sfhodense (4791) - 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 (12361) - 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.

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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2009
Keg at the Porterhouse, Covent Garden, April 2008. Chestnut colour with a big fluffy head. Surprisingly pale for a stout. Outrageously intense milk chocolate aroma. Rather less intense on the palate but still all chocolate and not a lot else. Rather light, and sweet, mouthfeel. I felt that a beer so dominated by chocolate would have benefited from a fuller, richer body. As it is, it has more of a "chocolate essence" character and didn’t feel too well balanced. But, as a chocolate bomb, it is still quite appealing.

zvikar (3372) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - OCT 2, 2009
From tap at Milan, brown to red with a tan medium head, aroma of alcohol, coffee, roasted nuts and dry fruits, chocolate flavors with some coffee, nuts and bitter finish, medium texture.

PaulsPissed (37) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 26, 2009
A thick creamy chocolate stout, good chocolate aroma, goes down very well sweet taste with a slight bitter aftertaste. as you get to the end though the bitterness overpowers the chocolate taste making it a bit rough.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 On tap at the Porterhouse. Made with real chocolate, which gave this stout a very distinct and strong chocolate smell and taste. Both of which were to my liking and were not overpowering. Instead the chocolate taste blended in well. Was also quite smooth. Looked as a stout should look like thick and black with a creamy white head. One of my favorite stouts.

[2149-20090515] Tap. Rich buttery Lindt chocolate aroma. Clear, very dark red brown body with a long-lasting creamy tan head. Super rich thick chocolate malt flavour finishes abruptly. Full body is a little rough. Good.
