65cl bottle shared. Very dark brown pour with a tan head. Notes of dark chocolate, caramel fudge, sweet, soft dried fruit, light licorice, roasted malts. Smooth mouthfeel, really nice. Blastomorpha (93) - - JAN 1, 2017
Pours pitch black with a creamy tan head. Aroma didn’t impress me at first, but then it revealed to be rich of roasted coffee, chocolate and dark fruits. In mouth the taste is even richer, adding a nice bitter aftertaste of liquorice. Everything coupled with a full body and a mid-low carbonation make this a great, satisfying beer to drink and appreciate sip after sip. ALIBALI (1957) - Kiel, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2016

Tap: Almost black with a medium-sized tanned head; robust sweet-bitter nose of roasted malt, dried fruits and chocolate, traces of vanilla and wood detectable; full bodied, silky MF; solid sweet-bitter flavour; lingering finish of roasted malt and dried fruits, accompanied by a nice balancing bitterness. A liquid x-mas pudding, true...

660ml bottle. Very dark brown on the verge of black with off white head. Malty aroma with chocolate, dark bread, light dried fruits, Christmas pudding and a very light smokiness. Taste is similar with rich maltiness, chocolate, slightly roasted malts, Christmas pudding, slight ashy smokiness and light coffee bitterness. Very smooth medium filling mouthfeel, medium, though fairly quickly settling, carbonation and slightly roasted yet slightly sweet malty aftertaste. zvikar (6068) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - OCT 23, 2016
