COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Occasional;
Born from a conversation between a chocolatier, Lee from Pure Origin Chocolate and ourselves we embarked on creating a chocolate stout. After much enjoyable sampling we decided on a bold and complex 85% cacoa single origin Colombian chocolate which provides a lovely dry balanced bitterness and a long espresso finish, we think it works rather well.

minutemat (1264) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Cask @ Manchester Beer & Cider Festival Jan 14. Big choccy nose but sadly doesn’t continue as much into the taste, with a weak blend of roasted malts and dusty cocoa. Disappointing.

AshtonMcCobb (2308) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2014
On tap at the Red Squirrel. Appearance - not quite black but definitely opaque. Nose - dark chocolate. Almost going into a raisin thing. Taste - chocolate raisins and a bih tobacco note. Lovely Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - just about beer of the day. But one more to try.

jmgreenuk (4002) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is weak roast with a hint of chocolate. The flavour is medium bodied with a watery sweet hop, slightly medicinal palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and a short bitter finish, If i’m honest, I think this may have been infected. It wasn’t anywhere near what I expected.
