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."

johninmelb (1126) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2006
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.

fiulijn (14386) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2006
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.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2006
Murky dark brown colour with a small light brown head. Sweet malty aroma with chocolate and vanilla notes. Light roasted malty flavor with a faint coffee bitterness and a chocolate sweet finish.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2006
a sim rate: (33cl bottle from Sainsburys) 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!

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2005
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.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2005
Ruby brown, small bubbly head. Strong aroma of chocolate, vanilla amd caramel. Toasted flavour of dark chocolate and caramel, some subtle tones of vanilla and cocoa powder. Quite thin body. Bitter aftertaste of chocolate and cocoa.

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2005
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.
