angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 24, 2009
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

harrisoni (13559) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2007
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."

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

ciaranc (841) - 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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 16, 2006
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.

larsga (6172) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2008
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.)

jercraigs (7691) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2009
2009-05-15. Very dark brown-black body with a creamy beige head and lace. Very sweet aroma of hot chocolate, and tootsie roll, touch of Ovaltine? (7+) Flavour is similar - Sweet up front, cocoa/tootsie roll like chocolate, but not so sweet as to be cloying. Light bitterness in the finish. Smooth average plus palate. Pretty decent. On tap at the brewpub.

[2149-20090515] Tap. Rich buttery Lindt chocolate aroma. Clear, very dark red brown body with a long-lasting creamy tan head. Super rich thick chocolate malt flavour finishes abruptly. Full body is a little rough. Good.

Psytron (1297) - 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.
