Itís certainly chocolatey and Iíll also give them silky. The one thing itís missing is beery. Itís lacks punch and lacks complexity. Depending on your tastes the flavour may be sumptuous or too sweet. Personally I sit somewhere in the middle

No, I didnít like it. No good chocolate on the nose, neither on the flavour. Not a good porter. More like an Ovaltine beer, or one of those abominable Baltic Porters (I mean, the bad ones).

Nice chocolate aroma. Medium bodied with a silky smooth chocolate taste. The chocolate taste is quite strong but overall I think this is a pretty good beer.

Couldnít finish the bottle. Nasty sweet beer. Go grab a hot chocolate and add a nip of whisky if you feel the need to have chocolate & alcohol mixed. God knows what the food match for this beer is...

This beer is a beautiful flavoured chocolate beer. One of the most palatable beers. Highly recommend and hope others enjoy it as much as me.

Perhaps I am feeling generous but definitely worth a try if you like dark beers and donít mind some sweetness.

Probably the worst beer Iíve ever had. Like drinking beer flavoured hot chocolate. Too sweet to be taken seriously.

Absolutely the best chocolate porter I have ever tasted.
Luscious silkyness on the palate with almost overpowering chocolately things happening on the nose and in the mouth. While this may not truely fit as an English porter style it certainly ticked all the other boxes as a very enjoyable ale.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is a simple beast, and only scored so highly for me because I do love chocolate. Very sweet in all aspects but quite thin on the palate. This is a beer that when you rate it ticks a lot of boxes but when you look at the overall it just not warrant a good score. I could not see me drinking more than one of these in a night as the sweetness is quite overpowering.
