"the richness of the body and flavor of this beer totally hides the fact that itís only 4% abv. there is chocolate and some smoke on the nose. the feel is rich and very smooth. the finish smooth as well. my friend got way more smoke than i did out of this beer. i thought it was more like a thin bodied milk stout. sweet and tastes like malted chocolate with a hint of smoke. if this came in 6 packs, iíd be drinkiní it lots!"

Bottle. Very dark with tan head that dissipated and light lacing. I get chocolate-cherry, tobacco, light play-doh, and roastiness. Nice dry bitter flavor with some coffee on the finish. Heavy on the carbonation.

From the bottle poured a dark brew with little head. Nice subtle aromas of earthy, roasty malt and a hint of chocolate. Flavor was all the above, a bit dry, with very little hoppyness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50 cl bottle from Liviko Alcostore in Tallinn harbour (Ä 3,20), Sept 2014. BB Apr 2016. Pours an extremely dark brown (black in the glass) with a dark tan head that rather quickly drops down, leaving a thin layer and some beautiful lacing. Nose... very distinct Golding hops and roasted malts - to me this is gives off a strange "rubbery British sourness" I cannot seem to get accustomed to. I also get raw cocoa beans. Taste is more roasty with notes of cold coffee and very bitter chocolate. It begins with a medium sweetness, this quickly turns into roasty, more sour than bitter, and finishes with a mellow, roasty (again, rubbery) sourness. Body is light, it has a rather thin but prickly carbonation, palate on the dry side. Maybe Iíll grow to like this sort of stuff when Iím old.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a one finger tan head. Aroma is of dark fruits and smoke. Taste is sweet at first then a bit of coffee and roasted malt. Low ABV kind of hurts this one. Didnít get much better when warmer.
