Aroma: some coffee and a little chocolate; there?s some bluntness to the aroma that I can?t quite isolate or name. Appearance: black; opaque; head medium, fine, stable. Taste: a little more bitter than sweet, slightly sour. Palate: body nearing full; carbonation average; mouth feel spicy; finish faint, bittersweet. Overall: feels portery to some degree. This would explain the high rating because much as this beer is fairly decent and almost enjoyable, I can frankly see no other rationale for it than the strange obsession ratebeer users seem to have with anything that smells remotely of coffee or chocolate.

Garrold (3333) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle. Lidl. Clear, deep red. Thin, bubbly, sticky, tan head. Nose of chocolate malts. Dark fruit. Nutty milk chocolate. Hint of coffee. Hint of liquorice as it warms. Taste has a soft, brown sugar sweetness first off. Turns roasty dry and light bitter. Smooth mouthfeel. Nicely rounded. Fruity dry finish. I need to get back down to Lidl...

500ml bottle from Lidl - Near black body with a lasting beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, hints of caramel and dark fruits. Taste is roasted malt with some liquorice, coffee and nuts; finish is mostly dry. Don’t have many dunkels or tmavý these days, but this on is a corker...
