omhper (19337) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 30, 2010
Bottled at Monk’s Porterhouse, Stockholm. Completely black with rich creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate and tobacco. Very sweet with full body and soft mouthfeel. Intense chocolate and coffee, lots of sugar. Thick and syrupy, the powerful sweetness collides with bitterness into a sweet, inky sensation. Somehow reminiscent of a (more bitter) port, but with chocolate and coffee flavours.
