Currently drinking a bottle from Beers of Europe. Aroma is full of rich, dark, roasted malts with sweet chocolate. Appears as a black vessel with a short lived pillowy tan head on top. Tastes of sweet chocolate, rich roasted flavours, caramel malts and a herbal hop finish which adds to the solid dark chocolate bitterness. Silky smooth on the tongue, not too heavy but not too light either, very slight oily texture with a soft tingly carbonation. No doubt at all that this is a very tasty drop, would happily drink this again, and again, and again, and again....
