Archives: 50cl bottle. Seasonal brew be A. Le Coq. Was rather drinkable baltic porter, with loads of caramel and some chocolate notes. I actually purchased several 4-packs. Hope they will do that again. Was a good seasonal brew. halapablo (144) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 18, 2012

50cl bottle. Pours black with a creamy brown head. Nose & taste is dark roasted malts, coffee & heavy sweet milky chocolate. Smooth! One dimensional, chocolate all over, but drinkable! FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2008

Practically black, healthy tan head. Sweet and rich roasted malt aroma, definitely in the A le Coq style. Hardly got much chocolate from it. Taste also sweet, smooth, and rich roasted malt. A little sickly, no punch. I’ve also had one in the past which was a bit more chocolatey.
Bottle. Almost black colour with a nice brown head. Rich aroma and taste of roasted malts and chocolate. Not too sweet, nice. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2007
Dark brown leaning towards black. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, plums and alcohol. I find the same in the flavour, that is sweetish and has notes of milk chocolate. The alcohol is to dominating, and makes this a mediocre experience for me. NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 20, 2006
Courtesy of Madsberg. The body of this beer is a red tinted black and the head is quite attractive, it is a thumb thick and mostly lasting with a frothy, yet creamy mocha colored cappucino-like appearance.
Aroma is laden with vanilla, chocolate, molasses, mild licorice and dried dark fruits. It’s mildly stale smelling at first, but that fades leaving a pretty solid aroma.
The first sip is very cocoa/chocolate and vanilla accented. There are mild coffee notes and so it tastes a lot like a flavored coffee. The mouthfeel is nice though a touch thin in the finish. I could see this getting too sweet for some, but to me it is quite tasty and quite enjoyable. A very nice winter treat. There is a mild alcohol burn in the finish along with more intense vanilla/cocoa notes. I like! gunnfryd (14872) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2006

Bottled. Dark reddish brown with a beige head. Chocolate and mocha dominates the aroma and flavor, and there’s some alcohol as well. Full-bodied with a long chocolate finish. Really lovely. (060929)
