Bottle. Pours black. Aroma of roast malt, coffee and vanilla. Sweet with mild roasty bitterness. Thick mouthfeel. Wonderfully satisfying beer.

Mishnok (240) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2017
From 330ml bottle. It pours black with a little soft carbonation at first, but no head or lacing after a short while. Aroma not as strong as I thought it would be. Chocolate bitterness is balanced by vanilla sweetness. Coffee also very evident. One to sip and savour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tom10101 (5900) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2017
Bottle (330 ml), split 2-ways. No bottling date but its a few years old already for sure. Pitch black with a small brown head, moderate retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is intensely chocolate forward with berries, roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, soy sauce, umami notes and alcohol. Taste is sweet but not overly cloying with dark chocolate aplenty, berries, caramel, alcohol, coffee, roasted malts, vanilla, soy sauce and mild spiciness. Medium to full body. Very soft carbonation, almost still. Quite oily and thick mouthfeel. Chocolatey finish with much welcome alcohol warmth which tone down the sweetness at the end of the sip. Lingering flavors, mostly of chocolate. A pretty good flavorful sipper.

330 ml bottle. Pours nearly black with a light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, toffee and vanilla.

19Oracolo78 (171) - ITALY - FEB 12, 2017
Nera. Odore di caffe, nocciola tostata, cioccolato, liquirizia, caramello bruciato. La schiuma fine ma poco persistente. Un corpo molto strutturato e al palato il sapore riprende tutto quello gi manifestatosi all olfatto. Poco carbonata e lalcol della birra sicuramente data dal maltosio, dato che non si sente per niente e al palato rimane molto oleosa. Una birra eccezionale.

Pours black with very little head. Aroma is packed with chocolate with a little spice hiding. So smooth on the mouth with very little carbonation. Flavour is chocolate and coffee with notes a vanilla. Hides the abv very well. Superb.

ThreeCats (886) - ISRAEL - DEC 30, 2016
Black with very little head. Aroma had a strong sweet red wine note at first, with roast, caramel, chocolate, sweet, and coffee come up as beer warms a bit. Taste is very rich, lots of coffee and sweet caramel, a strong note of sweet red fruit upfront and a good amount of roast on palate. Warming sensation on the swallow. Very nice winter warmer.
