Sparf (247) - stersund, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2016
Mycket kraftig, brdtung doft. Aning kttig och rejlt tung med ltta alkoholinslag. Kaffe och melass Tt, silkeslen brygd som r totalt svart, frmodligen den svartaste l av de tusentals jag sett. En tunn hinna skum. Stma, soja, rund chokladsmak som balanseras mot slta och en ltt syra. Kaffetoner spelar med.

Pours black with a thick light tan head. Aroma is dark dried fruits, leather and deep creamy malts. Taste is smooth smooth mocha followed very quickly by dried raisiny goodness and a coffee inspired bitter finish. Awesome!

Brewed Oct. 2015: When they say black ale, they aint kidding. If its not pure black its a deep, dark brown. Massive sheet of cardboard brown lace. The aroma is pungent black licorice, dates, plums, sour raisins. The oak is beautiful and mercifully mild; an accent. German chocolate. Dusty hazelnut. I love the complexity and the flavor of this beer. The flavor is a burst of alcohol, followed by a blast of burnt oak. Then there is a cascade of licorice, dark cherry, plum and dates. The alcohol coats the tongue. The feel is creamy and milky, but dry like Ovaltine. It burns just a bit on the way down. It is a superior dark ale. The alcohol and flavor of a stout with the smooth edges of a porter.

oldrtybastrd (5002) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a brown almost black color with a small tan head. Aromas heavy on chocolate/coffee with some smoke. Nice bitterness mixed with the coffee/chocolate flavors. Excellent porter.

If youre thinking about having more than a couple of beers you may want to share this bottle with a friend. Though its quite filling, its high ABV is well masked by dark roasted coffee character. Dark, heavy aromas match the mocha colored head.

keenano (27) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
Pours deep dark brown for the bottle. Dark brown initially to off beige head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, slight booze. Huge chocolate throughout, nice finish. Unbelievably easy at 13%. Solid brew

0,75l bottle at Vienna Tasting shared by Nische, big thanks. BB 04/18/11. black color, small off-white head. smells of vanilla, licorice, spices, some roast. too much vanilla. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of licorice, vanilla, spices, wood, rather alcoholic. finishes lightly roasted with some alcohol with notes of licorice and wood. good stuff, a bit too much vanilla for me. overall ok.
