Lonick (1571) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2016
Cask @The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh. Pours black with a beige head. Nose is big chocolate and some liquorice with some toffee sweetness as well. Taste is along the same lines with some coffee in there as well, my only fault with the beer is that its a bit thin. [Rating Backlog:Aug/Sept 2016]

JoTheO (122) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2016
Cask at Craft Beer Co Clerkenwell. Deep brown with a thin light brown head. Aroma of sweet dark fruits and chocolate. Taste is initially intense with milk chocolate but after a while malty sweetness arrives. Sweet, but in a controlled way.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2016
Handpull cask at the Magpie & Crown, Brentford. Slightly translucent purplish black, with a ring of tan head. Sweet milk chocolate and liquorice candy in the aroma. Intense sweet taste dominated by liquorice. Some bittering hop tempers the balance later in the sip but it’s a bit too sweet for me. Strangely, it feels like there’s heavy alcohol in the long finish, which makes it taste stronger than it actually is. I tend not to like these heavily chocolatey porters/stouts, but I do feel that although this is a decent beer all in all, there are balance issues.

JorgeLee (1800) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2016
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Great bottle design. Brown in colour, ruddy hints in the depths, decent white foam. Very complex and chewy beer, quite some bitter roasty malt character, coffee beans, nuts, hint of herbal hop, some underlying malty sweetness. Drinks very easily for abv.

McWorta (1530) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 26, 2016
Dark brown with a rocky beige head. Aromas of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, dried dark fruits and a hint of roasted nuts develop. Softly carbonated and rather smooth offering a medium body. Roast bitterness and light astringency form the main theme here. Medium yet bit dry finish.

theprof (527) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2016
Cask. Pours mahogany with tan cream top. Aroma chocolate flake. Tastes smoothly of milk chocolate with licorice to the back to give a tang. No more than medium bodied despite its creamy qualities. I liked it but cannot imagine drinking another right now.
