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.

klaing (276) - 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

bloodbuzzdean (42) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 9, 2015
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 (874) - 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. It’s okay, desserty.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 Smells of chocolate cola. Sweet cocoa, cream, slight spiciness. An OK desert beer sipper.

Bottled, pours dark with clear copper/brown/caramel highlights and thick , beige head, rather poor retention. Aroma resembles milk chocolate, some vanilla, fudge and those werthers original candies. Its really nice, but maybe too sweet. Some dark malts would be nice perhaps. In taste its all about caramel and sweetness, some very mild bitterness is also present. Well, on the one hand its a very interesting beer, but on the other I would probably throw up of too much sweetnees if I was eating a cake at the same time. Anyway, definitely worth trying.

By far the best beer I’ve ever had, smooth yet full bodied, warm and flavorful yet not too strong or sweet, awesome!
