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."

foolberry (56) - New Malden, Surrey, - DEC 11, 2012
Very nice. Aroma of chocolate cherry liquers. Taste is nice rich beer but smoothed out with the chocolate. Christmassy - or am I only writing that because its nearly Christmas? Very nice to drink - although I imagine its not something you want to drink all the time. And I was worried it might be disgusting and Id have to throw the rest of the bottle away.

Lonick (1773) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Bottle @home, The I cant believe they voted for Trump tasting (Nov 8th). Pours black with a biggish tan head. Nose is chocolate, big milk chocolate, slight coca-cola. Taste is more of the same with a bigger chocolete kick if that was possible than the nose. Drank this many times before ratebeer.com, i liked it then and i like it now.

beeebon (410) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Bottle in Whetherspoons last night. Pours very dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma is quite interesting, chocolate (obviously), coffee, slight roasty notes and a slight hoppiness. Medium to strong sweet taste, quite smooth and noticable chocolatey flavour. A decent beer but not the best of the style

Bijl (318) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2016
Heel donker/Amberrood.. net nog licht doorlatend, crmekleurige schuimkraag...snel weg, iets koolzuur zichtbaar. Aroma: Veel Chocolade, donker geroosterde mouten, vanille, mokka. Smaak: Eerste slok is heel veel donkere en bittere chocolade die langzaam overgaat in mokka en koffie. Bij de tweede slok komen de donkere mouten, vanille en fruitige noten naar voren.... maar licht. Deze porter draait om choco, koffie en geroosterde mout. Medium body, medium koolzuur, licht bitter en droge afdronk. Verry nice!

Served in a Teku glass from a 330ml bottle. Pours very dark ruby-brown with a thick beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and dark fruits. Taste is dark fruits, vanilla, roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Medium body with medium carbonation, very smooth with bitter-sweet finish. Very nice, quaffable and interesting brew.

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!
