"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."

erickok (5696) - Leuven, - NOV 17, 2012
Very nice bottle design. Pours a darl brown body with frothy yet stable beige head. Lots of toffee, rum raisins, xwhite chocolate and clean yeast. A somewhat thin but fragrent and nice sweet aroma. Taste is similar but also has a herbal hint that annoys me a bit. Light bitter, longish aftertaste. Not the thick chocolatey experience I was expecting, but that just proofs my expectations were wrong - nothing wrong with this beer. Fairly drinkable, toffee beer. Bit expensive though. (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

Bottle. Very bitter dark chocolate and roasted or burnt malts combine in an unusual beer. OK. Drinkable. (2008)

Ritzn (991) - Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2017
Dark brown with little beige head. Aroma is chocolate, moccha, brown sugar, lacto. Taste is quite bitter with only a little milk chocolate sweetness. A little spicy and not so smooth with still ok drinkability. Not bad.

visionthing (5015) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 31, 2016
33cl bottle as a gift. Pours dark mahogany with a fairly modest beige head. Chocolate aroma is fairly intense and dominating. Malty and slighlty roasty with lots of dark chocolates, hints of vanilla and dark fruits. Medium sweet and rather chocolaty with a light bitterness. A bit thinner than expected, but a pleasant dessert beer.

theSlipperyPen (280) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2016
Deep ruby pour with a soapy brown grey head. Powdered cappuccino on the nose with a lactic sweetness. Dry ashy hops. In the mouth, its very much on the instant coffee and liquorice side of things, but quite one toned and cheap. Finishes on that lactic sweetness, which makes this one drink a bit like a milk stout. Overly sweet, forced carbonation seal the deal and its not one Im planning on taking up again.
