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.

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.

A well balanced beer with coffee and chocolate evident (of course) but not too overpowering like some I’ve 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

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 Glorious coffee and chocolate aroma, nearly the creaminess of a stout. For coffee lovers.

DIBBLE (102) - 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 (582) - 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.
