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, it’s more or less ok. Aftertaste has hints of brandy, hops and harsh malts. Ok.
