3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with about a 1/2 inch if tan foam. Looks like some light colored yeast floaters settling to the bottom. I get some light Belgium aroma. Maybe banana and a little chocolate. Taste is sort of fruity with a chocolate finish. Chocolate is more intense when colder and gives way to the fruit as it warms. Makes me wonder if it was more chocolatey when younger. Creamy palate with moderate carbonation. Overall very nice beer. Not too much chocolate, well balanced.
chocolaty aroma; fantastic, smooth, slightly chocolaty flavor; not sweet, but rather a dry chocolate flavor; a great desert beer Bacchus66 (1006) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2017
750ml at home. Dark brown with a full tan head. Heavy chocolate, roasted malts, toffee, caramel. Light carb. Lingering malty finish. Flavors improve with the temperature. Westy1130 (110) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2017
Rich dark appearance with frothy head. Aroma: fresh ground cocoa, and coffee beans. Deceptively bitter on the palate and not as chocolatey as it seems. very hoppy and malty. jsporrer (1146) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Pours a deep dark brown to black with a big tan foamy head. Strong aroma of cocoa and sweet malts. Smooth creamy body with a medium texture. Nice cocoa taste with a hint of coffee flavor and roasted malts. Smooth finish and a decent aftertaste. Enjoyable but not that special. jsnicholas (709) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2016

Pours a nice deep dark brown(almost black) color. Aromas of chocolate, smoke, and some sweetness. Flavor is dark chocolate, a touch of berry, and smokey. Creamy with a dry finish and a bittersweet aftertaste. NikkTwist (3409) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Draft at Bru Craft. Black pour with thick khaki foam. Large splashes of lace. Dark milk cocoa. Burnt roasted nuts. Sarsaparilla. Prune juice. Vanilla beans. Blackberries. Medium-full body. Wish it was creamier. N3lson1 (1010) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - APR 26, 2016
Drank from a pint glass, poured from a 750mL bottle. Pours a beautiful, dark, velvety black, with plenty of thick frothy head, an absolute beautiful looking brew! Strong aromas of chocolate, with a slight note of Belgian yeast. Nice chocolaty smoothness without being overpowering, just a wonderful, amazing brew! johnnymusky (1004) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 14, 2016
