3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Intense, heady chocolate nose. Very rich and full of cocoa. Very dark, full-bodied stout with a quickly-dissipating head. Flavour is great - rich, dark, perhaps a little too chocolatey - like a decent stout with a couple of teaspoons of Lindt 70% Cocoa dissolved in it. Lingers well with some depth, but again, a bit too much on the chocalate. All in all, though, a nice drop.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black color; creamy head. Aroma of chocolate, like opening a box of chocolates (i.e. with a very ligth vanilla). Medium body structure, quite soft in the beginning but too much metallic at the end; good mix of malt and roasted malt; the taste doesn’t really show much chocolate. Quite strong bitterness. Pleasant.

Where do I start? The aroma is absolutely divine! It smells like actual cocoa beans - bittersweet. I keep swishing it ’round the glass and taking another sniff. Aroma is definitely the best part of this beer! Bit of a nutty, roasty scent in there too. The flavour is almost too bitter. Very coffee with dark chocolate in the finish. Overall, a very nice drinkable novelty beer. It kicks the ass of Floris Chocolate. They’re not even in the same league! Delicious!

Bottle. Black colour with a medium baige head. Sweet chocolate, vanilla aroma and a sweet, light roasted, chocolate taste. Medium body with a sweet finish. I think this would have been better with dark bitter chocolate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Dark ruby with dissipating beige head. Aroma is predominantly chocolate - vanilla, powdered hot chocolate drink, and a bit of those really dark 70% chocolate bars from Lindt. Difficult to get past the chocolate, but there may be a little roasted barley here, some plummy fruit. Thinnish mouthfeel with a bitter chocolate finish. Better than I expected.
