Poured from a 500ml brown bottle
Pours a opaque black color. Nice dark head and great lacing.
Aroma at first is very sweet, like heavy duty cough syrup, which then yielded a nice chocolate like aroma. Can definitely smell the dark chocolate the label says has been added. I can detect other aromas in there, but hard to tell what they are as the chocolate smell seems pretty dominant, one of the other aromas is almost like cinnamon gum or something similar. Overall a great aroma.
Taste is fantastic. Lots of nice roasted malts, and of course the chocolate flavors. Roasted malts are dominant and the start which gives way to the chocolate flavors and has a nice smooth finish with a slight coffee like aftertaste. Smooth and creamy with light to moderate carbonation, very good mouthfeel.
Overall a great one, would definitely recommend this one.
