3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Presentation: 355mL brown bottle with no freshness date anywhere, served in a snifter.
Appearance: Pours a deep black color, no light shines through the glass. Thereís a one finger,
tan colored head and some very good lacing that covers the whole glass.
Smell: Primary scents are of dark chocolate and roasted malt. Thereís also some burnt bread notes and hint of molasses.
Taste: Dark chocolate is dominant with some roasted malt in the background and a black coffee flavor as well.
Mouthfeel: Itís very smooth and easy to drink with low carbonation. It feels a bit light bodied and refreshing even, which is unexpected for a stout.
Overall: A very well crafted beer that is very approachable. Popular belief is that non-beer drinkers should start out with lighter colored and less flavorful brews. This beer shatters that stereotype with its drinkability and sweet chocolatey taste. It is actually a best seller in a lot of places down here in Puerto Rico.

Aroma is mostly chocolate. Taste is sweet chocolate on a balanced stout backbone. It is a sweet drink, more a dessert drink than a beer, but nice if you like sweet flavours.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a decadent beer. It deserves the designation of chocolate more than any other I know of by far. As well it is literally a sweet stout, more similar to an actual candy bar than most brews which should more accurately be called "cocoa stouts". It is swimming in chocolate. One of a kind distinctly sweet aroma. Chocolate with notes of chocolate and laced with chocolate with chocolate overtones. Tastes strong chocolate with hints of marshmallow. Color is effectively black but looking carefully through a thinner amount reveals that it is actually a very dark red or brown, similar to a Guinness. Feels great and drinks too easy but it is so strongly sweet and decadent that I would not like to drink more than one. This is not a dessert beer, this beer is dessert. Iíve been looking for a beer like this for a long time but in the time it took to get here Iíve realized that a beer is not meant to be chocolate milk. Would like to rate even higher, but as I have stated this is not for mature tastes and a little too rich in retrospect. You donít feel like youíve gained for drinking it once itís gone.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at The Congress, Longton. A deep brown colour with a thick, fizzy tan head. Aroma of sweet milk chocolate, like drinking chocolate, vanilla, hazelnut, slight roasted malts and subtle metallic tones. Taste of sweet milk chocolate, subtle roasted coffee, vanilla, hazelnut and slight roasted malts. Medium bodied and a smooth texture. A bittersweet, chocolatey finish with subtle roasted malt bitterness. I like how the sweet chocolatey, vanilla flavour is balanced with some roasted malt, coffee bitterness with some hazelnut flavours thrown in. Nice.
