11.2 OZ BOTTLE. Pours dark amber with creamy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of bread crust, chocolate and ripe fruit. Body is full and crisp. Taste is of cacao, milk chocolate, earthy hops and bready malt. Finish is long, semi-dry. Nice, balanced brew with just right amount of chocolate. janubio (907) - SPAIN - JAN 6, 2013
330 ml. bottle. Pours a decent head, that doesn’t linger much. Amber colour, with beatiful shades of red and orange to the light. I really can’t find chocolate in the aroma, which is alcoholic, like a liquor, with vanilla and fruits. Medium body, thin palate. Taste is like a medical syrup, with chocolate, and fruits. It doesn’t seem to work for me... Beerbarella (348) - - DEC 29, 2012
330 ml bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a medium brown head. Malty chocolate vanilla aroma. Roasty, sour, bitter, vanilla taste. Roasty chocolate palate. Slightly bitter. beeracoon (511) - - DEC 29, 2012
Medium brown head. Clear mahogany colour. Wonderful chocolate aroma with hints of vanilla. The taste is a bit of a disappointment: Sour-bitter. The great cocoa chocolate palate unfolds slowly, yet intensely. Very nice. iwillplay (1) - Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2012 does not count
Good choc after taste although bland in the middle. Smooth start. Cod have tried it warmer.

Very chocolatey aroma. Rich chocolatey taste. Texture is a bit thin but overall it feels quite smooth and warming. martinrumsam (570) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2012

Appearance: Dark redish brown, clear. Some off-white head.
Aroma: Dark chocolate, also some fruits and malt.
Taste: More chocolate, but would go better with a stout than an ale. Pretty good, though.

Pours a cloudy orange with an off-white head. Aroma is malty, chocolate and quite fruity with some vanilla. Taste is also malty with more chocolate and fruit leading to a roasty, fruity and bitter finish. Disappointed to see this rated so low, I really liked it. ralphdot (1099) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2012
6.0% ruby red colour with a thin head.milk chocolate aroma, slightly sweet smooth chocolate taste, very nice.
