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.

Almost opaque brown beer, no real head. Palate is smooth and a little dry. Low carbonation. Insipid tangy malts. Touch of chocolate and coffee. Neutral finish. Inoffensive but frankly a bit dull.

From bar 3 at NWAF, handpump, half shared with Finn. Deep devil-black body. Headless, dotted spots to the glassware. Smell of cocoa and coffee. Flavour of cold coffee added by a nice roastiness. Bitter liquorice to the finish. Medium bodied. Likable (Manchester, 24.01.2013).

Cask Conditioned air pressure Euston Tap London. A black beer with a little tan coloured head. This is coffee dominated as supposed to chocolate, both in the aroma and mouth. Bitter roast and chocolate makes a sneaky appearance late on. It has good length and is tasty but there is a misnomer thing going on.
