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.

jakubwloszcz (108) - Piastów, POLAND - FEB 22, 2016
UPDATED: APR 29, 2016 Intensywny aromat mlecznej czekolady, trochę pralinek i wanilii. Piana obfita, bardzo ładnie oblepia szkło. W smaku nie jest bardzo słodkie, oprócz czekolady wyczuwalna jest też kawa i nugat, brakuje trochę paloności, fajny gorzko-czekoladowy finisz. No i bardzo ładna etykieta!

WaddlingPlatypus (64) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2016
500ml bottle at the Swan and Three Cygnets, Durham. Dark red with a fine off-white head. Curious synthetic aroma of strawberry mixed in with sweet caramel (I liked this, but I suspect this will be a point of contention). Flavours of cinder toffee, sweet caramel, and slightly burnt coffee vie for dominance, with an overall sticky mouthfeel of sweetness.
