2016-05-13. Black body with a nice tan head. 3+ Aroma of tangy roast, dusty cocoa accents. 6++ Flavour is similar, fairly fruity, tangy undertones feel out of place, light roast and muted cocoa. Average plus bodied palate, effervescent carbonation. Just okay, possibly a touch off? 6/3-4/6/3/12 On tap at Eureka Cafe & Bar, Dunedin, NZ.

A malt and bitter chocolate aroma with a hint of coffee. Pours a dark brown color with a lasting tan head. Medium body feel with a bitter chocolate and coffee taste with a hint of malt. The finish is like bakers chocolate.

500 ml bottle pours dark brown with tan head. Good lacing. Aroma is earthy and slightly smokey and sweet. Full bodied. Taste is smokey and bitter, slightly more acidic than what I like. As it warmed up it kinda tasted like meat funnily enough.

The best of a group of a sample palette at the brewery in New Zealand. A very smooth and ’creamy’ dark style brew. Highly recommended to try if you try any.

Coffee and malt on the nose, this beer has good chocolately undertones that have good length making it very easy to drink.
