Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a small tan head. Nose shows very sweet, fake chocolate and vanilla. A little one dimensional. 10% is well hidden. Loads of milk chocolate and sweet vanilla essence, touch of lactose. Solid but no wow factor

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz bomber with a badass label pours a pitch black with a creamy, dark tan head that sticks around the rim. Chocolate on the nose, with some very apparent Acetaldehyde and DMS. Velvety mouthfeel and milk chocolate cannot hide the flaws. Chocolate and booze in the finish. The more it warms up, the more squashy aroma and flavor come through. Bummer.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black as the night with a quickly fading dark tan head.
Nose shows roasted malt, cocoa, dark chocolate, alcohol and earthy coffee notes. Tempting!
Very decadent flavours. A fair bit of chocolate is noticeable alongside bready roasted malt. Quite and aggressive finish of roasty bitterness and alcohol.
Needs a creamier mouthfeel.
