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.

Dark brown with barely any head. Aroma of milk chocolate. Taste is very full dark chocolate and finished with a bitter coffee note. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Suklainen Malibu, isolla vaahdolla. Mallasta ja alkoholia puuttuu. Vähän paksumpana koville pisteille.

Towey1989 (796) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle at The Congress, Longton. A deep brown colour with a thick, fizzy tan head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate, like drinking chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut, slight roasted malts and subtle metallic tones. Taste of sweet milk chocolate, subtle roasted coffee, vanilla, hazelnut and slight roasted malts. Medium bodied and a smooth texture. A bittersweet, chocolatey finish with subtle roasted malt bitterness. I like how the sweet chocolatey, vanilla flavour is balanced with some roasted malt, coffee bitterness with some hazelnut flavours thrown in. Nice.

bottled - too sweet. Smells awesome though. Sweet chocolate flavor. Good otherwise, just too sweet for me.

Dark brown and light in texture. Big milk chocolate aroma. Sweet and nutty chocolate, but overall very nice mild stout.

Bottle at TPSA. Pours an opaque dark brown with a shallow, quick-dissipating cream head that quickly turned into a ring. Nose is milk chocolate, lactose, spice, vanilla, and a touch of coffee. On the tongue, the flavors shift darker; the milk chocolate becomes dark baking chocolate, and molasses and coffee come into play. Finish is long and bitter. One of the more skillful uses of chocolate I’ve had in beer.
