Aroma: roasty, dominated by chocolate with some coffee; Appearance: black with dirty head that dissipates fairly quickly; some lacing; Taste: sweet, chocolatey, balanced by some bitterness and coffee; better balanced than other chocolate/coffee beers I’ve had; Palate: full, creamy body with average carbonation; wonderful long bittersweet finish; Overall: not my absolute favorite style of beer but a great example; would definitely buy again.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
33cl bottle at home. Pours opaque black with thick, creamy, diminishing beige head. Medium to full body, fair lacing, rich oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation, dry bitter finish. Aromas of roasted barley, black coffee, dark chocolate. Similar tastes on the tongue well balanced by hoppy bitterness, hints of lemon, citrus peel, resin. At some point sweetness comes back with hints of milk chocolate, caramel, and dried fruits. Was perfectly paired with dark chocolate filled with almonds, which added to the overall experience. Superb ale!
