Pours out of the bottle in a deep black colour with steady low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and torf. Taste of intense malt, leaves, woods, bread, spices and coriander. Very light bitter hoppy finish. Nice beer and I enjoyed it a lot.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bb Mar 2015. Pours a ark brown/black with a tan head which dissipates quickly. Looks good. Aroma is milk chocolate, vanilla, bread. Medium body, medium carbonation - quite a bit of fizz. Milk chic again, with bitter coffee, a touch of dark fruits, a hint of citrus, a little coca-cola and a bitter, slightly metallic, finish. Overall, not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Near-black pint with a beige, bubbly head. Toasty malt in the aroma with a hint of chocolate. Taste is a smooth, chocolate-malt flavour but with a sweet, zesty edge. The finish is interesting with the toated malt prominent but a spicy hint in there too. Surprisingly light and very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black with a finger of tan head. Low aroma of roasted malt, some chocolate (mostly milk) hints of citrus peel and whiff of sweet coffee. Good above average body but not a meal, slightly thinned by the higher than needed carbonation. Bold backbone of complex dark and roasted malt, lightened wisps of citrus (candy peel) and slight berry flavours. All leading to milk chocolate, and a little burnt chocolate, rounded off with a dry tannin like bitterness and mild coffee highlights.
