3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep chocolate, with a decent head. Sweet confectioners chocolate on the nose and a hint of biscuit. Big roasted notes on the palate pushing through chocolate and coffee, with a drying almost tannic finish. Quite bitter helping a long finish. Carbonation is a little high but good stuff

Lovely dark chocolate colour with an off white quickly dissipating head. Hints of coffee and biscuit on the nose with a beautiful, smooth, rich coffee and chocolate taste. This beer is really smooth. I love it.

From a bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a thick lasting tan head, laces well, huge malty aroma with a hint of spice, roasted malt flavours and a medium bitterness on the back palate. Great beer.

Works out as a bitter English brown ale with Belgian yeast flavours and dark coffee-chocolate and caramel in the mix. Enjoyable for winter.

Big rich roasted nutty flavours. Has a warming feeling. A nice change from a style that I typically find watery and bland.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Way over carbonated, beer went everywhere upon opening too. Was excited by appearance and aroma to be hugely let down by taste and palate. Extremely bitter, none of the smoothness suggested by other reviewers. Must have been a bad bottle - undrinkable.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark brown colour with thin-medium tan head. Slightly sour cocoa nose. Citrus trying to come through, but is masked by the malt. Taste has nice complexity. Bitter chocolate with bread and dark toffee. Coats the palate nicely and has a lingering finish. Itís something different, but maybe not to my tastes.

on opening, beer everywhere. What an absolute mess and terrible way to start enjoying a beer. choc, carmamel and smoky aromaís, huge carbonation, battling with carbonation and froth to actually taste this. Fizzy is an understatement.
Gave it the paint shaker for 5 minutes. Smooth to taste, medium sweetness, a slight bitter finish.
Carbonation was dreadful, fix that and you have a pretty decent beer.
