355ml can. Pours an ink black with a beige head. Aroma: chocolate fudge, coffee, cocoa, brown sugar notes. Very pleasant aroma. Taste: chocolate, coffee, bitter cocoa, toasted malt flavours. Mild sweetness followed by a mildly bitter finish. Smells better than it tastes. Good but not great. lukecgrainger (8) - - DEC 1, 2017 does not count
On tap. Thick malty head. Ink black in colour. Beautiful full mouthfeel. Low bitterness and carbonation allows the chocolates taste and the coffee flavours shine

Like a designer cushion on a well made bed. Smooth. Soft. Round. Attractive.

330ml can into tulip. As ’Chocolate Coffee Stout’ 7%. At room temperature. Totally opaque blackness with a frothy tan-coloured head. Aroma of chocolate coffee creams, very sweet. Flat smooth mouthfeel, taste is bitter dark chocolate which carries over into the finish before a final touch of berries and coffee finishes it all off. Nice and understated. Alcohol not noticeable.

From a 330ml can, labeled ’Chocolate and Coffee Stout’, ABV 7%. Pours a deep brown with a medium head. The aroma features lots of chocolate and some coffee, as one might expect given the name. Flavour wise, there’s pronounced coffee and chocolate (both sweet milk and bitter dark), with a fairly assertive roasty bitterness at the back. The palate is slightly creamy and the carbonation moderate. This comes together really well, with a lovely sweet bitter balance, and real length and intensity. Top stuff. spotswood (2) - Soldiers point, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2017 does not count
Head looks too thin not creamy. The head is nice chocolaty brown colour but head disappears very quickly
Can taste chocolate and roasted barley first sip. Roasted barley a bit unpleasant. Not well balanced. Too much residual sweetness. Little to no lacing.
Carbonation too high. Its not viscous but quite thin.
Dissapointing, this is a very average stout. Because of the high carbonation it has a bit of a soft drink character.

Can - 7% version. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is just like a cadburys roses coffee chocolate, rich and sweet. Taste is dry coffee roast malt up front with a bitter dry coffee finish. Bit thinner than expected

5.8% ABV version tasted on tap at the brewery today, as well as the 7% canned version (BB 31 Jan 18). Both versions display a nice deep dark brown, with a longer lasting head on the draught version. Both have a huge delicious mocha aroma, really can’t wait to sample what it promises. The taste is equally as impressive - big milk chocolate and lovely super smooth roasty coffee, firm bitterness that doesn’t impose on the choc/coffee main event. Rich, medium bodied in the draught version, full bodied in the can, really creamy texture. Probably the best coffee beer I’ve ever had and incredibly impressive that there is no loss of flavour between the draught and canned versions tasted. Magnificent. mkel07 (6574) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2017
170317. I had a can of this beer at Wandering Cooks while I was waiting for an afternoon thunderstorm to pass. Everything about this beer is great - from the deep black colour to the smooth silky texture in the mouth and everything in between. Loaded with coffee and chocolate aromas and there is that bitter dark chocolate hit in the finish. A beer that ticks all of the boxes.
