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."

Bu en bouteille de 33cl, couleur noire intense et une jolie mousse blanche, cette bière a surtout le goût chocolat qui ressort; s’en est presque écoeurant tellement c’est fort, surtout que la fin de bouche semble complexe mais le goût chocolat bouffe tout... dommage

Bottle from Waitrose in Buxton. Dark with only a head around the glass rim. Chocolate is more than evident, perhaps mostly in its aftertaste but this is more than pleasant in the palate, although there’s plenty of nose too.

A really nice after dinner beer. Not to one to drink all night but perfectly pleasant for a change.

33cl. 6,5 abv. Clear beige head with smoked nuts and high percentage chocolate aromas. Dark black body. Smoky taste easily balanced by treating it with dark chocolate. Predominance of the smoke and malts compared to the lacking hops or bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The aroma reminds me of dark chocolate and port wine. Taste is very chocolately with hints of coffee and a pronounced bitterness at the end. The only drawback is the strong carbonation. For my taste it could be less fizzy to underline the chocolate taste.

Leckeres Porter, ein wenig wässrig in der Mitte und recht trocken. Die Aromen nach Nüsse, Schokolade und Kaffee sind aber nicht von schlechten Eltern...

urobach (23) - Szczecin, POLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Dark and clear, poor beige head. Tastes of dark chocolate, cocoa, raisins and roasted malts. Very thin for baltic porter. Too light body. Pretty good beer even though.

mgajdaczewa (429) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 6, 2014
Jako miłośnik porterów, w których czuć więcej smaków niż alkoholowy strzał nie mogę nie być usatysfakcjonowanym tym piwem. Pyszna czekolada, ale Meantime stać na więcej!

spacecube (758) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 3, 2014
330ml botte, pours black with foamy head which leaves a lacing. Dark chocolate and barley malts give a decent first impression, some floral notes coming through with vanilla, but not much, finish is long, dry and earthy. Palate is light. Carbonation average. pretty good.

Vinx (56) - ITALY - FEB 17, 2014
It pours a big beige head which persists not so long; very nice bouquet of dark chocolate, vanilla, mature fruit, banana, hints of spices. It’s taste is mellow and less roasty than i expected. Pleasant aftertaste of choco and coffee. Maybe I’d prefer it a little bit less chocolatey, but it’s though a very good beer.
