Draft at Beer Temple. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is awesome but by no means complex, simply massive milk chocolate. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Very nice in small quantities.

On tap at rogue Newport - nice frothy head. Think creamy hot chocolate! Perfect stout to finish the meal with.

Euston Tap. Opaque black - brown beer, little tan head. Palate is silky smooth with nice fine carbonation. Mild minerals and errr yeah - chocolate! Dark chocolate, chocolate gateux cream and chocolate wafers. Creamy dark chocolate! Finishes smooth and silky with a little carbonated nip. Slightly maltesers aftertaste. Pretty bloody good. I bolted this one!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A: Wow, this looks inviting. Pours absolutely jet black with no light peeking through whatsoever. Rocky khaki to light brown head leaving beautiful, elegant lacing on its way down.
S: Dark fruits (plum, blackberry), baker’s chocolate, caramel and toffee, a hint of coffee grinds.
T: Mimics the nose--dark fruits, mostly plum, with a healthily competing dark chocolate kick and a little punch of espresso bitterness that lingers on the finish.
M: Slightly less full-bodied than the appearance and aroma would suggest but nice and smooth.

Delicious. Rich and chocolaty taste as you’d expect, with a bitterness and coffee on the finish.

On draft at The Hop. Loads of chocolate flavor in this beer - they weren’t kidding about that! A little brandy too. Nice!

22, in the annoying super-bright-red bottle. Pours buh-lack with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Lots of drippy lace. Enormous dark chocolate and cocoa nose, heavy and sweet and forward. Intense. Creamy thick body with sluggish carb. Dark chocolate and cocoa reverberate all over the mid palate. Intense and powerful, but short of being problematically cloying, as long as you’re in the mood for something this big and intense. Not as goopy or sticky or syrupy sweet as Choklat, for sure.
