theatmosphere (50) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2012
Recently launched, brilliantly full body and just the right bitterness of rich dark chocolate. Impressive, but not something I could drink too often.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 23, 2013
Medium beige head doesn’t last. Nearly opaque black body goes deep dark brown at edges. Roasty dusty chocolate aroma with toast notes. Dry-sweet roasty chocolatey earth taste with toast and toffee notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry roasty chocolatey honey aftertaste with earthy rye crisp bread notes. Lovely. Highly drinkable, full of flavour, and complex. Very harmonic, too. (0.5l bottle, from House of Trembling Madness, York.)

Pours a dark chocolate brown with soem ruby hints in the brightest light. Fizzy head dissipates quickly. Light roasted nose, with just a hint of chocolate. Nice roasted malt flavor, with hints of chocolate and toast. Medium mouthfeel. Holds flavor as it warms. A nice solid stout.
