3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours pale reddish black with a small frothy mocha head that leaves lots of spotty trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty with roasted malts, caramel, toasted oatmeal, nescafe, dark chocolate, sweet liquorice candy and moist soil. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel is soft, round, velvety, tiny roasted astringent and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, caramel, burnt cookies, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, milk chocolate and moist soil. Very elegant chocolaty milk stout. Very enjoyable...

Täyssynteettinen O’boy. Suklaata ja nevavettä. Liian laiha näihin makuihin. Ei oikein lähtenyt.

Bottle, ABV 6%. Pours a dark brown with a small, dark latte head. Aroma is chocolate, cacao, roast, light lactose. Taste is chocolate and cacao, light roast and lactose. Lactose grows stronger. Could be fuller to support the chocolatey sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Max. Black with a tan head. Great hot chocolate aroma. Sweet flavor with chocolate, milk, a sourish note. Medium-bodied. Aroma is better than the flavor, but still a good beer overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Feed in Chattanooga. Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, like syrup. Taste is too sweet, like pouring a bottle of chocolate syrup in your mouth. Very similar to Charleville’s Box of Chocolat. Too sweet so needs to be taken in moderation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Sogo in Denville. Not much aroma but flavor more than makes up for it. Authentic cocoa with milky smooth palate and subtle sweetness. Well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
