Bottle from Bottle Baron. Pours opaque black, dark brown head. Nose is rich, cocoa, fruits, gentle roast, creamy milky aromas. Taste follows: nice fruits, cocoa, gentle roast, rather sweet, milk shake-like frothiness, chocolate, light smoke. This is one of those beers you need to offer your better half when getting some nagging about your hobby. Excellent dessert beer.

Pours an opaque dark brown almost black like oil color with similar viscosity and khaki colored head. It does smell like chocolate cake, with just a little wood and sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied, yet smooth. Finishes like a piece of chocolate cake. Nicely done.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black or opaque brown beer with a thin brown head. Rich smell of dark chocolate and coffee.Flavour has those two as well, with some liquorice-y, earthy malt. There’s also some slightly hoppy backtaste there where the fruit kicks in. There’s quite a bit going on here. It’s rich and hearty and absolutely delicious and the slight fiss and tanginess of the fruit gives it a lovely little kick.

Dark as hell color, dark fruit, malt, licorice smell, they say a lot of CO2, mine was barely any CO2, very very thin head. The taste is is sweet, coca, raisiny taste, the swallow has a very, very high note of sweetness that lingers for a bit. A little spicy burn at the end as well, can’t figure out why but I love it. One of my favorite beers I have had all year.
They have his as a Foreign Stout, don’t be fooled this is as much as a Sweet Stout as Creme Bruele!
