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.

Pours black with an off-white head. Nose shows chocolate syrup, cocoa nibs and chocolate essence. Little else. Very sweet flavours too. Lots of artificial tasting chocolate and little else. Some soft roast. A bit cloying. Body feels watery.

Delicious. Incredibly chocolaty and creamy. Thick and delightful on the palate, with a heavy finish. Lingering aftertaste that leaves you craving more. Like drinking rich chocolate milk ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 550ml. When I open my bottle, the first aroma was a marvelous chocolate. It was like i was smelling a liquid chocolate. Same aroma came from the glass, but this time there is also a bit of a coffe. Beer got a beautiful head, it has a deeply brown colour, that seems to like like a black. In taste, the most dominant flavour is sweetness that came from chocolate, but there is also a light coffe aroma. Bitterness is very low. One of the best sweet stouts I have been drinking.

JK (4283) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Thick and black. I thought the alcohol was higher. Strong chocolate flavor and aroma with roasted malt. This beer has possibly the best chocolate flavor of any beer I have had, like drinking a candy bar. Excellent.

exeter (192) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
The colour of black coffee. 1/2 inch of head. The smell of chocolate syrup can be smelt from a mile away. a mile malt smell as well. Taste of milk chocolate, bitter coffee and caramel. Overall one of the best stouts I have ever had.

Mastelefish (53) - North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2014
From a 550 ml bottle, pours an extremely dark cokelike appearance. Smell is roasty with a strong chocolate presence. Taste is actually really sweet as opposed to bitter which threw me off. Definitely a unique stout. Somewhat thicker in feel. Would try at least one.

COMRADEJOSH (260) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Strong aroma of chocolate that perfectly matches the smooth creamy chocolate taste of this stout. A delicious beer that mkes me wish i could brush my teeth with it.

Hermod (2805) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 24, 2014
50cl bottle, sample. Deep black, thick brown head. Mudcake, chocolate aroma, overly sweet. Chocolat flavor, sweetness, malt. I like chocolate desserts and all, but this was almost too much.

Bottle. Black. Sweet milk chocolate nose, ashy roasty. Bit on the lighter side, dry but soft, almost creamy. Milky sweetness, a bit dessertly. Nice.
