Psytron (1392) - 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.

jefcon (1419) - 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.

nimbleprop (5187) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2008
On tap at the Porterhouse on Nassau street in Dublin. Never has a beer delivered more directly on it’s promise than this beer. Pours a translucent, watery black with a soft, creamy white head. Aroma is sweet and chocolaty. Flavor is exactly like putting a well crafted chocolate truffle in your mouth, soft, creamy, slightly grainy, sweet but not overpowering with a touch of bitter cocoa. Soft, easy finish.

PaulsPissed (37) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 26, 2009
A thick creamy chocolate stout, good chocolate aroma, goes down very well sweet taste with a slight bitter aftertaste. as you get to the end though the bitterness overpowers the chocolate taste making it a bit rough.

patrick767 (3590) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2010
tap - Pours black with a lasting tan head. It has a big milk chocolate aroma. The flavor is sweet and roasty and damn near buried in chocolate. Medium bodied with a lingering, slightly bitter chocolate finish, it works though it could perhaps be a bit more subdued on the chocolate.

sfhodense (4790) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2012
Pours brown with a dense beige head. Aroma is pale chocolate, malt and light coffee. Flavour follows the nose. Dry and light bitter.

culchiem (2619) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2014
Draught. Black with a reddish brown hue. Large creamy head. Aroma is milk chocolate. Flavour is chocolate, light roast on a dry sweet base, some bitterness too. Long smooth finish. Not as sweet as I expected.

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.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2009
Tap in the porterhouse, covent garden. Alround rating: Chocolate moose, nitro keg doesnt help it, buit of grassy bittering hop which is slightly out of place in this chocolaty beast.
