COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
Ingredients: Water; Organic malted barley; Organic cane sugar; Yeast; Organic hops; Organic cocoa extract; Carbon dioxide
Brewed with well water (the original well, sunk in 1758, is still in use with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground), the gently roasted organic cocoa extract impart a delicious, smooth and creamy character, with inviting deep flavours and a delightful finish - this is a marriage of satisfying stout and luxurious chocolate.

Bottle @mother-in-laws. Pours black with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, milk chocolate rather than dark, quite inviting. Taste is chocolate and more chocolate, fruit cake and more milk chocolate with a slight touch of vanilla. This is very one toned but lovely at the same time, if this had a roasted depth to it it would be better.

Without doubt one of the best beers Iíve ever tasted. I like Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout, this is even better. The only thing I donít like is the price, $78 a case plus tax . Since I live in the backwards state of PA itís only available in cases.

bottle. Chocolate stout - best way to describe is taking a beer and adding hersheys syrup. Not refined

Manslow (1019) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 18, 2015
Butelka 0,55l. Cudowny aromat słodkiej czekolady. Kolor ciemny, nieprzejrzysty, piana średnia bardzo ładnie osiadająca na szkle. Smak czekoladowy już nie tak słodki. Na podniebieniu łagodne, goryczka słaba ale tu nie przeszkadza. Super stout.

AleRider78 (573) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
550ml bottle. Pours a nice big frothy brownish head and has a dark brown appearance. Thick dirty lacing. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and roasted malts. Flavours are quite sweet, light roasted malt, chocolate is very much apparent, hints of vanilla, cacao, earthy hops. Has a lot of sweetness but is well balance with some bitterness. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Great retention.

Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is chocolate cereal with marshmallows, vanilla. Taste is chocolate cereal soda. For fans of chocolate cereal sodas.

gr_pa (343) - siemianowice, POLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Clear brown, small head. Very sweet aroma - lots of cocoa and cane sugar, vanilla. Body is light, itís quite dry, although there are lots of sweet accents. Flavour: cocoa and caramel. Finish: bit bittermess and cocoa.

klaing (264) - Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Dark pour with thick but quickly disappearing head. Difficult to describe. A chocolate dessert with a mild hoppy grassy and dry finish. It shouldn't work but it does. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5%abv. Strong chocolate aroma, black colour and few head. Taste is too sweet, too much, no bitterness at all. Finish is still sweet and full of chocolate. A bit boring but great for chocolate lovers or in a mood for dessert beer.

Listigovers (854) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2015
Smells like banana bread and chocolate covered nuts. Pours black with tan head. Taste is very chocolatey, bitter cocoa, some nuttiness. Body is not as heavy as might be expected. Itís okay, desserty.
