3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest 2013. Was told they were out of this when I arrived on the Saturday but there was still some left in the keg when another guy tried to get some for me, and a few other people around me even though it was off the list. Dark black with no head. Lots of chocolate, vanilla, lactose, roasted malts, and alcohol. Low carbonation, moderate+ body, bitter on the palate with a slight alcohol burn and powdery chocolate finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Brewery.
Pours a very dark brown with nearly no head.
Aroma is a bit roasted with notes chocolate milk and a touch of sweetness.
Taste is sweet but not sickly. Roasty, creamy, chocolate aftertaste with a bit of alcohol taste and warmth.
Full body with a low carbonation. Creamy mouth feel.
Very nice offering with lots of flavour and texture. Would be good for a cold night. Which is good because I hear this will be bottled sometime around November 2013. Yay!!!
