"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."

Rich dark brown colour with a beige head. Smells of roasted coffee, caramel and malted chocolate (think Horlicks). It has an eclectic taste of malt, fruit, chocolate, hops, and coffee. It is both sweet and bitter and leaves a lengthy taste of bitter mocha in your mouth.

koshack (1134) - Gdańsk, POLAND - SEP 8, 2015
Piana drobna, brązowa. Dziurawi się i opada. Kolor mocnej herbaty, klarowne. Dość jasny jak na portera. W aromacie nuty porterowe, trochę ziemiste, czekolada i lekki chmiel. W drugiej nucie wyraźne ziarna kakaowca. Bardziej kakao niż czekolada. Przyjemny, lekki, świeży zapach. W smaku bardzo wyraźna nuta czekoladowa, sporo kakao. Właściwei tłumi wszystko inne. Lekko kwaskowate od ciemnych słodów. Lekkie ale nie wodniste. Dobry angielski porter, chociaż pretenduje do bałtyckiego.

Gaelic (121) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2015
Very nice bottle. Soft bitters with a very clear taste of not so bitter chocolate. First bite is suprising but it ends a bit disappointing in the development of the taste. chocolate, roasty, creamy,

Was really looking forward to this because they had run out at the last beer festival I was at. It's ok but I was expecting more ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33cl bottle shared. Pours dark cola brown with a thick creamy off white head. Aroma is sweet and roasted malts, some caramel, lot of chocolate. Taste is similar, not more than some roastiness and chocolate. Medium body, watery texture, too thin, a little more carbonated. Disappointing.

promontor (102) - HUNGARY - JUN 7, 2015
0.33 bottle from Csakajósör. Black body, dark brown head, thick. Wonderful aroma, chocolate and berries. Foam tastes dark chocolate, rather bitter. Beer is very smooth, silky. Tastes chocolate plus some red fruites. Complex, exciting. Then maybe losing some complexity in the end, becoming a bit sirupy. Aftertaste rather neutral, dark chocolate with a hint of bitterness. Overall, a bit on the sweet end, which makes it a dessert beer, sort of. Yet, very harmonic stuff, a geed brew after all.

Brown colour with minimal head. In aroma chocolate and malts. In taste sweet chocolate and a little bit caramel. Medium to low bitterness and medium sweetness. Very drinkable with a short finish.

Bottle / Waitrose / Greenwich / Ł1.90. It makes a nice change to get a strong chocolate aroma of a chocolate stout/porter. It pours a very dark caramel with very little to no head. The taste is all lovely malt chocolate and dark chocolate. I don’t get any artificial flavour nor an alcohol hit for a 6.5% beer. Very nice to find a beer that claims to contain chocolate and be able to taste it. Cracking beer especially for less than 2 squids
