Predominantemente huele a chocolate. En la boca hay más café, más tostado, amargor torrefacto, muy densa, casi de tomar con cuchara, de retrogusto muy duradero, chocolate puro y café.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle, poured into a snifter at home. ABV 6.4%
Pours an almost totally black beer, with a good sized beige head, with good density and retention. Medium thick lacing on the glass.
Intense aroma of black olives pit, followed by roasted malts, chocolate, light vanilla.
Taste of olive pit at first that doesn’t linger for long, instead gets replaced almost immediately by a roasted malts flavour, along with lots of coffee and its accompanied bitterness. Quite good.
Body is a bit thin, at least for me, but the carbonation is okay.
Overall very enjoyable, especially after it warmed up a little.
