Bottle, bit of a gusher. Pours pitch black with a vast tanned head. Aroma of dark chocolate, hard roasted coffee and some licorice. Taste of roasted malts, lots of coffee, soft bitter. Medium body and a medium to heavy carbo. Too much carbo, which ruins the taste a bit.

Black color with huge brownish head, compact, persistent. The aroma is strong and very nice: roasted malt, cocoa, dark bread, hint of quality coffee. There is too much carbonation, that affects the mouthfeel; very good flavor of roasted malt and dark chocolate, with nice touch of coffee, and traces of liquorice; it also has a creamy feeling; correct bitterness; the residual sweetness is low.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, traded with Allen. Unfortunately a gusher, though I managed to save most of it. Aroma of coffee beans and chocolate pralines, very roasted, with tobacco and a pinch of vanilla. Full of flavour yet not really full in body. Light tart, very tobacco accented flavour, finishing with a medium bitterness and light chocolate and strong coffee notes. It grows on you, the equivalent of a morning espresso.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a dark beer with a huge quick diminishing bubbly choatic beige head. Hershey’s kisses, strong coffee, vanilla and mint showing up in the nose which is quite inviting. Medium to full bodied. Good bitterness balanced by a present roasted malt back. Lovely chocolatey components throughout. Not much lacework. Long minty finish which is mainly reminiscent of chocolate powder. A nice take on the style of a breakfast porter.
