The color is dark as one could expect stout style beer being, and same typical way head is quite short mildly brown and disappears quickly. Taste is quite rough, bit sweet, and has charcoal. Soon chocolate kicks, and aroma turns lighter. This may be one of the very best supermarket beers I’ve ever had.

DIBBLE (86) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle from Sainsburys, Christchurch, Dorset. Huge chocolate and coffee aroma. Brief fizzy tan to nonexistent head over deeply dark reddish tinged beer. Lively and full mouthfeel. Sweet and lightly bitter with a dry sweet finish. Coffee and chocolate through and through. Malty bass notes.

AWS9 (532) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle. Sweet coffee and chocolatey mocha. Bit too sweet, but may work better as a dessert beer option. One to split I think. Touch of stickiness, but certainly hits the sweet tooth nicely.

sarauckelman (247) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
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 (363) - 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.
