3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
66 cL bottle, thanks to Grovlam for putting the bottle on the table and ChristianSA for a sample at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a dense light brown head. Mild malty and chocolate aroma. Flavour is solid chocolate malty, slight vague and with a decent bitterness from chocolate and hops into the finish. Nice brew, but the Svaneke version was closer to the somewhat special Kjaerstup chocolate flavour in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Chris_o pre GBBF Shindig 08. Black, some ruby. Thin beige. Good bitter choc aroma. It’s an ok choccy beer, again, just lacks some body. It’s ok, I guess, decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 66cl, from trade with faroeviking. A black beer with a brown head. Bitter chocolate and coffee in the aroma. A bit one-dimentional maybe. The same goes for the flavor, where dark chocolate and coffee does the work. Very low on bitterness, low on sweetness and fruityness. Dry and full-bodied. Coffee and dark chocolate in the finish too. Lifting the focus from only chocolate and coffee, and adding something else would be a fine idea for the brewer, but it is still a fine brew. Some dark chocolate to go with the beer also lifts the experience. (081003)

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. [thank you, myrup]
Pours dark brown, bordering on black. A very large brown, fizzy head. Aroma is heavy dark chocolate, cocoa and a slight touch of vanilla. Rather high carbonated, small bubbles and a little thin for its 6,0% Flavour is lots of sweet chocolate, some astringency, lightly roasted. Fine, but very chocolatey and a bit thin.
