Cask. Deep brown with a small tan head. The aroma’s full of roasted malts, some sweet chocolate, leather. The taste is mildly dry and bitter, then gives way to mild espresso and coffee notes. Approachable. The body’s pretty light for the style, the carbonation quite soft. Overall, OK, though a bit underpowered.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 19, 2012
On cask at the Marble Arch. Pours a very dark brown colour with a decent, light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Similar flavours with choc milk upfront and roasty malt. Nice and bitter with lingering chocolate. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice.

dreadnord (1013) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Pours thick and black. Huge off white head. Nose is hoppy and coffee. I’m not getting any chocolate as the name implies. Maybe it’s to young and the hips is overwhelming it. Flavor transitions from bitter to sweet. Mouthfeel is a bit to sharp as well. I’d like a bit more creaminess from a beer that boasts chocolate.

MaartenRF10 (1584) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2012
Black with nice brown head. Roasted malts and some dark chocolate. Fairly dry, bitter medium bodied beer.

erickok (3492) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JAN 10, 2012
Black, but seemingly clear. Small frothy head. Quite low on aroma. Dry, dusty cacao but not much more. Some dryness, whole fat milk. But to thin maybe. Tasty, not as sessionable as expected.

BeerViking (2428) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2011
Cask at the Magpie, black with a thin white head and a faintly oily sheen. Chocolate and burnt treacle nose with a hint of ginger. Palate is dry and roasty with a full dark chocolate and treacle toffee body. Dry bitter and treacly finish.

imdownthepub (10134) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Southampton Arms, Kentish Town, Gt London. Black with tan head. Dark, burnt, dry malts giving out an almost cocoa powder, Belgian chocolate flavour. Bitter with a smoky edge. Very interesting beer.
