Bottle. Black with small head. Mine was 6 months old so it was mostly roasted malt and licorice in the aroma and taste. There was some hops present also, but I believe it should have been more if it was fresher.

cinek (207) - POLAND - FEB 26, 2017
tap/omerta. czarne, bez refleksw, generalnie brak piany zaraz po nalaniu, ale po wzbudzeniu tworzy ładną koronkę, piana brązowa, drobnopęcherzykowa. aromat słodowy, cytrusowy, po ogrzaniu subtelne słody palone. w smaku natomiast słody palone dominują i długo utrzymują się na podniebieniu w postaci palonej goryczki. pełne, alkohol niewyczuwalny, nasycenie niskie. mega dobre piwo

MelvinKalksma (1367) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2017

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate, roasted malts, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a large/huge beige/brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Superb balanced flavour, though slightly on the roasted malts side, especially great for its abv. The hops never make some orange or pine happen, but they are perfectly woven into the mix. Great aroma and palate, together with an amazing appearance. Wonderful beer overall with no flaws whatsoever.

evannell (898) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 24, 2017
Piwo nie do końca czarne, z ładną, beżową, gęstą pianą. już podczas nalewania unosi się nad nim ta grejpfrutowa doskonałość. Kuszący ten zapach. W smaku uderza mocna ilość igieł, grejpfruta, a za nią mocno palona kawa. Ujawnia się trochę czekoladowej słodyczy - jak na mj gust trochę zbyt wiele. Duży plus za samą fermentację. Widać, że przy produkcji piwa nie ucierpiały żadne drożdże.

Sigmund (7126) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2017
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.3%. Black colour, moderate beige head. Fresh aroma of fruity and piney Galaxy hops, also some mild roasty notes, hints of coffee. The flavour is slightly on the dry side, distinct hops, but also more distinct roast malts here, with notes of strong bitter coffee and dark bitter chocolate. Plenty of bittering hops in the finish.
