MrHangover (2954) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle @ THT February. Pours an inky black beer with a medium sized, tanned head on top that leaves great lacing and is nice and creamy. Aroma has a tonne of chocolate, but also some cofee and red fruits detected here. Nice, strong aroma with a boozy background. Flavor is medium bitter with loads of dark chocolatey sweetness in there. Great complexity, a bit low on carbonation and a silky, sticky mouthfeel. Nice one!
