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."

bierkoning (11932) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle. Deep dark brown color. Salt and licorice in the aroma. Roasty, salty flavor. hardly any chocolate, just a hint of dark chocolate, especially in the aftertaste. Powerful stout, maybe a bit thin, but aromatic and full of flavor.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2008
Black w/ fluffy beige head. Burned aroma with liquorice, little chocolate & tar. Flavor has way too much burned malts, homebrew like nasty vegetables. Liqurice and some bitter cocoa in the finish. Very unbalanced, I was expecting some easy-to-drink chocolate pudding, but now it’s an overburned porter.

MiP (14903) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2008
Bottle at ÅBF08. Weak vanilla. Vinous flavour strangely spicy. Reminds me of vanilla, but it is chocolate? Sweetish and not bad. Almost black colour.

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - MAY 30, 2008
Pit black with a creamy but fast vanishing brown head. Full of chocolate, bitter one, with a good malt backbone. Flavour is amazing, reminded me of youth easter’s mornings with mouth full of chocolate. Nice balancing thou chocolate is a bit, how to say, not overwhelming but present and noticeable. The body is thinner than one could expect, perhaps ’cause it is not a stout nor a porter as the appearance would suggest. Amazing lingering bitter end.
