Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pours clear and dark brown with a small, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The aroma is a delight - milk chocolate and vanilla with undercurrents of hazelnuts, cola nuts and sassafras root. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor is very roasty and bitter, but also features a fantastic marriage of simmered chocolate milk and dark, luxuriant chocolate crème. Trends a little too bitter and carbonic for my taste, but damn this lives up to the billing! mariuspoenari (2692) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
Bottle shared with friends at a weekend tasting. Thick dark brown pour. Aroma dominated by milk chocolate, with notes of vanilla, oak, bourbon. The taste follows the same notes, very heavy on the chocolate. Excellent beer. allmyvinyl (10618) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle at Craigs. Pours deep dark brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of rich chocolate, vanilla, biscuit. Taste is cocoa, sweet sugar. Chocolate on the finish. Full of chocolate. McNeillR (2315) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2015
Middling dark brown, murky enough and a decent white ringed head. Nose is rich wholewheat and milky white and dark choc bitter. Initial taste is a lean bourbon biscuit and rich comforting choc. Bit too sweet but does the job and balances out on the finish. Soft carbonation and a polished mouthfeel.BenH (3439) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2015
