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."

BlackHaddock (3185) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
330ml Bottle: badged as ’Chocolate Porter’ and at 6.5% ABV, this is the same beer: poured into a Westvleteren chalice on 5th Nov 2013. Lovely red hue to the dark body, sadly the tan coloured head soon fell away to a wispy covering. The nose was surprise, surprise, fairly chocolatey in nature, rich, dark chocolate to be exact. Taste wise it was also chocolate led in flavour, some coffee notes too: as it warmed a little some sweet vanilla hints began to arrive. Medium bodied for a Porter and not at all creamy, although it was fairly smooth in the mouth. Not as powerful or flavoursome as I expected: not bad, but no world beater.

Philym (717) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2013
Appearance: Dark ruby/brown with 2 finger thick ivory head. Aroma: Chocolate, toast and grassy. Taste: Medium sweetness and bitterness, low/medium sourness and slight saltiness. Palate: Thick rough texture, light body, low carbonation, and slightly astringent. Fairly abrupt chocolate/toast/roast malt finish with bitterness increasing after the initial sweetness. Comments: Very good and nice glass lace.

Bottle poured into tulip glass. Black-brown with a white-tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and chocolate, with subtle fruit notes. Taste is dark chocolate, quite dry and bitter. Mouthfeel is a little oily, finish is bitter. After rating, tried the rest of the bottle with chocolate truffles - lovely pair!
