Bottle. A clear, chestnut colored beer with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is quite roasted and nutty, with some chocolate and coffee. It’s quite dry on the palate, with a tad much carbonation. Full to medium body. Nuts, caramel, roasted malts and coffee in the flavor. A decent bitterness too. Chocolate, caramel, nuts and coffee in the end. Quite nice this one. 150328

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Close to black body with a large, creamy, tan and very long-lived head that stays finger-thick (a very thin finger, though). Good lacing. The aroma is pretty decent, but not strong. It’s lightly roasted with notes of caramel, dark dried fruits, dust and chocolate in the back. The flavour is stronger, and follows the aroma. In addition there are notes of coffee in the background together with the chocolate. The 6.66% of alcohol is quite evident, and could have been better integrated. The taste is moderate sweet and moderate bitter. It’s mid-bodied and dry with a lively carbonation. A decent one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not nearly as good as the lighter colored version. This also had a very foamy, active head, but it settled down soon to a nice light thin cover, some lace, and a dark brown color. Aroma is yeast and malt. Flavor is similar to nose, dry, and a bit gamey. Body is decent. Technically good, but esthetically not so much.
