Bov (13264) - Bienne, - NOV 10, 2015
from Erzbierschof - pitch black beer with a moderate foam left; strong roasted aroma of pralines, cacao and licorice; strong malt backbone, very sweet, oily and hugely bitter; decently dry, very roasted and long chocolaty finish with more notes of licorice and tobacco; strong warming alcohol notes - beautiful !

90 (819) - BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2017
The Black tasting hosted by Kraddel 17/10/2017. Brewed 2012, Sold 2013. Aroma is licorice sourness, hint of roast. Taste is roasted, moldy oak, a tad cardboard which lowers the rating. Some sourness, whiff licorice. Still fizzy. Palate is a tad too thin for a 16% ABV

gr_pa (849) - siemianowice, POLAND - JUN 5, 2017
Black, no head. Aroma: malty, caramel, toasty, red fruits, chocolate, alcohol, dry fruits, nuts, toast. Full body, heavy cloying sweetness, dense, oily texture. Nice esters in flavour. Alcohol noticable, but in acceptable level.

Dzoshu (277) - Warszawa, POLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Kolor: Czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana: Brązowa, sycząca, szybko redukuje się do zera. Zapach: Czekolada, nutki ogniskowe, palone, sos sojowy. Pachnie bardzo przyjemnie. Smak: Dość słodkie, cierpkawe od ciemnych słodów. Gorzka czekolada, sos sojowy, orzech włoski, syrop na kaszel. Niezbyt wysoka, czekoladowa w odczuciu goryczka. Przyjemne alkoholowe rozgrzewanie na finiszu. Wysycenie: Średnie, za wysokie. Opakowanie: Kartonik ,firmowy kapsel, prosta etykieta z niedokładnym składem. Uwagi: Warka 29.11.27 Bardzo przyjemne, złożone
