3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pitch black, with a huge brown head. Aroma of yeast, spices, and malts. Not as complex as I was expecting. Very dry, with a slightly spicy and dry finish. Tasty but a bit overrated

Nicht gerade das, was man schlecht nennen würde. Recht süffig mit einer schönen schokoladigen Grundform, ein wenig Kaffee und etwas netter Würze zum Schluss. Nicht gerade scharf, aber stellenweise prickelnd und recht belebend.

Bottle from Desverger - many thanks! The beer had got a deep black colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of dark chocolate, malt and spiced. Wonderful taste of dark chocolate, pink pepper, grounded coffee, malt, woods and light exotic spices. Very smooth to drink, highly quaffable and enjoyable. Loved it.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with a very fine tan head. Nose is chocolate, dark, rich chilies, dates, subtle tobacco. Flavor is lots of dark chocolate verging on red berries, cocoa, espresso, maple syrup, subtle spicy chili. There’s sort of an unctuous nutty note that I feel may come from the avocado leaves. Finish is the chili without the heat, a little black pepper, subtle sweetness and a little smoke. Very rich, velvety and viscous mouthfeel. Feels more like a 10% beer in terms of mouthfeel, but without any hot alcohol notes. Really great as always.
