3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cL bottle. Pours black with a creamy brown head. Slight fruity and chocolate smooth aroma. Fruity and hoppy bitter flavour at first. A decent portion of chocolate smoothness apears a second after this. Finish is rather smooth in flavour and mouthfeel with a dry hoppy bite into the far finish. Very nice. I remember tasting the first homebrew batch of this back in Autumn 2004, that was a lot more liqourice heavy compared to this - which barely has any liqourice at all apart from a minor edge into the far finish. If this had the smoothness and full body of Dark Lord or Darkness this would belong into the top 50.

Bottled. A black beer with a slight brown shine under a huge dark chocolate brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, and coffee - medium roasted. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of chocolate and medium notes of cocoa, coffee, and roasted malt, leading to a dry roasted finish with a slight coffee acidity and a whiff of grapefruity hop note lingering. The alcohol is felt in the mouth and tickles the tongue lightly.
