4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to Rob! Pours opaque black with a large brown head which recedes to a modest layer. The citrus smacks your nose as soon as the cap is popped, vanilla, oak and dark chocolate form the aroma. Taste is chocolate sweet, vanilla sweet, caramelised sugar, slight hint of citrus and sweet orange liqueur, a hint of cocoa bitterness somewhere in the back row. Full body with a smooth mouthfeel.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle via trade, split at ChrisO tasting, London. It pours a dark brown / black color with a medium creamy brown head. Aroma is rich and roasty, with boozy orange notes, vanilla, cocoa powder, lactose, charred oak and orange marmalade. Taste is again quite charred and dry with good medium sweetness of milk chocolate, orange marmalade, vanilla ice cream. More orange liquor and light ashes and espresso in the finish. Full bodied with creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, super tasty and well rounded

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Pours thick and black with a small, brief, beige head. The aroma features fudge among a lot of weird, sweet, marmalade-like notes. Full-bodied with a viscous mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor features burnt, bitter charcoal, accompanied by only a whisper of Grand Marnier. Finishes with acrid, carbonic, burnt and bitter unpleasantness. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!
