Small bottle, brought home from Kihoskh, København. Jet black body. Tall, mostely lasting choco head. Nice fruity and hoppy aroma, backed by rich and fresh sourish coffe/chocolate and well roasted dark malts. Roasty, light tarry malt flavor. Yet crisp and kind of fruity with a sour-sweet twist. Thick texture. Full body. Fresh bitter-sweet and roasty ending. Good stuff. PotjeBier (3736) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2012

Yeah, a completely black motor oil pour! Medium vast brown head, that disappears slow, on top of a pitch black beer.
Will this be another George...
The aroma is a beautiful mix of roasted malts, coffee, roasted barley, light hints of liquorice, some spices/alcohol. All very well blended.
Taste roasted malts, coffee, light roasted brown sugars, some bitterness, chocolate soaked hops, earth, tobacco, spices, sticky sweets which are well balanced with the bitterness and roasted ingredients.
Spicy roast earthy coffee herby aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft almost silky mouthfeel, full body and a creamy sticky texture.
Bit on the sweet side at first, but after a while it gets more easier and tastier to drink. Good and interesting brew. sunevdj (4128) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2012

In bottle. Pours a very dark brown colour with a thin light tan head. Aroma of burnt toast, roasty malt and a little liquorice. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Quite sweet and a little dry with lingering Weetabix malt and caramel. dantheman278 (1365) - SCOTLAND - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle at cgarvieuk’s, courtesy of Benjii and Sev. Thanks!! Deep black pour, no head. Awesome nose, massive rich dark chocolate, liquorice, massively fruity, hint of coffee, marzipan maybe. Amazing sweet chocolate front, more marzipan, sweet caramel maybe, hints of coffee grounds, just a very very tiny hint of booze on the finish, also a touch of earthy hops. This is pretty amazing.
