Draught @ the brewpub. Rated on 18.09.2009
Aroma has lots of mocha, some licorice and hints of vegetables. Flavour has mocha, truffles, some semi‐dark chocolate, hints of vegetables and distant herbal notes. Plevna house flavour is also present. Feels a bit thin, around 7‐8% this could be a hit.

Pours dark brown color with a medium head. Aroma of caramel, malts, some mocha-like chocolate, ripe fruit notes and faint coffee. Flavor of cocoa, dark chocolate, malts and caramel. Decent.
Draught. Very dark, almost black. Thin beige head has creamy texture. Cold coffee nose, sticky roastedness, milk sugar, dark chocolate and a hint of vegetables. A hint of vanilla, maybe. Dry, sligthly sour taste is lightly burned and ashy. It has a bit too much roasted sourness. Coffee flavor is nice, though. Only hints of hop aroma come through, but the finish is bitterish. Medium bodied, oily texture, sligtly fizzy carbonation. tiong (7513) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2011

Pours a black colour with a small beige head which lasts long. Roasted malts, coffee with mild chocolate on the nose. The flavour is sweet and coffee-driven with roasted malts, hops and earthy notes too. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. Very tasty and easy to drink.
Draught at Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinki. Poured a dark red body, almost black, with a light tan head. Sweet nose, malty, with distinct notes of mocha, all in all, very nice. The taste is sweet and balanced with mocha mingling with some light fruitiness that might be from some hop. The aftertaste is bitter, maybe roasty. It´s soft overall and quite drinkable. I like this!
