3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on tap @Mr Foleys, Leeds.
Pours totally black, with a nice brownish head.
Aroma is faint, but having a pleasant sweet chocolate note.
Taste has lots of vanilla&chocolate, not so much of roasted tones and a bit tart in the end.
Aftertaste is nice, solid chocolate tones with a proper bitterness.
Proves its name.

From 500ml bottle. Pours dark, almost black. No head. Strong chocolate aroma. Taste is sweet with chocolate malts. Lives up to its name! Slight bitter aftertaste due the addition of Fuggle hops.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Solid black with medium sand tan foam. Aromas of sweet of black chocolate, quality chocolate truffles and cocoa powder. Palate, medium to full body with smooth sily texture leaving smooth lasting finish of chocolate. Taste ultra heavy on reall black chocolate and cocoa powder. Rather strong and bitter chocolaty taste which lasts, lable did not lie! Overall, most chocolaty beer I had so far, do recomend!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at GBBF 16, the champion beer no less. Deep black colour, thick long lasting white foam. Certainly delivers on the promise of chocolate, quite a silky heavy chocolatey feel, a bit darker than milk chocolate but equally not the 80% stuff either. It is nice no doubt, but also one of those slightly gimmicky beverages that tastes great for one sip but by the end of my glass I was kind of glad I didn’t have a whole pint to get through.

Bottle. Black body with a thin beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of ash, chocolate, cocoa powder and burnt toast. Flavour of chocolate, herbs, plum and Coco Pops. Thin to medium body with a smooth mouthfeel. Light fizz. Lives up to the name. I’d like to try this on cask.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A deep brown colour with a foamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, a little vanilla and subtle dark fruits. Taste of chocolate, caramel, some roasted malts, a little vanilla and subtle dark fruits. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A sweet, slightly roasted, chocolatey finish. Very chocolatey and can taste genuine chocolate ingredients but for me, it’s far too sweet and with only a subtle roasted bitterness in it. Ok.
