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.

The colour of black coffee. 1/2 inch of head. The smell of chocolate syrup can be smelt from a mile away. a mile malt smell as well. Taste of milk chocolate, bitter coffee and caramel. Overall one of the best stouts I have ever had.

From a 550 ml bottle, pours an extremely dark cokelike appearance. Smell is roasty with a strong chocolate presence. Taste is actually really sweet as opposed to bitter which threw me off. Definitely a unique stout. Somewhat thicker in feel. Would try at least one.

Hermod (3086) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
50cl bottle, sample. Deep black, thick brown head. Mudcake, chocolate aroma, overly sweet. Chocolat flavor, sweetness, malt. I like chocolate desserts and all, but this was almost too much.

Bottle. Black. Sweet milk chocolate nose, ashy roasty. Bit on the lighter side, dry but soft, almost creamy. Milky sweetness, a bit dessertly. Nice.

Derek881 (1000) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a wet appearance with a deep brown-black color with a deep brown hue with a good-sized creamy tan head with average retention, but good cling and lacing. It had a roasty cocoa aroma with notes of chocolate and a grainy, earthy hops balance, along with some yeast and barley. The taste was mostly cocoa and sweet with some more typical chocolate tones, along with a light grainy bitterness. It had a wet and watery body with a medium-thick mouthfeel and a creamy feel with low to average carbonation.

Bottle. Pours black with creme colored head that lingers. Smells of vanilla/banana with mind carbonation. Tastes of milk chocolate. Not overly sweet yet little coffee flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very intensive chocolate aroma, bitter chocolate taste, intensive, cocoa powder notes. Creamy, crispy. Tastes a bit like hot chocolate mixed with beer. Really unique!
