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. Imaena (2315) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - MAY 2, 2013
Draught @ Porterhouse. Too sweet for my liking not something I will go back to. Psytron (2238) - Turku, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2014
Smell of chocolate, cocoa. Dark brown colour, light brown head. Strong aroma of cocoa, chocolate. Also some licorice to be found. Mildly bitter, sweet. Slightly dry texture. Too strong chocolate flavour. Dfonorow (2216) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 14, 2015
On tap at Porterhouse Central. Pour is deep brown with a medium tan head. Aroma and flavor of dark caramel, chocolate, toffee, burnt sugar, and anise. Finish is sweet with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Someone had a lot of fun with this one. Tons of chocolate throughout the brew. Color, aromas, taste. A clean, black brew with a healthy head on it. Cocoa, boxed chocolates, bittersweet chocolate shavings -- all those components are discernable, which is quite a feat. Sweet finish, oily and viscous on the tongue. A unique sweet stout that emphasizes its key ingredient. LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - MAR 16, 2008
Straordinario l’aroma, proprio cacao senza alcun segno di femminea dolcezza burrosa, si beve al posto del dolce e possibilmente riempie di più di esso. Deliziosa, da bere senza fretta, parlando delle imprese di Pirro. thepegjett (1260) - Cambridge (via Winnipeg), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2012

Draught. Pours pitch black with a dense foamy white lasting head. Aroma is all chocolate, like a chocolate milkshake. Taste is of milk chocolate, vanilla. Sweet but not overpowering. Really enjoyable. ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 24, 2014
Draught at Porterhouse Central. Big black brown pour, high nitro stout head. Gorgeous milk chocolate nose. Massive chocolate flavour too. Light body, light on the palette. Bit of bitterness in the finish. Mellows as you drink it. Very different, very nice.
