"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."

330ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo. Shared with Finn. Fawn-coloured head, good glass-lacing, mahogany coloured body. Plain chocolate malts to the nose. Taste is like drinking chocolate milk. Semi-dry, sweet ending. Ok but rather dull and unvaried (Tromsø, 11.09.2012).

Bottle at home. Deep brown coor, good beige head. Lots of chocolate in the aroma and taste. For me this would be a nice beer at a dessert with vanila ice cream.

26-09-2017; bottle; at Jofel, Rotterdam. The looks of the beer are very nice. It looks like a perfect Porter. The color of the beer is an extremely dark brown, almost black. The beer is to dark to say anything about the clarity. On top of je beer a nice layer of almond colored foam is formed. Foam retention is avarage. After a while only a thin drape is left. Nice. The smell of the beer is nice. It has a good Porter aroma. There are a lot of chocolate aromas. I smell strong chocolate, which is clear and pure. Besides the chocolate there are nice aromas of caramel and coffee, but mainly chocolate. There is also nice touch of hops, giving some fruitiness, but he main aroma is chocolate. Nice. The taste of the beer is also nice. It is less chocolaty than the smell though. There are some flavors of caramel and coffee, but still the chocolate is the strongest. There are some slightly stronger hops. They give some nice fruity bitters. The beer is well balanced. Nice. The palate is fine. Full body, slightly sticky texture and low carbonation. The finish contains nice chocolate flavors and a nice hoppy bitterness. A very good beer, I like it.

Very bitter dark chocolate and roasted or burnt malts combine in an unusual beer. OK. Drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Colore scuro, schiuma compatta e persistente. Al naso malti tostati e cioccolato. Al palato predomina il cioccolato, caffè. Corpo leggero, con una carbonazione alta per il tipo di birra, dove il cioccolato predomina. Una porter che si beve facilmente anche nei mesi caldi.

Dark brown beer with thick beige head. Aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is nice sweet chocolate and vanilla with little bitter ending. Nice warming and enjoyable beer.

330ml bottle. Pours dark cherry with a beige head. Nose is like a room temperature hot chocolate with some roasted malts. Medium mouth feel. Lots of chocolate. milk chocolate. Perhaps a bit too much. Roasted malts, milkshake and milky coffee and a slight bitter finish on the taste. Decent.

Enjoyed a bottle at Bistro L’Autre Oeil, Aylmer. Pours a thin brownish foamy head but goes away after a bit. Has a very dark brown appearance. Ok lacing. Nice mild aromas of chocolate and dark roasted malts and light vanilla notes. Flavours of mocha, chocolate and roasted malts. Some notes of caramel and a bit of vanilla in the finish. Medium retention. Wet mouthfeel, light creaminess. Very good. :)
