On tap at Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Enormously choc velvet. I mean itís like drinking a Belgian choc truffle chocolate. Question is, is it any good? Well there are 2 answers. The choc loving part of me says, "Yes, this is the most intense choc beer Iíve ever had and I love it." The beer purest would say "Itís a bit thin and grainy and itís a bit crude after half a pint and you wouldnít want much more."

Oakes (11812) - 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.

jercraigs (7348) - 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.

chriso (7344) - 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 didnít feel too well balanced. But, as a chocolate bomb, it is still quite appealing.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2007
A Mes rate: Nitrotap @ youíll never guess where. Saw Man U beat Everton 4-2 while supping this. Sure my mood has influenced my rating slighty but this was excellent. Black, almost opaque with a solid off white creamy head. Coffee, malt and rich dark chocolate aroma. Flavour is similar to the nose and wonderfully tangy and rich. Certain I could not drink more than the half I had but I enjoyed every sip.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2008
Medium creamy shiny deep offwhite everlasting head. Excellent cling. Deep dark red-brown translucent body. Intense perfumy milky dark chocolate aroma with vanilla notes. Dry-and-sweet vanilla and chocolate pudding taste with a dry, powdery feel to it. Harmonic and balanced. Long aftertaste, very distinct and clear. Not very complex, but still has more than enough to interest. Very nice, but definitely not a session beer. (0.2l draft, Porterhouse Temple Bar, Dublin.)

KnutAlbert (5763) - 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 Oíboy, only less sweet and milky. It is better than that sounds, but a half pint was enough.

DonMagi (5596) - 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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 16, 2006
Nitro Tap@The Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London. Smells really nice. caramel, vanilla, chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Palate is smooth, perhaps too smooth, thanks to the nitro, which was the only thing i didnít like about this beer. Creamy mouthfeel, and as aarleks notes, a liquerish like quality, like Baileys or something. Some subtle roastyness in the finish. Really tasty, but would have been better if it was out of a regular keg (or even cask!!!), as the nitro killed it a little bit. Otherwise, no complaints, i had fun drinking a couple of pints of this.

[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.
