Bottle from Sainsburys. Deep mahogany with no head. Rich, sweet chocolate fondant, with some coffee and a dryish finish. Ok, if not particularly memorable.

berkshirejohn (4206) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2012
50cl bottle from the Sainsburyís Beer Hunt range. A cola-brown pour with a rapidly vanishing beige head; chocolate milkshake aroma; rather thin and watery, but with a good coffee and chocolate taste; rounded off with some chocolate fudge; therís a hint of dryness and bitterness in there, but it doesnít really get out.

leaparsons (7805) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle. Very dark brown with a cream foam. Aromas are coffee and chocolate with molasses and nutty notes. Slightly smoky with fudge and raisins. Flavours are sweet molasses with gritty cocoa and coffee. Earthy with blackberry and raisins. Dark chocolate bitterness with some woodiness. Dry to finish.

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2012
500ml bottle from Sainsburys Ashford. Thin camp coffee type beer. Yes itís got some choc and some coffee life, but itís a bit thin in the body. Nothing wrong with it. Just if you are going to do this style of beer actually through a bit more intensity at it. If you are going to play with the big boys, then bring some noise. Itís fine. Itís a good step in the right direction for this type of brewery. But be big and bold and go for it.

nick76 (4145) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2012
The aroma is very chocolaty like chocolate milk with brown sugar and touch of coffee. The appearance is dark amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with an astringent finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a nice beer.

Palidor19 (2881) - Brandon, Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2012
the beer has a nice chocolate flavor but the beer has a not very good after taste astringent flavor that is almost unappealing. hardly anything will last in the long run

keepersj12 (2561) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2012
Just like it says, chocolate and coffee. Both in the aroma and flavor. A perfect dessert beer. Not as heavy as a stout, much more refreshing. The finish lingers with chocolate.

mbgrayson (505) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Pours a dark, clear brown, with a little tan head. Aroma of chocolate. Taste is heavily of chocolate, with malt and little coffee. Smooth and drinkable. If you want a decent chocolate flavored beer, try this one. Not too expensive either: $4.99 for a pint. Thumbs up.
