This is pure awful candy beer. Seriously, I would like to take the brewer of this beer and stick his head in a bucket of hops and keep it there until his body absorbed enough that his mere proximty to the brewing process would ensure that this never happens again. I am not sure how this beer has ratings as high as it does. One of the few beers that I have not enjoyed at some level.
Very quickly torn between judging this beer badly, as it tastes almost like a malt beer. Yet after concentrating really hard and the second (and third) taste... I like it. It is almost a new direction. A mild black beer with mild but detailed roast notes and a good malty taste with fine aftertaste notes. Poncjusz (369) - POLAND - DEC 11, 2017
Czarna czerwien, klarowny rubin pod swiatlo. Piana solidna. W aromacie karmel, syrop, delikatna palonosc, przypalony popcorn. W smaku slodycz slodu, karmelu, syropu, delikatne posmaki szlachetnego chmielu. Wrazenie przeslodzonej kawy zbozowej. Dla fanow slodyczy. Nie jest zle ale za malo bogate i zbyt jednolite. rja (15) - - DEC 8, 2017
Starts black with a nice thick (but quickly disappearing) head. Taste is initially OK but watery. Then a sweetness is overwhelming everything and only a little burnt sugar remains. Why add sugar syrup? vinivini (3146) - Gomel, BELARUS - OCT 10, 2017

A dark (we call it black) beer with syrup. I'm not exactly getting the point, wha there has to ba any additive at all, because there re so many other (and better) Schwarzbier without. olszam (24) - Köln, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 Ładna czarna barwa. W zapachu palone słody, przypalona skórka od chleba. W smaku bardzo karmelowe, ewidentny brak goryczki, przypalony popcorn, przesłodzona kawa. Minimalna piana. Bardzo wodniste i słodkie. Przypomina piwo Karmi, ale jest bardziej piwne w smaku. MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 22, 2017
Bottle @ Floris’ Leaving Party. Pours a very dark brown, almost black beer with a very light white head on top. Aroma of wort, unfermented sugars and red fruits. Flavor is just about the same, very worty, lots of sugars, which is fine when this beer needs a secondary fermentation, but not as finished product. Very light mouthfeel, rather disgusting. sjogro (4999) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2017
Sampled from bottle at Floris’s leaving tasting. Clear dark brown with offwhite head. Sweet wort, nuttiness. Moderate sweet and bitter. Medium body, very malty and slick.
