Draft at source. Nitro. Moderate coffee and chocolate aroma that is very inviting. Black with a very faint reddish highlight. Medium sized tan head. Taste is very chocolate forward with a creamy mouthfeel. Not overly bitter or roasty, very creamy and sweet. Enjoyable. Holmen2 (3850) - NORWAY - JAN 30, 2016
Backlog. Bottle at Cardinal 24.10.14. Black. Pale brown head quickly diminishing to almost nothing. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted barley. Similar taste. Fine, but short, aftertaste. Thin and watery mouthfeel. High drinkability, though. JulienHuxley (5877) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2016

650ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours opaque dark brown with a thin tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, tar, leather. Taste is more dark chocolate and leather, liquorice. Slightly thin maybe but there’s a good richness for the strength. AshtonMcCobb (6772) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 2, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines.
Appearance - opaque black with a decent fawn head.
Nose - creamy milk chocolate plus a burnt toffee note.
Taste - the burnt toffee dominates the chocolate.
Palate - medium bodied with a creamy yet dry burnt middle section which follows
Overall - could be a dry stout. Or could also be a porter of sorts. Very rich and tasty. Big for the ABV.
