Cold fermented and lagered. Only available in 330ml bottles.
"Porter style Ale. Chocolate and beer! Are we Mad? We’d 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."

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 (1536) - 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 (206) - 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.

Bottle sample at a tasting, thanks Tom. Amber brown with acreamy head. Aroma of caramel, soy, coffee. Sweet and artificial flavors of cocoa, toffee, caramel. Medium-bodied, sitcky texture.

tomer (3517) - 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.

jjsint (3100) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle at Artisan Tap, Bedford. Dark brown, translucent with a sizeable tight light tan head. Coffee and blackberry compete with a metallic tinge in the aroma. Taste is sweet, rich and chocolatey. Velvety chocolate hit in the finish, alongside a surprisingly bitter hop note. Palate is quite thin, a bit of a letdown. Verdict: Meantime are getting a lot of hate recently since the takeover, and their beers can be hit and miss. This is really nice although... maybe not quite as ’authentic’ as I’d like...

Bottle at home. Pours very dark brown/black with a small tan bubbly head that disappears quickly. Aroma is chocolate, slight ash, roast malts, slight soapyness. Taste is big chocolate, slight coffee, ash, earthy roasts, slight dryness. Bit on the thin and carbonated side.

3.1
ndburns (190) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2016
330ml bottle at the Bank House. Pours dark brown with a light head. Aroma dominated by chocolate. Flavour is quite dry chocolate.
