"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."

Chocolate and caramel aroma. Dark brown with thick beige head. Sweet taste with chocolate prominent balanced by nice toasted malt bitterness. Palate thinner than I expected.

gEUS (1583) - 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.

Vells (1140) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - APR 13, 2015
Yeah, its mostly about dark choco with nice vanilla touch, mild and smooth roasted malt presence. Very decent, but simple. Modearate sweet with moderate roasted bitterness in finish. Lovely beer tho bit too thin

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 (962) - 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.

Cimbasso (486) - - FEB 7, 2015
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.
