Rich chocolate malty nose. Likewise in taste with a balanced sweetness. A bit fruity and caramell in aftertaste too. Smooth.

A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted combined with notes of chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of coffee, and chocolate, as well as light wood notes. The finish is like a good bitter dark dessert chocolate.

Sharp aroma I can’t really place, but it smells vaguely of cheese wax. Dark brown to black with a MASSIVE mocha head. Bitter fore with some very mild roastiness and even milder chocolate notes in the middle and finish. Body is thin giving this an almost porter-like feel.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Black colour, mediumsized brown head. Wonderful chocolaty, roasted malty aroma with hints of cream (fudge). Chocolate, roasted malt and some soapish hints in flavour. Also some wooden hints in flavour. The flavour is kind of weak link in this one though.

12 oz. bottle. very dark pour with a tan head. the head fades to a slight ring as the beer warms for a few minutes in my glass. aroma hints of coffee, chocolate and some vanilla bean. flavors are pretty much the same, but they just don’t seem to come together in an even or balanced way.
