3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with ruby edging and a thin tan head. Smells exactly like Cadbury’s Dairy Milk chocolate, with a wee hint of dark malt. Is incredibly rich in flavour, it is all milk chocolate - like I’m eating a block of it. It has quite a watery finish and a bit of fizziness too which really work to cleanse the palate and make you want to go back for more. Couldn’t get any closer to liquid chocolate if you tried - it even hides any hint of its 6.5% ABV.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 bottle from Csakajósör. Black body, dark brown head, thick. Wonderful aroma, chocolate and berries. Foam tastes dark chocolate, rather bitter. Beer is very smooth, silky. Tastes chocolate plus some red fruites. Complex, exciting. Then maybe losing some complexity in the end, becoming a bit sirupy. Aftertaste rather neutral, dark chocolate with a hint of bitterness. Overall, a bit on the sweet end, which makes it a dessert beer, sort of. Yet, very harmonic stuff, a geed brew after all.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle / Waitrose / Greenwich / £1.90. It makes a nice change to get a strong chocolate aroma of a chocolate stout/porter. It pours a very dark caramel with very little to no head. The taste is all lovely malt chocolate and dark chocolate. I don’t get any artificial flavour nor an alcohol hit for a 6.5% beer. Very nice to find a beer that claims to contain chocolate and be able to taste it. Cracking beer especially for less than 2 squids

Bottle, 330ml. A black colour with a small brown head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and malt, very strong and rich. Flavour of sweet chocolate, a little malt. A slightly bitter cocoa finish. Very drinkable but starts to get sickly quite quickly.

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.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
