4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A gorgeous black beauty with a compact brown head and ultra fine carbonation. Roasty aroma of plums, dark chocolate, coffee, port, alcohol, and flowers. Very port-like flavor and body. Moderately bitter. The sweetness is subtle and the chocolate presence is restrained and very nice. Warms wonderfully and the aftertaste is great.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Birra davvero importante. Naso non molto pronunciato ma in bocca recupera alla grande. Vellutata e morbida, malto tostati e tanto cioccolato fondente. Al palato risulta densa e calda,davvero intensa. Una vera birra da dessert che merita il punteggio massimo.

Beautiful, thick and black. Sweet chewy texture, tan lacing, heavy (in a good way) taste. Well worth the high rating.

As another reviewer stated - black chocolate goodness. Pours almost black with little head. Thin taste that I did enjoy. Strong mocha aftertaste.

Black chocolate syrupy goodness. Great beer full of amazing roast malt and chocolate aroma. Nothing to complain about. Enjoyed thoroughly. Will be buying another bottle to cellar.

Milk chocolate smell, strong coffee aroma, dark chocolate look, coffee bean, chocolate bitter after taste, you can taste the alcohol the ABV might be too strong for some. Very good stout!

Draft at Crunchys. Nice dark color with brown-tan head. Nice chocolate aroma. The beer doesn’t do a great job of hiding the alcohol though.

Pours black with brown head. Head wasn’t what I expected but maybe down to pour. Chocolate caramel smooth flavour. Doesn’t cover the alcohol bitterness but warms on a cold night. Good.
