Bottled (thanks laiti!). Pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is banana, some mild toast, roast, liquorice and mild herbal notes. Flavour is banana, some liquorice, esters, fruits and yeast. Mild lactic notes as well. Strangely enough, the bananas, estery notes and yeast got my mind to a sahti... Accidental sahti stout? :) madmitch76 (24806) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2013

Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Palate is smooth, slightly airy and a little dry. Mellow dark malt, no roast or bitterness. Slightly tangy. Mellow cocoa chocolate. Touch of ripe fruits before a light and semi dry finish. Not bad but the chocolate tastes cheap.

12 oz. bottle, sent from Perrin515 (thanks Patrick), pours black with a small tan / light brown head. Aroma is very milky, with milk chocolate, lactose, sugar and a bit of alcohol. Flavour is quite rich, full of liquified milk chocolate, lactose, and milk sugar. The milk chocolate is quite potent, rich and creamy, with a fairly thick mouthfeel. Very well-constructed with no harsh edges. Delicious stuff here. Ferris (15267) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
Draft - Chocolate syrup, the expensive kind. Jet black with a thin brown head. Molasses, cocoa, soy and a touch of booze. Nice. Ratman197 (14830) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2013

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with paperthin beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong milk chocolate and light roast. Slick mouthfeel with rich chocolate malt, easy to drink, very good. Drake (13728) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2016
