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.

Poured from a bottle. Pours a dark brown with a ton of head. It smells like an alcoholic bad chocolate milk. Not a whole lot else. The taste is kind of chocolatey, but more thin and boozy. The mouth feel is really thin, and I just can't get over the taste. Ugh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from bottle. Smells just like chocolate milk. Tastes of dark chocolate with hints of nuts and coffee. The after taste is sweet but reminds me of a Hershey special dark bar. Good beer

Good looking dark brown beer with a medium-thick light tan head. Nose of caramelized sugar, rich dark chocolate, and cocoa powder. This beer smells great! Taste mimics the aroma with a profound chocolate sweetness up front balanced by a satisfying bitterness, all buoyed by resiny mouth feel with some surprisingly effervescent carbonation. This is a pretty sweet beer, but the bitterness keeps it from becoming cloying over time. The sweetness may turn some people off, but I enjoyed it.

Bottle. Hazy brown color, with an off white head. Very chocolatey, sugar, and dry cocoa powder. Rather thin. Not my type of beer.

OldGrowth (3178) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2013
bottle, from Triangle Wine, I think, good aroma, sweet. chocolate, clean dark orangy brown color, good head and lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body, thin creamy mouthfeel, sweet finish. Pretty nice drinking stout, all about the cocoa/chocolate. Kind of surprised it doesn’t have more ratings as available as it is.

MiP (15187) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle, 5%. Chocolate powder aroma. Black colour. Good stable light brown head. The flavour is sweet with a strong, pungent chocolate note. More like chocolate powder for mixing with more than real chocolate. Rather sweet, tastes like lactose.

Bamsen78 (4926) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle @ Zentraleuropäischer Wahnsinn 2. Pours cloudy nearly black with airy tan head. Sweet aroma of chocolate and malt. Sweet, choco onset, quickly offset by roasty notes, touches of malt and coffee beans. Aftertaste of dark chocolate. Nice.
