This is a delicious beer. Textbook stout, with a nice roasted malt sweetness. A little less smokiness in the bitterness, but I like that. A thick consistency. My only quibble is how can a beer that’s less than 6% abv really be called a stout instead of a porter?

"this was my first ever chocolate stout back in 2001(?). pours jet black, sweet malt and chocolate up front, nice body, if a little on the thin side. smooth, with a slightly surprising, slightly bitter finish. solid beer, great as a float."

Dark brown with a thin, tan, ring, disappearing, slightly lacy head. Nice smells of roast wih caramel, raisins and lots of deep chocolaty malt. Soft bitter roasty a nice sweetness and a dry roasty centre and finishes with sweet malt, chocolate and a lingering dark fruity raisin bitterness.

pours unclear very dark brown with a nice light beige cap showing some retention and lacing. luscious chocolate and roasted malts - nice profile, never overly roasted, some red fruitiness, semi-sweet molasses, woodsy and resinous. light carbonation, medium body - oily and smooth, assertive resinous-woodsy finish. good!

Black as treacle with a creamy and classic head, with lots of roasted coffee and bitter chocolate on the nose. Then more coffee and chocolate with a little nuttiness and a rich caramel malt finish. Damn tasty

Rich taste of caramel, chocolate, coffee and nuts. The kind of taste that one would associate w/a bitter finish. However, to my surprise and delight it has a smooth malty finish.
