COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not for the faint hearted! Our stout rewards the palate with robust flavor of roasted malts (malts are roasted like coffee beans) and heavy hops. A creamy smooth surprise.

Pours dark brown with minimal head. Aroma and flavor of malt/coffee. Almost has a creamy quality to it. An outstanding stout that I plan to share with my friends.

Pours black, with a smallish but thick mocha head. Aromas of roasted malts and dark chocolate nibs fill the nose. Definitely some coffee breaking through too. Palate is thick and creamy. Tastes are dark chocolate, coffee, malts. Overall this is a very solid stout, right up there with the best I’ve had. Very drinkable and I would gladly consume more of this.

"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."

worldbeertaste (1670) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
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
