Earthy burnt smell. Very little mocha aftertaste a little chocolate. Slight bitter but smooth and dry. Need to try again, can't quite peg it.

Pours black with a lasing tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee grounds, and a little alcohol. Taste is pretty standard stout - coffee, chocolate, roast. Finishes with an alcohol sting. A little thin on the tongue. jesperhammer (4735) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2012
14-DEC-2012, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer.
Dark brown with lasting tan head.
Restrained roasted aroma. Taste is roast, chocolate, prunes. Finish is bitter. Soft carbonation, sweet, medium body. OK drink. RexTalionis (3750) - FINLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Bottled. Pours black in color with a tan head. Roasted coffee, dark chocolatey notes, sweetish syrup and
some wooden notes in aroma. Quite smooth even if sligthly thick mouthfeel and feels a bit raw. Coffee
liqour, burnt wood, roasted malty notes in taste. A bit harsh though on the whole. Sweet sugary notes, some coffee
and wood in finish. Fletchwadd (49) - Riverview, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Pours out super dark almost black leaving dark tan head. Aroma is of a roasted malt and coco. Taste is of a coffee and leaving almost a tangy aftertaste. Decent brew

330 ml bottle.ARH (1125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Pours a black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, cream and some berries. Flavour of roasted malts, red berries, some herbal bitterness and yeast. Some honey-like sweetness as well. Medium bodied, thin but smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes sweet and slightly roasty.
330mL can poured into a 12oz snifter. Very abundant tropical fruit flavors jump out of this and hit the nose immediately. Underneath that, there’s some caramel and lactose nose with a very mellow smokiness. It’s a black-dark opaque beer with, initially a thick foamy head, which sticks around for a while, but ultimately reduces to literally nothing - needless to say, this beer doesn’t lace. It’s medium-heavy on the sweetness with a very light hop-like bitterness. Oranges and cream comes to mind on the tongue. There’s very little to no carbonation on this light bodied beer (relative to other heavy stouts, I guess) which is smooth, creamy, and very clean; although it does finish with a bit of milk chocolate and a very mellow hop bittering. cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2014
Couleur noir avec un mince col brun résistant. Nez intense de malt grillé,pain grillé,café. En bouche un mélange un peu amère de malt grillé pain grillé café un peu de chocolat et de resine. Une stout mis complexe qui se boit bien, mais elle n’est pas dans mes top, un peu surévalué! MarkoNm (2740) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - FEB 20, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2015 Pours with a deep black color and a medium tan colored head with moderate retention.
The aroma is very pleasant and inviting. Roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and some coffee.
Tastes bittery and roasted, with some coffee and little caramel in the back.
Very drinkable, creamy and full of taste. mintzmeet (457) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2014
honestly smells pretty bad. smells like rotten sugar cane. strong coffee flavor, but surprisingly light. very alcoholic
