Aroma: Tootsie roll chocolate, a touch of cherry, light coffee. Appearance: Brown ruby with a light white head. Flavor: Matches the nose and dries out nicely. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Rather simple, but a nice one.

Definitely has a mocha aroma. A bit sweet and definitely chewy. Had way too warm but still okay.

Bottle. Dark brown with a small head. Coffee and chocolate dominate making for a pleasant and easy to sup beer.

coffee and chocolate, but it wont last so much.. a little artificial. Although it is a good idea for a cold day

Bottled; Not a bad chocolate/coffee beer for chicks or novices - the flaws are ovbious though . Too rich and one dimensional . The beer lacks finesse , some dry roastiness would smooth this out big time and make this more balanced and pleasant to drink. Generic kinda beer that attacks you really in intense Mocha texture.

Coffee and chocolate aroma and malts. In taste chocolate and coffee notes, little bit acidity and malty. Colour is deep dark, froth is quite big but not too strong.

Cocoa and chocolate aroma, coffee notes. Disappointing head. Dark amber color, almost black. Amazing coffee ice-cream taste, really hits you at the beginning. However, itís a bit superficial. There is not much on the palate, the finish is quick and the beer doesnít last.

Bottle from Sainsburys, Kidlington, Sunday 20th October 2013 consumed the same day. Pours brown with large foamy tan head. In the mouth this is chocolate and milky coffee, mmhh.. a touch artificial and not exactly subtle. Its easy drinking, sweet with some bitter cocoa, but all told it is a bit OTT, still it was reduced to £1.39 a bottle so Iím not complaining. Fine. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1
