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."

This is a re-rate. My first try at this beer was about two years ago. I found it very much a "chocolate milk", one-dimensional, very sweet, velvety, malty and full of cocoa, with plenty of dark chocolate. I had in a 330 ml bottle, labelled as "Chocolate Porter". Now, I can be more fair, as I notice the sour aroma of strawberries and apples, and a lovely tartness on the flavour, together with the Baltic saltiness. My Easter chocolate!

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, leicht säuerlich, reife Früchte, Kaffee. Geschmack nach geröstetem Malz, Schokolade, Kaffe, dunkle Früchte.

g_georgiou (245) - CYPRUS - APR 6, 2014
Dark brown, almost black body with a beige head. Really strong chocolate cocoa aroma and roasted malt. Taste is sweet with light bitter finish. You can really taste the chocolate here. Nice.

Bottle @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a dark brown colour, off-white small head. Aroma is medium malty with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and soft notes of vanilla, and medium hoppy. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation.

javiercrasher (167) - Granada, SPAIN - MAR 26, 2014
Negra clarita, con un buena capa de espuma de finísima burbuja y retención escasa. Suave aroma a chocolate, nada pronunciado. De cuerpo ligero y bien gasificada. En boca también muy suave, destacando sobre todo la vainilla y un poco de chocolate licoroso. Sedosa y equilibrada, cálida y con un final agradable. No esta mal, pero le falta intensidad tanto en aroma como en sabor, y un poco de cuerpo para poderse disfrutar en los postres.

spkevin (391) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle. Dark pour. Okay head. Chocolate aroma with some malts. A lot of chocolate in the taste. A lot indeed. Some roasted hints in the back. Refreshing. Chocolate again in the aftertaste with some malts and light roasted hints. Chocolate indeed.

Renobob (665) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 24, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl (belle bouteille d’ailleurs). Arômes chocolats ultra présents (peut-être trop même ?), peu de corps et une finale plutôt sèche. Moyen quoi.

freretoc (731) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 23, 2014
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

wimpyjoe (4152) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
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.
