. Pours black with a big creamy tan head. Aroma is of roasted barley, coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Tastes of dark chocolate, roasted barley, espresso with a sourness and burnt notes. This beer was so smooth with a slick medium body and low carbonation. Good at hiding its alcohol and very warming.

artemb (830) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - APR 21, 2016
Look: black with dark unstable head. Aroma: strong coffee, molasses. Taste: light to moderate sweet with light hoppy bitterness. Overcarbonated like a Coke. Flavour: strong coffee, chocolate, sweet wine, some grassy hops, prominent alcohol. Not bad but too much CO2.
