4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted 2010-03-29. Bottle. Pours clear, dark, amber with off-white head. Cocoa dominates the aroma. It reminds me of Youngs double chocolate stout, but the comparison stops at the aroma, for the taste shows, that this is primarily an old ale. Mildly acidic, slightly malty. Very balanced and very subtle in all aspects. Lotsa ppl find it artificial, but I like it - very much indeed. The cocoa goes very well with the old ale characteristics IMO.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (BZ, BB 01/2011)
Dark ruby clear color, steady creamy beige head, lace. Strong, mostly artificial chocolate aroma and cocoa powder. Medium-bodied, a crisp carbonation. Flavor is dominated by artifical chocolate, but as it is not overly sweet, itís more or less ok. Aftertaste has hints of brandy, hops and harsh malts. Ok.

Bottle. Pours a clear nutbrown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet chocolate. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is sweet and overall a little too sweet.

Earlier Rating: 3/23/2009 Total Score: 2.6
Slightly hazy copper with a lasting off-white head. Sweet chocolate and cocoa aroma. To my taste, lacking in beer aroma. Sweetish and malty beer with a lot of cocoa flavour. I recognize itís well made, but not to my taste.

330ml bottle - shared by Mark&Sarah - thanks!
Very gentle chocolate. Slightly metallic hops compared with normal tom. Fuller palate but that may just be because of more sugars.
