Pours dark brown with ruby edging and a thin tan head. Smells exactly like Cadbury’s Dairy Milk chocolate, with a wee hint of dark malt. Is incredibly rich in flavour, it is all milk chocolate - like I’m eating a block of it. It has quite a watery finish and a bit of fizziness too which really work to cleanse the palate and make you want to go back for more. Couldn’t get any closer to liquid chocolate if you tried - it even hides any hint of its 6.5% ABV.
Very bitter dark chocolate and roasted or burnt malts combine in an unusual beer. OK. Drinkable

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. Maits (556) - ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2017
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. radassace (370) - SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2017
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. AleRider78 (1383) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2017
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. :)

Clear dark brown colour. Aroma and flavour have an abundance of chocolate and vanilla. Not overly sweet though so it maintains a good level of drinkability.
