4.49/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

(4.25) A: Pitch black with a sizeable and bubbly mocha-coloured foam head which recedes quickly to a ring. Great sticky lacing down the glass.

(4.5) S: Dark bitter chocolate (lots of it), espresso bean, molasses, caramel, and a bit of smoke. This has a nice underlying earthy herbal element to it as well (oats maybe). Incredible how raw and intense the chocolate and coffee bean aromas are – hard to imagine a more intense aroma.

(4.5) T: Loads of dark chocolate and espresso, molasses, herbal qualities, some vanilla, and caramel. Bitter with just enough sweetness to provide a nicely balanced finish. Pleasantly dry throughout. Appreciate how this focuses on the bitter side of the roasted malt qualities and less on the sweeter side.

(4.5) M: Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Incredibly creamy, adequate oiliness, and very smooth.

(4.5) D: This deserves the reputation it has. Fantastic bitter and bold chocolate and espresso qualities combined with a creamy and full bodied mouthfeel were of world class standards.
