culchiem (3621) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2014

garthicus (2915) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 29, 2014
This has been on my list of want to try for quite a while, glad to see the PH rolled it out for the festival. Appearance: Brown/Black with a generous creamy off white head. Aroma: A little chocolate/cocoa, roasty too. Flavour: initially sweet, chocolate shavings, a little bitter too with a good amount of roastiness, creamy mouthfeel with a long chocolate finish. Not bad at all.

Erzengel (8039) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
On Tap. Smooth-creamy. Easy to drink and still full flavoured. The truffle is in the mainpart nicely present, harmonises great with the dark roasted body. The aftertaste is smooth, creamy, coffee-malty. Milk chocolate, smooth, slightly roasted.
Great beer! --> 12/13/13/12

drk (3) - - MAY 8, 2013 does not count
Expected to be too sweet, but pleasantly surprised. Chocolately on the nose, bold but not bitter aftertaste. Almost like an alcoholic "affogato"! Wouldnt drink it all night, but great for one or two.

Creedence (287) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2013
Draught at Porterhouse Cork. Pours a chocolate-brown/black with an inch cream head. Aroma of milk chocolate, sweet coffee and toffee. Very light cocoa bitterness followed by a strong chocolate sweetness. Very sweet finish, smooth, creamy and thick-bodied. An outstanding desert stout, just perfect.

Deu (948) - Nantes, FRANCE - JUL 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 On tap at the porterhouse central in Dublin. Strong chocolate truffle taste no coffee. Really Nice. Interesting and different from other chocolate stout. A little dry at the end. I recommend

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle from El Nido. Reddish-tinted brown with scattered lacing. Smells like a box of chocolate dusted with cocoa powder, and some of the chocolates are filled. Thin but really drinkable. Balanced. Definitely veers towards the chocolate candy end of the spectrum and chocolate flavorings as opposed to what would be more satisfying chocolate malt but is still nice.
