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.

Villyzzz (44) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 12, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with medium beíge head. NIce lacing. Aroma is milk chocolate, mocha and cream. Taste has a lot of chocolate. Quite sweet with caramel and hints of malt. A bit light bodied but it suits the sweetness really well. Some bitterness but not overwhelmingly. Easily drinkable with quite short finish. Really nice and different chocolate stout. Will buy again.

evannell (730) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Aromat, jak i smak, przypominają czekoladę i nut jakby "Nesquikowe". Ogólnie ciut za słodkie. Można było Pofermentować dłużej. Koniec końców - piwo dobre./

lello4ever (675) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2016 Nera con schiuma persistente marroncina di buona compattezza. Aroma fantastico, malto e vaniglia. Al palato si conferma molto dolce, con caffè appena accennato, cioccolato al latte spinto, anche la tostatura, mentre vaniglia. Abbastanza acquosa, non è cremosa e il corpo è leggero. La Stout più dolce che abbia mai provato, si addice ai dolci al cioccolato, non molto sul pasto.

Maracuja05 (448) - Mainz, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2016
23-08-16 / 355ml bottle. Pours a dark dark brown colour with frothy beige head, that disappears quite fast. So much chocolate in the nose. A bit creamy, but could be more. Very sweet. The chocolate is more like a cheap milkchocolate than a "luxurious chocolate". I dont get the high rating, maybe its just not my style.
