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.

BierMeHoos (352) - Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. A boozy chocolate organic stout, just as advertised. A clean, tasty beer, very highly rated. Thick and full, could be a dessert beer.

550 mL bottle pour. Pours black with a thick creamy head and lace. Sweet chocolate frosty aroma. Thivk, creamy body rich with milk chocolate. Probably too sweet for me, but I still like this beer. Dessert beer in my opinion. Pretty good.

550ml bottle at home. Dark cola-ish brown with a full tan head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Very sweet with some bitter tones. Dark chocolate (lots of it), brown sugar, caramel, malts and spices. A great sweet experiment!

Pours a deep brown, almost black with a strong tan head, moderate lacing. Aroma is reminiscent of chocolate milk. Medium sweetness with a note of bitterness. Medium bodied, slightly creamy with a little fizziness. Finished with a lingering sweet, chocolaty aftertaste. Overall, best chocolate beer I have yet had, very tasty and filling.

Smells like chocolate, tastes like chocolate left out too long. This beer is not really for me. Had from a bottle.

BMMillsy (1756) - Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2014
First time having this finally. Dark brownish black pour with off white head. Aroma of big roasty grains, some bakers chocolate. Flavor is the bittersweet chocolate up front and finishes with nice roasty bitter on the back end. Lingering chocolate on the palate. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, plenty of flavor. Nice stuff.
