2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled @ Drie Dorstige Herten. Dark brown color, short head. Aroma of chocolat, coconut, hint of roast. Very sweet coconut and chocolat, a bit artificial actually. Very sweet in taste, too sweet. First sips are ok, but I’m glad I dont have to drink a whole bottle by myself.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin tan head. The aroma is all chocolate with a little fudge and coconut. The flavour is very weak bitter with loads of chocolate and some vanilla on the palate. It’s a lovely warm and refreshing beer that’s not too sweet. The medium carbonation adds to the flavour. This beer should be 100 rated!

Bottle shared thanks to Jmgreenuk. Pours almost black with a tan head. Aroma is massive milk chocolate, with a touch of vanilla, fudge. Flavour is over moderate sweet and light moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, it’s a one trick pony, but very nice!
