chriso (7482) - 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 (4000) - 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.

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.

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.

jercraigs (8423) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2009
2009-05-15. Very dark brown-black body with a creamy beige head and lace. Very sweet aroma of hot chocolate, and tootsie roll, touch of Ovaltine? (7+) Flavour is similar - Sweet up front, cocoa/tootsie roll like chocolate, but not so sweet as to be cloying. Light bitterness in the finish. Smooth average plus palate. Pretty decent. On tap at the brewpub.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2009
Tap in the porterhouse, covent garden. Alround rating: Chocolate moose, nitro keg doesnt help it, buit of grassy bittering hop which is slightly out of place in this chocolaty beast.

nimbleprop (5785) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2008
On tap at the Porterhouse on Nassau street in Dublin. Never has a beer delivered more directly on it’s promise than this beer. Pours a translucent, watery black with a soft, creamy white head. Aroma is sweet and chocolaty. Flavor is exactly like putting a well crafted chocolate truffle in your mouth, soft, creamy, slightly grainy, sweet but not overpowering with a touch of bitter cocoa. Soft, easy finish.

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2008
Draft at Temple Bar. Very chocolatty. Somehow this manages to blend seamlessly with the stout base, but it covers any trace of the beer. Like O’boy, only less sweet and milky. It is better than that sounds, but a half pint was enough.

cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 12, 2008
dark beer but not like the black stuff, creamy head, notes of chocolate, burned malt and very milky, sweetness and bitternes in nice balance, good stout, but needs some power, it is like they dont dare, which is a shame.
