Beershine (5201) - 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.

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

nimbleprop (4536) - 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.

patrick767 (3524) - 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.

zvikar (3370) - 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.

garthicus (2652) - 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.

culchiem (2405) - 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.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Erzengel (2327) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
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
