Black colour, with a brown head that kees a ring and a good lace. Aroma of coffee (mocha), milk chocolate, dark fruits, liquor. Full body, live carbonation. Taste of mocha, milk chocolate, dark fruits, alcohol, sherry wine. Great.

Very dark brown, close to black, in colour. Beige head that gives way to a beautiful espresso-like lacing. If you spin the glass around a few times, you'll get a finger of head again, just beautiful. Smells like roasted malts, dried fruit, dark cherries and coffee. The taste is what you'd expect from the aroma - dark cherries, dark chocolate, molasses and instant coffee. The texture is incredibly smooth and the aftertaste is cherry-bitter. Amazing beer. I am tasting this after several of its barrel-aged variants, and I can see why the latter are so good, because they have an awesome base beer to improve on.

Big vanilla and chocoalte aroma. Sharp but balanced coffee notes up front on the palate along with rich milk chocolate. A very good beer, but for +$1.00/oz at a high volume beer bar.... there are better options.

This viscous brew is just shy of amazing, pours jet black with a nice mocha head. Loads of malt & grain in the nose and the taste follows suit.
