4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz. bottle. Pours opaque black with a brown foamy head that rises slowly and stays. Clean chocolate, toasty aroma. A soft carbonation propels a heavy, but not syrupy, soft sweetness under a complex balanced and heavy malt body. The hot alcohol is very subdued. The body is solid without being sticky. This is a great sipping beer, and after savoring every sip, you come back for more. There is a long sweet, chocolate, malt finish that tapers gradually.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared bottle. Black with small beige head. Marzipan, chocolate, sweet herb candies, very sugary, some cognac notes, roasted bitter coffee, strawberry jam, Italian herbs. Very sweet with light roasted bitter finish. Medium to full bodied with quite some booze. Nice stuff, but very sweet and boozy without the matching thick body or strong aroma. Still nice though.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
From a 355ml bottle on 11/5/2015. Pours a very dark brown with a small head. Has a strong malty aroma, featuring masses of chocolate and caramel, a hint of roastiness and a whiff of booze.The flavour is just massive - super sweet with dark and milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, fugde, cocoa, licorice, vanilla and treacle, set off against burnt/roasted malt, soy and some firmish hops. Has a sticky, syrupy texture with soft carbonation. This is a crazy, huge, complex, delicious, truly magnificent dessert beer.
