3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap @Mr Foleys, Leeds.
Pours totally black, with a nice brownish head.
Aroma is faint, but having a pleasant sweet chocolate note.
Taste has lots of vanilla&chocolate, not so much of roasted tones and a bit tart in the end.
Aftertaste is nice, solid chocolate tones with a proper bitterness.
Proves its name.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Low fluffy lasting light brown head. Very dark red brown body. Powerful choccolate aroma, nothing else. That is, however, sufficient for me. Sweet and relatively dry and solid roasted malt choccolate flavor with some bitterness, probably from the choccolate, as it does not seem to originate from the hops. High carbonation, long dry finish.. Very tasty for such a beer with a relatively low alcohol percentage.
