evilempire (132) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, - NOV 21, 2008
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

Skinnyviking (7000) - 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.

Ferris (3944) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2014
Cask - Just like chocolate syrup from a bottle. Jet black with a thin beige head. Dark chocolate and some light sweetness, finishing bitter. If you really like chocolate.....

magpieken (49) - - 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 (283) - 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.
