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.

Smell of chocolate, cocoa. Dark brown colour, light brown head. Strong aroma of cocoa, chocolate. Also some licorice to be found. Mildly bitter, sweet. Slightly dry texture. Too strong chocolate flavour.

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.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Porterhouse Central. Big black brown pour, high nitro stout head. Gorgeous milk chocolate nose. Massive chocolate flavour too. Light body, light on the palette. Bit of bitterness in the finish. Mellows as you drink it. Very different, very nice.

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.
