3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head and a sweet chocolate- or mocca-like aroma with an almost sourish undertone. The taste is like a thick chocolate-pudding with cream, with hints of coffee with brown sugar, rhum, sour cherries, bitter malts and vanilla. The finish i s long and mildly bitter. A very nice beer!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Dark reddish brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of milk chocolate, sweet malts. Flavour is milk chocolate, light roasted malts and a some sourness from the carbonation. Light lingering bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth drinking. Suits the name, but there are better chocolate beers. Nice though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(33cl bottle) Hazy, ruby brown colour with a thick beige foamy head. Sweet and slightly acidic malty aroma with a fruity (cherry, redcurrant) touch and a distinctive dark chocolate praline character à la Mon Chéri. Bitter-sweet flavour with acidic fruity elements, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Moderately roasted malty and fruity taste with pronounced notes of dark chocolate and lighter accents of coffee. Mildly sweet and roasty bitter finish with chocolaty and slightly sourish notes. A beer which is surely not made for my daily use, at most an interesting experience (16.II.09).

Bottled from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Dark brown coloured, brown head. Nose of roasted malts, chocolate. Sweet flavour, again chocolate, enough bitterness in finish to compensate the initial sweetness. Great velvety mouthfeel. Pleasant beer, i like it a lot more than Meantime’s Coffee-beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2009 Bottled: Dark brown color, huge foamy beige head. Sourly aroma with coffe and dark chocolate notes. Flavor is quite sourly, intensive coffee and some dark chocolate notes. Maybe this sourly style is the typical for this beer or a had some bad look with my bottled. All in all in this version i don’t like this beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours reddish brown with a huge, beige and fluffy textured head. Sweet chocolatey aroma has cady sugar, some roastedness and hops. The finish is quite chocolatey, a bit burned and quite bitter. Flavor is surprisingly bitter, slightly metallic, roasted and theres some sourness of cocoa beans. Palate is very carbonated and fizzy: it was hard to catch the aromas. Medium bodied. Not very well balanced: the finish is too burned and the chocolate is hiding somewhere. The lack of balance and the carbonation makse me woder, if I had a bad bottle.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours deep dark brown. Aroma is full of sweet roasted malt, coffee and milk chocolate. Taste is very smooth, and has a coffee/chocolate flavor kind of hoppy.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ruby, syrupy brown colo with tanned, long-lasting, creamy head. Aroma is very sweet chocolatey, roasty malty with some coffee and hops. Flavor is roasty malty, hoppy, acidic and somewhat alcoholic with burned chocolate which is hidden though. Medium-bodied palate is fizzy and way too much carbonated.
