Intro: A 500ml waxed bottle (that while looks nice, was just a pain to open), with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark dark brown to black in colour with a half finger brown head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Milk chocolate, cream, vanilla and a light nuttiness.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, chocolate, vanilla and cream.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Lots of chocolate and vanilla and not too sweet. If body was just that little bit fuller, it would have been even better.
