Gerbeer (3411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2015
On tap. Pours black with bubbly white head. Aromas of chalk, ash, and dry roasted malts. Flavors of same with additional salty mineral elements (like an oyster stout). Very nice but overpriced.

fkoolen (1088) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle at home. Oily thick, black coloured and topped by a brown creamy head. Big bodied sweet and roasted maltiness bursts into the nose and tastebuds with espresso, dark bitter chocolate, light toffee and caramel, creamy. As it warms it gets some ripe fruits and nuts, but its main character is dry and bitter. Long lingering finish, boozy warming too. Medium carbonation, oily mouthfeel. I?ll be looking out for a BA version of this beer.

Diamorotic (1) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 9, 2015 does not count
Outstanding beer. Creamy, smooth texture. Delicate coffee aromas when cold, delicate chocolate. Dark fruits like pitahaya can be smelled. Very, very good beer. Bitternes is simmilar to coffee, it is a bit sweet. Coffee-chocolate-fruit aroma is great. Awesome beer.

AdamChandler (4810) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 30, 2015
Draught, Pitch black. No light showing through. 2 finger coffee colored head. Smells like brown sugar, oatmeal, molasses and cedar mulch. Lots of dry chocolate in this one. Exceptional yeast presence and insanely clean. Finish is high bitterness in the 80s. Fudge lingers on. after a few more sips, honestly this is just way too sweet for me.

GlasgowTAD (1581) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2015
Pours black with a medium, frothy brown head which soon recedes to a foamy layer. Aroma consists of hazelnuts, vanilla, coffee, dark chocolate and sweet burnt sugar. Taste is vanilla, hazelnuts, soft dried fruits, cocoa, milk chocolate and a slight bitterness on the finish. A touch of alcohol heat is felt but not overwhelming. Full bodied with a thick mouthfeel.
