Served in a bottle at Valhalla in New York, NY

A: Pours a clear yet opaque jet black in color with light amounts of visible carbonation and some dark amber highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to slightly heavier than moderate amounts of roasted malts with some light notes of anise/licorice.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of roasted malts with lighter notes of bittersweet chocolate and some roasted coffee. Light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness are present.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with a light to moderate amount of dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink with enough complexity to keep it interesting - I could easily have another one of these and enjoy it even though it is more of a slow sipper.

From notes.

A - Gusher. Black pour, huge beige head of thick and fluffy dark beige. Strong carbonation, good soapy lace, half finger retention.

S - Chocolate covered cherries, mild roast, coffee. A bit mild for my tastes.

T - Chocolate, earthy, mild hop note, a little roast. Simple but tasty at the same time.

M - Strong carbonation for the style, medium body, sweetness moves to dryness in the finish.

O/D - Potential infection for this bottle as something seemed a bit off, but it that was off, then this beer is pretty solid. Decent flavours and well executed, but not highly drinkable. A good effort nonetheless.

500ml bottle. I just recently learned how to pronounce this brewery's name - dammit, I already forgot.

This beer pours a solid black, with very slight basal cola highlights, and three generous fingers of puffy, tightly foamy, and kind of creamy tan head, which leaves a few instances of sparse cloudlet lace around the glass as it lazily bleeds away.

It smells of bittersweet cafe au lait, medium dark chocolate, fairly acidic black fruit - prune and dried cherries, mostly - a hint of rye breadiness, and edgy herbal, musty hops. The taste is big, semi-sweet chocolate malt, with a decent dose of caramel and toffee, mild dry coffee, middling molasses and dried stone fruit, a hint of lactic acid, tremulous earthy hops, and a soft touch of warming alcohol.

The bubbles are a tad prickly, but not in any serious manner, the body a hefty medium weight, and mostly smooth, but for a swirling, late-arriving frothiness. It finishes on the sweet side, the chocolate malt, milk-bolstered coffee, and caramel malt overmatching anything the hops or booze can throw at it.

A pleasurable enough version of the style, amped up to near imperial ABV levels, but you'd hardly know otherwise. Tasty, chocolatey, subtly milky, and offset by a perky fruitiness. Old World meet newish-Old World interpretation. Cool, I suppose.
