Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Fullers snifter glass. Pours an opaque black colour with a quick to dissipate tan head. Decent lacing. Smells strongly of dark chocolate, with a hint of burnt malts too. Taste pretty much reflects the smell, with just a hint less bitterness than you’d expect. Very well balanced. Overall an extremely drinkable beer, balanced and with a nice subtle chocolate taste. Love it.

McNeillR (1133) - SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Dusty chocolate aroma, like tearing open a sack of Milk Buttons. Expectedly dark body with a brown soaked head. Initially tangy, lactose carrying taste with a ping of bitter on the palate. Balanced sweet milky maltness to finish.

Very rare to have a chocolate beer without a coffee or a malt base without the arse falling out of the milky sweetness. Belgian angle helps, but they’ve done something special here. It’s all very one sided, but all very left-field. Get it while you can.

Bottle, Cornelius, Edinburgh

Rune (7948) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 7, 2012
Keg, half-pint in perfect condition at Craft Beer Co in Islington. Patchy surface, spotty lacing and a tan-coloured head. Dark grainy chocolate to the nose. Cocoa powder to the taste buds, small bite of lactose to it, finish off with roasted, bitter chocolate malt. Well balanced. Likable (London, 26.11.2012).

Delightful thick chocolate aroma unlike anything I have ever experienced from a beer! Wonderful thick and developed chocolate taste, bit of a rough mouthfeel but a lovely smooth multi-layered chocolate taste - this is an absolute stellar beer! Fantastic!!

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; pours almost pitch black thin head chocolate malt aroma, dark chocolate taste with heavy malt, nice carbonation with a slight gritty texture. I like it. Love the branding.

Cask at the Cask, Pimlico - 03/09/12. Dark brown approaching black with a medium tan head which soon thins. Milk chocolate nose with background vanilla. Sweet malt taste, cocoa, brown sugar, milk chocolate. Medium bodied, mininmal carbonation with a smooth finish.

On cask at Cask Pub and Kitchen. Pours a very dark brown colour with a fair light tan head. Aroma of cocopops, chocolate, roasty malt and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Lingering cocopops again. Tasty.
