3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

On Tap. Smooth-creamy. Easy to drink and still full flavoured. The truffle is in the mainpart nicely present, harmonises great with the dark roasted body. The aftertaste is smooth, creamy, coffee-malty. Milk chocolate, smooth, slightly roasted.
Great beer! --> 12/13/13/12

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.

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.
