Bottle. Pours black with thin tan head. Aroma is Sweet and Chocolate and i get cake out of it as well. Taste is sweet chocolate with smoky hints. Vanilla chocolate finish. It’s pretty good but didn’t blow me a way. Would love to try one of these with some coconut added.

Bottle. Roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate, a bit of coffee, coconut and a bit of wood note as well. Pours very dark brown with a thin but retentive mocha brown head that also has good lacing. Starts with very sweet chocolate flavors as well as a bit of coconut. Finishes very smooth with roasted malt, slight coffee and a tiny bit of wood. Tastes like a chocolate cake for sure. Delicious.

Black body, brown head. Chocolate, mocca, dark fruits and tobacco in flavour. Sugary rum barrel sense. Flavour has sugars, ash, toasted vainilla, chocolate. Some Woody leather. Complex and great.

An Italian nose? Subtle dark cherry vibes (like a Brunello di Montalcino wine) and a whiff of espresso. Full, roasty mouth – like the best bits of draught Guinness amplified yet balance. Very smooth, very velvety.
