Almost clear, deep red - amber beer. Tidy pale tan head. Palate is light and smooth and dry. Somewhat artificial tasting chocolate, like chocolate powder. Light fruity tang with a touch of red berries. Light dry finish. Inoffensive.

Bottle at KØ14. Sweet coffee and vanilla syrup aroma. Clear dark chestnut colour. Small off-white head. The flavour is sweetish with a good coffee note. Hint of vanilla in the finish, but not as much as feared.

harrisoni (13559) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
500ml bottle from Sainsburys Ashford. Thin camp coffee type beer. Yes it’s got some choc and some coffee life, but it’s a bit thin in the body. Nothing wrong with it. Just if you are going to do this style of beer actually through a bit more intensity at it. If you are going to play with the big boys, then bring some noise. It’s fine. It’s a good step in the right direction for this type of brewery. But be big and bold and go for it.

Leighton (10674) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle at home with Lyoli. Pours clear, red-brown with a fine, tan foam head. Aroma holds tons of fragrant chocolate, some dark malts. Medium sweet flavor, lots of chocolate bar, plenty of vanilla, some brown bread. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, more chocolate, mellow bitterness, mild filter coffee, some toasty bread. An alright beer. The character is dominated by a not altogether natural-tasting chocolate, but it’s decent stuff none the less.
