COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Kraftig chokolade duft spredes når øllet skænkes op og det nøddebrune skum står smukt i glasset. Den sorte farve tillader røde nuancer foran en lyskilde, medens den første tår afslører en moderat fyldig Stout, der mætter knapt så meget. Fire forskellige slags malt, der i blandt chokolade malt og karamel malt, sætter sit præg og humlen er fint afstemt dertil. Drikkes snildt til deserter eller en sød eftermiddagsstund. Undergæret.

Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. Oh wow! A black beer with an off-white head. The aroma and taste is oh so chocolatey, but beautiful thick tasty chocolate. Sweet licquorice in the aroma also. If there’s a better chocolate beer out there bring it on!! Sumptuous.

harrisoni (13599) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2005
Bottle at London Gathering Nov 2005. Maeib tried to teach me how to pronounce the name, but I still can’t get the hang of it. Black beer with lasting beige head. Really, really, really chocolatey with some butterscotch. Quite good in mouth. Nice dark fruits. Bit over the top, but nice to sip

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 6, 2005
Bottle. Different label. Aroma rich of chocolate and coffee. I expected some more chocolate in the flavor. Quite a thin mouthfeel with a fresh note. Palate is mostly coffee.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2005
50 cl bottle. Different label. 5.7 ABV. Aroma is extremely dominated by chocolate and vanilla. Very sweet body and extremely warming finish. I miss some bitternes and complexity in this brew.

yngwie (13392) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 27, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2011 Bottle, as Kjaerstrup Chocolate Stout. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, butter, caramel. Dark brown with tan head. Taste is much the same, like a crossover between a sweet chocolate toffee and a stout. Probably it will be too overwhealming to drink a bottle, but I sheared it with four friends, and then it was good. Rating: 6-4-8-3-17-3.8. 050923

Bottle, as Choko Stout. It’s a dark chestnut beer, clear, and with a small, beige head. Chocolate, dried fruits, some hints of DMS and a pleasant roasted touch in the aroma. Coffee, chocolate and dried fruits in the flavor, finishing with mostly chocolate. Medium body. A nice beer indeed, but not as nice as I remember it from five years ago, guess my palate has evolved. 100917

Sigmund (5047) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought in Denmark. ABV is 5.7%. Dark ruby nearly black colour, large tan head. Aroma is overhelming chocolate (like chocolate sauce), artificial vanilla, cocoa, candy and caramel. Definitely too much of all the sweet aromas. Flavour is not quite as overwhelmingly sweet as the aroma makes you fear, but pretty close. Again: too much chocolate, cocoa and artificial vanilla, some coffee notes too. I’m not amused. Couldn’t finish the bottle.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2005
Bottled, alc. 5.7 % (BB 03/2006, different label than in RB photo)
Dark ruby, good tanned head, lace. Strong nose of milk chocolate and vanilla pudding. Suprisingly this is not very sweet - more like hoppy bitter with dark chocolate (coffee, cocoa). Long bitter aftertaste with burnt coffee beans.

argo0 (11452) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 28, 2005
(50cl bottle, best by 3/06) Clear dark red-brown body topped by a big tan head. Aroma is sweet, CHOCOLATE (they definitely are not kidding about it being a chocolate beer), specifically cocoa -- stronger chocolate aroma than I have ever experienced before, accented by cappuchino. Taste is sweet, strong cocoa, cappuchino. Smooth medium body. No real bitterness.

Ratings vary a goodly amount but it really boils down to this -- if the idea of a beer dessert appeals to you, this may be your dream beer. Otherwise, well, you have been warned. By way of comparison, this beer has DDC Aphrodisiaque beat aromawise, but Aphrodisiaque has a better taste.
