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.

By far the best chocolate stout I have ever tasted. The chocolate taste is overly apparent, and for those who would like to taste more stout than chocolate, this beer is not for you. Amazing with a slice of chocolate cake.

Bottle. A dark reddish brown beer topped by a small, dense, beige head. The aroma is dominated by chocolate, with a fruity sweetish--ness. Chocolate, sweetness, white sugar, hints of coffee and quite a lot of fruityness, with some vanilla sugar in the back. Medium body, almost thin, with a decent carbonation. Way to sugary this one, but at least there’s chocolate going on. 140418

Bottled. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of primary chocolate, slightly roeated malt, caramel and dark fruit notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied, oily to creamy texture and soft carb. A delicious and smooth stout.

550ml bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki

Pours pitch black with a smooth white head. Aroma of cocoa powder, vanilla and roastiness. Taste is sweet, powdery and artificial with some vanilla and cocoa notes. Finish is sweet with notes of chocolate, cocoa and vanilla. Okay, but a bit unbalanced.

Where do I start? This was delicious. Poured dark. Smell was a lovely hot chocolate. The taste was almost as delicious and chocolatey.

Bottle. Chocolate but mostly tootsie roll aroma, tastes artificially sweet and almost exactly how it smells. Its actually surprising that’s it organic. It tastes totally artificial which detracts from the experience. Good but a little disappointing.
