COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A robust and smooth chocolately stout brewed with fair trade Peruvian cocoa powder, lactose (milk sugar) and a touch of flaked oats. With an inviting aroma of dark chocolate and a silky smooth unfiltered malt body, this unique stout is the perfect winter treat.

Leighton (13826) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2015. Pours deep brown with a creamy tan head. Sweet, with sugary dark malts, milk chocolate, low bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sugary milk chocolate finish, some dark fruit accents. Fairly simple but tasty enough.

Theydon_Bois (12569) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, thanks to the Wingman, 24/01/15. Black with a decent tan covering. Nose is dark malts, chocolate biscuit, molasses, dark berry infuse. Taste comprises a rich malt base, dark fruit rinds, dark chocolate, caramel fudge. Medium + bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Solid sweet stout action.

imdownthepub (11284) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to WingmanWillis for this one. Very dark brown with cream head. There is a milky creaminess to this along with a sweet chocolate character, milky rather than dark chocolate to me. There is a malty bitterness later on. Not really to my taste this one.

Sammy (9442) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
Decent stout, in can at Stouts. Good balance between sweet and bitter, though nothing extraordinary in either. Smooth mouthfeel, good drinkability.

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2012
Cask. Deep black pour with a tight white head. The nose is fairly chocolatey with some grassy/herbal flavour. A little bit of light sweetness and a touch of lingering light chocolate flavour. It doesn’t come across as terribly milk chocolatey but it’s okay.

Scopey (8791) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle at the Cotteridge Convention thanks to The Wingman. It pours jet black with a small tan head. The nose is sweet, juicy, chocolate, gateaux, lactose, cream and vanilla. The taste is smooth, bitter-sweet, toasty, roast, milk chocolate, light spice, earth, lactose and mild acidity. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very nice balance and high drinkability. Tasty.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 2012-11-23. Quick notes. Les chocolatey than I remember. Pleasant relatively dry roast character. Smooth average plus to medium bodied palate. Chocolate comes out more as it warms up. Enjoyable. Can shared by Tupalev

2012-09-14. Dark black body, tiny brown head if you swirl it enough. 3+ Modest aroma, dryish cocoa, light roast, muted fruity accents. 6+ Flavour is also milder than expected, finishes dry, mild cocoa and roast. Alcohol is not strong on the tongue, but leaves the mouth lightly tingly, light fruit comes out as you go, not super chocolaty. 6+ Smooth medium to full bodied palate needs more carbonation. Okay, shows potential. On cask at C’est What Festival of Small Breweries

Ferris (7555) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft - Dark roast, dark chocolate and some nice molasses. Jet black with a rich brown head. Little bit of molasses and booze, dark chocolate and a sweet boozy finish. Not bad, but booze dominates.
