3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle. Aroma is wierd with some chocolate notes, roasted malt and some sugar. Taste is really sweet with lots of chocolat,dark fruits and some acid notes. Almost some sour notes aswell. Pretty unbalanced but still a very nice experience!

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.

Bottle, cheers Phil_L and beermerchants.com! Dark brown, almost black, has a reddish tint, fierce big bubbled head that threaten to stain my dressing gown but calmed down to leave a nice beige head. Curse my youth and the resulting fked up nose. Can’t smell much as usual, I get chocolate though. As is obvious in the taste. Coffee and chocolate in the flavour. I like the Youngs chocolate but all other chocolate beers I’ve had (I’m a beer rating novice) have been awful. And this has a decent abv. This is a good un!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Untypical beer bottle(330ml). -Dark brown coloured, medium sized brown head, chocolate nose. Light roasted malt, bitter coffee and sweet chocolate taste with notes of cocoa in rather bitter finish. Very smooth, goes well with pudding and dark chocolate. As my girlfriend said, the biggest flaw of this beer is that the bottle is too small. Underrated beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep dark brown color. Salt and licorice in the aroma. Roasty, salty flavor. hardly any chocolate, just a hint of dark chocolate, especially in the aftertaste. Powerful stout, maybe a bit thin, but aromatic and full of flavor.
