Dark brown almost black with a tan, disappearing, light lacy head. Super strong smell of coco. If you buy coco powder it has a similar smell. Not so much hot chocolate but coco. Coffee , malt and roast. Medium to thin body with soft carbonation. First is a taste of chocolate but not as sweet as a candy bar. More like dark chocolate with roast and some coffee elements. The finish is nice with hops making a nice balance. It’s really delicious. Defiantly a chocolate delight.

500ml bottle. Pours dark red, almost black with a thin tan head. Sweet chocolate aroma, chocolate and coffee dominate the flavour. Thin mouthfeel but otherwise great

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2015 Glorious coffee and chocolate aroma, nearly the creaminess of a stout. For coffee lovers.

DIBBLE (102) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle from Sainsburys, Christchurch, Dorset. Huge chocolate and coffee aroma. Brief fizzy tan to nonexistent head over deeply dark reddish tinged beer. Lively and full mouthfeel. Sweet and lightly bitter with a dry sweet finish. Coffee and chocolate through and through. Malty bass notes.

AWS9 (549) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle. Sweet coffee and chocolatey mocha. Bit too sweet, but may work better as a dessert beer option. One to split I think. Touch of stickiness, but certainly hits the sweet tooth nicely.

Dark very, no head. Strong mocha, chocolate and nut aroma, strong mocha and chocolate flavor, without any annoying bitterness. Like drinking a very nice dessert.

uckelman (393) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
Pours chocolate brown, but clear. Thin oily tan head. Huge cocoa aroma. Reminds me a great deal of a cafe mocha. Medium-light body and fairly lively. Quite a bit of carbonic acid on the finish. This is a sledgehammer, flavor-wise. There’s a lot of flavor, but not much subtlety.
