500ml bottle. Very dark amber pour with a thin caramel head. Sweet and creamy aroma with a hint of dark malts. Pale flavour of stout malts with cream and chocolate. Nothing special, but refreshing.

jamestulloch (3582) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Bottle from Sainsburys. Dark brown body with a thin cream head. Faint lacing. Aroma of hot chocolate, rust and Nutella. Flavour of cocoa powder and weak coffee. Thin to medium body with a watery texture. Light fizz. Very chocolatey but I didnt get much coffee flavour.

LazyPyro (656) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2016
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Pours a clear very dark brown colour, tan head which quickly disappears. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, malt. Taste: sweet chocolate, coffee, light roasted malt, hint of fruit at the end. Only a mild bitterness in the finish. Smooth oily texture, soft carbonation. Im a sucker for chocolate coffee beers and I really do like this one. The flavours seem real too and not artificial. The chocolate stands out more than the coffee and its a rather sweet dessert beer, personally I would prefer a little more bitterness in this, a darker chocolate perhaps. Id probably class this as a Sweet Stout rather than an English Strong.

Skarecrow (338) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 12, 2016
500ml bottle BB 12/7/2016 Well, this one certainly delivers what it says on the bottle. Sweet biscuit/Hot chocolate aroma. Pours deep dark brown with tan head. A very mild bitterness is followed by the chocolate (and lots of it) and a residual roasted coffee note. Excellent desert beer to have with Chocolate steam pudding or Chocolate Mousse. Nice.

DanielBrown (4393) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle - a gift from Uncle Phil - cheers! Definitely a sweet beer, enormously chocolatey in fact. Grainy texture and tooth eroded satisfaction. Fairly pleasant and saved, I reckon, by its good alcohol levels, which provide warmth.

One for the sweet tooths. The aroma tells you exactly what youll get: chocolate, and lots of it. A touch of vanilla and, as for the coffee, I only noticed a slight under-extracted astringency peeking around the edges of the totally dominant bully-boy belgian chocolate. Well made, but I prefer a bit more bitterness with my chocolate.
