LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 16, 2008
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.

jefcon (1382) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 24, 2006
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.

Psytron (1309) - Turku, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2014
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.

ciaranc (851) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 24, 2014
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.

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

cellar (508) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 12, 2008
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.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2006
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 (329) - 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.
