W O W. aroma of black fruits, peanuts, a little chocolate, but *WOW* is the rocky road element right on the front of the nose. that turkish delight, rose-water sweetness is super evident and lovely.

pours a dark brown - almost black, but not quite. reminiscent of coca-cola in terms of colour - and carbonation, come to think of it.

very very sweet, a little sour note towards the back end of the taste, but mostly a lot of sweetness from the malt. this beer is 8.4%, but it sure as shooting doesn’t feel like it. a little hop bitterness, but it’s definitely not the focus of this brew.

light - oily almost - palate, with a nice amount of carbonation, but it’s sure not a bad thing. the mouthfeel stops it from being a potentially overwhelming feeling drinker. really really nice, but definitely not an every-day, but something i’d take to a bottle share. if your go-to pale ale is a trusty pair of jeans, this is high fashion. 4.2.

Bottle @ Dangerous Bottleshare goodbye Aaron edition (or not?). Fairly clear brownish pour with a small head. Notes of sweet vanilla, perfume, artificial, toffee and some floral notes.

Klimaet (3061) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - APR 21, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a small offwhite head. Aromas of caramel, peanutbutter, malt, chocolate, light perfumey. Taste is sweet malty, caramel, perfumey, vanilla, dry cocoa, light acidity.

Dangerous bottleshare goodbye Aaron edition. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of candy, toffee, caramel, slight peanuts, chocolate and hazelnuts. Taste of toffee, hops, peanuts, candy and nuts. A Lil weird but still not too bad.

500ml bottle from the brewery, bottled 17 Mar 2017. Pours cola brown with ruby highlights and fizzy tan head that quickly recedes. Enticingly, it smells exactly like rocky road - big roasted peanut, milk chocolate, marshmallow and turkish delight. Masterfully balanced flavours - the rocky road aspects are all well balanced, but it’s also well balanced by a nice bitterness to avoid it becoming too cloying and reminding that this is still a beer. Medium bodied, fairly smooth. Very well imagined and executed specialty beer.

From bottle in a Belgian ale glass. Porter-like appearance though not as dark and the taste, with all its bells and whistles, could be mistaken for a porter base. I can say the aroma and taste nail the rocky road target as I was eating homemade rocky road chocolate alongside it. An excllent dessert beer.

This beer tastes exactly like what is says - Rocky Road. The aroma has the sweetness of marshmallows and the underlying ale has a chocolate and biscuit flavor. Really unique and an excellent job.

Bottle. Around an inch of beige head fizzes away to nothing in 20 seconds, leaving what looks like a glass of Coke. Aroma of peanuts, vanilla, chocolate (OK, "choc"), light roasted malt. Not as sweet as suggested by the aroma Toasted caramel and more convincing chocolate with singed nuts, strong bread. Mild spices, slightly metallic too. Dries out a bit with cleansing bitterness. It’s a bit harsh but welcome anyway. Better as it warms. Done OK, but not my sort of thing.

RafeAU (628) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Dark clear pour, virtually no head. Aroma of coffee, peanuts, cherry. Maybe even a bit of that turkish delight - rosewater. Syrupy imperial brown, or maybe belgian style - high carb. Very unique beer. Nice.

Niksko (627) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2015
Pours a dark brown with just a little off white head. Nose is milk chocolate, candy, marshmallow, peanuts, maybe a hint of cherry? Flavor is just as I remember it from GABS last year. On the attack you get a blast of caramel and sweet fruit flavors. Mid palate is peanut, milk chocolate, cherry, turkish delight. Then the finish is sweet and caramely, a little roasted burnt toast note, just a hint of hop bitterness. Sweet and decadent, but not cloying. Beautiful mix of flavors. Medium body, nothing remarkable about the mouthfeel, the magic here is in the flavors. Delicious!
