Opaque dark brown beer, good mid tan head. Palate is crisp and a little dry. Mild fine carbonation. Mild minerals. Powdery chocolate that is somewhere between dark and milk chocolate. Touch of candy fruits. Very mellow coffee cream. Light finish. Pleasant enough but lacks a little depth.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2014
Bottle, thanks to _Angst_, split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14. Light black with a moderate tan covering that clears to spotting and edgework. Nose is chocolate, light spice, roasty tones, dark toffee. Taste comprises dark fruits, mineral notes, chocolate, subtle spice, dark toffee fudge, roasty tones, vanilla. Medium bodied, fine carbonation. Not the most complex impy and doesn’t carry a whole lot of depth for close to double digit ABV however it’s a petty accessible easy drinking number and the alcohol is wll integrated.

RickTheRick (310) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
Une mousse brune chocolat très onctueuse émane d’une robe noire aux subtils reflets rouges. Un nez prononcé de chocolat, de vanille et de cannelle ne laisse pas présager la présence de piments forts dans cette bière. Cette présence se pointe finalement en toute fin de gorgée, mais c’est très nuancé. La carbonatation est faible, mais ce n’est pas un défaut, la bière étant soyeuse et onctueuse en bouche. Une bonne bière au chocolat épicé, mais rien d’explosif. Elle a probablement perdu un peu de vigueur au fil des années. Bouteille âgée de 2 ans (2012).
