3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from Tomlinsons. Pours a dark brown with no head. Minimal aroma, slight hazelnut, chocolate and cough drop. Also, a tad herby. Tastes like a very watery chocolate milkshake (as you’d expect, I suppose). Floral, and bit oily on the palate. Bitter, light body. Not offesnsive but I’ve definitely tasted better from Brewfist.

Highly carbonated. Certainly sweet but not overly, the carbonation .... lots of bubbles .... helps to stop cloying. Some chocolate but not that much. Nice but not outstanding.

330ml bottle. Darkest reddish brown colour with average to huge, firm, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Dark malty aroma with notes of chocolate and unroasted coffee.

0.33 L bottle ordered from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk. A finger of big-bubbled tan head, over a translucent dark ruby brown body. Dryish cocoa and nutty malts to the nose. A light chocolatey scent maybe, but its hard to pin-point.
Light body. Slick mothfeel. Light sweet, light peppery, light roasty malt base. Firm bitterness. Some chocolate malts in a quite short finish. Drinks good.
