Porterhouse, Covent Garden, London. Smells really nice. caramel, vanilla, chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Palate is smooth, perhaps too smooth, thanks to the nitro, which was the only thing i didn’t like about this beer. Creamy mouthfeel, and as aarleks notes, a liquerish like quality, like Baileys or something. Some subtle roastyness in the finish. Really tasty, but would have been better if it was out of a regular keg (or even cask!!!), as the nitro killed it a little bit. Otherwise, no complaints, i had fun drinking a couple of pints of this.
2009-05-15. Very dark brown-black body with a creamy beige head and lace. Very sweet aroma of hot chocolate, and tootsie roll, touch of Ovaltine? (7+) Flavour is similar - Sweet up front, cocoa/tootsie roll like chocolate, but not so sweet as to be cloying. Light bitterness in the finish. Smooth average plus palate. Pretty decent. On tap at the brewpub. garthicus (2934) - 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. Psytron (2420) - 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. mcberko (18422) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2015
On tap at The Porterhouse, pours a deep dark brown with a slight red tinge and a small tan head. Nose brings out chocolate truffles - smells great. Flavour is quite rich, with dark chocolate truffles dominating. Smooth, fairly rich, and creamy on the palate. Finished slightly metallic. Very nice.

great to finally track this one down! Pours deep ruby Brown with thick grey-beige head. Dry dusty cocoa and red fruit nose. Moderate body, dry, quite tannic, low residual sweetness, bitter dark malt, vegetal hops. Pretty decent but not really worth the wait...
2017 edition in the hill, ranelagh
Drier, more cocoa, a hint of spice, a more rounded release than last year, score increased 2.
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. nimbleprop (8591) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 17, 2008
On tap at the Porterhouse on Nassau street in Dublin. Never has a beer delivered more directly on it’s promise than this beer. Pours a translucent, watery black with a soft, creamy white head. Aroma is sweet and chocolaty. Flavor is exactly like putting a well crafted chocolate truffle in your mouth, soft, creamy, slightly grainy, sweet but not overpowering with a touch of bitter cocoa. Soft, easy finish. PaulsPissed (37) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 26, 2009
A thick creamy chocolate stout, good chocolate aroma, goes down very well sweet taste with a slight bitter aftertaste. as you get to the end though the bitterness overpowers the chocolate taste making it a bit rough. stravale (3088) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - JUL 9, 2014
