Cask, 5.5%. Weak coffee aroma. Black colour, almost no head, but frothy. The flavour has some chocolate, mild, not dark or really bitter. Hint of Nesquick or O’boy. Slightly sweet, but with a hint of alcohol in the finish. Gary (1999) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 12, 2011

Bottled 500ml (BB 07/2011)oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2011
Deep brown color, not much head. Milky, cocoa-chocolate aroma. Light to medium bodied. Flavor has chocolate, milk stoutish, nuts, lots of black coffee. Somewhat harsh, like when coffee beans have been used? Decent, but too milky and harsh for me.
Bottled. Very close to black colour, small off-white head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, mild toasted and roasted malts. Flavour is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee beans, and some mild bitterness. A bit ashy in the finish.

500ml bottle from The Bottle Shop, Canterbury. Black body lasting dark beige head. Malty dark choc aroma. Full in the mouth. Some grainy maltiness on the swallow. Very decent choc flavour. Fullness is good. I rather liked it to be honest. Good flavours, good condition. Wow. Drank it real quick as it was just so drinkable. Doesn’t taste of 5.5% ABV either.

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours a dark brown with an orange hue and a rough beige head. Hard roasted malt in the nose with some dried fruit. Medium body, burned malty accents - almost tar-like - with a distinct and almost astringent malt bitterness. 251210 NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2010

Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of roast malt and chocolate, with some diacetyl and a hint of fruit. Sweet fruit and chocolate flavour with a touch of diacetyl and a roasted finish dutchbeerpages (2439) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2010
Amazing palate, very smooth. Didn’t smell too good but the taste and evolution made up for it. I think I had this from a bottle at the Borefts Beer Festival 2010
