look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 500ml bottle, bottled 031114.

Pours a dark brown with a thick, 4 finger brown head and great retention. Aroma is coca, and chocolate shavings. Taste has a nice semi-sweet chocolate base but not getting much vanilla. Medium body at best, lacks a little but a good pick i think.
