Just an outstanding example. Rich, thick, oily, full bodied mouthfeel. ABV well hidden, but the hum of alcohol is really well balanced with the flavour of the malts. tastes of chocolate, sherry, rich dried fruits. Not too roasty. which is working well with this beer (I do like them roasty too though). Even the Mrs likes it, and she drinks wine! Probabeer (221) - - JUN 20, 2016
Muy buena. Tiene un aroma muy bueno. Bastante cuerpo, y deja un sabor largo con tonos a chocolate. brewtalita (349) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 16, 2016
Jet black, low lingering brickish red head. Aroma cocoa powder, espresso. Robust body, roastiness nicely blends with sour cocoa nibs. Long lasting bitterness - well hopped. Maybe too much, otherwise rating would be bit higher. Zlotta (4142) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’De Bierkoning’ at 10% abv, bottled in October 2014. Pitch black with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, light brown head. Intense, sweetish, roasty aroma of dark chocolate, mocca, licorice and cocoa. Sweetish-malty, moderately roasty taste of dark chocolate, mocca, licorice, cocoa and hints of hazelnut, followed by a long, slightly warming, rather roasty-bitter finish. Full body, creamy ans viscid mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very intense flavours, great mouthfeel, overall very satisfying. Just lovely! rusos (801) - Stupava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 11, 2016
Bottle, thanks to brewtalita. Dark brown colour, nice beige head. Aroma is roasted, assertively hopped, earthy, pine. Taste is roasted, earthy hoppy, some caramel and malty sweetness. Roasted and hoppy bitter aftertaste. Very good.

Aromat gorszy od smaku, w aromacie troche przypalonego pieczywa i orzechów, kawy w tle, w smaku bardzo gęste lepiące, z fajnym orzechowo waniliowo kawowym posmakiem, podsumowując bardzo dobre warto ściągać z półki, polecam artemb (1292) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - MAY 6, 2016

A well rounded and tasty imp. considering it is more licorice forward than I normally prefer. aleigator (945) - GERMANY - MAY 3, 2016
Pours a clear, sunny-amber color, with a huge froth head on top.
Smells of wheat entangled orange peel, spiced up by black peppers and coriander. Offers a soothing wet grass quality among toffee malts and a whiff of rock sugar.
Has a higher, lively carbonation, although the beer’s overall soft and creamy mouthfeel prevails, while adding a nice refreshment to it.
Tastes of bitter cardamom and equally bitter lemon peel accompanied by white orange zest, hay and a rock sugar peak. Unusually refreshing with blood oranges and a note of black peppers together with a soft aqueous quality. Finishes with a world class creaminess, while a perfectly dosed, bubbly carbonation cuts through along with sweeter spices, and a still recognizable bitter counterpart from the beginning.
Fantastic beer overall, offers a unique twist while sticking to the style, perfected by its balance and supersmooth mouthfeel.
