3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(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.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2007 (Bottle 70 cl) Comes as "Kjaerstrup Chocolate Stout". Almost black with a reddish tint, very subdued, small head - heavy carbonation. Pronounced chocolatey notes, adding a bitter touch. Very extraordinary beer that goes well with....chocolate. 100404

(on bottle)I don´t know about this; it´s the most chocolated beer I´ve ever had and that´s about it, It´s good chocolate and they told me in the shop that it is aa new brew compared to ½ a year ago. If you want good chocolate in liquid form, go for this baby.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50 cl Bottle. At Morten birthday, thanks. Black to dark brown in colour, with the most wonderful aroma of choclate. This beer is really amazing, it’s allmost to drink a beer with the mouth full of choclate. Nice palate, and a lovely aftertaste. But!!!!!! When I had drink a half bottle, I had too much of it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Dark brown with a cappucino coloured very fine lasting head. The aroma is pure chocolate and nothing else. But in this case it is great quality chocolate and not the cheap rubbish that a lot of other producers of chocolate stouts seem to fancy in their beer. To me good quality chocolate is one of the most complex and immensely satisfying flavours in the world, so I’m all for this beer. On the palate the beer is mediumbodied and with a slight bitter finish from the hops reminding you that this is actually beer and not liquid chocolate.

Bottle @ HBK Black Beer Festival, Nynäshamn Backlog 26 Nov 2004
Smells like a certain Swedish chocolate candy (Plopp). Quite sour in taste and has a dry instant cappuccino final.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Intensive and impressive chocolate/cocoa aroma. Flavour is sweet and full of chocolate as well - they must have used "a ridiculous amount" of chocolate for this stout (which also makes it pretty expensive)! Finish is mild and pleasant. A very good dessert beer (but you don’t want to drink an entire bottle yourself).
