Can from Livonia Liquor. Pours a pitch black with a finger of brown head that dissipates. Some weird floaties that move to the surface that are likely cinnamon, chili or almond flour that are not really appealing to look at. Nose is bang on though; tons of cinnamon with nice chili heat and slight habanero fruitiness is present. More of the same on the palate. Great viscous mouthfeel. Cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla and chili spice. What Xocoveza wanted to be all these years. Great stuff.
Lemon, lemon peel, caramel malt, and grass aroma. Hazy amber with small off-white head. Mildly sweet caramel malt, and mildly bitter grass flavor. Good body. Solid.
440ml can. Poured a clear black colour with a short-lived frothy tan head. The aroma is molasses, light banana. The flavour is over moderate sweet, with a smooth, rich, oily, roasty, molasses, banana, light chocolate, vanilla palate. Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation. Nice but only in small quantities. Very sweet. Drinking a whole can would be a challenge.
Jet black with a small beige head. Peanut butter and chex works for me. Sweet peanut butter, chocolate and that grainy chex note.
330ml can from Beerwulf. Poured a clear black colour with a short-lived frothy tan head. The aroma is roasty malt, liqourice, light chocolate.

Toffee malt, pine, and grapefruit peel aroma. Dark red amber with large tan head. Moderately sweet toffee malt, and moderately bitter pine and grapefruit peel flavor. Good body. Not bad

Color negro con espuma tostada, duración corta. Aroma a maltas tostadas, torrefactas. Sabor ligeramente dulce, con notas suaves a whisky, regaliz y café. Final sedoso, apenas alcohólico, fácil de beber. Muy buena... otra más de esta gente de Laugar.
Intensiv hopfiger, deutlich malziger Beginn. Karamellig aber trocken, die Bitterkeit ist zwar stark, 100 IBUs hätte ich aber nicht geschätzt. Leicht grasig, leichte Röstnoten, rund. Langer hopfiger Nachgeschmack. Gut! 9/12/12/12/8/12

Clear golden with a dense white head. Candy sugar, citrus and fruity esters in the aroma. Sweet taste with a perfumy bitter finish. Body is quite thin for its ABV but otherwise it's a decent but unexciting Belgian blonde.
