On tap at PP San Clemente. It pours dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is roasted coffee, mealy oats, and grains. The flavor is roasted and a bit cola like with some density on the palate, but without much substance. A little bit of coffee comes through in the finish. maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2011
On tap at The Monk. Pour is black with a small cream head. Lots of roasted notes on the nose with some additions of light chocolate and coffee. Sweet chocolate in the flavour, some moderate bitterness but nothing big or over the top. Not bad fiulijn (20493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2011
RBESG 2010, draught at Brasserie 4:20brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Black color, creamy head. Light aroma of roasted malt, paper, yeast. Smooth mouthfeel; chocolate flavor, dry; the bitterness derives from the roasted malts, it’s low. Simple.
A: The pour is very dark brown, almost black, with a cream mocha colored head.
S: Lots of coffee and roast on the nose, with a nice bitter, dark chocolate. A touch of caramel sweetness as well as minimal earthy hop aromas. Not too many different things going on, but it smells good.
T: Bitter dark chocolate along with an intense roasted malt flavor give this beer a pretty substantial level of bitterness. Sweet oatmeal and toffee. A moderate coffee flavor is present as well.
M: The body is medium, not quite as silky as many oatmeal stouts, though, with a moderate carbonation.
D: A very pleasing and enjoyable beverage. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 15, 2011

Re-rate: Pours with a cola hued body with a huge, creamy tan head. Aromas of cola, brown sugar, chocolate, esters, grainy, cereal and oatmeal. Flavors of coffee, bitter cocoa, roasted notes. Cereal. A bit dry. Medium to lively bubbles with a full body.
Black with a lasting tan head. Aroma of licorice, toffee, biscuit and a hint of mint. Sweetish and rather thin malty flavour with licorice notes TimE (5817) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2010
On tap for a beer club party I had. I didn’t rate at the time, but I drank significant amounts of this, which resulted in a bad hangover and then I had to take a plane overseas. Perhaps because of that I don’t like what Ernst’s evil spell has done to me, but the beer itself is nothing short of great. Silky smooth body with lots of coffee, chocolate malt note with hints of oatmeal. It was so smooth tasting that when the beer was initially served too cold, I thought it would make a great breakfast beer. Lingering chocolately finish. Great stuff.
