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.

Fatehunter (2274) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Pours two fingers of head on a black body. The aroma is rich chocolate, vanilla and toast. Wonderful. The taste has chocolate sweetness, then coffee bitter. The texture is smooth but still fizzy. Outstanding.

echudy (151) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2015
The scent is a little off, sort of funky and no chocolate. Thick dark in color. Nice chocolate flavor, but a bit too much like milk chocolate as opposed to dark, with the aftertaste of a cheaper chocolate bar

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2015
The beer pours a very, very dark brown (nearly black) color with red highlights and with a medium tan head that fades somewhat slowly. The aroma blends milk chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of roasted malts, and it’s so decadent. The flavor is roughly equivalent to a mix of dark and milk chocolate, making it mildly sweet, slightly bitter, and slightly umami. The aftertaste maintains the heavy chocolate flavor; unfortunately, it is a bit thin in texture and average in carbonation, but the medium body makes it very drinkable without it ever really overpowering the palate.

bluus (2) - - APR 30, 2015 does not count
Bottle, pours black with light brownish head. Aroma has chocolate and cocoa and the taste is sweet but rather well balanced. I’m not a big fan of chocolate stouts but this one is definitely one of the best ones I’ve had.

550ml bottle from Alko, thanks k0mpsa. Super chocolate and cocoa nose with deep delicious cacao like aromas. Smooth and easy drinking, but very well balanced flavors. Surprisingly good from our monopoly.
