castor010 (290) - Kraków, POLAND - MAR 28, 2017
Aromat - gorzka czekolada, wanilia, delikatna wędzonka ogniskowa, nuta śliwkowa. Piana - obrączka, nie krążkuje; brązowa. W smaku niemal to samo, co w aromacie, ale dodatkowo jest intensywny kawowy posmak. Półsłodkie z długim czekoladowym finiszem. Ciało średnio pełne.

25 cl bottle @ home. Bought in Copenhagen during our honeymoon, 3.5 years ago. Batch# 894/895, brewed 29.11.12 (4.5 years ago). Pitch black color. Brown head. Aroma’s: sweet, black strap molasses, red fruit, alcohol. Retronasal it’s sweet, drop/licorice, some soy sauce, red fruit, chocolate. Flavor is moderate to full sweet, dark malts, light roasty, molasses. Pretty strong alcohol feel. Medium to full bodied. Finishes sweet, ryebread, roasty. I remember it was crazy expensive, but fortunately it held up well and is pretty awesome.

250 ml bottle shared by Geiserich, thanks!
Black body, with almost no head.
Aroma of melting dark chocolate, smoke, coffee, liquorice, cocoa, barrel, some dark fruits.
Tastes quite similar, with more booze.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes Roastbeef, medium dry, with coffee, cocoa, liquorice, subtle dark fruits.

Very nice. Not too heavy for the ABV, quite smooth. Well balanced, with diverse, dark roasty notes. Not among my favourite style examples, but a lovely sipper.

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, molasses, mocha, bread, roasted malts and coffee.

Opaque black beer with a slight dark brown head.

Starts heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, molasses and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts and coffee.

This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Insanely sweet flavour at the start with loads of dark fruit and chocolate. Not overly sweet, especially if you do not take too much at once. Had a four year old bottle, so the roasted malts probably are more dominant. Could have been thicker, but the flavour is great.
