Vikingbrew (193) - Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2010
On tap. Dark brown with off white head. Very rich dark roast maltiness with chocolate, vanilla, and some coffee. Alcohol warmth. Good!


3.3
DonGregorio (516) - POLAND - OCT 21, 2017
Bottle shared at tasting. Dark brown beer with tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, light roast and coffee. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter, milk chocolate, dried fruits, light roasty. Bitter chocolate in the finish. Medium body, soft to average carbonation. OK, but disappointing - thin and not very complex.

3.5
pictoman (1185) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2017
Poured from the tap. Near black with tan head. Light roast malt with a certain mild sweetness (sort of licorice-y?) about it. Not completely balanced.

On tap at St. Augustine's during 54 taps Beerthirst event. Pours a very dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and lots of coffee. Taste is similar with some fruity notes, a little bit smokey. Good one.

Butelka. Mało intensywne w aromacie. Głównie kawa, zboże, palonosc. Lepka konsystencja. Mocno pijalne, alkohol b.dobrze ukryty. Lekka kwasowość po ogrzaniu.

jbruner (5124) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2017
Pours a deep brownish black from the bomber with bubbly tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of dark chocolate, light roast, and booze. Taste is more toward the chocolate, hint of vanilla, mild earth. Decent.
