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.

Nice coco aroma. Delicious chocolatey taste. Not much of an alcohol content, .05%, but still very tasty Revere Stryker dog!

Pours black with a thin tan head that recedes quickly. Aroma is very sweet - a strong smell of chocolate. Taste is sweet with a hint of cocoa and a medium lightly bitter-sweet finish. Soft body, light carbonation.

12oz bottle shared by John. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is cocoa powder! Reminds me of making hot cocoa as a kid. With marshmallows too. Flavor is about the same, nice chocolate that’s not too sweet, not too bitter. Good mouthfeel too.

Ruikt ook naar toffee. Wel mooi! Grappig, weer best fris voor een stout. Lekker eigenlijk!

M_Sack (553) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2016
Bottle. Deep black, mocha head. Huge, rich dark chocolate aroma, with a hint of timber and spicy back note hops. Rich dark chocolate flavour, sweet throughout mid to end palate and earthy hops finishing off the beer. Terrifically smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

szymonskc (256) - Skórcz, POLAND - FEB 2, 2016
Intensywny zapach słodkiej czekolady, kakao, pralinki, świetny aromat. Barwa ciemnobrunatna, miedziane przebłyski pod światło. Piana obfita, średniopęcherzykowa, po chwili opada do cienkiej warstwy, która pozostaje do końca. W smaku czekoladowa słodycz, kakao, a mimo to jest bardzo pijalne, średnio treściwe. Niska, przyjemna, lekko kwaskowa goryczka, niskie wysycenie. Chociaż brakuje tutaj paloności typowej dla Stout’a, piwo świetne.

SamP01 (648) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2016
Pours a dark brown with a medium light brown head. Aroma and Taste is of sweet milk chocolate, some light roasted dark chocolate malt and some notes of vanilla, light bitterness from the roasted malt. A medium bodied brew with some light stickiness on the lips, carbonation is a bit much. Finish is light roasted dark malt, some notes of vanilla and a lingering sweet milk chocolate aftertaste. Not my first choice for a chocolate stout but still good a drinking stout
