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.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Very tasty dessert beer. The aroma is really nice. Milk chocolate - praline like. Nice thick head. Taste very balanced. Not too sweet not too beeter, although a bit on a sweet side, which is proper for the style. The carbonation is quite low which for me is a disadvantage. Very good sweet stout!

Very strong but pleasant chocolate aroma. Very smooth tasting with a sweet chocolate finish.

Pours a really dark brown with a medium offwhite head that leaves really good lacing. Nose is of cocoa powder and powdered milk, not bad in itself but not particularly exciting to me. This seems like it would do good in a cake mix... Taste is sweet but not too much with the same cocoa flavors. Hopefully it doesn’t feel artificial and does not linger for too long. Body is medium, mouthfeel a little thinner than I would have thought... Carbonation is medium. Not bad at all and would probably pair well with some nice dessert, but this isn’t my type of (sweet) stout in the end.

Chocolate stands out in this stout. Slight taste of nuts and coffee. Very smooth in the palate and just a subtle bitterness.

Pours very dark brown approaching black with a decent sized khaki head that settles slowly and leaves some splotchy lace. Nose involves scads of cocoa up front, some vanilla, some underlying dark fruits, and more dark chocolate. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter, nothing excessive. Light-medium body, frothy, a touch oily, toasty, with a drying dark chocolate finish. Tasty brew, would be good on breakfast cereal or with traditional English breakfast, or after 4 or 5 other beers, scotch eggs, and a fucking burger (nap time). A true session cocoa-infused stout. They should put this in a 6-pack of cans so I can take it to the park and feed the seagulls.

Bottled from Systembolaget Black with a beige head. Loads of milky chocolate in the aroma. Rather sweet flavour with even more milky chocolate. Still rather fresh palate though. Low bitterness.

It pours dark brown, almost opaque; the head is beige and foamy. The aroma has notes of: milk-powder, milk chocolate, and a slight nuttiness. The taste is medium sweet, with a light bitterness; there are notes of: milk chocolate, coffee, and a slight hint of anise. The palate is medium bodied, slick, has medium-light carbonation, and a long sticky finish. Overall, pretty good, this is a nice flavoured beer.
