3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown bottle, 330ml, pours brown with a mocha tan head subsiding slowly. Scent is super spicy/peppery, roasted coffee beans? Taste is dense roasted beans, maybe both coffee and chocolate. Cayenne pepper I think. Mouthfeel is medium dense and light caramel, very light sticky. Good beer, not my favorite flavor profile though.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 33cl a dark beer with low head and carbonation. Nose is intense on dark coffee, coffee beans, licorice and dark chocolate. Aroma is again very intense on roasted malt, dark coffee, dark chocolate, medium creamy, excellent chocolate bouquet especially at the finish where the dark chocolate notes remains properly and long as for a 80% dark chocolate itself. Notes of beans as there, touch of licorice wood and vanilla, espresso. Very nice one, easily drinkable.
