Erasmus_ro (1289) - Alabama, USA - NOV 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Bottle. Pours black as oil and looks as viscous. No head at all really. Some large, mocha-colored bubbles on the sides. In the beginning the aroma is a lot of cocoa and by lot I mean a lot. It overpowers everything else. Maybe some roast, a tad of liquorice. But really, not much else besides the cocoa. Later on the liquorice and roast get stronger. After the aroma the taste is a surprise. A lot of roast and coffee, some liquorice, rather dry. A bit of hops in the finish: Grapefruit, citrus, a tad of wood. No cocoa or chocolate in sight. No carbonation at all really, maybe a little bit. Should have more definitely. Feels oily.

Garrold (1149) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2013
Bottle from The Beer Parlour, Chesterfield. Looks like melted chocolate when pouring. Darkest chestnut brown. Thin, tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate. Some morello cherry liquour. Very boozy. Taste is an instant demerara sweetness that rapidly gives way to a quite astringent, red fruit dryness. Very tasty beer.
