KM (327) - 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)

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2007
A Mes rate: Nitrotap @ you’ll never guess where. Saw Man U beat Everton 4-2 while supping this. Sure my mood has influenced my rating slighty but this was excellent. Black, almost opaque with a solid off white creamy head. Coffee, malt and rich dark chocolate aroma. Flavour is similar to the nose and wonderfully tangy and rich. Certain I could not drink more than the half I had but I enjoyed every sip.

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.

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.
