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."

I tried this beer on June 17, 2010 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a black colour with a thin tan ring. The aroma was dark chocolate, cocoa, and a faint hint of hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation, and a smooth feel. The flavour was scrumptious with a nice velvety slightly chocolate taste in every mouthfeel, and a nice bitter finish.

330ml bottle. pours an opaque black and is very brown when you’re actually pouring. thick creamy head that stays with a thin layer for ages. aroma is indeed of chocolate. quite a lot of coffee too i thought. taste is great. really nice and thick. not oily. not too carbonated. just lots of chocolate and rather bitter. love it.

Pours a near pitch black with a tan head. Aroma features rich Belgian chocolate, spicy resiny hops and hints of berry fruit. On the palate there is mouth filling chocolate, sweet rich confected malt, and a touch of warming alcohol. Lovely beer!

Goozey (3) - PoultonLancashire, - MAY 4, 2013 does not count
Dark, dusky porter ale with rich coffee and chocolate undertones. Distinctive taste that lays nicely on the pallet. Strength is above average but this doesn’t seem to come through when drinking. Nice now and then for a change!
