On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Pitch black with a lacy beige head. Aroma- oats, toasted malts, acetone? Taste- dusty, big malts, sweet at first, then mellows. Oats, roasted malt, slightly smoky. Finishes quick. Mild for such high ABV. 6ROW (473) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2009

Can Pours a nice black with a tan-brownish head. The head has average staying power and laces real well. Has a good aroma of coffee, smokey roast, chocolate, nuts, molasses, and some dark fruits. Has a light carbonation. The flavor is good with plenty of sweetness and blended well. The alcohol is well hidden. Has a slick texture. A full body. The finish is good with a nice touch of bitterness. A good aftertaste. I wait a while to get my hands on this and it didn’t dissapoint a very good beer even from a can. explodingmonk (2) - USA - DEC 22, 2009 does not count
Almost coffee like in appearance. Smell of alcohol and light licorice are prominent. This is a strong beer, in flavor and alcohol content. I didn’t drink it with food but I would think that it would overpower nearly everything.

12oz can poured into a tulip glass produced a dark brown frothy head and black body. Like motor oil with a head on it. Flavor and aroma of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Svesse (8731) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2009
(Can, Akkurat, Stockholm) Pitch black colour with brief, frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with espresso, ashes, tar and cocoa. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, black coffee, ashes and some tar. Generous cocoa bitterness in a long finish. Full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, fairly dry. Alcohol fairly well hidden. Well, it’s bold, full bodied, hoppy, strong and ... it’s canned! But in some way it’s very well balanced and quite easy to drink. Very tasty and quite brilliant!
