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, 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.

(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.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2005
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.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2005
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.

Belgo (154) - Køge, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2005
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.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 5, 2005
Bottle. Dark red brown colour with a big baige head. Heavy sweet milk chocolat aroma and taste. Medium body and a super sweet finish. To sweet chocolat like, almost pervers.

Black body with a light brown head. Sweet aroma with lots of milk chocolate. Roasted malts in the flavor with again lots of chocolate, very onedimensional.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2005
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.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 25, 2004
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).
