hawthorne00 (3718) - Melbourne, - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 15C. Black with an inch of tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, prunes, vanilla. Velvety mouthfeel, but quite astringent - goes from very smooth to a little sharp at each sip. Taste has sweet mocha, dried fruits and vanilla. Earthy and tangy. Slight alcohol burn. Bitterness almost pops out at the end with astringent coffee and late-arriving dried orange peel. Deep and interesting, but doesnt quite mesh as a whole. Might well come together on keeping, but very good now.

LazyPyro (791) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2017
660ml bottle. Jet black appearance with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, liquorice, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is very rich, same flavours as the aroma, light roasted malts, vanilla, light coffee, quite sweet but not cloying, very slight alcohol burn. Full bodied, creamy velvety smooth texture. A rich, complex, delicious beer.

BlazerT (855) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle. Teku. Pitch black with moderate, thick, light brown head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma are mostly caramel, burnt malts, light coffee, chocolate and bready. Slightly hoppy. Taste is moderately sweet and light to moderately bitter with some ashy and dry accents in the end. Medium body, oily texture, soft to average carbonation, finish is mild, malty, velvety, smooth, creamy and dry. In overall good brew, but slightly boring and 0,5l bottle is definitely enough.

Blastomorpha (93) - - JAN 1, 2017
Pours pitch black with a creamy tan head. Aroma didnt 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.

pivnizub (10370) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - NOV 19, 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...

axl (721) - Lund, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2016
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.
