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.

TET (2109) - FINLAND - MAY 15, 2015
A very dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. A nose is strongly sweet and chocolate, cocoa, some vanilla, strong sweetness. Taste is also strongly sweet, milk chocolate, some esanse notes. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation. Too sweet and slightly esanse notes with the strong milk chocolate is just too much. Sweet dessert.

Dark and well carbonated. Nice thick, creamy head. Sweet aroma, surprisingly light smelling. The taste is sweet and fresh. Very clear chocolate... Kind of chocolate bunny like. Well balanced and surprisingly bright flavour despite the chocolate and dark ness.

fantti (791) - FINLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Pullo @ Alko. Kaatuu lasiin tummanruskeana ja "kirkkaana", vaahto on 2,5 sormen paksuista ja tasaiseen katoavaa. Tuoksua dominoi makea maitosuklaisuus, ja sen alta ei paljon muuta ole aistittavissa. Paahtunutta maltaisuutta ja maitomaisuutta on hiven tuoksussa mukana, mutta vain hieman. Maussa sama suklaisuus jatkuu, nyt kuitenkin paahteinen maltaisuus ja maitomaisuus on huomattavasti selvemmin havaittavissa. Hiven vanilijaa ja vaahtokarkkiakin on joukossa, lisäten imelyyttä. Suutuntuma on todella makea, jopa ällömakean puolella. Makeus kyllä tuo samalla täyteläisyyttä, mutta se on kuitenkin vähän liikaa. Todella makea ja suklaan dominoima stout, jossa nyanssit eivät pääse esiin kaiken makeuden alta. Sanomattakin varmaan selvää, ettei ollut hintansa (6,10 €) arvoinen.

Fatehunter (1647) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Pours two fingers of head on a black body. The aroma is rich chocolate, vanilla and toast. Wonderful. The taste has chocolate sweetness, then coffee bitter. The texture is smooth but still fizzy. Outstanding.

Silvan7 (863) - Samarate, ITALY - MAY 9, 2015
Marrone, velata, riflessi rubino. Schiuma beige finissima, persistente. Aroma intenso, cioccolato fondente, tostatura, vaniglia, luppolatura erbacea. Gusto dolce amabile, cioccolato fondente, caffè freddo, tostatura, zucchero di canna. Corposa, poco carbonata, poco calda, rotonda. Equilibrata nonostante dolcezza estrema.

echudy (69) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2015
The scent is a little off, sort of funky and no chocolate. Thick dark in color. Nice chocolate flavor, but a bit too much like milk chocolate as opposed to dark, with the aftertaste of a cheaper chocolate bar

EtTuCthulhu (1375) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 6, 2015
The beer pours a very, very dark brown (nearly black) color with red highlights and with a medium tan head that fades somewhat slowly. The aroma blends milk chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of roasted malts, and it’s so decadent. The flavor is roughly equivalent to a mix of dark and milk chocolate, making it mildly sweet, slightly bitter, and slightly umami. The aftertaste maintains the heavy chocolate flavor; unfortunately, it is a bit thin in texture and average in carbonation, but the medium body makes it very drinkable without it ever really overpowering the palate.
