3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours a big beige head which persists not so long; very nice bouquet of dark chocolate, vanilla, mature fruit, banana, hints of spices. It’s taste is mellow and less roasty than i expected. Pleasant aftertaste of choco and coffee. Maybe I’d prefer it a little bit less chocolatey, but it’s though a very good beer.

Aroma of malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, some coffee. Flavour is medium sweet with a moderate bittersweet finish. Okay chocolate Porter, could be a bit thicker and more aromatic though.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr in Bonn. Clear, dark reddish-brown to almost black with foamy, stable, tan head. Weak aroma of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts and coffee. Some vinous notes in the end. Sweetish, malty, heavy taste of dark chocolate and cocoa with hints of coffee. Slightly bitter finish. Very nice! Full-bodied, creamy texture, no carbonation. Very good beer. I could drink much more than just this small bottle.

330 ml bottle @ The Local Pub, Athens Greece. Opaque black color with a beige white head. Aroma of chocolate and grains. Taste is black chocolate, malts, caramel. Not bad but pretty one-sided. Body is light with medium carbonation. What the name says. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours dark ruby red with 2cm off white head, dissapates quickly. Aroma is real chocolate, vanilla and dark fruits. Medium mouthfeel, could be thicker. Taste is quite sweet, chocolate vanilla and slight coffee, sufficient bitterness on the back end. I was dubious about this but surprisingly good, especially for less than 2 quid!

Great black appearance with beige head. Dark chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Tasty chocolate and bitterness in the taste. Texture is rather light, but also doesn’t have a high ABV. Nice.
