mR_fr0g (5248) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle at home split with Sarah. Dark mahogany brown coloured pour with reddy hues and a lasting light tan head. Aroma is sweet woody caramel, vanilla, with dark choc and woody roast with a hint of smoke. Flavour is composed of dark malts, robust roast and dark choc bitterness, little chalky mineral, charcoal. Palate is medium bodies, with spritzy carbonation, chalky water profile. Good beer but lacks a bit of depth.

Pistacho (47) - SPAIN - MAY 3, 2015
On tap at Irreale. Chocolate and coffee aroma. Dark chocolate flavor with peppery notes, nice tobacco background. When warmed, it has some new aroma notes, nutty hints and tobacco. Perhaps a little bit high acidity from the roasted malts. Good beer.

It’s robust. Solid taste of chocolate and roast coffee in the malt. A little bitterness in the hops but not too much. Medium bodied and quite drinkable. A little smokey.

radio_nowhere (1112) - Maryland, USA - APR 17, 2015
Draft sample at the Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest a week ago, opaque dark brown color with light tan head. Aroma notes of roasted malt, dark coffee, chocolate and some smoke. Taste adds cocoa, espresso, ash and some herbal hops. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, dry, soft with roast finish. Not many dark styles here so this is very tasty and appreciated.
