2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle, present from a friend. Pours a dark ruby brown with a thin bubbly head that disappears quickly. Almost absent aroma, light molasses and bready hints, no chocolate whatsoever - not great. Medium bitterness and a very light smoky sweetness, better taste than aroma. Very light hint of chocolate, more watery molasses. Way too carbonated, yet a slightly thin mouthfeel. Not a chocolate stout as far as this drinker is concerned, and not a good stout anyway. Won’t be drinking this again.

330 ml bottle.
Gusher. Pours a black colour with a massive white head. Aroma is very weak with notes of chocolate and some berries. Flavour is weak with notes of roasted malts, chocolate and some bitterness. Carbonation is so high that I’m out of words. Alcohol comes through. Ruined.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Dark brown body, close to black with a big, creamy, good lacing beige head. Relatively mild but nice aroma from black, light roasted malt, some dry fruit and a hint of (not particular) black chocolate. Flavour is very smooth malty, light roasted, dark fruit, balanced bitterness and some chocolate towards the end. Medium plus body and a decent aftertaste in the same direction of the main flavours. Not outstanding, but a very pleasant brew.
