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.

Dark brown pour with practically no head. Aroma is crazy chocolate. Like chocolate syrup. Get some alcohol in there too. The taste is pretty gross. Taste is medicinal and fake. Not good.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a medium dark brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing notes. Aroma of pure chocolate notes with some sweet notes is pretty intense but enjoyable. Taste is pure chocolate and coca notes with some residual sugar notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol notes. Enjoyable in small quantities as I find that drinking too much gets a bit gross with light flavouring notes coming out too much.

Poured a medium yo darker tepid brown with a tiny beige head. Aroma was big milk chocolate and Tootsie rolls. Flavor similar, but a bit astringent, and verywatery and no depth.

Bottle from the store at the brewery. Pours a deep dark black/ brown, light brown head that all but disappears, not much for lacing. Nose is pure chocolate. Reminds me of chocolate covered cherries. Tastes sweet, cocoa powder, abv burn, a little bitter, thin, still get the cherry too. Really nice.

Bottled. Overall mind blowing! Pours a pitch black color with a beige soapy head. Aroma of tons of chocolate, rum, cherries, punch. Taste mirrors the aroma. Loads of chocolate, rum, cherries, red wine, punch. Mon cherry chocolate aftertaste. Brilliant, beyond, top-notch!

Deep dark brown, beige head. Aroma of lots of chocolate. Full body, flavour is even more chocolate,it’s like the chocolate sponge cake of your dreams.

Pours black with a thin mocha head. Aroma of chocolate, big chocolate, Hershey syrup. Taste is chocolate, roast, a bit artificial like a tootsie roll. Very different.

Tap @ BrewDog Barcelona, 22/06/15. Pours a dark brown, black with a nice, beige head. Aroma is chocolate pudding, enchantingly so. Cream liqueur. Taste follows along the same lines: Chocolate pudding cream liqueur, some dark maltiness, roast. Somewhat too sweet and cloying to be enjoyable for even a third. Maybe 100ml would be enough. Full.

Une bouteille partagée au feu. Dans mon verre, une robe brune foncée avec des contours rouges. La tête mousseuse est a priori épaisse. Au nez, une véritable liqueur de chocolat avec des nuances de fruits, de noix et de crème. Appétissant! Au goût, un richissime liquide chocolaté qui n’est jamais écœurant. Touche de Bailey’s et/ou autre composé décadent. Aucune présence de l’alcool. C’est tout à fait dangereux. En bouche, la texture est crémeuse à souhait. En finale, une manière de travailler les sucres résiduels qui me semble superbement brillante. Peu complexe mais solide et appréciée de tous et de toutes.

Wow, c’est franchement intense ça! Le Bailey’s et les noix sont facilement perceptibles; je note aussi la présence de vanille et de cerises, un peu comme le liquide dans un Cherry Blossom... C’est fou comme l’alcool est discret! Personnellement, j’ai adoré mon premier verre mais ensuite, c’était beaucoup trop lourd, trop riche, et j’ai passé mon tour ;-( En fait, c’est son seul défaut cette lourdeur sucrée en fin de bouche. Embouteillée en février 2014.
