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.

berkshirejohn (5395) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2015
50cl bottle from Marks & Spencer, Camberley. A glossy peat colour with a billowing beige head; dry, cooking chocolate aroma; deep dry chocolate taste, with a milky body and a balancing bitterness from some very well roasted malts (that is, they’ve been toasted to cinders). Unfortunately the burnt notes leave an unpleasant aftertaste, otherwise a rather good chocolatey stout.

Triple chocoholic in cask at GBBF 2015. It has a lovely chocolate aroma on a deep black body. The taste is straight up chocolate goodness. Yum. 3.8

Unsurprisingly dark chocolate dominates could quite easily be too sweet and sickly but it's balanced with the roast and bitter finish ok novelty stout.

tombyars (1507) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival on the 23rd April 2015. Cask, handpump dispense. Black ruby in colour with a thin buff head. Strong chocolate note in the malty aroma. Thin oily mouthfeel and poor lacing. Dark malt complex gives a smooth chocolate McVities biscuit base with notes of dry roast grain coming through. There is a vague suggestion of a light hop prickle in the aftertaste which fades fast from the mouth. The malty finish is smooth and lactose sweet with strong notes of Aero chocolate becoming drier in the palate. This is a decent session stout but maybe too sweet for some.

Aniela (4195) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2015
From my backlogg: Sample at Great British Beer Festival 2014. Black beer with almost no head. Chocolate, licorice vanilla aroma. Chocolate, vanilla flavour with maybe some caramell hints.

jamaty (1541) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Muy oscura, casi negra, ligeramente rojiza en los bordes. Aroma de malta tostada y mucho, mucho chocolate. En boca textura no demasiado cremosa, pero muy suave y con buena carbonatación. Sabor a chocolate, negro, con leche. También frutos secos. Seco final de chocolate. Muy interesante.

[International Beer Festival, Burton-on-Trent, 2015] - Saltaire Brewery Triple Chocoholic, 4.8% (Flasche), dieses Bier hatte ich schon mehrfach vom Fass, aber noch nie aus der Flasche. Fast schwarz mit kräftiger, beigebrauner Krone. Im Aroma schon dreifach schokoladig, mit einer leichten floralen Note dazu. Kaffee und dunkle Schokolade gleichberechtigt im Antrunk. Kohlensäure mittel. Zur Mitte dominieren die Kaffeenoten, anders als vom Fass. Im Abgang dann aber deutlich Bitterschokolade, Nachhall deutlicher espressoartig mit gebrannten Malz, trocken, bitter anhaltend. Aus der Flasche auch sehr gut, aber doch anders. Vom Fass einfach schokoholiger.

skortila (4914) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 18, 2015
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.
