Tadım başta malt ağırlıklı, ardından hafif çikolata tınıları ve bitiriş ise dil ve damakta kahve.. Hafif taze ceviz,fındık gibi kavrulmamış tat hisleri de araya karışıyor..
Çikolata ya da meyveli bir tatlı ile yenebilecek şekilde kalıcı kahve aroması uzun süre damakta hissediliyor..

Very coffee. Pours a deep black with a tan head. Smells like mocha and a bit of hops. Taste is coffee all around, a bit overpowering, added by the hops in the finish. Bitter aftertaste. Had in the bottle.

Pours a finger of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is lots of chocolate and roasted malt. Wonderful.
The taste has moderate chocolate sweetness, off-set by a moderate bitterness that builds through the profile. Finishes with a touch of milk.
The texture is softer and medium bodied.

A colablack beer with a weak and beige head. The nose has coffee, balancd roastiness, hint of liquirice, and fruits. Taste has coffee, herbs, some fruits, nice bitterness. Almost medium bodied, low carbonation. More strenght for the body would be needed, now too light. Good beer but nothing more.

Dark, almost black pour with foamy cream colored head. Smells like black coffee with a hint of chocolate undertone. Tastes nutty with hint of chocolate and finishes with a slight bitterness of black coffee. Not unpleasant, but more coffee than chocolate flavor and definitely not as mellow-sweet as other chocolate beers out there.

Bottle 12 fl.oz from erzbierschof.ch. Black beer with aromas of mocha, roasted malt, cacao powder, licorice and sappy note. The mouth is silky, firm and roasted, coffee and bitter chocolate. Bitterness of burnt and hops are melted. Pleasant and dry, we are not far from a Stout there.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz brown bottle from Whole Foods into Spieglau glass. It poured an opaque dark brown colour with long-lasting beige foam, nice lace. Low but pleasant aromas: brown bread, toast, woodsy Fuggle-ish English hop traits. Flavour was fuller: malty, caramelly, bready and toasty again, strong berry fruitiness and red wine tannic notes. Tart with a very dry finish. Medium body and carbonation, balance brown ale aftertaste. I see they formerly used Centennial aroma hops, which would’ve given it a more American profile. As is, this was an extremely authentic London Porter, reminicent of Fullers or Meantime. Good stuff.
