2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by Joes @ weekly tasting. Opaque pitch black color, very small tan head. Aroma has an incredible amount of chocolate, vanilla and also some "hopjesvla". Taste is about the same: an incredible amount of chocolate, vanilla and some hopjesvla. A bit watery texture, but a very strong flavor. Not my favorite though.

Bottle @ joes thx to joes. Black colour with a minimal sized, light brown head. Smells creme brulee, brown sugar, vanilla, sweet, lots of chocolate, ’bonbon’.. Fucking lovely smell. Tastes sweet, brown sugar, creme brulee, roasty, chocolate, ’bonbon’. If this beer had 10% abv it would be amazing. Now it’s a bit too watery for me. Still a nice taste and smell though.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Sosialen, july 26th 2013. Black body, fluffy light brown head. Aroma is heavy on the chocolate, with licorice, marzipan, nuts. Taste is lighter in chocolate, with sweet caramel and dusty hops, pretty sweet. This is a dessert in itself. light roasted finish with, you guessed it, more chocolate.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very dark, almost black beer with big beige head. Very intensive aroma of dark chocolate and sherry notes. Fantastic! Taste is worse, only sherry without my favourite roasted malts. On the finish appears ashy notes. Too sweet, Too watery, not enough roasted. Best sides of the beer is aroma and appearance , rest is rather poor.

Bottle at Bishops Arms, Sundbyberg.
Deep brown with a medium tan head. A lot of chocolate in the aroma, also some cocoa and roasted malt. Similar taste but not as much chocolate. Rather thin mouthfeel. Not balanced but interesting.
