Bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Pours a thick colour with a fully dissapating white head. Aromas of dark malts, dried fruit, and cocoa. Lighter mouthfeel than the colour suggests. Tastes of anise, malts, and is very slightly sour. A very nice winter sipper!
Bottle thanks to wombat23. Pours dark brown from the bottle. Frothy to creamy tan head that sticks to the glass and lingers. Aroma is a wonderfully subtle mix of plum, dark chocolate and licorice. Taste is unfortunately not nearly as interesting—a sort of menthol ladened cough drop flavor sets the tone, accompanied by a mild berry sourness and a hint of dark chocolate. Body is medium, carbonation is mild. It’s not bad but this feels like an unfinished effort. alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUL 19, 2017
Draft at Ei8ht Ball in a flight from notes. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small khaki colored head. The aroma and flavor have light roasted malts, chocolate, bigger dark fruit character, figs, raisins, thin for a stout, not my favorite. SinH4 (6566) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2017
Bottle, 6.5℅, thanks derA! Brown color with beige head. Aroma is brown malts, chocolate, molasses, toffee, some liquorice. Taste is chocolate, liquorice, molasses, earthy, a bit roasted and some brown sugar. Slightly watery mouthfeel, high but soft carbonation. Not bad, but not excellent.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very small sized head of frothy tan colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind an opaque brown colored body and no lacing. The odd aroma was mild spice and dark malt. The vinous mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a mellow malty aftertaste. The thin flavor contained notes of mild spice dark malt and breads. An OK brew just nothing special.
