Wonderful. Really wonderful, I still wonder how much luck I had to drink that one. Wonderful thick with some coffee, roasted malt and an unbelievable sweet finish which offers the tastiest sugar you can imagine. Wonderful.

Bière brune tirant vers le noir avec une légère mousse chocolat au lait qui laisse une dentelle sur le verre. Nez de malt, chocolat, café et raisins secs. Amertume moyenne, le chocolat domine, notes de café et de malts grillés. Corps assez lourd. L’amertume est peristente. Très bonne porter.

From 12oz bottle.
Pours jet black with a caramel colored head. Daaaarrrrkkk chocolate aroma. Not Hershey’s Dark Chocolate (which is not bad), but a real Swiss Dark Chocolate... Flavor is dominated by that same daaaaaaarrrkkk chocolate, in a very good way.
Not a beer to be drunk frequently - a bit powerful for that. But it will be found and drunk again.

Pen & Paper Log (Mar 2011)
Aroma - rich roast, bitter chocolate, and burnt sugar
Appearance - the body looks just like it’s namesake. The head is brown, and compressed tight about 1" thick, with a nice silk stocking all the way down.
Taste - taste has a dark bitter chocolate with a roasty burn. There are also elements of espresso.
Palate - body full; texture creamy, sticky, and thick; and the finish long and strong finish of that roast bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ingredients: Pale malt; Roasted barley; Oats; Washington Galena, Worcester Fuggles and Kent Goldings hops.
A superb, rich, full-bodied beer derived from a 1970s homebrewing recipe. Wickedly smooth chocolate dominates the flavour, which is nicely balanced by the bitterness of the hops.
