Cask@lychgate, wolverhampton. Black with small head. Aroma of cocoa powder. The taste is the best part, feels like I am drinking chocolate with a touch of coffee. Palate is medium to full body. An excellent stout, the best I have had so far.

Beese (2555) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2014
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.

Skinnyviking (7231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2014
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.
