Pours black, nice thin beige foam. Aroma is sweetish, dark fruits feeling light. Chocolate and cocoa nibs. Taste is also chocolaty plus has some stronger cocoa, dark fruit liquid. Coffee is bit subtle but is there and fills your taste buds with some enjoyment. Good stuff. Drinks like 7 or 8 percent beer, no way this is 13! Looks bit reddish.

330ml bottle courtesy of fugitive! Black color with brown head. Roasted malty aroma, coffee, chocolate, cocoa, dark fruits, caramel. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma. Medium silky oily body with soft carbonation. vyvvy (6470) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 15, 2015
The beer pours deep brown with a dark tan head. The aroma has roasty malt, oak, whiskey, anise, dark chocolate and is quite dry. It has a full rich body with a mild amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with roast, anise, cocoa, raisins, dates and some alcohol. The finish has dark fruits and anise. Thanks to gregwilsonstl for sharing this one. gregwilsonstl (2504) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2015

Bottle shared at tasting. Thanks Jon! Pitch black with a small beige head. Strong espresso notes on the nose with milk chocolate. Lots of coffee and 70% cacao on the palate with some sweetness. Also a bit of light sourness as it warms up. The coffee really stands out for sure.

Pitch black color. Thin dark brown color. Fairly innocuous nose that is sour a bit of mocha. The mouth is full bodied slightly sour low carbonation. Not bad. jc1762 (1436) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Poured into teku showing pitch black with a ring of latte colored foam.
The nose shows a lot of sweet latte notes.
The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. The first impression shows flavors of espresso and mocha. A strong alcohol spice permeates throughout the whole beer. Klimaet (2594) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2015
Pour @ Borefts Beer Festival 2015 thanks to some dude. Cant remember who to be honest haha. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aromas of dark fruits, light coffee, chocolate, roast, malt. Taste is caramel, fudge, light coffee, chocolate, roast, dark fruits. Not much "bomb" about the coffee in this but still pretty good. mrol (330) - - OCT 3, 2015

750ml bottle. Thx Andrew! Hefty dark brown hue. Big chocolate taste. Sort of a dry, sugared black malt taste plus some coffe & toasty notes. Better as it warmed.
