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.

Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett.
Chocolate and Vanilla on the nose.
Chocolate on the taste initially, closely followed by vanilla. The chocolate in this is far more dark than I’ve had before, and you get a sense that the chocolate is of high quality, and high cocoa solids in percentage! there is also a lovely smokiness and bitterness about it. Would highly recommend it!

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Cask gravity at the Watford Beer Festival 2014. Poured black, with a rocky beige head. Aroma of chocolate syrup, sugar and some fruity notes. Moderately full mouth feel. Cocoa powder and dark malt flavours, very fake and quite dry. Finish was a horrible mix of cheap dark chocolate, super sweet, saccharine, synthetic nastiness. Not nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Low fluffy lasting light brown head. Very dark red brown body. Powerful choccolate aroma, nothing else. That is, however, sufficient for me. Sweet and relatively dry and solid roasted malt choccolate flavor with some bitterness, probably from the choccolate, as it does not seem to originate from the hops. High carbonation, long dry finish.. Very tasty for such a beer with a relatively low alcohol percentage.
