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 Iíve ever had.

Bottle - a gift from Uncle Phil - cheers! Definitely a sweet beer, enormously chocolatey in fact. Grainy texture and tooth eroded satisfaction. Fairly pleasant and saved, I reckon, by its good alcohol levels, which provide warmth.

One for the sweet tooths. The aroma tells you exactly what youíll get: chocolate, and lots of it. A touch of vanilla and, as for the coffee, I only noticed a slight under-extracted astringency peeking around the edges of the totally dominant bully-boy belgian chocolate. Well made, but I prefer a bit more bitterness with my chocolate.

50cl bottle. Appearance - deep black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - light coffee, milk chocolate and honeycomb. Some molasses or liquorice at the back. Taste - more molasses, more honeycomb and creamy chocolate. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - quite enjoyable.

Butelka .kolor ciemby wrecz czarny piana mala palona. W zapachu dominuje kawa i kakao. Mimo 6 % nie czuc nic . Kawa lekko wodnista aparycja. Piwo ciekawe ale nie dobre smak kawy zabil walory piwa.

PINT tasting. Coffee, mocha aroma, light chocolate notes. Dark ruby red, small foam ring remaining. Nice coffee taste, not too strong. Little aftertaste. (Arnhem 201512)

Bottle courtesy of Mike. Cheers! Pours pours ruby with a frothy cream head. The aroma is strong sweet coffee and chocolate with a slightly synthetic feel. The taste is similar. Overwhelming mocha flavourings over a slightly spicy beer. Very much tastes like a lot of coffee and beers flavourings have been added to a very everage beer after the brew. The flavours are strong and very sweet, but well crafted this is not. Pretty bad really but at least it has some sort of character.

ReV2 (170) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2015
A well balanced beer with coffee and chocolate evident (of course) but not too overpowering like some Iíve tasted. A good malt base, quite sweet & fruity. Better than expected.

500ml bottle. Pours dark red, almost black with a thin tan head. Sweet chocolate aroma, chocolate and coffee dominate the flavour. Thin mouthfeel but otherwise great
