Bottle that I picked up from Kris Wines, Camden area, Sunday 31st March 2013 consumed at home on Saturday 13th April 2013. Pours dark brown with nice cappucino coloured head, fruity with a light sourness on nose. Taste is fruity, I get a little orange, coffee and tangy fruit. Mmmhhh.... actually this is quite tart and whilst not great, its still enjoyable. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Si presenta di colore marrone scuro; la schiuma è cremosa, compatta e di buona persistenza. Al naso è sorprendente, sentori di caffè tostato, cioccolato e tocchi raffinati di agrumi. Al palato, troviamo lo stesso contrasto percepito al naso; gli aspetti torrefatti sono perfettamente bilanciati con le note agrumate. Ritroviamo anche caffè e cioccolato fondente, con una luppolatura che dona un piacevole finale amarognolo. Una birra dal corpo e dalla carbonazione media.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark, brown/black color, medium sized tan head. Aroma of vanilla, cocoa and dark chocolate. Taste is insane. Begins with dark chocolate, than continues with some orange notes and when you think it’s all over, dark chocolate returns during the finish with addition of cocoa bitterness and some spices. Body is maybe too light, average to soft carbonation. All in all great. //svijet piva

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - 330ml. Pours a black, opaque body with a thin, lasting, beige foamy head. Very interesting malty/hoppy aroma with roasted coffee and subtle orange hints. Its very well balanced taste carries roasty, woody, herbal, and zesty notes. Ends with a long, robust bitter/roasty finish. Very good.
