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

Gary (1889) - 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.

vami (380) - Poznan, POLAND - NOV 4, 2013
Cocoa and chocolate aroma, coffee notes. Disappointing head. Dark amber color, almost black. Amazing coffee ice-cream taste, really hits you at the beginning. However, it’s a bit superficial. There is not much on the palate, the finish is quick and the beer doesn’t last.

Fin (9684) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle from Sainsburys, Kidlington, Sunday 20th October 2013 consumed the same day. Pours brown with large foamy tan head. In the mouth this is chocolate and milky coffee, mmhh.. a touch artificial and not exactly subtle. Its easy drinking, sweet with some bitter cocoa, but all told it is a bit OTT, still it was reduced to £1.39 a bottle so I’m not complaining. Fine. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

Christopsy (137) - SCOTLAND - OCT 11, 2013
Bottle from Sainsburys at Claypotts near Dundee. Pours black with a creamy white head. Smells of chocolate with a slight coffee bean. Tastes of dark chocolate and more chocolate! I love this beer.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Appearance: Clear dark ruby/brown with loose, large bubbled tan head about a cm thick. Aroma: Chocolate, notes of bitter chocolate, toast and amaretto biscuit. Taste: Low sweetness, and low/medium bitterness and sourness. Palate: Smooth thick texture and medium body, slightly prickly carbonation, lingering finish sourness and bitterness at the end. Comments: Very tasty, it was a bit like a dessert, very easy to drink and left a glass lace.
