SilverfoX (871) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2014
chocolate and coriander aromas from a think black body thin creamy head, medium sweetness an intense dark chocolate bitterness with that coriander coming through in the aftertaste, full body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish. this was really rather good though it is very rich tasting!

ogniskowicz (773) - POLAND - APR 24, 2014
Nieprzenikniona czerń z kremową, jasnobeżową, dość szybko zanikajacą pianką. Lekki zapach na granicy kawy i czekolady. W smaku - najpierw lekka kawowość i mleczna czekolada, z kwaskowatą, owocową goryczką. Bardzo pijalne.

dj (580) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
Bottle, 500ml. Black colour with a medium brown head. A roasted malt aroma with some wet dog notes. Flavour of roasted malt with coffee, treacle and a little chocolate. A little citrus in the finish with a bit of a funky kick (probably the coriander). Watery on the palate. Sounds like a cross between a stout and a Belgian wit; doesnt really work for me.

Butelka. Barwa czarna z ładnie oblepiającą pianą. W aromacie palone słody, czekolada, kremowość, kolendra. Piwo jest gładkie, w smaku dominuje mleczna czekolada, paloność, śmietnkowość. Bardzo pijalne.

Bottle 50cl, a dark beer with medium copper head. Nose is malty with fruity touch such as over ripped apples and apricot notes. Aroma is on a creamy chocolate and smooth coffee, light red fruit acidity, less sweet, roasted finish with still fruit acidity. Easy drinkable, good chocolate body.
