Skinnyviking (9720) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle. Very high and long lasting creamy light brown head. Pitch black body. Spicy coffee barley malt aroma. Strangely the first impression is of citrus. Second impression is choccolat, roasted malt and hops. Apart from that the beer is having a lot of carbonation and a long and very pleasant hops finish.

DialSquare (5130) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bomber from Whole Foods in Greenville. Oily black-ish pour with a thin tan head and sparse soapy lacing. Aroma is roasted malt and muted coffee/chocolate. Tastes are cocoa, coffee, chocolate - all well balanced. Also a little bready, black pepper and just a hint of licorice (which is good by me). Oily palate and lightly bitter finish. Interesting for sure - though might not need more than once.

Theydon_Bois (20628) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2014
Keg at the Euston Tap, 15/01/14. Light black with a good sized faded tan head that dissipates to a covering and edgework. Nose is dark malts, sweet tones, earthy cocoa backdrop, toffee fudge, soft brown bread dough. Taste comprises cocoa powder, dark toffee fudge, a sweet lead schwarz, muscavado sugars, hint of dark fruits. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, sweet closure. Nice schwarz, pretty sweet but well balanced, a pint of this would likely be a little too much for my palate but a half is fine.
