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.

MiP (13046) - 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.
