cask at Harlequin, Sheffield brewed with chocolate, chocolate syrup and chocolate malt. Absolutely superb, smooth, roasty stout. almost black with slight ruby edge, pale long lasting head, massive chocolate aroma, leading to smooth dark chocolate taste while still retaining roasted barley flavour. aftertaste is pure chocolate

magpieken (47) - - AUG 10, 2014
500ml bottle. BB 08/17. Pours a very deep brown with a low brownish head which reduced to a collar, leaving a trace of lacing. Aroma of cocoa powder, roasted malt, some espresso and incense. Some light sweetness in a light to medium body is followed by the lingering roasted bitterness.

Fluxing (275) - POLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana zostawia gruba warstwe i mocno oblepia szklo. W aromacie bardzo intensywna czekolada, lekka kawa, karmel, migdaly, lekko ziolowy i owocowy chmiel. W smaku wytrawne, gladkie, lekko kwasne, intensywnie palone, lekko mleczne. Goryczka niska, ziolowa, lekko lodygowa i owocowa. Wysycenie niskie, ledwie wyczuwalne.

hawthorne00 (2397) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle, 10C. Black with a modest beige head. Aroma of chocolate, brioche, spices. On the light side of medium bodied, lowish carbonation. Not all that sweet, certainly dominated by chocolate, really set off nicely with a spiced and slightly astringent bitter finish.
