look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A: Dark nut-brown colour, lets little light through, creamy tanned head, little lacing, decent head retention;

S: Strong and sweet chocolate together with a strong malt aroma, hints of caramel, very nice smell;

T: Starts similar to the smell, strong chocolate, but less maltyness and caramel than expected. The finish doesn't last very long, some hop and roasted malt bitterness kick in after the finish, a roasty, slightly bitter aftertaste lingers for a long time;

M: Carbonation level fits the brew perfectly, creates a slightly creamy mouthfeel although the beer feels rather light bodied, lacks some body in my opinion!

O: Amazing smell, pronounced dark chocolate, very appealing. Taste is good, mouthfeel and body lack something in my opinion though

330ml Bottle: at 6.5% ABV, this is the same beer: poured into a Westvleteren chalice on 5th Nov 2013.

Lovely red hue to the dark body, sadly the tan coloured head soon fell away to a wispy covering.

The nose was surprise, surprise, fairly chocolatey in nature, rich, dark chocolate to be exact.

Taste wise it was also chocolate led in flavour, some coffee notes too: as it warmed a little some sweet vanilla hints began to arrive.

Medium bodied for a Porter and not at all creamy, although it was fairly smooth in the mouth.

Not as powerful or flavoursome as I expected: not bad, but no world beater.

Picked up at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam.

Poured into a tulip glass - dark, almost black color, but with a low enough viscosity that light can peak through the glass. As such, much less creamy, or full, as a stout. Nice hints of chocolate, and the light carbonation perks it up so you chocolate notes pop back up in the aftertaste.

On the label, it recommends to have as a desert beer or digestif, but I would defer to something a tad stronger, fuller-bodied.

3.86/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: The beer is clear but very dark brownish red in color and has ever so slight hints of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that quickly died down, leaving patches of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light aromas of chocolate are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is quite chocolately and tastes like a watered down version of Hershey's Chocolate Syrup without the sweetness and some hints of bitterness.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and a little thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has nice flavors of chocolate that seem natural and not too heavy and sweet. It tastes more like an English Porter compared to a Baltic Porter.
