(Bottle) Very small dark tan head. Black body Strong aroma of dark bittersweet cocoa. Flavor is simply amazing! Lots of cocoa again. But, this time with a nice sweetness to it, no doubt from the lactose. Finishes off with a woodiness on the palate and aftertaste like I’m sucking on a dry tree branch. Could seriously sip this one all day long!

Pour is a thick black with a small tan head. Aroma is a nice bitter bakers chcocolate with some German chocolate cake. Flavor is a chocolate rum cake with a big chocolate bitterness. Big chocolate and a healthy dose of alcohol. Pretty flavorful beer. Like having a rich chocolate cake with a shot of dark rum.

BeerViking (4100) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Tap at the Draft House Hammersmith, black with a thin crema, aromas of chocolate and wooden barrels, rich and winey at first, then turning into alcoholic chocolate gateau. Sweet and cloying yet also dry-bitter and woody.

Mr_Abner (328) - Michigan, USA - FEB 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours black with a small, quickly dissipating, mocha head. Quite quickly, there is only a small ring of head around the glass. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, lactose. Not as sweet a taste as I would have expected; light to moderately bitter, actually, with a light sweetness underneath. Taste has lots of cocoa, chocolate, roasted malts, lactose. Medium+ bodied; smooth and oily; significantly below average carbonation. Finishes dry with roasted malts and cocoa lingering.

Das vielleicht beste Bier der Welt???? Keine Ahnung, aber auf jeden Fall sehr nah an der Perfektionsgrenze, wenn man denn auf abgefahrene und komplexe Extrembiere steht.UNFASSBAR LECKER....und sehr exotisch. Die Monterey Bar hats für mich gehabt. Vom Hahn und für 6,50 Euro die 0,3 Liter Tulpe. DANKE!!!!!!!�
