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."

HenrikSoegaard (13828) - Randers, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2010
Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Red-amber colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Almost no roast notes. Some chocolate present. Light bitter flavor. No roast and only very light chocolate notes. Average light bitter finish. Week fruity notes. Not very sweet. Watery palate and a little too fizzy.

Bullit (4561) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 24, 2010

caesar (6974) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2010
Bottled. Clear brown color, short head. Aroma of milk chocolat rather than dark chocolat, koetjesreep, some malt. Milky chocolat taste, quite sweet. Not the best of porters. Clearly lacks some roasted malt or coffee. The chocolat makes it way too sweet.

kwik-lime (1865) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2010
UPDATED: APR 24, 2013 Re-rate - not sure why I was so down on this before. Great chocolatey aroma, good chocolate character with malt, vanilla and a surprisingly dry finish. Nice beer.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
Thanks to mat7215 for the bottle. Pours a transparent brown with a small head. The aroma screams chocolate with little else there. The flavor has bitter chocolate, spice wood roast and marshmallow. Not bad, but a touch thin.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle, thanks again Harry. Aroma of artificial milk chocolate and some dark chocolate. Looks as dark brown as the coffee porter without the great head. Taste - artificial dark chocolate taste, does not mix well at all with some bitterness from the dark malt and thin body, too fizzy for this style as well. Not a pleasant linger. I made the mistake of having the coffee porter first - this is not even in the same class. A disappointment.
