4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz Bottle. The pour was a very dark muddy brown almost black with an average (1-2 finger) medium brown rocky head that receded steadily, down to a thin film with a large collar and had fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was loaded with chocolate right up front along with some burnt malts, a light resin hop and a doughy yeast and had notes of coffee, dark chocolate and a mild nutty presence.
Taste was bitter sweet and malty with a note of dark chocolate in the beginning, and then became moderately bitter with a bold dose of coffee and yes more bitter chocolate towards the finish. The flavor hung around for quite a long time after the swallow, with a very bitter mocha coffee taste left lying on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was full in body with a dry, oily texture and a nice soft carbonation.
Overall and simply put, this brew is a Chocoholics dream and I am hooked...

Poured from bottle. Aroma of chocolate with hint of espresso. Pours black with tan head. Taste is lightly sweet at first with a medium bitter finish. Full bodied with thick texture. An amazing chocolate and beer combination.

Big bottle into fancy stout glass. Black w good tan head. Aroma of chocolate with hints of vanilla and oak. Robust taste - distinctive bitter chocolate. Smooth almost creamy but w some rougher bitterness coming through. Good solid stout.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A rich and beautiful light brown persistent foam fills the top of this very fragrant stout. The fragrance is characterized by good dark chocolate (Belgian?).
The dark chocolate flavor is pronounced in this stout, it is slightly sweet and very little bitter. The taste is replaced by a short-term lightly hopped taste and it also contains some hints of coffee. The stout is not as sweet as I expected. The finish is marked by good quality chocolate mixed with a moderate amount of coffee.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
650ml bottle into tumbler. Totally totally black beer with foamy tan head. Cinnamon chocolate nose, some cloves, some liquorice. Surprisingly light and fizzy in the mouth. Finish is milk chocolate and cocoa. Lingering finish becomes quite bitter. Great beer but I didn’t expect it to be so quaffable. So...a 6.3% Sweet Stout that is easy drinking and not very sweet, alright!

I expected more sweety notes. A lot of chocolate, nice sweet chocolate aroma, But only in aroma. Nice big brown-dark head. It has strange taste, like choco-soap. Its hard, a little bit heavy and boozy. Good one but I prefer Aphrodisiac from Dieu du Ciel

0,66l fles gedeeld met bryanvdv. Zwart met een bruine kraag. Smaak en geur doordrenkt met chocoladé maar ook bourbon noot. Niet verkeerd, mist echter wat in de boddy.

Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of sweet malt and chocolate. Taste the same with some smokeyness. Decent lacing in the glass. Light to medium mouth feel but very smooth. Nice depth of flavors.

Bomber into tulip glass. Pours a dark brown with a large beige head. Leaves plenty of lacing. Chocolate, and lots of it! Milk chocolate and cocoa, hazelnut, roasted malts, oats, coffee, caramel. Definitely a good amount of hops cutting through as well. Full bodied, thick and chewy texture, moderate carbonation. An all around excellent sweet stout!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
BOTTLE 22 OZ. Almost black with a beige head. Cheap chocolate flavourings. Taste is light sweet, fake chocolate, moderately bitter finish with notes of bitter mold. Questionable.
