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.

imdownthepub (10974) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Bottled, 500ml from Morrison’s in Banbury. Black with off white head. There are chocolate notes in the aroma when pouring and a sweet, milky chocolate on the palate, reasonably silky and mouth filling. The sweetness becomes a little cloying with an artificial character. Boiled milk in the close. Interesting and reasonable.

BierMeHoos (226) - Maryland, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. A boozy chocolate organic stout, just as advertised. A clean, tasty beer, very highly rated. Thick and full, could be a dessert beer.

550 mL bottle pour. Pours black with a thick creamy head and lace. Sweet chocolate frosty aroma. Thivk, creamy body rich with milk chocolate. Probably too sweet for me, but I still like this beer. Dessert beer in my opinion. Pretty good.

Pours a deep brown, almost black with a strong tan head, moderate lacing. Aroma is reminiscent of chocolate milk. Medium sweetness with a note of bitterness. Medium bodied, slightly creamy with a little fizziness. Finished with a lingering sweet, chocolaty aftertaste. Overall, best chocolate beer I have yet had, very tasty and filling.
