4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black colored with little dark brown head. Extremely rich aroma with roastiness, vanilla, chocolate, licorice and grassy hops. Near full bodied, velvety palate. Flavor is even richer and better with fine and balanced roasted vanilla note, aftertaste turns to hopped with some berries. Slightly sweet sticky palate, still excellently balanced brew with nice hops.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a big dense dark brown head.
Aroma is roasted coffee, dark fruit and dark chocolate.
Flavor is so nicely balanced and full-bodied. Chocolate, dark fruits, roasted coffee and roasted malts, that adds up and gives a nice bitter aftertaste.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours like dark chocolate milk with a tall lasting head thats rest like a pancake for the duration of the session.Highly aromatic smelling like bitter cocoa and roasted coffee beans. Full and viscous with superb carbonation giving this a creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of roasted coffee intertwined with bitter cocoa with only a touch a sugar. This brew is rich and fattening while retaining sublime sense of balance. The finish leaves a lingering chocolate roasted chestnut essence. Excellent brew.
