Mishnok (110) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016
From 500ml bottle. Pours dark, almost black. No head. Strong chocolate aroma. Taste is sweet with chocolate malts. Lives up to its name! Slight bitter aftertaste due the addition of Fuggle hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lokis333 (409) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - SEP 9, 2016
Solid black with medium sand tan foam. Aromas of sweet of black chocolate, quality chocolate truffles and cocoa powder. Palate, medium to full body with smooth sily texture leaving smooth lasting finish of chocolate. Taste ultra heavy on reall black chocolate and cocoa powder. Rather strong and bitter chocolaty taste which lasts, lable did not lie! Overall, most chocolaty beer I had so far, do recomend!

JorgeLee (1803) - 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 didn’t have a whole pint to get through.

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. I’d like to try this on cask.

Towey1989 (1919) - 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, it’s far too sweet and with only a subtle roasted bitterness in it. Ok.

AshtonMcCobb (5401) - 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.
