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."

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2006
A very dark brown beer with a thick dark brown head. The aroma is sweet with nice notes of chocolate with lots of cocoa in it. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of good dark chocolate combined with drying notes of ground cocoa beans, and notes of hard roasted malt giving hints of coffee towards the end. The end is dry and bitter and the notes of chocolate lingers for a long time. If You like chocolate beers, this is right up there with the best.

omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2004
Bottled. Dark brown, dense head. Rich cocoa aroma. Surprisingly dry with short muthfeel. Dark chocolate dominates, but there are some late bitterness to balance it. A good dessert beer.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Remarkable dark porter. Good carbonation with a clear taste of chocolate. That’s chocolate and not chocolatey malt! Not sweet, not bitter but very nice.

fiulijn (14380) - 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.
