4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a clear but opaque dark, dark ruby brown giving it a black appearance. Fairly large head with a lot of lace leaving rings down the side of the glass as I eagerly consumed it. Huge chocolate sauce aroma, reminding me of club bistro chocolate sundaes that came in stainless steel bowls. On drinking it revealed some nuttiness that then reminded me of drinking Mr Whippy chocolate thickshakes. Fairly dry, surprising for a sweet stout, but this just allowed it to slide down easily without cloying. Well balanced flavour, with the only negative being a rather light, thin body. Very tasty - thanks to highlandlad (via Papsoe) for the opportunity.

Black colour. Large, thick head. The aroma is all sweet chocolate. The flavour is smooth chocolate then turns into a dryish, bitter finish.

Hazy mahogany brown with a thick tan head. Clear chocolatey aroma. Some ice cream chocolate flavour with notes of cocoapowder. Smooth mouthfeel. Not so roasted as expected.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
What’s for pudding, mum? Yum - I’ll have seconds. This sweet creamy chocolate stout is a dessert in itself. I suspect it would be sickly in large quantities but a bottle shared between two was very morish. It looked magnificent: dark brown with a ruby tint at the base of the glass and a massive marshmallow head that lingered for an eternity and painted the glass. It smelled like a fudge sundae - chocolate, nuts, cream, marshmallows. Very sweet and creamy, with a bit of old couch thrown in for good measure. The mouthfeel was soft, with the only caveat being that the body verged on thin. In the mouth, it’s a pleasant surprise that it’s not as sweet as it smells. There was some smoked wood, marshmallow again, and chocolate milkshake. Smooth, with minimal bitterness. A quality sweet stout. (50cl bottle courtesy of Papsoe - thanks Henrik; best before 19/4/06)

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark colour with little head. Aroma with heavy and syntetic notes of chocolate and cocoa. Tastes the same way, it seemed to be very syntetic, but I´ll try it again, maybe I just had too much to drink, since my friends liked it much.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Small head with medium duration. Color is dark brown. Heavy chocolate aroma and taste. This is not just made by chocolate malts. This has real chocolate/cocoa. Makes me think of Baileys.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown beer. Clear aroma of warm cocoa. Flavor mainly chocolade but also hints of laqurice. A bit too odd to be perfect.
