COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
So very smooth, so very chocolatey, coats your mouth with rich bitter cocoa and slides down like a velvety glove. A luxurious treat of a beer.

jackl (4292) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle at Scopey’s CBC Tune-Up. Gusher of a bottle. Deep brown with a massive tan head. The nose is mild milk chocolate, sweet brown sugar and toasted hazlenut. The taste is charred coffee grounds, sweet chocolate syrup. Slick with a dry finish. Despite the 5% abv, this drinks a bit hot. Overall, a pretty decent stout from Bristol.

Scopey (6140) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle at my Pre-CBC Tune-Up Tasting. Gusher! It pours dark brown, with a thin beige head. The nose is cocoa, bitter chocolate, roasted malt and filter coffee. The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, bitter chocolate, filter coffee and toast, with a dry finish. Medium body, lively carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. A solid stout.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Pours an opaque murky dark brown with a tiny off-white head. Juicy, pruney nose. Medium body, almost flat, alright - a little chocolatey if you insist but close to being ruined by cheesy fermentation errors, overripe pruney fruit. Hardly any bitterness. 030312

Bottle. Pours dark brown with beige head. A very smooth chocolate, roast and liquorice brew. Nicely balance of sweetness to begin before a clean bitter finish.
