3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled from bottle @ ChrisO after GBBF day 3. Dark brown to black color with a red glare coming through, average sized off-white to light brown head. Aroma is malts and loads and loads of chocolate. Taste malts, chocolate, quite a lot of vanilla, light to moderately bitter. Medium body and carbonation. A bit too much vanilla for me, but a pretty nice beer for sure.

Deep brown, light brown head. Flavors are all chocolate with a light hint of peanuts. Very oily and slick mouthfeel. A bit overdone on the chocolate but that’s ok by me!
