snzcujo (282) - - NOV 15, 2012
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. Recommended. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JorgeLee (1741) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
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 didnít have a whole pint to get through.

Iznogud (2400) - CROATIA - APR 30, 2016

jamestulloch (3377) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 7, 2016
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. Iíd like to try this on cask.

Towey1989 (1764) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
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, itís far too sweet and with only a subtle roasted bitterness in it. Ok.

AshtonMcCobb (5170) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 18, 2016
On cask up the White Lady. Appearance - deep brown to black. Fawn head. Nose - a bit of toffee and chocolate coming through. Some ginger bread. Taste - sweet chocolate and toffee. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a finish that could be zippier! Overall - deep flavoured but could be fresher on the finish.

Cask up the white lady. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Strong chocolate aromas. Sweet mocha taste. Slightly artificial chocolate aftertaste, light bitter finish.

jjsint (2267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Cask at the Regal (JDW), Cambridge. Dark brown, very dark. Cloudy tan head. Luscious chocolate aroma. Taste is sweet and malty but thereís a bitter almost sour backbone. Thin body and oddly astringent aftertaste. Surprising but I donít care for this.

theprof (472) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Cask. Pours mahogany dark with tan cream top. Aroma decidedly chocolate and more Cadburys than Lindt. Taste sweet chocolate malt with mild coffee notes and fruity tang. The best stout on the Nottingham stroll this year and in Wetherspoons.
