Bottle. Pours a black beer, no light shining trough with a smaller off white head on top. Aroma of super dark chocolate, rich malts and sweet molasses. Flavor is bittersweet, loads of chocolate, dark caramel and hints of roast. Slight coffee in the aftertaste alongside the presence of the chocolate. Well balanced and softly carbonated. Nice one.

Bottle from Werckmeister, many thanks! Black color with mid-sized tan head. Dark chocolate aroma with light coffee, roast and liquorice. Lightly leathery taste with sweet, dark chocolate, liquorice, vanilla. Quite easy to drink, but very nice.

Dec. ’15. A 0.33 l bottle, kindly shared by Marko, thanks a lot! It poured almost completely black body with medium sized head. Coffee aroma and light note of dark fruits. Pleasant and intense, although pretty simple. Lightly bitter roasted flavor (coffee and rye bread) was balanced with more elegant cocoa, chocolate and licorice note. I didn’t get any milky notes, probably it only smoothed it on palate. Which is really oily smooth. Medium to full in body with long cocoa, chocolate and coffee finish. Really fine, although chocolate was quite weak as these special choco-stouts can be. caesar (7465) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2016
