750ml->snifter. Black with moderate tan head. Roasted malt, licorice, bitter coffee, cocoa, anise. OK. drowland (8759) - Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2016
2/14/16. 750mL bottle from Five Points. Happy Valentine’s Day, I guess, though technically it’s just after midnight, not the actual day. Black pour with a thick, creamy tan head that lasts for days and coats with lacing. House yeast maybe? Chocolate on the aroma, dark chocolate that is, a big dose of dark roasted malts, light spice. Ashy, dry, roasted malt flavor, a touch of a savory aspect, dark dark bakers chocolate, a Belgian aspect, light spice, lingers dry and bitter. High, burning carbonation. ebone1988 (1931) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 6, 2016
Aroma is Belgian yeast, roasted malt, not much else. Appearance is black, poured thin, light brown. Taste is Belgian yeast, some roasted malt, nothing else. Mouthfeel is heavy, medium carbonation, lots of Belgian yeast in the aftertaste. Overall, about as good as expected from a brewery I don’t like.

The aroma is caramel, a little coffee. Pours black with a frothy tan head, mostly lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture thin, the carbonation fizzy and the finish bitter. Not bad, just a little too fizzy. GIJOE (1209) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 14, 2016
Pours black with a foamy, brown head. Nose is earthy with chocolate and coffee notes; hint of anise. Taste is rich and bitter like dark chocolate. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Very nice.

Reminds me a lot of the first beer we homebrewed. Dark burnt flavors round out the medium body chocolate flavors. coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2016
A Christmas gift from buddy Alex. A full bodied stout that is appropriately acrid at start and mellows to full rounded roastyness by finish. Dark and silky in the Steigl mug I also received at Christmas from sister in law Sue... Hi Sue. Thick burnt umber head. A thoroughly enjoyable beer. FunkyF (1198) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2016
Flaska från whole food nyc. Svart med fluffigt ljusbrunt skum. Doft av karamell och lite kaffe. Lätt rökig smak med en del kaffebeska. blackflag321 (689) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 1, 2016
Shared bomber, tulip-snifter. Creamy, soft feel. Mild hops and bitterness. Chocolate, roast coffee. Hints of dark fruit and Belgian yeastiness. Huhzubendah (3705) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Thanks Willie! Near black body with a thick, soapy, beige head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, anise, licorice, as noted on the label. Similar flavor. Medium bodied. Good stuff.
