Very dark brown pour, dark tan head. Just lovely looking. Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts, coffee tones. Creamy mouth feel with a nice blend of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Very, very nice. popway (206) - California, USA - APR 23, 2016
A fine offering from Drakes Bought at the brewery
Bottled 3/23. It is about a month old ...poured in a snifter
Tan head over black body greets me
Aroma is coffee, mouthfeel is full bodied, creamy akin to a Three Musketeers
bar. Balanced roasted malts meet coffee linger on the palate.
A good experience. Nothing lacking or compromised. ffbot (418) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 4, 2016
Pour is a deep still black, tiny little head with tiny little lacing. Smell is nutty, chocolate, black coffee. Taste follows. Bitter coffee and sweet dark chocolate battle it out with chocolate eventually winning and leaving a sweetened palate Bosskie (882) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2016
Pitch black, beautiful brownish head, bubbly.
Smell is tiramisu - sweet coffee with cinnamon, caramel, biscuit, subtle and warm bitterness. Liquorice and chocolate.
Taste is watery bitter, with subtle ash and nice fizz. Chocolate sticky oiliness with a bitter chewy finish. Leaves a fresh herby feel on the tongue. Beautiful balance - delicious! DSG (14685) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 14, 2016
