Pitch black pour with a thin tan head. Cacao nibs, raspberries, dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, more fruit, some boozy barrel. Feels a bit artificial, but otherwise pretty decent.

Pours pitch black, a brown head with a little retention. Aroma's: big raspberry and chocolate, mon cheri (but with raspberry rather than cherry), boozy. Retronasal the chocolate is more pronounced, the raspberry a bit subdued, sweet, liqueur. Flavour is above moderate sweet, roasty, chocolate, fruity. Rather full bodied. Alcohol is well hidden. Finishes with lots of chocolate, slightly roasty bitterish.

Taster at home courtesy of Sander, big thanks. black color, small coffee colored head. smells bit boozy, raspberries, bitter chocolate, toffee, vanilla, marzipan, fudgy, bit liquerish, very nice smell. full body, soft carbonation. tastes of raspberries, vanilla, bitter chocolate, lightly fudgy, bit liquerish, light nutty. finishes lightly sweet and lightly boozy with notes of raspberries, bitter chocolate and some vanilla notes. very nice one, not super complex but does what it says, very nice balance and easy to drink.

Päris lääge kraam, isegi vaarikad ei suuda tasakaalustada. Šokolaad on siin muidu iseenesest äge. 3.4
