Super dense aromas, head that lasts for minutes leaving giant laces behind, mouthfeel is creamy yet dry and dense, finish is complex as well as the palate. Well done. Did I say it’s only 6.6%?

Pitch black with creamy brown froth. Aroma has dark chocolate, cocoa and vanilla. Chocolate and coffee flavour, chili and vanilla. Chili vanilli... haha. Light mouthfeel but pretty flavourful for the ABV. Good spiced porter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very complex aroma with bread, burnt coffee and chocolate. Black color, with very minimal brown head. Taste has light sweetness, lightly bitter but not really spicy. Full body, thick feel, fizzy, long finish. I was hoping more spicyness so more chili please. This beer was not bad but I was hoping a bit more. Probably need to revisit this review later after second bottle.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (30A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: strong cocoa aroma with slight spicy chili notes and very faint smoky notes. APPEARANCE: very dark brown to black color and opaque. average Brown head with average retention. TASTE: strong roasted flavour with notes of unsweetened cocoa with a very faint spicy hot felling and very faint vegetable flavour from chilis and avocado leaves. medium bitterness from roasted ingredients and not from hops with a dry finish. PALATE: medium-high body with medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: a stout-like beer with a lot of ingredients that are imparted by a strong rosted cocoa flavour.
