ChrisPants (317) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Pours rich brown, dark mahogany and walnut head with tiny bubbles. Rich Nestle Quik chocolate drink aroma. Flavor is the same, with very tiny hop nose at the end of the swallow. Moutheel is creamyand rich, but not heavy--what I find to be the perfect velvet body for this style. I hope to enjoy this again.

mmahut (1782) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours in black body with coffee like creamy brown head. Aroma has strong aroma character, pretty exact, probably extract. Taste has strong roasty flavors upfront, light bitterness at the end. Body is full, creamy, medium carbonation.

Gangstergafje (489) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2016
The beer has a beautiful dark appearance. The color of the beer is a nice dark brown, with a slightly ruby red glow. The beer pours a nice soft creamy foam, with a yellowish color. The bulk of the foam collapses, to leave almost nothing behind. The smell is very nice. There is a good sweet chocolate aroma, combined with some nice roasted aromas. It reminds me of the Porterhouse Chocolate Truffle Stout. All those nice dark bitter tones, balanced out by the sweetness of the chocolate, delicious. There are also some nice fresh hop tones in the smell. The taste of the beer is slightly less. There is less of the chocolate deliciousness. There are some nice roasty bitter tones and a fresh fruity hop flavor. The aftertaste is nice and bitter. All in all, a delicious stout, like it should be. A good preparation for my trip to Dublin

vipinvelp (3481) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2016
Dark black, light brown lasting lacing foam head. Stron chocolate aroma, getting better when beer gets warmer. Bitter chocolate taste, great beer. (Sofia 201604)

Bottle shared at hopaholic. Black colour with a small fast disappearing black head. Nose of cocoa and some light rhum in the background. Taste is chocolate wih some roasted malts. Nice beer, but hoped for a fuller mouthfeel.

Fisler (333) - Bamberg, GERMANY - MAR 10, 2016
Ein Stout kann im Glas kaum was verkehrt machen. Schön hier: Der leicht braune Schaum, erinnert gleich an Luftschokolade. Und die riecht man auch, superlecker. Reingebissen, klar, ein Stout, und mit dem Abgang kommt die Schoki, leckerleckerlecker, etwas bitter, dann süß, megasüffig. Gigantisches Dessert-Bier!

tandembrauer (1001) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 29, 2016
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours black with brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, burnt wood, coffee. Taste is a mixture of sweetness (lactose?) and roasted bitterness. Smooth mouth feel.

M_Sack (570) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Deep black, thin mocha coloured head, medium lacing. Massive Milk chocolate aromas. Great interplay between chocolate, bitter hops, oats and roasted malts which provide a smoky finish. Minimal carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Magnificent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mediocre foam. Chocolate, duh. Espresso. Watery. Slightly roasted. Meh. Choco-too-late-not-for-the-second-round.
