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.

Smell reminds me of YoHoo chocolate drink chocolatey and creamy. Rich sweet milk chocolate flavor with a hint of roastiness. Not overly complex but not one noted at all. Easy to drink but very satisfying. Would have liked for this to be just a tad heavier and filling but that would make it less drinkable. This is a very good beer would DEFINITELY buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, from some online place in the USA. Wonderful aroma of roasted coconut over the chocolate base. The beer is totally opaque dark brown, with a beautiful gray-beige creamy head. Flavours are lovely dark chocolate, milk chocolate, coconut milk and that same roasted coconut that brings the magic to the aroma. Delightful creamy palate. Another masterpiece of my favourite brewery. No need for the "organicness". That gimmick only takes away from the authenticity of this beer.

Intense milk chocolate aroma, thin look and head. Wonderful chocolate taste, though slightly artificial. Very nice and drinkable, but 1 dimensional

Bleh! Smells and tastes like a chocolate tobacco shell wrap from the gas station. Instead of a nice, mildly sweet cocoa flavor, I get this tobacco-esque flavor mixed with a bit of earth and hardly any sweetness. Gross.

Kolsvart med ljusbrunt medium stort skum! Massor med ljus söt choklad i doft och massor i smaken! ! Bra kolsyrad! Smakar verkligen mjölkchoklad! ! Grym öl!

Pours a very dark brown with a thick tan head that dwindles down to just a coating. Aromas of sweet chocolate with a touch of vanilla bean and mocha. Flavor here isn’t as good as the aroma. Bittersweet like unsweetened cocoa. Light bodied, light carbonation.

Tessic (842) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2013
This stout poured a deep black colour with a big, light brown, creamy head. To the nose there are scents of chocolate, roast and vanilla. First sip was very smooth but the mouthfeel was a little watery. Solid flavor of cocoa with a nice roasted finish. The chocolate flavor is a little "Quik" like but still very drinkable. The finish is dark chocolate. Its more like high end chocolate milk than beer but delicious none-the-less.

Had this one on Christmas Eve last year at my Grandmas house. Very chocolatey. Actually too much chocolate for me. I can see why people like it but I think it just wasnt for me so much.
