Bottle. Black with small dark beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate and strong coffee. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, medium sweet, espresso, hops, pine and medium bitter. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. It’s a really dark brown beer, topped by a dense, finger-thick tan head. Lots of coffee in the aroma, really loads of it, with dark chocolate and some alcohol. A bit one-dimensional, and that goes for the flavor too. Still, it’s really wonderful. It’s lighlty warming on the palate, full-bodied and quite soft, with the coffee dominating the flavor. Long, warming and coffee dominated finish. Love the coffee in this one, but to be honest it’s sort of boring besides that. 131026 jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle thanks to McCain04. Pours black with tan brown head. Nose and taste of roasted coffee, roast chocolate malt, vanilla, coffee grounds and sweet milk chocolate. Finishes dry roasted black coffee. Medium body. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Black in color with a khaki head. Nose of coffee, mint leaves, and chocolate. Decent amount of vanilla and lots of cocoa powder. Of course, some roasted malts. Flavor has a nice bitterness to it, but fair amount of sweet vanilla and chocolate. Some dark fruits, plenty of roast, and bitter cocoa powder. Not bad.

Bottle @ Beer Temple. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized light brown head. Smell and taste malts, roasted malts, coffee, bitter and some hops. Lovely bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation.
