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 (3533) - 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)

Kauge (127) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle from Nõmme Comarket in Tallinn (ca € 3,30), August 2014. The label says ’Chocolate Porter’; ABV is the same as here, so I reckon it’s the same thing. Pours very dark brown with a red glare and a big light creamy head that retains quite well and leaves a lot of lacing. Nose is overall sweet with milk chocolate and tart cocoa prominent, also slightly roasty and bitter. Gets maltier as it warms. Tastes chocolaty with strong bitter aspects there too, slight tartness and bitterness also present. Medium body, soft carbonation. Finish is roasty and bitter. Some warmth coming from the alcohol.

mmahut (957) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle, from OP. Black body with ruby glances against the light, low beige head. Aroma has cocoa, chocolate, light dark roasty character. Taste has sweet dark chocolate, light oxidation, cocoa bitterness, well balanced taste. Body is full, medium carbonation. Actually I would say the taste is pretty authentic of real chocolate, nice.

azzie (230) - - AUG 21, 2014
Clear liquid. Looks like black watery coffee. Big beige head. Strong chocolate aroma, taste of chocolate with 45-50% of cocoa. Medium body, light to medium carbonation, medium to strong bitterness, chocolate aftertaste. Good but a bit thin. Could be better.

martinrumsam (524) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Rich chocolate and caramel aroma. Dark brown with thick beige head. Sweet taste with chocolate prominent balanced by nice toasted malt bitterness. Palate thinner than I expected. Some alcohol warmth lingers at back of throat.

Gurthnar (1720) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma has nice rich dark malt character, lots of toffee, chocolate. Clear dark colour. Rather small head, but that may be due to quite low temperature at pour. Tastes lets all the sweetness shine, mainly lots of toffee and chocolate, but has a definite bitterness standing behind the bold flavours. One can even find notes of English hop character in the finish. Rewarding beer, I like it very much.

Aroma: massive milk chocolate, caramel. Appearance: dark, medium beige head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: sweets intensive, massive chocolate again, light toasted malts, average-long finish, medium to heavy body. Overall: nice Baltic Porter, living up to what it says on the label - massive chocolate. Bottle at the Old Brewery, Greenwich.
