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."

erickok (4020) - Tours (and Paris), - NOV 17, 2012
Very nice bottle design. Pours a darl brown body with frothy yet stable beige head. Lots of toffee, rum raisins, xwhite chocolate and clean yeast. A somewhat thin but fragrent and nice sweet aroma. Taste is similar but also has a herbal hint that annoys me a bit. Light bitter, longish aftertaste. Not the thick chocolatey experience I was expecting, but that just proofs my expectations were wrong - nothing wrong with this beer. Fairly drinkable, toffee beer. Bit expensive though. (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

Bottle at home. Very dark brown with smal beige head. Toast, roasted grains, almonds, light cocoa. Some tart berries and light grass. Medium bodied with slight watery feel. Roasted bitter and slight tartness, sweetness is very light. Doesn’t feel like 6.5% at all.

Towey1989 (257) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2015 Bottle. A murky, deep brown to purple colour with a thin and none lasting mocha head. Aroma of dark chocolate, cocoa, stewed fruits and roasted malts. Taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate, a sweet prune, raisin and sour fruit pudding flavours and a warming alcohol flavour. Medium bodied and a sticky texture. A bittersweet, burnt finish. Not a fan of this, couldn’t finish it.

Cimbasso (328) - - FEB 7, 2015
Sampled from a 33cl bottle from Waitrose. Pours a dark brown, almost black colour. Roasted hop flavours and plentiful taste of smooth chocolate, with hints of vanilla . Rich and extremely rounded flavours. Not particularly bitter, but very pleasant to drink.

milo91hd (149) - Lecce, ITALY - DEC 28, 2014
Bottiglia 33 CL. Colore nero con riflessi rossastri, schiuma colore beige fine e poco persistente, al naso si sente cioccolato, caffè e malto tostato, al palato è molto dolce e il cioccolato si fa davvero sentire bene, solo nel finale si sente una nota amara mediamente persistente. Un ottima porter da abbinare con dolci al cioccolato

tricksta_p (1591) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2014
Aroma of malt, dark chocolate, cocoa, some coffee. Flavour is medium sweet with a moderate bittersweet finish. Okay chocolate Porter, could be a bit thicker and more aromatic though.

Zlotta (190) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2014
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr in Bonn. Clear, dark reddish-brown to almost black with foamy, stable, tan head. Weak aroma of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts and coffee. Some vinous notes in the end. Sweetish, malty, heavy taste of dark chocolate and cocoa with hints of coffee. Slightly bitter finish. Very nice! Full-bodied, creamy texture, no carbonation. Very good beer. I could drink much more than just this small bottle.
