3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Into a glass pours a dark ruby red beer . The smell is strong caramelly, but also a lot of chocolate comes through. Starts with lots of coffee and toffee aromas. Toffee and caramel in the middle part. The finish shows delicately hoppy, with a slight caramel flavor and a subtle bitterness, also again lots of chocolate aromas

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0,5ltr: Another brew with my favorite one-eyed brewery cat on it. The dark brown coloured chocolate version. I like this one, not so extreme of taste like other chocolate beers. Its got the sweet bitternesh due the fine chocolate they used.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper with a darker tan head leaving lacing.
Aroma: chocolate, nuts, grass, bitter (as in the beer style).
Taste: lots of milk chocolate, cacao, fruit, quite sweet, low bitterness.
Medium-bodied and smooth.
Feels more like a blend of ale and chocolate than a successful chocolate ale. But not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber, medium to dark red colored beer with a big, thick vast white head. Don’t smell much chocolate. At first only light hints of chocolate in the taste, but when I left it for awhile a little more chocolate appears. Nice carbo and medium body. Nothing wrong with this beer, pretty nice.
