Bottle… Pours dark brown with shimmers of purple and a mid-sized, frothy, beige head. The nose is a roasty, fruity swirl of chocolate, vanilla, dark and red berries, espresso and subtle dustiness. Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. The flavor is chocolaty, fruity, and full of toffee and caramel sweetness with only a trace of berry-like acidity. Finishes fruity and sweet. Rich. Enjoyability is fairly high. Drinkability is low. Bottle courtesy of Elliesbrown!

Bottle @ Natifest / Cincinnati OH --- Opaque black color, rim head, no lace. Tasted is roasted malt with mild vanilla and maybe a little raspberry. Very little bittering in a very warm alcohol finish. Quite strong, a big alcohol presence, consistency of syrup, wouldn’t take much to be enough.

Thanks to Don for sharing this one in Cologne! Smooth-mild. Very smooth. Chocolate, toffee, espresso. Deep in aroma, the aftertaste is long, intense-deep, not too roasted. Sourish-fresh, also in the aftertaste :)
