Bottle poured into tulip glass. Black-brown with a white-tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and chocolate, with subtle fruit notes. Taste is dark chocolate, quite dry and bitter. Mouthfeel is a little oily, finish is bitter. After rating, tried the rest of the bottle with chocolate truffles - lovely pair!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Room temp bottle. BB Feb 2014. Pours quite thin forming a black beer with a small ring of head. Smells of soy, gravy, yeast, chocolate sauce in roughly that order. Taste is semi-sweet chocolate, nut skins, leaves, yeast. Weird. Body is quite thin. Iíve stored it at room temp for a few months, so I can take some responsibility for any deterioration.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml. bottle. Pretty cool bottle, pours ana lmost black colour with asamll head that goes away in a minute, levaing some lace. Smell is chocolate, or rather chocolate liquor cream, I canít smell any other thing, even if chocolate is not really that pronounced. I also expected a thicker body. Taste is chocolate liquor cream, with notes of dark fruits, but again is somehow a faint one. Itís really pleasant, but it could be stronger in every sense. But Iíll try it again if i have the chance.
