Piwo brunatno czarne z niezbyt obfita bezowa drobnopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie czekolada, kawa, rodzynki i palone slody. W smaku dosc slodkie ze srednio intensywna goryczka i dosc niskim wysyceniem. Taki likier czekoladowy kawowy, bardzo gladki i oleisty z posmakiem toffee. Piwo ma potencjal zeby byc naprawde swietne ale brakuje czegos z efektem "wow".

hohops (880) - Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Bottled 30.10.14, 10%. Appearance- utterly black, with a thick one-finger brown/tan head. Aroma- coffee, espresso, roast malt, leather, dark chocolate, chocolate milkshake, burnt malt, trace of smoke, fudge cake. Undertones of blackcurrant and dark fruits. Vanilla traces. Taste- bitter, roasty coffee, smoky roast malt, burnt toast, dark chocolate, fudge, coffee cake, treacle, rich espresso, more bitterness. Caramel, slightly sweet undertones, sticky clingy finish, a very long aftertaste. Really good.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle. Intense chocolate liqueur. Actually more chocolate liqueur notes in here than in a proper chocolate liqueur. Soy sauce, barbecue roast, burned wood, forest fruit, minor plum notes, espresso. Thick and creamy. More fruity in the flavour than in the aroma. Hidden alcohol. Roasted bitter, mineral-earthy finish. Excellent stuff.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2016 Donkerbruin (bijna zwart) bier met dik mokkakleurig schuim (lijkt wel chocolademousse) die langzaamaan inzakt tot een fijn laagje. Aroma en smaken van chocolade, koffie, lichte caramel en een hint vanille. Subtiel licht bittere afdronk. Vol en romig in de mond met een klein zoetje. Perfect gebalanceerd bier. Topper !!

Mesjasz (1233) - Lodz, POLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Aromat niszczy czekoladą, taką mocno paloną i gorzką, z jebitną ilością kakao. Mamy fajnie wpisywany w to karmel, toffi oraz nuty kawy. Smak dosyć wytrawny, lekko gorzki i minimalnie słodki. W smaku jest czekolada, kawa, karmel, nutka alkoholu. Posmak dosyć goryczkowy w stylu pestkowo kawowym. Ciało dosyć wysokie, ale mogłoby być lepsze, wysycenie niskie do średniego, faktura lekko oleista, ale jednak bliżej wody

Black, great brown head. Aroma: cocoa, caramel, vanilla, coffee, some fruity notes. Heavy sweetness, medium body, medium bitterness. Sweet malty profile with harsh roasty finish. Bit alcoholic. Oily texture. 7 months after bottling, but it should wait longer.
