3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
aroma: predominantly roast, coffee. soe milk chocolate, cocoa, alcohol.
black, hazy, minimal head, off-white foam, not so good retention. very light sweetness, lightly bitter. overly full body, thick feel (would enjoy creamy more), flat, astringent, alcoholic.
overall a heavy beer that isn’t balanced that well. the roastiness is put off balance by thickness, lots of alcohol feel (might be higher alcohols).

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours almost black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate with a strong floral hops presence. Has chocolate and coffee notes, along with some lactose for the flavor. Also more roasted malt, and possibly licorice. Not nearly as sweet as I expected. Medium to full-bodied. Decent.

Dark brown color, big creamy brown head that refused to disappear. Very strong cocoa aroma, roastiness, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is similar, but much more milky and fruity, some hops also. Long cocoa finish. Sweet on the lips, slightly sticky, silky, creamy texture, medium to full body, soft carbonation. Awesome, awesome stuff.

Bottle 0.33l from Beer Club Shop in Rijeka, Cro. Thick dark liquid with big tan head. Foam is very tasty, aroma of chocolate, toffee and something that reminds me of sea smell. Sounds strange but I like it. Body is full, carbonation medium. Rich in taste, cocoa, caramel, roast taste. Long finish. Feels like something with more than 7% of alcohol. Very nice.

Pours a black color, topped with decently sized and slowly settling beige head. Nice and easy t pick up aroma of some milk chocolate wit some coffee notes in the back. Also some mild hoppy notes, grassy in a way. A hint of bourbon leaks through as well. Mild sweetness upfront, chocolate and coffee presence in the body, slightly burned coffee feel, but just in the first few sips. Quite nice and solid hoppy bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is very nicely hidden, with just a hint of it in the back. Slight soury grains feel also present. Medium full body. Very nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: extreme bitter/burned aroma; I’m a little afraid; Appearance: pitch black with thick, tan head that dissipates slowly; some lacing; Taste: also very bitter and burned; a bit of sweetness but overall not balanced; Palate: heavy with long, burned finish; Overall: not sure if it’s the style or this beer, but definitely not pleasant; can appreciate that it’s decent quality but would not buy again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hatalmas, gyönyörű, tömör barna hab, fekete szín. Édeskés, kávés, pörkölt malátás illatvilág, a komlók közbeszólásával. Először a laktóztól eredő édesség érezhető, párhuzamosan a komló gyümölcsös aromájával, majd a komló és a pörkölt maláta keserűje együtt bukkannak elő, fokozatosan erősödve. Aztán a korty száraz kakaóporossággal cseng le, de az alkohol is kiköszön mögüle. Utóíze szárazon kesernyés, némi kakaóssággal és pörkölt malátás utánérzéssel. Testes, finom, jól összerakott sör.

Bottle from Tebay services on the M6. Sweet, almost floral aroma. Opaque with very little head. The taste belies the aroma - the residual hoppiness eventually gives way to some chocolatey sweetness: not unpleasant, just a surprise!
