Bottle. A black beer with a small tan head. Coffee made over campfire vibes at first in aroma. Also some chocolate later on. Burnt wood, licorice and bitter cocoa notes in taste. Roasted dark malty and ashy finish. Takes a turn between sweet and bitter this one. Quite nice. rouhlas (3616) - GREECE - MAY 23, 2015

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, bread, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate, roasted malts, smoke and peat.
Opaque dark brown/black beer with heavy yeast and with a medium brown/dark brown head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, dark fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts, smoke and peat.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Extremely sweet start with a lot of dark fruit and liquorice. The excessive smoke, and even slight peat, at the end balances the whole beer.
Pikzwart met rode gloed, mooie bruine schuimkraag die zakt naar een laagje.
Aroma: Iets gerookt, chocolade, koffie, donkere mouten, donkere fruit, zoethout.
Smaak: Gerookt, licht zoet, gedroogd fruit, zoethout, karamel, koffie en pure chocolade en Vanille. Op het einde nog een prikkelige hopbitter. De alcohol blijf aardig op de achtergrond.... mogelijk ook door de sterke gerookte smaak...... drinkt makkelijk.
Body is licht tot medium, mondgevoel zacht , koolzuur is medium en afdronk is bitter, gerookt en iets droog. Prima Spul goozen (4071) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2011

Bottle traded with Borresteijn. Thanks a bunch! As my rating no. 4500. It pours pitch black with a creamy tan head. The aroma is hard roasted malt, light peat, liquorice and bitter coffee. The flavour is roasted and bitter with strong notes of liquorice and bitter coffee. Long bitter roasted finish. Very nice. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2012
