330 ml. bottle sampled. Obtained in the big Israeli trade. Shared with multiple people @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Black, little mocha bubbles. Nose is sweetish coffee, light grains, touch soy sauce. Taste is bitter vegetable roast, herbal coffee, bitter grounds, light liquorish. Grainy roast body. Touch metallic. Pretty decent & quaffable beer.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2015
11.2 oz. bottle from Wilburs. Appearance: finger red copper head that dissipates quickly, dark brown color, cloudy. Aroma: rich coffee and dark chocolate notes, roast, light metallic. Palate: medium full body, average carbonation, slightly dry finish, thin texture. Taste: sweet chocolate with a little bit of roast to it, ending with a metallic taste that lingers. Overall, very nice aroma and appearance, but the taste is lacking and the palate is a bit thin. Definitely a good starting point, but needs some work.

On tap at ABV Pub in Hillsboro, OR. Pours black with a small head. Aroma of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is dry, as appropriate, but not harshly so. Pleasant dark chocolate and roasted malt flavor. Medium mouthfeel. Easy to drink and delicious.

maxwelldeux (4373) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a smallish light brown head on there. Nose is dry and roasty, with some sour black licorice notes coming through for me. Taste has a hint of chocolate to it, and is sweeter than I would have expected given its style. Nice roasty finish, too.

Black pour. Big tan head. Little bit of lacing. Dry roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Roasty flavor. Some tartness in the sweet finish.

Underdogs88 (325) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Smooth coffee like aroma. Appearance is jet black with a large tan head with good retention. Flavor has notes of mild coffee with large amounts of fruity esters. Roast dries out the beer and is smooth at the same time. Mouthfeel is medium with a high level of carbonation. Overall, it's a solid dry stout. The only fault is that the carbonation is too high. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
