Cimbasso (647) - - APR 18, 2016
Sampled from a bottle. Black colour with a light brown head.Rich aromas of chocolate and freshly-baked bread. The taste is complex with milky coffee, chocolate, cigar ash and vine fruit all in the flavour. Very sweet, but balanced by a good bitterness. Very pleasant to drink. A memorably good beer.

Piwo niemal czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana trwała, drobnopęcherzykowa. W aromacie czekolada, kakao. W smaku podobnie, z goryczkowym finiszem. Pełnia wysoka. Wysycenie średnie. Świetne.

MKibilko (22) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2016
Drinked from bottle, bought in Bottle Apostle, Crouch End. Almost black with brown reflects. Very nice brown head. Pretty rich, but ir doesn’t last too long. Roasted coffee and cocoa aromas are the base ones. But you can also feel yeast and bread. First sip is strange, but next ones are opening nice taste of that stout. Pretty sweet taste, with a bitterness at the end. Long and nice finish. Average carbonation, medium to full body, nice oily texture. Really good beer.

Siren Chocolate Carribean Stout shared by Mick. Inky black with a ruddy tan head. The aroma is rich savoury cacao nibs ands spices. The taste is dark chocolate paste , spices and deliciousness. Very soft easy drinking stuff, Siren never disappoints.

Hanoi (768) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Bottle. Nose is rich coco, vanilla, faint hint of smoke, cream. Taste is gently smokey, lots of cream, very soft coco, vanilla, and a smokey faintly herbal, licorice, light hop and smoke finish. Further sips give a boiled lemon sweet effect, in the mid palate, perhaps lemon grass tea, which I guess is the wood? Rich and delicious and beautifully balanced.
