dark beer but not like the black stuff, creamy head, notes of chocolate, burned malt and very milky, sweetness and bitternes in nice balance, good stout, but needs some power, it is like they dont dare, which is a shame.

Tap (Nitro), The Porterhouse, Dublin: Deep mahogany with the usual nitro head. Looks pretty good actually. BIG chocolate flavours. Amazing depth of chocolatiness with astonishing length. The nose is like a chocolatier’s workshop (with a roasty stout sitting in the corner). Underneath all this chocolate is a beautifully balanced, mild sweetness with a touch of roastiness and some pleasant liqueur-like alcohol notes. I wonder whether the chocolate would get too much after a few pints, though for a half it’s fine.

KM (307) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2007
Tap. Very nice black body with some beautiful dark red colouring. Creamy head. Fantastic aroma with dark sweet chocolate. Excellent. Amazing flavour of dark sweet chocolate and mocha. Not only does it taste chocolate, it tastes like a very good chocolate. Wonderfully balanced flavour. It is amazing how well this heavy chocolate taste goes together with the rest of the beer. A lasting finish which keeps the best of the flavours intact and ends with a characteristic bitterness. (Porterhouse Dublin, 17.03.07)

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2013
Draught at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a chocolate-brown/black with an inch cream head. Aroma of milk chocolate, sweet coffee and toffee. Very light cocoa bitterness followed by a strong chocolate sweetness. Very sweet finish, smooth, creamy and thick-bodied. An outstanding desert stout, just perfect.

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2010 On tap at the Porterhouse. Made with real chocolate, which gave this stout a very distinct and strong chocolate smell and taste. Both of which were to my liking and were not overpowering. Instead the chocolate taste blended in well. Was also quite smooth. Looked as a stout should look like thick and black with a creamy white head. One of my favorite stouts.

evilempire (132) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2008
scored in Porter House Temple Bar. Delicious, smooth, highly chocolatey brew, slight roastiness comes through towards the end, several pints of this made for a good night

jbean (110) - Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Draught at Porterhouse Dublin, March 2007 (from notes). Black with nice tan head. Chocolate is very noticable in the aroma, and the flavor is the most intense chocolate flavor i’ve ever had in a beer. Not just notes of chocolate, but like drinking a very good dark chocolate. Incredibly creamy, and very well balanced. An excellent stout.

A thick creamy chocolate stout, good chocolate aroma, goes down very well sweet taste with a slight bitter aftertaste. as you get to the end though the bitterness overpowers the chocolate taste making it a bit rough.

Very pronounced chocolate aroma when poured. A lovely smooth stout with a strong sweet chocolate taste on the palate. A great stout that you can drink all day long.

Expected to be too sweet, but pleasantly surprised. Chocolately on the nose, bold but not bitter aftertaste. Almost like an alcoholic "affogato"! Wouldn’t drink it all night, but great for one or two.
