TFODRBSG08 Courtesy of Brugmansia. The color is dark brown with a red hue. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and a little chocolate. The mouthfeel is flat and the flavour has notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, a light sweetness and hints of fruit. It’s hard to believe, that this isn’t a porter.

Bottle. Blackish/purple beer with a sweet milky chocolate and roasted aroma. The flavour is quite watery at the finish, but at the beginning it is roasted, milky chocolate and slightly bitter. Overall an average beer. johndoughty (5449) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle. Dark almost black with a medium body. Malty but with an astringency that gives it a slightly sulphuric aftertaste. If it wasn’t for this it would have scored higher. Interesting story on the label. Ungstrup (37594) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2007
