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.

IlGagario (115) - Modena, ITALY - APR 11, 2016
In bottiglia. Colore nero impenetrabile con lontanissimo riflesso rossastro. Schiuma da stout irlandese, di media persistenza. Magnifico olfatto di cioccolata al latte, caffè dolce e caramello. Carbonazione alquanto attiva, intensa e frizzante. Aroma di cioccolato al latte, caffè, biscotto dolce caramellato, pane di segale, nocciola vanigliata e leggera frutta secca, malto caramellato, luppolo amaro orzato, zucchero di canna. Gusto dolce pieno, poi breve recupero amaro, crespo, leggermente polveroso e terroso. Corpo soffice, trama da lattica a oleosa. Nonostante il non perfetto equilibrio, è davvero un ottimo prodotto, modello ideale del reparto sweet stout, di buonissima intensità, alla lunga forse un po’ stucchevole (da condividere!).

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a frothy to creamy briefly lasting brown head that leaves some lacing. aroma is overpowered by milk chocolate that has the smell of Hershey’s chocolate syrup -- not very appealing for a beer. Heavy sweet, light body, not balanced, no bitter, flavor of malted milk balls, thin, soft carbo, and a dry sweet finish.

Wow. Don’t try chocolate flavored beer in the states before you’ve had this. The aroma is sweet, like molasses and chocolate milkshake. The taste is amazing. It’s not too sweet, rather it’s like a root beer.

It is a good chocolate stout, sweeter than the young’s. The color is black and white foam, low carbonation. The taste is really sweet but it is not unpleasant, it is like milk and chocolate for the breakfast, few hop, milk chocolate, some roasted malt. I bought this bottle at Zürich, at the drink of the world.

Buena cerveza en su conjunto con buen color y buena retención de espuma de color veige. Carbonatación media y un sabor dulce entre el chocolate y el dulce de leche. Amargor final seco proveniente del cacao y maltas tostadas

Pours dark brown, with a brown, creamy head. Aroma is chocolate malts, vanilla, mocca and bread, as well as nuts and leather. Full, velvety body, with very soft carbonation. Flavour is roasted malts, with dark chocolate, wooden barrels and light coffee notes. Lingering, balanced malty finish. Very nice.

*Old rating. Nice chocolatey roasted milk chocolate beginning. Intense but a bit sweetish, milk chocolate, round and refreshing. Caramel, hints of vanilla, round and deep great.
