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.

Great beer. Pours black with a tan head. Milk chocolate aromas that also come through in the taste.

KW92 (525) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 18, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna z rubinowymi refleksami, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, wysoka, dość trwała.
AROMAT: Cudny zapach czekolady. Kojarzący się z batonem "Bounty", czyli dużo kokosa, dużo kakao i dużo czekolady.
SMAK: Bardzo, bardzo intensywny Czekolada, kakao, lekka paloność, nuty kawowe. Posmak czekoladowo-kakaowy. Goryczka niska. wysycenie średnie.
OGÓLNIE: Poezja, fantastyczne, można wąchać bez końca! Pomimo słodkiego aromatu, to w smaku mam do czynienia ze szlachetnym kakao, które świetnie balansuje smak, a przynajmniej ma się takie "wrażenie". Mówiąc krótko - nie zasłodzimy się tym piwem.

Aroma: Rich milk chocolate aromas. Appearance: Inky black with tan head. Taste: Heavy sweetness with hints of bitterness at the edges. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: A bit too rich and chocolatey, like drinking a glass of chocolate milk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fantastic brew. Has a nice chocolate aroma. A nice creamy chocolate taste with some hints of coffee, and it’s all organic good stuff.

An obvious classic. Rich, semisweet chocolate blends with oats and cereal grain. Cocoa powder finish. Notes of vanilla and almonds. Creamy feel.

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 6, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2015 Opaque black. Large frothy beige head with impressive retention. Immensely potent chocolate aroma that’s discernible from quite a distance. Malt, mild roast and caramel are present as well, but the chocolate is truly robust. Mid bodied and quite creamy. Despite the thus mentioned inviting characteristics, this is unfortunately far too sweet for my liking. The finish contains a futile amount of hop and all other flavours are suppressed by sweet chocolate. Hence, this one lacks complexity and balance in my opinion. If you truly enjoy particularly sweet chocolate though, this one is for you.

Shared bottle @ home from Nina’s Minimarket, Edinburgh. Body is clear nearly black, head is very small brownish mostly diminishing good lacing. Nose is sweet chocolate, aroma is milky chocolate, molasses. Heavy sweet. Long sweet chocolate finish. Full body, creamy and sticky texture, average carbonation. Not too easy dessert beer, way too sweet for me.

bultelka (pocieszna objetosc - 550ml), warka do Mar 16. Bardzo ladna, bardzo wysoka piana, opada bez duzego pospiechu do cienkiej warstewki, na szkle tylko troche zostaje. Samo piwo klarowne, ciemne - brazowe z czerwonymi akcentami, przeswituje dosc mocno glownie przy nalewaniu. Aromat bardzo intensywny, przy czym wcale nie czekolady, a kojarzacy sie raczej z granulowanym, rozpuszczalnym kakao. moze z jakims ciastem kakaowym? z tiramisu? Niby chemia, ale w sumie jakiegos skrzywienia sie nie budzi, wrecz przeciwnie. bardziej niepokojace jest to, ze w sumie przykrywa niemal wszystko inne, trzeba sie domyslac... palonosc? karmel? czekolada? wanilia? w smaku glownie slodycz, nie skontrowana niczym zabardzo. slady palonosci kwaskowatej. W ustach pozostaje dosc dlugi posmak kakaowy. Malo cialo (na szczescie, wiecej by stworzylo ulepek, zalepiajacy ulepek), niewysokie wysycenie. nie jest to jakies zle, wadliwe piwo. Tyle, ze zbyt jednostronne chyba jak dla mnie. Pewnie w butelce 0,33 mialoby wyzsza ocene, bo pod koniec zaczyna nudzic i meczyc
