10/12/13 $6on tap (nitro) at silk city before heading to Sazon. Color was dark brown with nose of dark almost burnt chocolate and espresso. Taste is dark chocolate with hints of dark roasted coffee in the finish. Mouthfeel is a little watery. All in all, a very very nice chocolate stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I wish it had the alcohol warmth to backup the full bodied malty strong chocolate taste. But there's not much to complain about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

W zapachu deserowa czekolada, kakao, mocna kawa, paloność. Wygląd to barwa czarnej kawy, nieprzejrzyste, z beżową pianą. W smaku kawa, czekolada, ciemny chleb, gdzieś w tle lekka miętowość, nieco świeżości, pojawia się też bitterowa goryczka. Dość pijalne, ciało średnie. Reasumując całkiem niezły, czekoladowo-kawowy stout

Nice chocolate stout. Very good taste, just a little pale. Hard to find. Not too pricey.
