COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very tempting extreme twist on the classic robust porter, brewed with over 300 kg of malt and infused with a dash of rich Dutch cocoa and whole vanilla beans. Luscious chocolate, coffee, and caramel flavors are balanced by a hint of vanilla and a body of 6% alcohol. A perfect winter warmer or a complement to meat pies and chocolate-based desserts. A definite "unisex" beer with great appeal for both guys and gals.

Simply the best beer i have tasted. Pours inky black with a dense tan head. Chocolate aroma is reflected in a malty chocolate mid palate that turns creamy on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from cellarbrations super store in Hami hill. Pours dark brown with a ring tan head. Aroma is a mixture of vanilla and chocolate. Body is medium with low carbonation. Taste is much like the aroma, mixture of bitter sweet chocolate. Interesting flavours really enjoyed

On keg at The Local Taphouse. Pours... Dark, yup. Roasty nose, but surprisingly more coffee notes than chocolate/cocoa. Typical keg paleness. Taste is not nearly as rich as aroma, sadly. I was hoping for more, this one is quite bland.

From draft at Taps KL. Black color with small tan head. Aroma is light, but hints of chocolate and hops. Flavors of chocolate are very present with malts and light hops. Hits of biscuits and light spices. quite light body, and not to sweet , somewhat watery, but still very nice with flavors of a nice desert beer.
