The flavour is malty with no personality. It has hints of coffee and licorice in the long finish, where the bitterness turns up. I would like it to have more body and soul. (Early rating, too short, I’m sorry).

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Aroma malty, flavor the same. Finish a little bit sweet. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, looks clear. The head is dense and beige, but a bit small. Roasted aroma with toffee-sweetness, prunes and a fruity hoppiness. Quite dry and bitter in the mouth, sweet as well, with burnt malt, dried fruits and toffee-notes. Long, coffee-bitter finish. Pleasant and quite easy-drinkable. (071222)

Moderate hoppy aroma. Large frothy light brown head. Good lacing. Mostly diminishing longevity. Clear amber body. Moderate sweet flavor, and the taste has also a litlle bit of dark chocolate. Medium palate and creamy texture.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle, bought at Norma. Black colour, medium-size very creamy and persistent beige-coloured head. Lovely aroma of malt, roasted malt and caramel. Full-bodied, lots of flavours playing on the palate: malt, roasted malt, caramel, chcoolate, toffee... Slightly hoppy. Very pleasant mouthfeel/palate. Well-balanced, neither too sweet nor too dry - just perfect - briliant!

Bottle. High fluffy but lasting light brown head. Hazy dark red body. Cocoa dominated aroma with a bit of bisquits as well plus a very nice roasted malt. Flavor also of nice cocoa, pretty sweet but not too much of a good thing. Low carbonation. Long sweet aftertaste.
