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."

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2016 330ml ; In a Tulip : This beer was better than I speculated it being ! as I chugged it fast I reflected within my mind that this shit had less generic chocolate nuance than Id reckoned . A nice bittersweet roast , dry chocolate emphasis .

Beer5000 (6133) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2016
330 ml bottle as Chocolate Porter @ Giddy Bridge, Southampton. Practically black body with a moderate sized, creamy tan head. Lovely aroma of dark chocolate that doesnt leave room for so much more. Flavor is sweet, but not overwhelming sweet dark chocolate, mild roasted dark malt and some bitterness. One dimensional but quite nice, there is some kind of balance here and the chocolate is safely at the dryer side of too sweet. Fine balanced body and long lasting, smooth chocolate aftertaste. Easy to finish the bottle, but would avoid another one straight ahead.

Linkiewitz (105) - Warsaw, POLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Aromat: Palone słody, czekolada, rodzynki w czekoladzie, malaga. Wygląd: Niemal nieprzejrzyście czarne, z dobrą pianą. Smak: No, kwestie pozytywne już się skończyły, teraz będzie tylko negatywnie. Piwo było okropnie, straszliwie rozwodnione. W dodatku żelaziste. Całość smakowała jak woda doprawiona gwoździem, łyżką kakao oraz rodzynkiem.

cmacklin (975) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 29, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours a clear brown with a red hue and a large, frothy, long lasting, beige head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of chocolate malt, roasted malt and vanilla. Sweet flavour of chocolate malt, roasted malt and vanilla with a slightly dry, bitter coffee finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and soft carbonation. Not bad.

WaddlingPlatypus (145) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
330ml bottle. Dark umber colour, pours with an off-white, somewhat foamy head. Aroma is of bitter chocolate, orange, and dark malts. Smooth texture, with an ever-so-slightly dry mouthfeel after the swallow. Could be a little thicker. The flavour is lightly burnt coffee, chocolate, and standard porter malt, but slightly weaker than would be ideal to appreciate the range. In all honesty, some of the flavour enjoyment comes from the aroma upon sipping. A good all-round chocolate porter; acquired for a mere 1.90, this one could be a good standard refreshment for the porter aficionado.

Black beer with a white head and a light smell of chocolate. As you might expect the flavour has a hit of chocolate too along with the malt. Sweet and rich. Nice.
