Opaque black pour with quick beige foam. Roasted malt in the nose with whiff of coffee. Medium body, moderate fizz. The hops are faint in the taste, but manage to compliment the dark malt. Slightly hoppy aftertaste.

Scipio (1147) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Pours a deep brown with a full, smooth beige head. The aroma is mild, with coffee, roasted malts, and bread. The taste is slightly bitter. It has strong smokiness, coffee, roasted malts, ad some lighter chocolate and cola. Smoky aftertaste. This one is medium in body, with a thick texture, and has average carbonation. This is pretty good as long as you enjoy the heavy smoke. hopdog (12816) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2016

Light brown head. Dark brown color. Not much nose but the mouth has a nice sweet maltiness with good amount of roastiness. I detected some dark fruit and caramel notes. Modest acidity below the sweetness. Very approachable. kajser27 (1922) - Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 6, 2016
