Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of I think 15th April 2022. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a one finger mocha brown head that had decent retention and left nice spotty lacing.

Taste: Roasty malts, coffee, mocha, rich chocolate, vanilla and hints of caramel with a lightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Rich, velvety, smooth, full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Just a wonderful sipper with especially great rich and smooth chocolate and coffee flavours.
