Served in a snifter from a 330ml bottle. Pours almost black opaque colour with a tan long lasting head, leaving plenty of lacing in the glass. Aroma is roasted citrus hops, dark malts, molasses, smoke and coffee. Taste is quite dry, with notes of wood, burnt coffee and molasses, pine resin and a touch of roasted malts, finishing off with long lasting medium pine bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. Nice one. R4N5H (1182) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2016

Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, chocolate, Brett funk (infection?), fruity hops, citrus, some coffee. Flavour is moderate sweet and above moderate bitter. Body is medium. Probably infected, judging by the other ratings. May have to rerate one day. Still tasty though. Parmenion777 (293) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016

Bottle. Black pour, creamy head. Aroma of sweet sugary yeast, funk and roasted malt. Flavor of creamy chocolate, yeast, red fruit, mild tart, roast and a funky finish. Don’t know whether the funk was intended, but it’s nice. Marduk (7694) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 3, 2016
330ml bottle @Metenis 2016. Pitch black color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Roast, spicy, black pepper, chilly in aroma. Rose pepper, roast, dry chocolate cake, yeasty and just a tiny bit of diacetyl in taste. Rose pepper and roast in aftertaste. Nice and spicy, but that’s pretty much it. Drinkable, but not very exciting.
