3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark brown body, with seemingly rocky tan head, which disappears after 10mins. Very strong aroma of cocoa and chocolate. Very strong cocoa sweetness dominates your tongue, some roast and aciditiy. Chocolate drink rather than actual stout. It seems really good when you try it, but gets really tiresome somewhere in half (550ml bottle), to the point when itís hardly drinkable., strongly recommend to split the bottle and serve as a dessert.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: 7/10. Acrid, cocoa, malt, a hint of ash.
Appearance: 5/5. Pours a cola brown-black with a lingering mocha head. Would score this 4/5 but awarding a bonus point for that label; itís really a beautiful label, the current photo just doesnít do it justice.
Taste: 7/10. Yup, Chocolate! Overpoweringly sweet, like chocolate syrup, with a gentle balancing sourness and a richness to the cocoa finish that reminds me of a mug of hot chocolate.
Palate: 4/5. Smooth, silky across the tongue and teeth, only a very gentle astringency.
Overall: 15/20. Itís a good beer, but too sweet for me (and I donít think Iíve EVER said that about a stout before, wow!). Could definitely use more cocoa and less sweetness to the brew, but that aside, itís a lovely example of itís kind, and certainly better than any other chocolate stout Iíve had before.

On the back of other chocolate stouts (brooklyn, brewdog) Iíve got to say I was disappointed. Too sweet for me. And the taste of chocolate was very heavy and too dominant. Iíd perfer more subtlety.

550ml bottle from the beerhive. Pours deep dark brown, thin beige head. Aromas of chocolate and little else. Cocoa powder. Maybe a little rum. Taste is all chocolate. Bit thin on the finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very dark brown with lasting beige head and decent lacing. Aroma is super chocolate, almost to the point of syrupy and artificial. Itís not bad, but thereís not much else to it. Taste is more of the same, with sugar and cocoa. Itís not a terrible drink, but itís more of a chocolate drink than a beer. It needs more alcohol to add warmth and more of a bite to make this interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a datk cola brown with a dark cola, long-lasting head. Pungent milk chocolate and hot cocoa mix aromas. Smooth mouthfeel. Taste approximates the nose. The only issue I have is that it tastes more like a cocoa drink than an ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured deep, dark reddish brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of cocoa, toasted malt, candy sweetness. Medium body, flavour much as the aroma, quite sweet, light dark chocolate bitterness underlying.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
W aromacie czekolada mleczna, wanilia, lekko palone, chmielowe i lekkie estry (jabłka). Kolor ciemnobrązowy, nieprzejrzysty, pod światło ciemnorubinowy Ładna, gęsta piana z ładnym lacingiem. W smaku także mleczna czekolada, więcej paloności, kawa a w tle także ciut estrůw. Piwo słodkie, goryczka niska, pełnia średnia, nasycenie średnie. Brakuje ciała w tym piwie, Imperial Stout w tym typie byłby chyba idealny. Ale i tak bardzo dobrze złożone, aksamitne piwo! Warka do 07.2015.
