AshtonMcCobb (3675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2011
50cl bottle. Dark-brown/black in colour - generally opaque but some glints of light around the edges. It has a thick creamy head! On the nose there is sweet malt and a hint of coffee. The taste has much more coffee and some miilk chocolate. The palate is a little more than medium-bodied, the texture is very creamy and the end is quite elegant - no alcohol burn, just a gentle clean finish. The overall impression is of a very enjoyable beer, rich but restrained.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JAN 23, 2011
Deep black with a persistent off-white head. Big, ballsy chocolate and charred coffee beans. Smooth medium body, bitter finish. Watered-down Guinness on steroids. And that isn’t meant to be an insult.

Alphadelic (1880) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2009
This fizzed the shit all over me. Looks a bit thin. Nice thick and sweet buttery aromas. A bit green in the mouth followed by a good smoky flavour and pretty dry aftertaste. Chocolate is pretty apparent all the way through. Quite light and airy. Pretty boring but not unpleasant.
