1 year bottle pours dense black with fizzy tan head. Nice aroma of chocolate and a caramel nuttiness with a roasted grainy coffee tone, almost like a coffee snickers bar. The flavor is rich roasted grains, some oats in the mix with a hearty chocolate flavor. There is a balancing bittering semi sweet chocolate earthy backbone giving some overall dryness. Lower carbonation makes drinking it beyond easy, especially when cooler. Pleasant finish with roasted coffee chocolatiness and a small touch of berry fruits. Rally solid brew.

Bottle from Utobeer, Borough Market. Black pour with a light tan head. Fierce chocolate nose, chocolate ice cream and milk chocolate. Flavours of milk chocolate, black treacle and lots and lots more chocolate. Very smooth. Caresses the tongue. Gives you a nice warm hug. Very nice indeed.

750ml bottle from Imbibe Wine. Nose is chocolate, a light floral, and a slight vanilla hint. Black with a big cinnamon tan head. Flavor is bitter (I believe the 72 IBU), chocolate, and caramel. Fairly smooth and chcolatey.

Fantastic nose. Wasn’t sure if I should drink it or snort it it smelt that good. Chocolate obviously evident in spades as it should be, and it dry on the palate. A good example of a choco stout.
