Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/01/2012

Appearance

(330ml bottle) Dark mahogany brown with huge, lasting beige head which leaves thick lacing in its wake.

Aroma

Caramel, estery alcohol, French stick crust malt and mocha coffee.

Taste

High alcohol level adds bite to burnt toasty malty palate with yeasty bitter chocolate.

Aftertaste

Bitter finish is reminiscent of a bitter chocolate amaretto.
