Chocolishus. Powerfull taste of cocoa and a hint of coffe and liquorice. The experience takes you back to Wonkas faktory for adults.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 9, 2015
Opaque black color. The brown foamy head dies fast but creates strong legs. Visually a little dull. Aromas and flavors of cocoa, coffee, nuts, herbal spices. Extra rich toasty and strong bitter taste of chocolate and coffee. Overwhelming spices and too bitter for my taste, should be more sweet. Creamy heavy body with faint carbonation. Chalky with chunks of detritus. Very long bitter and strong invading mouth coating. An average beer with a treacherous smell. I find it hard to drink and tasted better local chocolate beers...Disappointed!

Nische (1920) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget, shared by a friend. Dark brown with off white head. Chocolate and coffee aroma with hints of roast, a little bit on the weak side though. Taste is lightly metallic but the chocolate, roasted malt and coffee notes overpowers the metallic. Light body and quite thin, if the name states double chocolate I want double chocolate, not weak chocolate with slight metallic notes.

Piwo barwy czarnej z rubinowymi refleksami. Zapach gorzkiej czekolady i stoutu. W smaku podobnie, gorzka czekolada i goryczka palonych słodów. Dobry stout.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2016 440ml can with widget - BB 15/2/2017 Roasted chocolate malt aroma. Black with creamy head. Not that much bitterness but a toasted smooth sweetness on the finish. A good dessert beer.
