LCRBM 2009. Bottle looks very simple. Beer in the glass deep black. Roasty aroma. Starts very roasty-malty, smoky, notes of chocolate and liquorice. Finish milder, but warming aftertaste. Good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Almost black colored beer. Although the beer is called marble chocolate, I sence more mocca than coffee. Very one-dimensional.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beige-cream, small head over black beer. Stout-roasted grains, with aromas of lunaria, starfruit, etc. Sweet, roasted, with a long, just-not sourish flavour going into a bitter chocolate aftertaste. Medium bodied, lighter in the finish, spritzy. OK Porter, nothing special, saved by the bitter chocolate end.
