Appearance: deep, dark brown, with ruby hue at the edges; thick, fine head the colour of espresso crema

Aroma: chocolate, clove, light overall; lactose; caramel

Taste & Mouthfeel: semi-sweet chocolate chips, marshmallow; there's a lightness to it, an airiness - medium-light body, fine carbonation; dry, bitter finish as you'd get from coffee, but sweeter - that surgary note is the backbone really, rounding out the full, roasty flavours

Overall: wonderful, pure chocolate flavours, like chocolate milk in beer form, so obviously better; light, flowing body make it incredibly easy-drinking
