33 cl bottle.Zorongollo (37) - Barcelona, SPAIN - NOV 12, 2013
Pours pitch black color with a medium sized beige head. Aroma is chocolaty and a bit malty, some caramel, distant coffee and faint vanilla appear also. Creamy and chocolaty palate with caramel malts, toffee and vanilla notes, distant coffee and dark fruity notes on the flavor. Very drinkable and tasty, smooth and even a bit oily texture. Very good.

Pours black with a beige head. Smoke, chocolate, coffe. Nice and easy to drink. Very good. McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - APR 9, 2014
Tan head pitch black colour and a solid viscousity. Noses of coffe, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and dark toffee notes with hints of dark sugar syrup. Slick texture with a faint livelyness fading quickly into a full body with some well balanced sweetness and bitter roastyness. The finish is a short but harmonic coffee/chocolate bitterness fading into a lasting pleasant roastyness. themightyjag (644) - - APR 14, 2014
330ml bottle from The Beerhive.
Bubbly tan head disappears quickly, a little lacing. Very dark body. Nose full of coffee and roasted nuts, a little chocolate and vanilla. Flavour is creamy coffee, dark berries and dark chocolate on the finish. Mouthfeel is a little thin but still manages to have richness. Medium carbonation. This is a great beer, well balanced and ridiculously drinkable - no hint of the 6.9% in the taste. miquelcrush (2053) - Granollers, SPAIN - APR 22, 2014
