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.

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

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

vami (331) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 20, 2014
Very intensive chocolate aroma, bitter chocolate taste, intensive, cocoa powder notes. Creamy, crispy. Tastes a bit like hot chocolate mixed with beer. Really unique!

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Brown, copper undertones, tall, persistent head. Intense, rich chocolate nose. Medium body, silky texture, rich, made smoother while mousse lasts, low alcohol burn, very assertive flavor, short palate. Bitter, sharp, not quite dry, eell balanced. Flavor is overwhelmigly and deliciously chocolaty, with good coffee to boot. Delicious, rich without being cloying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LCBO score. Sugared bitter chocolate. I thought it would thicker. Drinkable but 500 ml is something to be shared.

(Bottle, 0.55 l - BBE Dec 14 , at William K Annankatu, 20140117) The beer poured black. Its head was small and lightly brown. Aroma had chocolate and burnt malts. Flavours were chocolate, sweetness, toasted malts and bitterness. Aftertaste had sweetness and bitterness. A very sweet and chocolate flavoured brew that was too excessive for me.
