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.

Pours brown with a dense beige head. Aroma is pale chocolate, malt and light coffee. Flavour follows the nose. Dry and light bitter.

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.

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.

Straordinario l’aroma, proprio cacao senza alcun segno di femminea dolcezza burrosa, si beve al posto del dolce e possibilmente riempie di più di esso. Deliziosa, da bere senza fretta, parlando delle imprese di Pirro.

Someone had a lot of fun with this one. Tons of chocolate throughout the brew. Color, aromas, taste. A clean, black brew with a healthy head on it. Cocoa, boxed chocolates, bittersweet chocolate shavings -- all those components are discernable, which is quite a feat. Sweet finish, oily and viscous on the tongue. A unique sweet stout that emphasizes its key ingredient.

On tap at the porterhouse central in Dublin. Strong chocolate truffle taste. Really Nice. Not my favorite chocolate stout but pretty decent and interesting. I recommend
