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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled. 50cl sample. The aroma has strong milk chocolate, moccha, some vanilla, is creamy. Black coloured beer with a medium, lasting, tan head. The taste is light bitter, bit sweet, has milk chocolate, fudge, moccha. Clean finish. Initially quite some body for such a light beer, but becomes more light and dry in the finish. Easy drinking beer. Awesome.

500ml bottle from BeerRitz. Almost black, reasonable head. Sweet chocolate aroma. Dark scocolate flavour. Chocolatey aftertaste. A bit too chocolatey for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark black with almost a fine tan head. Nose is intense cocoa, milk chocolate and chocolate syrup. Flavor is much the same, milk chocolate, chocolate syrup, a little caramel, a tiny bit of roast, and a slightly sweet, chocolately and roasty bitter finish. Nothing crazy, but definitely lots of chocolate.

A little disappointed. Tasted more coffee than chocolate. Small head when poured from a bottle.

Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 14th January 2015. Sepia-black with thinning off-white/tan foam. Rich and intense milk chocolate, roastiness and creaminess with a satisfying full-mouth chocolate finish. Plenty of body and engaging mouthfeel. Rated as a novelty ale.

Bottle from Stewart Wine Co. 050115. Drinking this beer is like sucking on a bar of bitter dark chocolate. Deep black colour with a power packed chocolate aroma. Bit thin in the mouth with a slightly salty finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500m bottle: BBE of Jul 15, poured at home in Dec 14. Deep black with a full but fairly then tanned head. Aroma is milk chocolate and vanilla, no hops in the nose, at least for me anyway. Fairly sweet taste, with chocolate being the overriding flavour, coffee notes in the mouth too. Smooth, creamy texture, slips down very nicely, ends with a mild bitterness, but this is all about chocolate really, as the labelling intimates.
