Poured a reddish amber with a frothy tan head. Aroma of roast malt and dark, bitter chocolate. Smooth, watery body, flavour of milk chocolate and roast malt with a bitter/sweet finish. A bit unbalanced.

Hand pump @ The Fat Cat, Sheffield. Black coloured beer with a small off white head. Strong chocolat sweeter malty hinted aroma. Medium to full palate. Finish is sweet bitter malty short almost veggy chocolat malty. Rather strange porter but enjoyable all together.

Flaska. Svart med moccafärgat skum. Väldigt mycket choklad (som namnet antyder) i både smak och doft. Men det är inte mörk eller ljus choklad, det är choklad som i chokladpuffarna på frukostbordet. Och det blir alldeles för mycket med en 0,5 liters-flaska. I smaken hittas svagt av lakrits.

[500ml bottle, the BeerHive, Edinburgh] Pours deep, dark brown with a thin off-white head. Reduces to a lacing after a while. Sweet, syrupy chocolate aroma, almost like cheap Easter egg chocolate, very milky. Not unpleasant though. Extremely chocolately on the flavour, sweet and very mellow. Unsure about the bitter aftertaste, it doesn’t sit well after a while. Maybe tipped some of the sediment in as well, I was trying not to. A good beer in there, let down by that unusually bitter, acidic aftertaste

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Deeside Drinks Emporium. It pours very dark brown with a beige rim. The nose is immensely chocolate, more on the milky/chocolate cake side than the dark variety....not much else, perhaps some oreos and caramel. The taste is chocolate, oreos, caramel, roasted malt, wood, light astringency and gateaux with some bitterness in the finish. Light-medium body and pretty much flat (a shame!). The smell is rather sickening after a while. Pretty one-dimensional and the condition isn’t great. Not for me. If you like the Sam Smiths Choc Stout you’ll enjoy this.
