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 at home. Pours clear black with a medium, frothy beige head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is chocolate and lactose, dates, figs, and earthy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with chocolate, light hops and bitterness and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Definitely a desert beer. Really chocolatey. Recommended with desert only. I would buy again to have in the stash.

Very, very chocolatey. This stout has a great base even before the cocoa is added. Excellent head. Good lacing. Aroma is of cocoa, almonds, and a hint of blackberry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown in color, thin tan head with a super chocolate aroma and flavor. Very tasty chocolate stout. Great after dinner and desert beer.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle@Home. Huge milk chocolate and coconut aroma. Opaque, beige head, good lace. Sweet, light bitter, milk chocolate, hint of soap. Pretty alcoholic feeling for only 5%. Intense chocolate.

Bottle at Vlaamsche Reus. I saw someone drinking this beer and was interested in it mostly because of the nice looks of the label. The beer itself is really nothing more than sweet milk chocolate. Way to much to drink a while bottle..

Incredibly vanilla-stuffed beer. A Real lady-plader. However, if you're a vanilla freak; this one is for you! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I don’t know how a Chocolate Stout can get better then this. This captures the flavor of a full bodied stout then adds a creamy chocolate flavor on top. My wife, who does not typically enjoy stouts, really liked this. I drank it chilled, but not too cold so the aroma really had a chance to come out.
