3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,33l bottle from Beer Bier. Clear, dark reddish amber color with medium off-white head. Interesting, intensive, dry odor with dark chocolate, milk caramel, raisins, some coffee, liqueur and a little whisky. If you wait a couple minutes, the odor and the aroma will be much intensive and delicious. A little bitter aroma with caramel, chocolate, raisins, a little coffee and liqueur. It has an interesting cookie feeling, but the little bitterness make it balanced. Medium bitter-sweet taste. MEdium body with creamy texture and sofr carbonation. Unique, delicious finish with dark chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Very delicious beer with a big amount of flavours and aromas.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark copper with a large, fading head.
Skunky aroma at first, with only traces of chocolate noticeable. Some faint nutty and roasty malt is present
Flavours have similar problems, although a bit more chocolate presence helps, along with some nutty malt. However thereís an overriding grainy note throughout and very little supporting malt. Also some industrial booze notes show up in the finish.
Body feels watery.

Pours a chestnut/ruby color with a medium lt tan head. Aroma is light and nutty with mild chocolate...a bit like tootsie rolls. Flavor is very much like tootsie rolls with a bit of earthy hops and mild nutty/lightly roasted malt. Mouthfeel is light/medium and the finish lingers with roast and chocolate tootsie roll.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark ambeer colour with medium head, looks ok. Nice body and carbonation. Aroma is really milk chocolate with some vanilla notes. Taste is mostly malty, sweet, and at the end itís possible to notice the chocolate presence, but not the same as in Aroma. Good beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Malts and chocolate in aroma. The flavor is milk chocolate mixed with fruit, raspberry possibly. Not much in the way of an old ale in flavor or appearance, this was a decent mix of chocolate and fruit, although not exceptional in body.
