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.

Aromat, jak i smak, przypominają czekoladę i nut jakby "Nesquikowe". Ogólnie ciut za słodkie. Można było Pofermentować dłużej. Koniec końców - piwo dobre./

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Nera con schiuma persistente marroncina di buona compattezza. Aroma fantastico, malto e vaniglia. Al palato si conferma molto dolce, con caffè appena accennato, cioccolato al latte spinto, anche la tostatura, mentre vaniglia. Abbastanza acquosa, non è cremosa e il corpo è leggero. La Stout più dolce che abbia mai provato, si addice ai dolci al cioccolato, non molto sul pasto.

Maracuja05 (734) - Mainz, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
23-08-16 / 355ml bottle. Pours a dark dark brown colour with frothy beige head, that disappears quite fast. So much chocolate in the nose. A bit creamy, but could be more. Very sweet. The chocolate is more like a cheap milkchocolate than a "luxurious chocolate". I dont get the high rating, maybe its just not my style.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2016 550ml bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black with a beautiful creamy beige head. The beer is quite well made but I absolutely don?t like the fake-ish chocolate flavor. Both at nose and palate it remembers me of industrial milk chocolate like the infamous Kinder one. Could benefit from more roasted flavors and/or bitterness to balance the sweetness. Mouthfeel is also very good but the aftertaste is pretty bland. Almost a beer for kids, disappointing.

Piwo doskonale czarne, nieprzejrzyste, piana gruba, beżowa, eleganckie. Aromat - zwala z nóg! Potężny duet czekolady i kawy doprawiony lekką palonością, kojarzy się z lodami czekoladowymi z ziarenkami kawy, bardzo intensywny. Nos zapowiada piwo bardzo, bardzo słodkie. Smak - mnóstwo czekolady, sporo karmelu ale nie szczypiącego, pojawia się wyraźniejsza niż w aromacie paloność, jakaś nawet goryczka. Szkoda, że w smaku nie ma już tak intensywnej kawy jak w aromacie. Posmak bardzo długi, czekoladowy z cieniem karmelu. Wysycenie średnie, faktura kremowa. Znakomite piwo!

Very dark brown, with a beige head. Rich chocolate aroma with a hint of vanilla. Smooth milk chocolate flavor with a slightly bitter finish of dark roasted malt. This is a beer for chocolate lovers.
