Got this in my Christmas stocking this year in a fancy tube box with a branded pint glass.
It has very very subtle chocolate tones and smells a little like burnt chocolate (I used to live near a Kraft factory so I know the smell)
Pours dark as you would expect with a minimal head that doesn’t live for long.
I was underwhelmed by the chocolate in the taste. I felt it was more coffee like to be honest. Tasted a bit like the old school Guinness you can still get. I definitely get coffee overtones (just hit me).
Overall it’s okay. I would pick this over Guinness I think, and I have been a big fan of Arthur’s classic for many years. This just seems to have a bit more depth in it.
Good beer. Was underwhelmed to start but it grew on me.
