KnutAlbert (6667) - 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.

DonMagi (5594) - 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 didn’t 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.

Beershine (5219) - 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.

great to finally track this one down! Pours deep ruby Brown with thick grey-beige head. Dry dusty cocoa and red fruit nose. Moderate body, dry, quite tannic, low residual sweetness, bitter dark malt, vegetal hops. Pretty decent but not really worth the wait...

sfhodense (4789) - 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.

patrick767 (3971) - 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.

culchiem (3474) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2014
Draught. Black with a reddish brown hue. Large creamy head. Aroma is milk chocolate. Flavour is chocolate, light roast on a dry sweet base, some bitterness too. Long smooth finish. Not as sweet as I expected.

garthicus (2905) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 29, 2014
This has been on my list of want to try for quite a while, glad to see the PH rolled it out for the festival. Appearance: Brown/Black with a generous creamy off white head. Aroma: A little chocolate/cocoa, roasty too. Flavour: initially sweet, chocolate shavings, a little bitter too with a good amount of roastiness, creamy mouthfeel with a long chocolate finish. Not bad at all.
