Bottle from McTapps & MichaelAwesome - thank you! Pours cloudy very dark coffee brown with airy but stable light tan head. Clear aroma of chocolate, coffee, malt and liquorice. Sweet flavour of chocolate and liquorice, with notes of malt and coffee, and bitter, roasty touches. Dry aftertaste. Okay, quite decent, but nothing revolutionary.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle [thanks to my Euro Secret Summer Santa] @ home. Opaque pitch black color, medium sized light brown head that diminishes quite quickly but leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, a light roastyness, but I don’t get a lot more. Taste is a bit disappointing imo: malts, dark malts, only lightly bitter. Overall a bit flat and average, not nearly as full as I had expected and hoped. Some work to do imo.
