3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Di color nero spento, opalescente con schiuma cremosa. Al naso, e anche in bocca, è di un amaro tostato delicato e sa di cioccolato. Di corpo watery, assomiglia molto ad una mild più che ad una stout.

Bottle. Dark brown. Roasty nose, with a bit of chocolate, dark berries and saltyish licorice. But quity dry roasty nose overall. Body lightish. Salt licorice, some coffee, dark fruits. Quite nice actually. Loads of flavours. A bit also of the milkshaky chocolate promised by the label.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 5.2%. Best before 30.06.13. Pours a clear dark brown with a big, frothy khaki head. Good lacing. Sweetish, roasted roma with a remote note of coffee and a slightly dusty and tart overtone. Chocolate note as it warms. Further warming brings out a note of dark fruits and berries. Tart, roasted flavour. Remote metallic and cardboard note as it warms. Mildly bitter coffee finish, lingering latté note with a touch of chocolate. Light tart berry note as it warms. Overall okay, the finish is better than the initial flavour, which seems a bit dull. 28.04.13.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle, present from a friend. Pours a dark ruby brown with a thin bubbly head that disappears quickly. Almost absent aroma, light molasses and bready hints, no chocolate whatsoever - not great. Medium bitterness and a very light smoky sweetness, better taste than aroma. Very light hint of chocolate, more watery molasses. Way too carbonated, yet a slightly thin mouthfeel. Not a chocolate stout as far as this drinker is concerned, and not a good stout anyway. Won’t be drinking this again.
