"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."

Alphadelic (1974) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2009
A thick an creamy aroma with hints of slightly bitter dark chocolate roast hidden in it. Plenty of chocolate in the mouth here too with a slightly herbal eucalyptus hidden very deep beneath. Sweet and milky with hints of burnt maltiness and loads of vanilla.

Bottle at Hashigo Zake. Pours dark ruby, thin tan head.
Strong chocolate aroma, smells like a melting block of milk chocolate.
Decadent chocolate flavour, backed by a hint of coffee. Just decadant and full bodied, almost like drinking a block of chocolate.
What more can I say? Amazing.
