Intense roasted malts, coffee, awesome chocolate.. dunno.. I have tried more chocolaty brews, but this one was kinda bullseye for what I like, licorice , bit fruity. Smooth Nicely balanced brew.
Ofc.. its not very close to iconic beers, but anyways.. pleasantly enjoyable

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, 355 ml.
Deep dark brown to black in colour with a small creamy beige head on its top.
Smell of in alcohol dipped cherries and chocolate.
The rather mild, but complex aroma brings dried cherries, coffee, caramel and chocolate along.
Mouthfeel is slick to oily.
The finish is long and sweetbitter escorted by mild licorice, gently warming alcohol and cherries.
Refined and delicious.
