Taste comprises toffee, cheap tasting chocolate, sugars, caramel, dose of malt. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Ok fayre and a good few notches better than the bottled version!

leaparsons (8037) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2013
Cask, William Wygston, Wigston. Very dark brown with a beige foam. Aromas are coffee with smoky notes and raisins. Bready yeast with chocolate and dark cherries and vinous notes. Medicinal with dark chocolate and light nuttiness. Flavours are sweet and a little sour with dark chocolate and plummy fruits. Raisins with tart dark cherry. Roasted malts with a dry, earthy, spicy finish and more fruit. Nice.

maeib (8658) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Moon On The Square Northampton 05/04/13. A black beer with a beige head. Lots of coffee and chocolate no doubt but actually itís a bit overkill. The nose is very welcoming but the mouth is too heavy. Does what it intends but for me it needs mellowing. Big body, big beer but a little ill directed.

DanielBrown (3781) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2013
Cask at Figure of Eight, Brum. Disappointingly, this is better than I had been promised. As far as Iím concerned, this is better than Samuel Smiths Organic Chocolate Stout. Thanks.

Cask at The William Morris (Wetherspoons), Hammersmith, London. A dark brown/ruby coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Rich sweet chocolate aroma. Tastes sweet, mocha chocolate, hint of coffee. Rich and sweet, quite impressed by this one. Best beer of the fest for me.

Cask@the flying horse JDW Gatwick Airport - Very dark brown to black in colour with almost no head. Nice aroma of choc/mocca but found it rather too sweet in taste for my palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
