Cracking beer. Sumptuous mouthfeel. Delicious. One of my fave NZ Porter/Stouts VamboladeTolly (2192) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 24, 2018
Bottle. Pours deep dark brown with brown head. Aroma: alcohol, acetone, some chocolate. Taste: sweet, milk chocolate, watery, weak vanilla. Medium body. mrjez (767) - Osaka, JAPAN - JAN 31, 2018
Bottle from Slowbeer. Pours near black, highlights, can’t form a head. Toasted coconut and sweet cacao aroma, vanilla, a hint of booze. Lovely flavour of rich roasted malts, coconut, lightly burnt touch, toffee, bitter cacao nibs, vanilla. Medium body, gentle fizz, smooth creamy backhalf, dry finish. Not too taxing for a 500ml, tonnes of flavour to keep me interested. Excellent. mariuspoenari (3211) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2017

500ml bottle. Pours a jet black with a reddish tinge. Aroma: coconut, malt, cocoa, vanilla, cream notes. Taste: coconut, cocoa, vanilla, roasted malt, toasted bread. Medium to full bodied. Moderate sweetness. Finishes fairly cleanly. Good but not as great as I expected it to be.
