Cask@moonunderwater, wolverhampton. Almost black ale with medium Michael head. Aroma of cocoa. Taste is smooth chocolate, some dark berries and coffee. There is more sweetness there than I remember in the bottled version. Smooth on palate but a little thin. A very good beer.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - APR 27, 2013
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in April 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear dark mahogany in colour with ruby highlights and a thin creamy buff head. Sweet aroma of drinking chocolate powder in the long nose. Thin creamy mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malts gives a sweet whack of chocolate brownies and a warming coffee cream liqueur. There is very little in the way of hop resins present in the brief aftertaste as malt dominates the finish with sweet notes of juicy morello cherries, milk chocolate vermicelli and smooth mocha coffee. Tasted more like a Polish chocolate porter in style, rich and very heavy going. Just loved it, well recommended.

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.

DanielBrown (3927) - 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 I’m concerned, this is better than Samuel Smiths Organic Chocolate Stout. Thanks.

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.

Sir John Oldcastle Spoons. Clear dark red-amber beer. Tidy pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Very mild carbonation. Sweet tangy powdered chocolate with a good balance of plummy fruits and red berry fruits. Trace of bubblegum ester. Coffee is well buried. Smooth semi dry finish with a light chocolate aftertaste. Pretty good.
