Garrold (2488) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Hazy, dark orange. Film of sticky, white head. Aroma of bitter chocolate orange. Fair bit of spicy hop. Taste is very sweet, turning full on bitter. Oily palate. Very punchy. Finishes long, full on, spicy bitter. I do get it. But I donít care for it. Itís a bit at odds, for me.

harrisoni (14984) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle from The Bottle Shop Canterbury. intrigued by the name more than anything. Hazy dark amber colour lasting beige head. Light chocolate on the aroma. Light carbonation. Some hops. Itís odd. Some hop some milk chocolate flavour. Some bitterness on the finish with some sweetness. Odd. Sticky hoppy aroma. Sweetish milk choc ipa

bigchewy (14) - - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle from Barbeerian, nice colour, off white head, aroma is slightly chocolate/toffee. Chocolate taste comes through softly followed by bitterness and kinda reminds me of a DIPA. Odd but drinkable, well worth experiencing.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Nocturne (1117) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Tap at BrewDog Manchester. Hazy reddish shade. Washes of white head, some lacing. Smells earthy and piney with a strawberry-like fruitiness. Taste is more bitter piney flavours. I love a gimmicky beer, but while the flavours here seem close to chocolate they donít even come close to nailing it. Not a bad IPA in itself though.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
The_Osprey (3031) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Keg at Draft House. Dark reddy brown, sparkling, hazy, small dense foamy off-white head endures, leaves thick lacing. Aroma is chocolate syrup, pecan pie. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste has more pecan and chocolate syrup, resin, pine, straw, some pithy drying orange bringing up the rear, a little astringent. Chocolate fades over time, but it achieves what was promised. Weird, but it grew on me.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
nihtila (1600) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear darkish amber. Nose is fruits, hops, caramel and hints of chocolate. Taste is bitter fruity, citrus, orange and gentle chocolate. A bit unusual style to mix chocolate with but it actually works.

allmyvinyl (6033) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 18, 2015
330ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear golden brown, thick off-white head. Aromas of yeast funk, wood, chocolate. Taste is chocolate orange, bitter pine. Creamy texture, very bitter finish.

AshtonMcCobb (3759) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - amber with a decent head. Nose - chocolate orange, fruit salad Taste - creamy chocolate laden with fruit. Light honey. Iíve got it. Think of the chocolate in a box of chocolates which has that orange centre. Thatís it. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long elegant finish. Overall - Iím a huge fan. Very decadent indeed.

Keg at hanging bat. Fruity and bitter, toffee, tropical, slight hint of chocolate.
