3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very dark, almost black with a slight ruby tinge. A small beige head with tight bubbles. Aroma- lots and lots of milky chocolate, some cocoa, malty. Taste- initial hit of chocolate, some hop bitterness, smooth and creamy, lovely mouthfeel, the chocolate keeps on coming, a dry cocoa powder finish with some lingering bitterness. Very tasty stout.

Wow, such a bittersweet chocolate aroma, not overly sweet at all, the mild bitterness cut through it to make a very good beer.

Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours deep black with a small, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma has chocolate, vanilla, light roasted. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of fat chocolate, vanilla, softly roasted. Very sweet overall, but there is a fine bitterness to balance.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 Lovely colour; dark and rich just like the taste. Persistent head, but one which doesn’t detract from the drinking experience. Chocolaty aroma as expected, smooth on the palate, light carbonation tickles tongue and gums. Eminently drinkable, but maybe a tad too sweet.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5L bottle, BB05,14. Pours very dark brown with ruby highlights. The head is tan and stays, nice lacing. Aroma is very intense chocolate, licorice, malt. Taste: dark chocolate bitter, slightly metallic, some tart. Finish is long dark chocolate bitter. Overall: I really enjoy the chocolate part, but the rest of the beer is just lacking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at Hell Hunt. Dark brown color, good beige head. Mainly just chocolate aroma. Medium-bodied. Chocolate, coalish toasted bitterness in the finish. Chocolate feels much more natural than in their other porter. Could use a bit higher abv.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black with a light tan head. Chocolate on the nose (obviously). Chocolate is lost a little on tasting. Very slight smoke flavour. Not much else. Very light mouth feel, too light.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Disappointing. Smells of very sweet, syrupy, milk chocolate - kind of artificial - with background bitterness. Tastes similarly of syrupy chocolate that ends on a bitter note. Not much beer taste to this. Body is thin and watery. Heard this described as 'chocolate and cough syrup' and it's kind of true.
