"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."

Sampled from a 33cl bottle from Waitrose. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour. Roasted hop flavours and plentiful taste of smooth chocolate, with hints of vanilla . Rich and extremely rounded flavours. Not particularly bitter, but very pleasant to drink.

Bottle at home. Very dark brown with smal beige head. Toast, roasted grains, almonds, light cocoa. Some tart berries and light grass. Medium bodied with slight watery feel. Roasted bitter and slight tartness, sweetness is very light. Doesn’t feel like 6.5% at all.

Towey1989 (607) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Bottle. A murky, deep brown to purple colour with a thin and none lasting mocha head. Aroma of dark chocolate, cocoa, stewed fruits and roasted malts. Taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate, a sweet prune, raisin and sour fruit pudding flavours and a warming alcohol flavour. Medium bodied and a sticky texture. A bittersweet, burnt finish. Not a fan of this, couldn’t finish it.

gEUS (1473) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2015
bottle at home. Pours marroon brown, not expected this colour for a porter. The nose holds the middle between cooked patatoes and milk chocolate; weird. Light, watery alike body with mild bitterness, taste is bland and only chocolate malts.
