tania_nexust (230) - Greater London, - OCT 25, 2012
Oddly this was very fizzy when first poured into the glass. Mid-brown in colour, it didn’t have a lot of discernible aroma. However it’s ‘lightness’ in comparison perhaps made it a little more gluggable, if not particularly outstanding flavour-wise. But if you wanted a lighter-style beer with hints of coffee rather than something heavy, this would fit the bill.

chinchill (2473) - 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.
