SilverfoX (185) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
incredibly gassy bottle, powdered chocolate aroma, massive head that thankfully vanishes so you can see a (nutty) black body that tastes sweet and rich, fizzy and watery though still enjoyable.

Cantabrian (775) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 4, 2014
Bottle. Too cold to start, witjh some chocolate, old wood shavings, butter and hazelnuts on the aroma and flavour. When warmer it did not improve much. Watery, not a mild out of this world.

mighty_meadow (152) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - FEB 18, 2014
At first I served this a bit too cold which had a negative impact on the beer. As it warmed slightly the beer improved considerably and started to give off all sorts of flavours, nuts, dark fruits, raisins, toffee all tickled the tastebuds while a slight hoppiness waited in the wings to give a subtle, bitter finish. All in all a nice beer if you do as it says on the label, serve cool NOT chilled.

jjsint (624) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle from Tesco. Colour is black with reasonable full grey-tan head. Aroma is of nuts of course, with some smoke and liquorice notes. A bit metallic. Taste is exquisitely complex, sweet mostly but slightly bitter.

jmgreenuk (4002) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle from Tesco’s. Poured a cloudy murky dark brown with a thin bubbly tan head. The aroma is weak roasted malt. The flavour is medium bitter, nutty and with roasted malt. The bitterness lingers for a while in the finish for a very refreshing beer.
