From bottle in porter glass. Pours jet black and this gives brownish hue to the head. Rich malt taste of chocolate and molasses, not a dessert beer, but works well with it!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL Champagne bottle from Slowbeer
Proper looking dark beer - jet black body, holds dense brown head.
Seriously intense aroma; lots of treacle/molasses/candy sugar thing going on, dark roast coffee, bitter cocoa, licorice & dried fruit/liqueur dessert wine undertones.
Thick oil, viscous texture, low carbonation, warming, once again, liqueur-like.
Big flavours explode on the palate - dark candy sugar, cocoa, black coffee, charred nuts, dried fruits. Big bitterness, warming finish, not particularly sweet - at all really!
Full on stuff - proper after dinner beer - doesn’t sugar coat chocolate/coffee thing.

Wow, smooth and chocolaty. Dark brown with medium airy beige head. Aroma is equal parts chocolate and roast grains. Taste is more so with a little smoke and wood. velvety smooth body, nice subtle bitter finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle tasted at Mane. Pours dark brown with a sticky tan head. Nose is loaded with vanilla, some brown sugar, smooth espresso and dark chocolate. Very decadent stuff with a heavy cocoa powder feel to the beer. Loads of mocha notes swinging towards a chocolate driven style. Not overly sweet which is pleasing. Very tasty
