33cl bottle. Pours black with tanned head. Mostly licorice, some roasted malts. Quite sweet, maybe too much to be favorite but very good brew none the less. cglans (213) - - MAR 18, 2017

Bottle. Pours black with small tan head. Aroma has roasted malt, licorice and coffee. Taste has a lot of licorice (I love it), but also has roasted malt, coffee and caramel. Also has some nice bitterness. Very good one. DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2017
Bottle at home, February 2016. Black as ink with an initial tan swell of foam departing fast. Aroma of apple, plum and bramble purée, liquorice, saline oyster sauce and Bovril splashes, burnt Sugar Puffs and cinder toffee. Charcoal and black coffee bitterness stirred with liquorice and burnt cinder toffee. Sweet front but with the roast and hop to balance it. Old school bitter cocoa and espresso. It’s good but a little sticky and lacking heft.

Bière très noire, sans trop de mousse, une odeur de grillé, de chocolat noir, café.on sent fort l’alcool. Pas trop pétillante en bouche, le goût torréfié ressort, et laisse en bouche une vraie force. Une biere costaud.
