Erzengel (5078) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
On Tap. Smooth-creamy. Easy to drink and still full flavoured. The truffle is in the mainpart nicely present, harmonises great with the dark roasted body. The aftertaste is smooth, creamy, coffee-malty. Milk chocolate, smooth, slightly roasted.
Great beer! --> 12/13/13/12

drk (3) - - MAY 8, 2013 does not count
Expected to be too sweet, but pleasantly surprised. Chocolately on the nose, bold but not bitter aftertaste. Almost like an alcoholic "affogato"! Wouldn’t drink it all night, but great for one or two.

Imaena (2001) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Draught @ Porterhouse. Too sweet for my liking not something I will go back to.

Creedence (286) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Draught at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a chocolate-brown/black with an inch cream head. Aroma of milk chocolate, sweet coffee and toffee. Very light cocoa bitterness followed by a strong chocolate sweetness. Very sweet finish, smooth, creamy and thick-bodied. An outstanding desert stout, just perfect.

Deu (874) - Nantes, FRANCE - JUL 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 On tap at the porterhouse central in Dublin. Strong chocolate truffle taste no coffee. Really Nice. Interesting and different from other chocolate stout. A little dry at the end. I recommend

sfhodense (4790) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2012
Pours brown with a dense beige head. Aroma is pale chocolate, malt and light coffee. Flavour follows the nose. Dry and light bitter.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle from El Nido. Reddish-tinted brown with scattered lacing. Smells like a box of chocolate dusted with cocoa powder, and some of the chocolates are filled. Thin but really drinkable. Balanced. Definitely veers towards the chocolate candy end of the spectrum and chocolate flavorings as opposed to what would be more satisfying chocolate malt but is still nice.

Oakes (13272) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2011
Reddish-accented dark brown colour. Rich chocolate aroma with lots of artificial chocolate syrup. Thin, with fake chocolate character. No balance. Easily the crappiest of the dark beers from Porterhouse.

patrick767 (3721) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2010
tap - Pours black with a lasting tan head. It has a big milk chocolate aroma. The flavor is sweet and roasty and damn near buried in chocolate. Medium bodied with a lingering, slightly bitter chocolate finish, it works though it could perhaps be a bit more subdued on the chocolate.
