Yep, bit of chocolate but not as much as I thought. Wife disappointed but then where Iím concerned she usually is. Not very salty, which is good.

Aroma has some chocolate and some roasty malts. Flavour .... not much chocolate .... a bit ... but certainly not the most chocolately beer Iíve ever had. What ever, it had a great balance and a nice hop-malt roundedness that hid the high alcohol content.

Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a dark mahogany colour with a very slight reddish hue. The tan head was quite frothy initially, but didnít last for long. The aroma was unsurprisingly mainly of chocolate! When I bought this bottle, I must admit I was a little worried by the label, as it gave the impression that this beer was a chocolate lovers dream, but thankfully the chocolate was there in the flavour, but it wasnít dominant in any way. Iíve had chocolate beers in Belgium before and they are uber sickly. This was perfect. The dry hoppy pepperness went well with subtle notes from the chocolate to deliver a superb and very tasty ale. Another classic from Wales!

Beautiful looking beer. Big fluffy tan head. Matt black colour shrouded in a brown wrap.Not much on the nose but nice dry dusty earthiness in there. Maybe a bit of dried dark chocolate cake in there too. Faint fizz at the very end but not at all offensive. Probably the best most balance chocolate stout Iíve had in the UK in recent years.

Not impressed with this beer at all. Although it had good head retention and a nice carbonation the beer just tasted like a regular beer that had cocoa powder added to it.

BenH (3244) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle. Black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Taste of coffee and chocolate also. A tad thin in body and flavour and quite bitter. My least favourite beer from this brewery so far.

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 youíd expect. Very well balanced. Overall an extremely drinkable beer, balanced and with a nice subtle chocolate taste. Love it.

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, 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 theyíve done something special here. Itís all very one sided, but all very left-field. Get it while you can.

Bottle, Cornelius, Edinburgh
