Ancient rating from Hunahpu’s Day 2012, I recently found my tasting notes. Figured why waste good ticks…espresso, cacao, dates. tobacco, somewhat bitter. Nice. djd07 (15543) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle thanks to Will. Pours a cloudy brown with small beige head. The aroma is roasted malt and chocolate. Medium mouth, nice roast, light dark chocolate, hides alcohol well, very good. Martinus (4701) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2015

Bottle. Pours midnight black with a bit of head. Aroma is espresso and dark chocolate. Taste is super smooth, velvety. Lots of cocoa, milk chocolate and excellent coffee flavor throughout. I could drink this all night.

22 oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with lasting beige head that leaves no lacing, with maroon hues when backlit. Aroma is malt with subdued chocolate and roast notes with dark fruit sweetness. Flavor is same with medium body, silky carbonation, and sweet dark fruit finish. Huhzubendah (3753) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle shared by RussianDragon. Thanks man.
The beer is dark mahogany with an inch of soapy, foamy, beige head. Aromas of chocolates, dark fruit. Sweet fruits with some cherry notes. Chocolate covered cherries and perhaps a touch of espresso. Raisins, prunes, dates, figs, etc. Perhaps a mild hop bitterness might help to balance the equation a bit. Finishes sweet. Definitely a bottle for sharing, as the sweet character becomes cloying. kappldav123 (6133) - GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014

Pours very dark brown with a thin creamy head and no lacing. Rich, chocolate aroma with dark roasted coffee notes and hints of rum. taste is much the same with plenty of warming spice. finish is long and rich. best when near room temp. John25 (1291) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle. Black. Chocolate and coffee. Dark roast flavor. Smooth calm mouthfeel. Clean finish. Good stuff.
