Tried on-tap at Euston Tap in London.
Pours a very pleasant deep brown colour, darkly hazed to make it look opaque. Body is fluid but weighty and hold minimal but solid carbonation. Head is disappointing though: fine but very filmy, with beige colouring in a sheeting ring.
Mild toast in the nose, leaving a little cacao character and a little salt/savoury undertone. Slight chocolate comes through as it warms, but it's very mild. Very mild overall. Not a bunch to it.
Flavour is extremely sweet, almost from the outset. Mild anise on the front, but otherwise almost sickening. Extremely sweet chocolate, some cherry and fake strawberry icecream. Back has stacks of milk chocolate with lingering sugar, creaminess and more sugar sweetness. Very, very sweet indeed. Feel is full and slightly sickly.
It's way too heavy and sweet. To be honest, I feel like I liked big sweet stouts, but apparently this beer has turned my head. It's too much, and there's no balance here—something to counteract it would be a great boon, maybe some oak or even a bigger booziness. As it is, it's too much by half.

Pours black with a very small light tan head.
Nose shows roasted malt, milk chocolate and oatmeal. Tempting.
More roasted malt as a flavour along with some lactose sweetness. Not all that complex, some toasty and nutty malt.
Needs more carbonation.

Pours a dark kola hue with a wispy one finger head that doesn't even say hello and a tiny layer of lacing around the rim hmmm not ideal,smell is dark Belgian chocolate,choc milk, a slight touch of coffee and funnily enough liver,the mouthfeel is medium bodied with nice moderate carbonation and the taste is full of rich dark sweet malts,rich chocolate,donoughts and finished with a vanilla milkiness and overall yeah I'm still looking for someone who can really nail this style and wouldn't buy this again cheers.

Pours a dark brown to black with a medium tan hea dthat lasted the entire beer. Aroma of roasted malt, latte coffee, chocolate biscuit and a bit of Graham cracker. Taste is similar with more of a bitter black coffee presence and lot’s of roasted malt on the back of the throat. Feel was medium and in my opinion a bit thin for the style. A nice beer
