COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cold fermented and lagered. Only available in 330ml bottles.
"Porter style Ale. Chocolate and beer! Are we Mad? We’d rather say passionate. We marry the soothing flavour of this complex malt barley grist with a hint of dark chocolate. This is a beer for your more self-indulgent moments. Great for lazy afternoons or long evenings, it is best served chilled with your feet up, watching the sun go down. Like we say – chilled."
"A silky-smooth suppertime beer, created using dark malts and chocolate. Pronounced vanilla notes fuse the chocolate and malts together to give a rich, warming, flavour that also works well as a complement to fruity desserts, summer puddings and autumn berries."

cmacklin (571) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a clear brown with a red hue and a large, frothy, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of chocolate malt, roasted malt and vanilla. Sweet flavour of chocolate malt, roasted malt and vanilla with a slightly dry, bitter coffee finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

WaddlingPlatypus (13) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
330ml bottle. Dark umber colour, pours with an off-white, somewhat foamy head. Aroma is of bitter chocolate, orange, and dark malts. Smooth texture, with an ever-so-slightly dry mouthfeel after the swallow. Could be a little thicker. The flavour is lightly burnt coffee, chocolate, and standard porter malt, but slightly weaker than would be ideal to appreciate the range. In all honesty, some of the flavour enjoyment comes from the aroma upon sipping. A good all-round chocolate porter; acquired for a mere £1.90, this one could be a good standard refreshment for the porter aficionado.

ianwelby (865) - SCOTLAND - JAN 6, 2016
Black beer with a white head and a light smell of chocolate. As you might expect the flavour has a hit of chocolate too along with the malt. Sweet and rich. Nice.

mariuspoenari (410) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2015
Dark brown, semi-opaque and clear, with a beige head with decent retention. It has a smell fresh, with cocoa, vanilla, milk chocolate, roasted malts. The taste follows the same notes. Bitter-sweet finish, very light body (could have done with a bit more thickness) and medium carbonation.
