Tessic (967) - Brantford, Ontario, - DEC 21, 2013
This chocolate stout poured a deep black colour with a big, tan coloured, creamy head. Scents include chocolate to the 9th degree, cherries and cream. First sip was a shitload of cocoa flavor with additional flavours of cherries, cherry whiskey and Cherry Blossom chocolate bars. Finish is cocoa to the extreme, almost syrup.

rouhlas (1482) - GREECE - OCT 6, 2015
750ml bottle. Black color with beige head. Aroma is chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate, cocoa. Heavy sweet and light bitter taste like aroma, milk chocolate and cocoa. Medium to full oily creamy body with soft carbonation. I love chocolate but I couldnt drink more than 3-4 sips of this!

Kauge (843) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2015
Tap at WVRST. Black with thick tan head and good lace. Really sweet upfront with strong cocoa powder notes following. Not really heavy in the mouth, it’s got nice drinkability despite the massive, massive sweetness. Starts to get too boozy quite fast. Over the top, extreme. Overly sweet, boozy calory bomb. Wish I only had a sample... I like extreme beers but I didn’t manage to down the last 1/3 of this.

Nische (1282) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Sample at SBWF. The pour is a nice dark brown/black color with a small khaki head. Heavily sweet aroma and taste with chocolate, vanilla and light roast. Almost like chocolate milk. A dessert in itself.

gyllenbock (6203) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Sample at SBWF 2015. Black with a tan head. Very, very sweet with a lot of chocolate, milk and vanilla. Artificial and quite strange. Not my kind of beer.

olsvammel (4443) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Sample at SBWF 2015. Milky smell with chocolate. Creamy and milky taste with chocolate. Very milky and creamy, like drinking alcoholic chocolate milk. Also a bit artificial, but not to bad.

Tsekouratos (543) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - SEP 18, 2015
750 ml bottle shared at a RB tasting session in Chania, Greece. Pours a black color with a nice brown head. Aroma is milk chocolate and maybe some vanilla. Taste is really sweet and intense, just what the bottle says, it’s a chocolate Bomb!! Milk chocolate, vanilla, some milk notes. Body is full and the carbonation is low, and that may be the only negative as it tends to stuff you after a while. Still, very nice!!

gunnar (6720) - Sandnes, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2015
Shared bottle at Crete RB tasting at Antons place 16.9.15. Pours black with a big creamy tanned head. Super chocolate aroma, very intense and almost unbelievable for a brewed beverage. Taste is like a rich chocolate ice cream, fantastic taste, not too sweet for a sweet tooth like me, just a chocolate bomb disguised as a beer. Full bodied, very good and extreme experience.

Brandman (2477) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2015
Chocolate is huge in aroma. Also lots of pink bubblegum. Chocolate and alcohol. Cream liquer as in baileys. Alcohol in taste but not bothering. Huge chocolate notes.

750 ml bottle. Bottled on Dec/14/2014. Courtesy of Brandman. HHOK17.
Black color with a small frothy tan head. The aroma is pure chocolate! Big time. There’s also liqueur fills and fruit marmalade. Nice. The flavor is booze and chocolate. But the booze is tasty. Some cream liqueur and crème brûlée there too. Very tasty and even hardcore. Just a little thin for a 10% brew. But I love it.

Whatup14 (1167) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2015
Bouteille 750ml. Couleur noire opaque, mousse moka crémeuse et tenace laissant une belle dentelle. Arôme de chocolat, cacao, vanille, touche amaretto, un gâteau au chocolat liquide quoi! Goût de cacao, chocolat, malt torréfié, sucré, soupçon de café, c’est comme boire du chocolat liquide. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen-dense.
