A Mes rate:
Nitrotap @ youíll 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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 iíve 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.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 On tap at the porterhouse central in Dublin. Strong chocolate truffle taste no coffee. Really Nice. Interesting and different from other chocolate stout. A little dry at the end. I recommend

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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

Draught. Pours pitch black with a dense foamy white lasting head. Aroma is all chocolate, like a chocolate milkshake. Taste is of milk chocolate, vanilla. Sweet but not overpowering. Really enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Porterhouse, Covent Garden. Enormously choc velvet. I mean itís like drinking a Belgian choc truffle chocolate. Question is, is it any good? Well there are 2 answers. The choc loving part of me says, "Yes, this is the most intense choc beer Iíve ever had and I love it." The beer purest would say "Itís a bit thin and grainy and itís a bit crude after half a pint and you wouldnít want much more."

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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nitro Tap@The Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London. Smells really nice. caramel, vanilla, chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Palate is smooth, perhaps too smooth, thanks to the nitro, which was the only thing i didnít like about this beer. Creamy mouthfeel, and as aarleks notes, a liquerish like quality, like Baileys or something. Some subtle roastyness in the finish. Really tasty, but would have been better if it was out of a regular keg (or even cask!!!), as the nitro killed it a little bit. Otherwise, no complaints, i had fun drinking a couple of pints of this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium creamy shiny deep offwhite everlasting head. Excellent cling. Deep dark red-brown translucent body. Intense perfumy milky dark chocolate aroma with vanilla notes. Dry-and-sweet vanilla and chocolate pudding taste with a dry, powdery feel to it. Harmonic and balanced. Long aftertaste, very distinct and clear. Not very complex, but still has more than enough to interest. Very nice, but definitely not a session beer. (0.2l draft, Porterhouse Temple Bar, Dublin.)
