downender (6526) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, - MAY 17, 2013
Bottled. Near black in colour with a slight, off-white head. Big, black coffe and baileys aroma with some dark chocolate sweetness. Flavour had more of the same, with a dry finish. Good.

Garrold (1740) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Bottle. Freebie from Beer Central, Sheffield. Cheers Sean! Murky, dark brown. Thin, lasting, tan head. Glossy, alcohol legs in the glass. Rich chocolate. Quite cakey. Sweet, fruity, and boozy. Heavy on the vanilla. Taste is dry, light bitter, with loads of lip sticking sweetness. Fairly rough, boozy palate. Finishes dry, and light bitter. Starts off great, but tails off a bit.

chimpgibbon (334) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from Stein’s deli, Padstow. Boozy vanilla chocolate. Very sweet roasty tang. No head. High carbonation however. Big vanilla afterglow. Milk chocolate. Too sweet for me.

Bottle at Craig’s. Pours black with no head. Aromas of vanilla and chocolate cake. Taste brings a fruity note, but dominated by chocolate. Slightly high carbonation. Not bad.

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2014
330ml bottle drunk at home, three days before the Best Before date. Starts promisingly enough with a chocolate / vanilla sponge aroma but taste presents a distinct sour vinegar flavour. Clearly infected. Shame as I was looking forward to this.

gunnar (5687) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle from Ales by Mail. Pours very dark brown with a big tanned head, which disappears fast. Very inviting aroma of moisty chocolate cake, prunes and deep rich malts. Smooth and light thick mouthfeel, fluid chocolate, like mr Wonka would have loved it, some weak hops at the light dry finish, super medication for a sweet tooth.
