3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is milk coffee with a gentle toffee. Colour is dark ruby and mahogany, a bit like a less carbonated cola. Not much lacing and quickly dissipating head. Taste is gentle but clear coffee followed by chocolate and caramel. The chocolate aftertaste is long lasting. Slightly thin in the mouth, with gentle carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
