Towering beige head, slowly collapsing over ruby-brown beer, leaving shards of lacerings. Sweet chocolate nose, and some faint, ureum-rich hops. Bitter-hoppy flavour, with a bit of ashes, coffee, and some more chocolate. Thankfully tasting as bitter chocolate, not as Cadbury’s (I was weary...) The hops are, however, all that remains in the aftertaste. Seen the rich, velvety body, enlightened by good carbonation, palate gets a well-earned 5. ’t Would seem that British brewers are getting the hang of bottle-conditioned special beers. This one is pretty outstanding.

BeerCast_Rich (1879) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2010
[750ml bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Pours dark black, with a fluffy white head. Quite an interesting hop aroma, with chocolate malt and some slight sherry notes. Bitter hop flavour, chocolate on the aftertaste with some coffee – unusually hoppy for a chocolate beer but really rather good [14112010]

Bottle; My Brewery Tap. Wow. This is special. Bags of chocolate on aroma; leather, some light perfume, some citric hops. Amazing dark guey opaque colour, thick white lacing, excellent and lasting. Taste is chccolate; leather, hazlenut, liquorish, roast, roasted malts, toffee, espresso coffee, excellent bitterness, some Terry’s Chocolate Orange with minimal orange, heart-warming and long roasted bitter hot-chocolate finish which is also silky smooth with vanilla. This is sensational. Packs a punch with the big boys. Awesome way to celebrate my year on Rate Beer. Edit - 12th November 2011. As I get through this 75cl bottle I realise there is a gorgeous peppery and chilli kick back going on. WOW.

PotjeBier (1688) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2010
Gravity cask @ In De Wildeman. Dark colored, no head. Was served a bit too cold. Aroma’s of fruit, grassy hops, malt. Chocolate kicks in with the flavor, slightly sweet. Quite full bodied. Dry finish with lots of bitter chocolate. Although a very unusual beer for the UK, it’s still very British, especially aroma wise. Very nice.
