500 ml. bottle. Served in pint glass, pours a dark colour, with red hints when held to the light. Rch and creamy biege head, leaving a beige lace. Smell of mocca, chocolate, candy and dark fruits, maybe coriander.
Rich and creamy too in the palate, not much carbonation, and no needed.
Taste is like the smell: chocolate, mocca, dark fruits. And alcohol.

Awesome flavor and full bodied. Goes great with a splash of Kahlua or other Coffee liqueur.

A very cool looking 500ml bottle poured into shaker pint glass.

Appearance - Pitch black with a thick, light brown head. Good stickage. An absolute thing of beauty.

Smell - It actually smells like a semi-sweet chocolate bar (I'm not kidding).

Taste - It tastes like a semi-sweet chocolate bar, too!

Mouth - Oily. A bit tart. Good carbonation. Substantial.

Overall - A nice, malty stout with just a touch of bitterness. Despite the big nose and roasted malt flavor, the beer is relatively light and easy drinking. The beer reminds me, a little, of a German Doppelbock.
