Dark very, no head. Strong mocha, chocolate and nut aroma, strong mocha and chocolate flavor, without any annoying bitterness. Like drinking a very nice dessert.

uckelman (645) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
Pours chocolate brown, but clear. Thin oily tan head. Huge cocoa aroma. Reminds me a great deal of a cafe mocha. Medium-light body and fairly lively. Quite a bit of carbonic acid on the finish. This is a sledgehammer, flavor-wise. There’s a lot of flavor, but not much subtlety.

chinchill (4327) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 9, 2015
From a bottle. Chocolate dominates the coffee in the aroma but not in the flavor where they are rather equal. Light-medium sweet and moderately malty. O: very good but not up with Youngs Dbl Choc.
