Jet black pour with a thin espresso head. Aroma is full of espresso and vanilla. Medium bodied. Taste is very chocolatey. Milk chocolate and some dark chocolate. Reminds me of a dark chocolate candy bar a bit. Cacoa nib bitterness in there too. Bitter malt finish, but there's enough sweetness to keep you coming back for more. Slight lace present. 77ships (11380) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2017

Svart med fingerhøyt lys brunt skum. Lukter engelsk lakris, havre og kaffe. Middels+ i fylde. Smaker søtlig lakris, svisker, lett bitter kaffe og mørk sjokolade. yngwie (17262) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2017
On tap at Cardinal. A dark brown to black beer with a finger thick, dense, tan head. Lacing. Roasted malts, coffee notes, tropical fruits, mango and passionfruit mostly, a light berry touch and some dark chocolate in the aroma. It's full to medium bodied, smooth and semi-dry, with a good dash of bitterness. Roasted malts, some burnt notes, blackberries and coffee. Quite fruity. Lasting finish. Sure a nice one, but I'd prefer more body and perhaps more sweetness. 171020 gunnar (9778) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2017
