Bottled. Poured into snifter. This is an amazing stout. Big flavors of dark chocolate on the front, back, and everywhere in between. Like eating a savory dark chocolate bar. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Marrone scura, praticamente nera, schiuma nocciola di buona persistenza. Abbastanza acida, aroma di caffè e cacao, leggero aroma di frutti rossi, zucchero. Al palato sempre acida, prevale il caffè tostato sul cacao amaro, con una bella coda amaricante tostata. Corpo medio leggero, poco carbonata, oleosa.

Very dark pour, thin tan head. Aroma of, well, chocolate along with some indistinguishable roasted something. Bittersweet chocolate on the nose and palate. Seemed a bit thin, not very sweet, with a strong chocolate profile. Definitely got the bittersweet (not milk) chocolate angle, but was not as rich or roasty or really anything to make me excited.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of chocolate with hint of espresso. Pours black with tan head. Taste is lightly sweet at first with a medium bitter finish. Full bodied with thick texture. An amazing chocolate and beer combination.

Big bottle into fancy stout glass. Black w good tan head. Aroma of chocolate with hints of vanilla and oak. Robust taste - distinctive bitter chocolate. Smooth almost creamy but w some rougher bitterness coming through. Good solid stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A rich and beautiful light brown persistent foam fills the top of this very fragrant stout. The fragrance is characterized by good dark chocolate (Belgian?). The dark chocolate flavor is pronounced in this stout, it is slightly sweet and very little bitter. The taste is replaced by a short-term lightly hopped taste and it also contains some hints of coffee. The stout is not as sweet as I expected. The finish is marked by good quality chocolate mixed with a moderate amount of coffee.

650ml bottle into tumbler. Totally totally black beer with foamy tan head. Cinnamon chocolate nose, some cloves, some liquorice. Surprisingly light and fizzy in the mouth. Finish is milk chocolate and cocoa. Lingering finish becomes quite bitter. Great beer but I didn’t expect it to be so quaffable. So...a 6.3% Sweet Stout that is easy drinking and not very sweet, alright!
