A: Dark brown almost black and very thick looking like oil. Slight copper tinge when held to the light at the edge, 3 fingers foam toffee colour head. Fine lacing left as well.


S: Dark toasted notes, molasses. Not really coffee or chocolate but molasses. Hint of fruitiness, but molasses, need I say it again?


T: Okay, coffee comes in, dark 80% plus dark chocolate, burnt charred finish that lingers on the tongue. A hint of sweetness.


M: Medium thick slightly oily body, little carbonation.


O: It’s a great brew. Will try it with a Cuban Cigar. Drank in Kunming, Jan 13th, 2015.

Pours a black to dark brown with two fingers off brown head, leaving sporadic off white lace. Aroma is molasses and a touch of coffee. Taste is bitter like coffee but then a wave of sweet balances it out with some dark chocolate and molasses. Really enjoyable.
