(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelrote Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer kleinen fast weißen Schaumkrone. Beim Aroma kommt kurz eine alkoholische Süße, dann eine starke, leicht röstige Zahrtbitterschokoladennote. In der kopfnote findet sich etwas Sauerkirsche. Der Geschmack ist ist schlank, mit viel Schokolade, nur leicht röstig und im Hintergrund die leichte Säure.

s_hartshorne (1093) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle m&s. Redish black colour shortlived tan head. Aroma is deffinatley mocha but nothing to blow your head off. Taste is great hit of coffee with a smooth creamy hot choclate shortly after v nice bittersweet finish. Great body quite low carbonation. This beer does ’exactly what it says on the tin’ as an old fence builder once said to me!

Aroma: Tootsie roll chocolate, a touch of cherry, light coffee. Appearance: Brown ruby with a light white head. Flavor: Matches the nose and dries out nicely. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Rather simple, but a nice one.

Definitely has a mocha aroma. A bit sweet and definitely chewy. Had way too warm but still okay.

coffee and chocolate, but it wont last so much.. a little artificial. Although it is a good idea for a cold day

Gary (1338) - Brentford, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottled; Not a bad chocolate/coffee beer for chicks or novices - the flaws are ovbious though . Too rich and one dimensional . The beer lacks finesse , some dry roastiness would smooth this out big time and make this more balanced and pleasant to drink. Generic kinda beer that attacks you really in intense Mocha texture.

Coffee and chocolate aroma and malts. In taste chocolate and coffee notes, little bit acidity and malty. Colour is deep dark, froth is quite big but not too strong.

Bov (9335) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 14, 2013
from Bier-Bienne - very dark brown beer with a little foam left; strong aroma of mocha and sweet chocolate; sweet and with a good malt backbone; gently oily, light residual sweetness and long aftertaste of chocolate and cacao
