BOTTLE 341ML from bunget. Pitch black, espresso head. Strong aroma of cocoa and vanilla on a lightly roast background - feels like a desert. The flavour is light roast, smooth creamy body, pretty dry, moderate pungent bitter finish with a touch of ashes.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a bottle into a snifter. Opaque black with large thick light brown head leaving lots of lacing behind. Aromas of cocoa, roasted barley, vanilla, chocolate, cold coffee, prunes. Full body, oily mouth-feel, medium bitterness on the finish, slightly dry. moderate sweetness, medium carbonation, slightly salty. Huge vanilla finish, lingers for several minutes, a bit of the dry cocoa lingers also. Really well made, flavors work well together, nothing over the top, this is a great desert beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 341 ml bottle. Opaque black with a tan head that dissipated quickly. Dark chocolate and roasted malt on the nose. Those flavors continue on the palate with a hint of vanilla sweetness. Finish lingers with toasty goodness. A winner!
