500ml bottle from Cornelius bought way back. Gyle 100. Bb may 2014. Brown black, big foamy head that settles to creamy tan. Soft coffee, light caramel, chocolate. Softer fizz than I remember from first tasting. Mellow chocolate, sweet wood, mild bitterness. Wish I'd kept another bottle or two!! fonefan (49293) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2014

Bottle from Cornelius Beer, Edinburgh. An inky black beer that pours with a large foamy brown head. It has very strong coffee and chocolate flavours, very strong roasted and leather notes and more bitter coffee and chocolate on the finish. Excellent! mr_h (5482) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - DEC 26, 2013

500ml bottle from Cornelius shared with mr_h. Very dark brown, big foamy head. Treacle toffee malt aroma. Sharp and sweet spicy treacle malt flavour. Strong viscous alcohol aftertaste. A bit sickly & unbalanced. Scopey (14714) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle at home. Slow gusher. It pours black with a gigantic tan head. The nose is coffee, earth, dark chocolate, nuts and salted liquorice. The taste is rich-roast, coffee grinds, dark chocolate, nuts, toast, salted caramel, with a dry, roasty finish. Medium-full body, high carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Its all about dark chocolate covered nuts. Interesting, flavoursome and good depth. Delicious. AshtonMcCobb (6602) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2013
A shared 50cl bottle @ allmyvinyl’s homebrew gathering. This ticks all the boxes you’d expect from the style but at this strength I’d want something that has more layers of flavour. There’s a lot of dark chocolate and coffee.

500ml bottle shared at home. Dark brown with a big tan head, a bit over-carbonated, and prickly on the palate because of that. Initially very fresh-tasting, but lots of toffee and chocolate and coffee coming through as it warms up. A woody note towards the end. Not bad. nimsk (14) - SCOTLAND - SEP 18, 2013
Bottle from Cornelius, Edinburgh. Very dark, very rich. Quite strong, dry coffee hoppiness. Perhaps a little too gassy, but nonetheless excellent for a cold autumn evening!
