olio (6276) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2012
50 cl bottle. BBE 14.06.2013.
Pours dark brown color with a huge, frothy beige head. Aroma is not too sweet with the chocolate, quite dry and fruity actually, some caramel linger on the background, mild hops and some burnt malts also. The flavor is also quite dry and ashy, not the essency and overly sweet chocolate bomb I was expecting, mild fruity notes, the burnt malt and caramel notes are there too. Medium CO2, dry malty palate with a subtle bitter finish. Quite nice actually, a positive surprise.

Pudding (182) - Birmingham, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2012
500ml bottle. Rather an odd one, this. Effervescence on tongue, sweet, unusual taste, , smokey finish.

AshtonMcCobb (2675) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 15, 2012
On cask @ the Marble Arch, Pours opaque black with a nicely proportioned head. The nose has dark chocolate with a hint of cream and perhaps going into coffee. The taste has more of the chocolate and coffee and there is a creamy background. The palate is rich and creamy and is fairly elegant though I’d hope it could have refreshed just a little bit more - suspect a second pint would have been too cloying.

Tasted on tap @Marbles on 31/11/2012. Pours of almost black with a lovely beige head. Aroma is elegant, though not very complex. Taste is pretty silky and roasty, slightly sour at the end. Aftertaste is quite roasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle from Beers Of Europe, King’s Lynn
Very dark color, almost black; small head; the pour is thin. Light aroma, some roasted malts and some yeast. Lean and dry mouthfeel; moderate flavor of roasted malts and chocolate, a bit herbal, with traces of yeast. Correct bitterness.
It has some feeling of dirty water, and minor flaws; not exceptional, but not bad.
