Masses of chocolate malt creates a full-bodied, palate-coating beer that is rich and smooth. Notes of chocolate, tobacco and espresso, it’s smoky, toasty and tasty!

maneliquor (3274) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Nose is bitter and chocolatey with a touch of meaty smoke which works nicely. As it warms liquorice comes through. Taste is more of the smoked malts and bittering chocolate. Aniseed adds a nice touch. Nice stuff. Kind of like a better Guinness

Beersiveknown (3251) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 9, 2014
dark brown with ruby highlights and tan head. Too cold so little on the nose but starts to give up chocolate and red berries as it warms. Full bodied with modertate carbonation. Creamy chocolate, dry toast and red berries. Perhaps a bit thinner than some but plenty of flavour.

garthicus (2729) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUN 21, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Appearance: pitch oily black, thick mocha brown head. Aroma: Malty with underlying dark chocolate & espresso. Flavour: Very light mouthfeel initially, makes way to a rich chocolate, lots of espresso, smokey , in fact almost a fresh tobacco flavour, very rich and flavoursome, delicious spice and coffee finish. Quite lovely indeed.

Tap at the brewpub, basically a chocolate Porter. Touch of milk texture, hints of smoke and coffee, more choc, very very quaffable.
