Poured a rich black. Really nice chocolate and coffee notes in the aroma. But everything went downhill from the first taste. This had a really sharp, almost acidic aftertaste. Overly boozy, perhaps? Maybe it was a bad bottle? Not sure. I was hopeful on this one. Wouldn’t go back.

Very bitter chocolate, kinda like a dry Irish stout but more added flavor. The bitterness is not doing it for me it is a bit too hoppy for me.

Charred and raspy notes take you down a long dark lane. Mahogany-tinged black in the St. Bernardus globe. Modest foam with plenty of spritz in the mouth. Aroma of coffee and chocholate.

Smoky cocoa is the big flavor. Roasted malt followed by major burnt sugar and a dose of vanilla. Sweet overtones with caramel. Seriously bitter finish with an endless aftertaste of burnt grain.

Interesting and intense. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottlecraft in San Diego.
