UPDATED: APR 29, 2016 Intensywny aromat mlecznej czekolady, trochę pralinek i wanilii. Piana obfita, bardzo ładnie oblepia szkło. W smaku nie jest bardzo słodkie, oprócz czekolady wyczuwalna jest też kawa i nugat, brakuje trochę paloności, fajny gorzko-czekoladowy finisz. No i bardzo ładna etykieta!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle at the Swan and Three Cygnets, Durham. Dark red with a fine off-white head. Curious synthetic aroma of strawberry mixed in with sweet caramel (I liked this, but I suspect this will be a point of contention). Flavours of cinder toffee, sweet caramel, and slightly burnt coffee vie for dominance, with an overall sticky mouthfeel of sweetness.

It pours a deep black colour with a frothy creamy beige head. The aroma is sweet chocolate (cocoa powder) and a hint of vanilla. A smooth sweet chocolate flavour, slightly creamy and a very mild sweet bitter finish. This is a bit too reliant on sugar and cocoa powder.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours dark brown to black with a nice tan head and some lacing. The aroma is cocoa and some dark fruit. The taste is cocoa and hints of fruit. I liked this. There was something about the taste that seemed off though. I wanted to like this more.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from a 550mL bottle. It poured a deep, clear, reddish-brown with a thick frothy beige head and streaky lacing. Sweet chocolate and roasted malt aroma with a matching flavor profile. Smooth and creamy. This would be one excellent dessert stout.

12oz bottle shared by John. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is cocoa powder! Reminds me of making hot cocoa as a kid. With marshmallows too. Flavor is about the same, nice chocolate that’s not too sweet, not too bitter. Good mouthfeel too.
