COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cold fermented and lagered. Only available in 330ml bottles.
"Porter style Ale. Chocolate and beer! Are we Mad? Wed rather say passionate. We marry the soothing flavour of this complex malt barley grist with a hint of dark chocolate. This is a beer for your more self-indulgent moments. Great for lazy afternoons or long evenings, it is best served chilled with your feet up, watching the sun go down. Like we say chilled."
"A silky-smooth suppertime beer, created using dark malts and chocolate. Pronounced vanilla notes fuse the chocolate and malts together to give a rich, warming, flavour that also works well as a complement to fruity desserts, summer puddings and autumn berries."

Biroholik (1173) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle 2 Snifter @ White House, Luton
Kolor - ciemnobrązowy, w pełni klarowny trunek z wspaniałymi rubinowymi refleksami. Piana beżowa, niewielka, drobnoziarenkowa. Znaczki na Snifterze umiarkowane, koronka wąziutka do końca pozostacje na szkle. W aromacie bomba czekoladowa zmieszana z nutami ciemnych owocw (ciemne winogrona, śliwki). Po chwili dochodzi do nosa nuta kawy Mocca. Z daleka delikatny karmel i ciemne słody. W smaku gigantycznie czekoladowe z nutami kawy z mlekiem, Mocca z czekoladą. Po paru łykach dochodzą do tego rodzynki, orzechy i przypalony karnel. Słodowość na pierwszym planie. W smaku i aromacie delikatne sugestie żelaza, za to spory minus. Poza tym cool. Początek intesywnie słodki, po chwili zmierza w stronę płwytrawnego finiszu. Goryczka średnia, ciało pełne, tekstura gęsta i oleista. Bardzo kompleksowe, intensywnie czekoladowo-kawowe. Klasa!

This is rated 3.3? really? Delicious chocolate. Sexy bottle Silky smooth. Velvet. Is this getting dinged because its Miller/Coors, or am I missing something? Delicious. I could drink this always. Thx BlackHaddock.

MelvinKalksma (1413) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque ruby/dark brown beer with a slight/medium beige/brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense and complex, but lacks balance. The added chocolate is too dominant and the roasted malts are only noticeable at the very end.

Antonio369 (191) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2016
330ml bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured a very dark chestnut brown with a two finger tan head. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, cherries, raisins. Taste: sweet dark chocolate (pudding), vanilla, raisins, walnuts, caramel, coffee, bread, dark fruits, licorice, lightly bittered. A light to medium body with a chocolaty light roasted and bittersweet finish. Pretty good, sweet brew.

tomer (3375) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - APR 30, 2016
At a tasting, thanks, small stable light beige head, clear deep brown color with red taints, a little odd looking, aroma of milk chocolate and caramel, flavor of milk chocolate that feels a bit artificial like Hershey, and also some caramel. Not too good, feels industrial.
