On tap at rogue Newport - nice frothy head. Think creamy hot chocolate! Perfect stout to finish the meal with.

Euston Tap. Opaque black - brown beer, little tan head. Palate is silky smooth with nice fine carbonation. Mild minerals and errr yeah - chocolate! Dark chocolate, chocolate gateux cream and chocolate wafers. Creamy dark chocolate! Finishes smooth and silky with a little carbonated nip. Slightly maltesers aftertaste. Pretty bloody good. I bolted this one!
A: Wow, this looks inviting. Pours absolutely jet black with no light peeking through whatsoever. Rocky khaki to light brown head leaving beautiful, elegant lacing on its way down.
S: Dark fruits (plum, blackberry), baker’s chocolate, caramel and toffee, a hint of coffee grinds.
T: Mimics the nose--dark fruits, mostly plum, with a healthily competing dark chocolate kick and a little punch of espresso bitterness that lingers on the finish.
M: Slightly less full-bodied than the appearance and aroma would suggest but nice and smooth.

Delicious. Rich and chocolaty taste as you’d expect, with a bitterness and coffee on the finish. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Poured from the bomber. OMG, dark chocolate aroma and flavour. This is dangerous! Finishes bitter sweet. Amazing!

On draft at The Hop. Loads of chocolate flavor in this beer - they weren’t kidding about that! A little brandy too. Nice! after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2012
22, in the annoying super-bright-red bottle. Pours buh-lack with a dense and creamy dark tan head. Lots of drippy lace. Enormous dark chocolate and cocoa nose, heavy and sweet and forward. Intense. Creamy thick body with sluggish carb. Dark chocolate and cocoa reverberate all over the mid palate. Intense and powerful, but short of being problematically cloying, as long as you’re in the mood for something this big and intense. Not as goopy or sticky or syrupy sweet as Choklat, for sure. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 16, 2012
(750ml thanks Steve!) deep espresso brown. Thick Brown Creamy head. Nose of rich chocolate, milk, graham cracker, marshmallow. Taste of chocolate wafers, roasty, thick body, nice linger. HopTsing (575) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2012
From the bottle poured a very dark brew with a very dark head.Aromas of malt, lots of chocolate, roasty malt, and hops. Flavors are double of the aromas. I loved this brew. GL2814 (361) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Pours dark like motor oil, with a thick beige head. The aroma was that of a YooHoo. Chocolate notes definitely came through, although there was slight bitterness to it as well. A really great chocolate stout.
