Bottle at home in a goblet. Pours a dark black with ample tan head. Some mild lace. Aroma is milk chocolate and cocoa nibs, roasted malts, Whoppers, nuget. Taste is quite sweet chocolate, nuget, roasted malts, some cloves, and caramel. Very sweet. Thick velvet mouth. Overall OK but not really my favorite style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Hasegawa. Pours a deep brown to black with a small latte colored ring around the edge. Roasted malt aromas abound with some fresh prune. Cola-like mouthfeel with some roasty bitterness on the palate. Sourness comes out as it warms along with some light creamer. Body is pretty thin and slightly watery though. Pretty average beer that doesn’t come together that well. Bitter and watery finish.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Flavours and smells of roasts, coffee, cola. Pretty moreish - a little tangy and quite dense all at once. Lovely

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a jet black with a thin off-white head. Aroma is some caramel, but there’s a sourness that dominates. I wonder what makes it sour. Flavor is sweet caramel and toffee, with just a little bit of sourness. Has a nice smooth body. This is okay. Not undrinkable, but odd.
