3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33cl. Black with a foamy brown head. Coffee aroma but also some metallic. Rich taste of chocolate and some coffee. Some bitter hops are present but I miss the balance as the malt is heavily present but the hops are too "light". The balance is not right.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Przychodzi mi na my?l belgijska czekolada zakl?ta do postaci p?ynnej, aksamitnej i pe?nej smaku. Do perfekcji brakuje niewiele, a? si? chce wype?nia? praliny tym przyjemnym eliksirem.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark candied fruits, plum, raisin, leather in the aroma; near black color, khaki head; really sweet and malty, dried fruits, some leather and milk chocolate, hints of spice, licorice and spruce, I like it more and more as it warms; medium body, smooth; I really like it, it’s complex and has depth, but is a touch too sweet for my preference right now.

ASPETTO: marrone scuro, in pratica nero impenetrabile. Schiuma marroncina, fine, persistente e abbastanza abbondante.
AROMA: caldo e avvolgente, prugne , ciliegie sotto spirito, leggero tostato.
GUSTO: dolce, ma una dolcezza stemperata dal tostato, liquorosa, calda e avvolgente. Veramente un capolavoro.
