Aroma is coffee and cherry, slightly roasty. Flavor is a bit more hoppy, but the sweet and roasty maltiness is still what dominates. The blending becomes apparent as it warms, revealing a fair amount of complexity. Overall, it's a trifle thin, but a very nice beer. Drake (14062) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2009

Dark brown with a lasting off-white head. Roasted toffee and chocolate aroma. Roast malt and chocolate flavour BeerandBlues2 (13719) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Comes in a flask bottle which is quite unique. Pours a wonderfully clear and clean mahoganey with virtually no head, but what is there is tan and lasts only seconds. The aroma is a sweet dark chocolate that makes your mouth think it is about to get into some fine dark and smooth piece of chocolate. Coffee notes follow and then a bit of hop tickles your nose. Initial flavor is a silky smooth roasted chocolate malt flavor that finishes mildly hoppy. A full-bodied palate and silky mouthfeel. bierkoning (13614) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2006
Coffee, licorice and brown sugar in both aroma and flavor. Sweetish, medium bodied. Bitter walnut aftertaste. Tasty, but the licorice character is somewhat exaggerated. Nevertheless a fine beer.
