2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a beautiful dark brown, bordering on black with a thin but very long-lasting beige head. Aroma is a nice blend of oak, coffee and rich chocolate. Taste is a light burnt bitterness and a strong sugary sweetness. Comparable to a very sugary mocha. There are some redeeming qualities in the chocolate flavour, but it leans a bit more on the chocolate syrup side rather than chocolate malt. Thick and overcarbonated in the mouthfeel, leaves a syrupy chocolate aftertaste. Rests quite heavily on the stomach too, I found. Hugely disappointed with this one, I liked my previous Meantime (IPA) and I generally like chocolate stouts, but this just did not do it for me.

bottle at home. Pours marroon brown, not expected this colour for a porter. The nose holds the middle between cooked patatoes and milk chocolate; weird. Light, watery alike body with mild bitterness, taste is bland and only chocolate malts.

Yeah, its mostly about dark choco with nice vanilla touch, mild and smooth roasted malt presence. Very decent, but simple. Modearate sweet with moderate roasted bitterness in finish.
Lovely beer tho bit too thin

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.

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.
