"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."

Brix (647) - DENMARK - AUG 13, 2007
Tasted 2007-04-17. Fresh bottle, 33cl. Very dark brown colour, almost black. Quickly disappearing head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Taste of chocolate, coffee, yeast and surprisingly little bitterness. A good beer, though a little thin taste wise.

KM (409) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2007
Bottle. Black body. Frothy head. Strong old farm aroma and hints of chocolate and coffee. The initial aroma is however too bad. Watery flavour with some sweetener. Nice long finish with lots of chocolate. (Glenfiddich Warehouse Stockholm, 25.07.07)

thewolf (11640) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice dark red, bordering on black. Head is dense, creamy and off-white. When pouring, it seems a touch light in fullness. Aroma is sweet with some dark chocolate more than actual coffee - but there is some. Quite spritzy mouthfeel for the type, making the beer seem a touch light. Flavour is light again, but there is a long, powerful aftertaste. There is dryness, chocolate and a definite coffee-ness to it. Despite all the lightness to it, the finish result/feel is actually very nice. As it heats up, the flavour comes more to the fore.

bb (7754) - Alamo, California, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Bottle. Dark brown/black beer with ruby highlights and a light tan head. Big coffee aroma with roast. Slightly sweet, big coffee, toffee flavor. Coffee lingers. Medium body. Coffee a bit too much.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2007
Tan head on a dark brown body. A strange idea to flavour a beer with chocolate, and I didn’t like it much. It makes the beer rather bitter and not even good for dessert. I won’t drink this beer again.

sayravai (4700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2007
(Bottled, 6.5% ABV) Very dark reddish brown with a small, tanned head. Not very pleasant aroma of thinner, mash, blood, pigs ears, roasted malt, and some dark chocolate. Later on it feels like burned chocolate porridge. Mild, slightly sweet chocolate flavor with burned maltiness, and a stronger, bittersweet chocolatiness (not very natural, though) in the finish. Light to medium-bodied, low-carbonated and slicky palate. A thin, strange-smelling and artificial brew. No thanks!

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle. Dark allmost black colour with a weak head. Light mild chocolate aroma with hints of dry maltness. Weak chocolate flavour with a sweetness and a little fruity finish.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 28, 2007
Dark red-brownish colored, vanishing light brown head. Dark chocolate dominates this sweet aroma, mild alcohol there also. Flavor is even more chocolaty with biting hops, carbonation also comes up. Mild alcohol in drying aftertaste, still dark chocolate lasts.
