Christos (5440) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 11, 2016
(De Prael Metropolitan Cacao Beer) Bottle 330 ml from a trade with Borrensteijn, thanks Rob! Served into a big tulip, ABV 7.4% Deep brown colour on the body, huge and rising thick, beige head, with good retention, mostly because of its size. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate, caramel, sour notes that hint to a light infection. Taste has also some sour notes, not exactly infected though, more like oxidized, caramel, grains, still some cocoa, but lighter than the aroma. Medium thin body, high carbonation. Okay beer.

Moebbels (783) - FINLAND - AUG 23, 2013
This pours a very dark brown color with a solid even layer of beige foam. Nose has a deep dark chokolate aroma accompanied by some raisin and caramel. Taste is sweet at first but is quickly followed by a deep lasting bitterness. Carbonation is medium but feels very soft due to the small bubbles. Otherwise palate is quite rich and creamy. Overall this is one of the better chokolate beers Ive tasted, could be a bit less bitter though.
