Sample from bottle. Black and opague. Cocoa and chocolate in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with cacao and chocolate milk. Thinnish. Tasty, yet onedimensional.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 Bottle @ RBESG pre-event at De drie dorstige herten, Utrecht. Opaque pitch black color, small beige head. Aroma of the gruesome "hopjesvla". I hate it. Tastes like it as well with sone sweetness and vanillla. Yuk yuk yuk. Not my thing at all!

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!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl. bottle. Pours black with a dense beige head. Aroma definitely of chocolate. And hops. But mostly chocolate. Great taste of chocolate and roasted malts. Sweet, but not as sweet as eg. Youngs Double Chocolate Stout. Much better than I expected. I’ll have this one again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Spirits Crossroads. Poured a thinner density pitch black with an average size foamy beige head that leaves some serious gobs of lace. Back in the day T.G.I. Friday’s made these liquid alcoholic drinks by the half gallon that you blend, this is their Mudslide to a mother fuckin T. Light body with super soft to almost not there carbonation. Flavor is TGI Fridays Mudslide. Overall this is rather sweet with a cheaper cocoa flavor along with marshmellow, vanilla and cream. Not bad but I’ve had better.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 Pours black with a minimal light tan head. Aroma is definitely chocolate - maybe a little carob too. Taste is chocolate all day long with, maybe, a little molasses. Very smooth with a chocolatey malt finish.
