Väldigt mörk brun öl med krämig ljusbrun skumkrona. Doftar choklad, kaffe, malt. Smakar i samma bana och är riktigt bra tycker jag. Inte alls någon överdriven sötma och en precis lagom beska. Lättdrucken utan att det sticker åt något håll. Gillas verkligen! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Chocolishus. Powerfull taste of cocoa and a hint of coffe and liquorice. The experience takes you back to Wonkas faktory for adults.

Aragh (76) - POLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Kolor hebanowy, nieprzejrzyste, piana drobna, opada do kożuszka, oblepia szkło. W zapachu czekolada i nuta paloności. W smaku wytrawne, nuty palone i wyrazista bardzo gorzka czekolada. Goryczka niska, szybko zanika, zostaje echo gorzkiej czekolady. Lekka kwaśność, podobna do kawowej.

찰스 웰스 브루 - 영스 더블 초컬릿 스타우트 5.2% ABV 비터 초컬릿을 사용했는지 커피류의 힌트가 더 와 닿는다. 내내 기분 좋은 비터 초콜릿향이 비강을 맴돈다. 무리하지않은 평타의 더블 초콜렛 스타우트 초콜릿 몰트 탓에 커피가 연상 됐는지 실제로 커피 첨가는 없다. 한국에서 여러번 마실기회가 있었지만 라벨이 심하게 구려 번번히 패스했던 맥주. 싼티나는 라벨에 비해 생각보다 괜찮다. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

Fajnie wywazone dobre pijalne piwo. Kakao i troche palonosci. Fajne, troche przypomina mi guinessa drought. Warto kupic.
