SarkyNorthener (5012) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, - NOV 16, 2012
[email protected], wolverhampton. Black with small head. Aroma of cocoa powder. The taste is the best part, feels like I am drinking chocolate with a touch of coffee. Palate is medium to full body. An excellent stout, the best I have had so far.

GreenCat (214) - SLOVENIA - DEC 25, 2017
0,5 l bottle. Pours dark brown with minimal quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma of cocoa, chocolate and roasted malts, a hint of coffee and some earthy tones. Taste is light sweet, complemented with medium bitterness from hops and roasted malt. Body is light to medium, texture is slick. Aftertaste is bitter cocoa and long after that comes coffee too.

ogivlado (8316) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 12, 2017
Bottled 500ml. -from Pivoljub Ljubljana. Pitch black coloured, small to medium sized tan head, chocolate in the nose. Light roasted malt, chocolate mousse, light nutty notes and bitterish hoppy but unfortunately too watery. More body please.

Marko (6285) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 1, 2017
Bottle. Black I guess. Chocolate and light nutty notes in the aroma, chocolate dominating the taste as well, with some very light herbal hoppy touches. This is simply put a well executed, tasty chocolate beer that I know many people, not even beer geeks would love!

MarkoNm (3011) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - NOV 13, 2017
Pours pitch black, topped with a medium small beige head, slowly settling. Pleasant and quite intense dark chocolate note with slight roast and cocoa. A hint of rum cake presence in the nose. Taste is dark hocolate with slight roastiness in the back that gets more noticeable in the aftertaste. Slight sourish grainy touch, but way in the back. Medium bodied, silky texture. A real chocolate bomb, as promised.

Cask at the globe. Black with a weird bubbly foam. Scent is cocoa nibs and light sour properties from the cask. Taste is consistent. Lovely cask ale with cocoa nibs. Quite mild. Great.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2017 Cask. Dark black with tan foamy head. Aroma and taste of dark chocolate, nuts, caramel, roasted malts, coffee. Smooth, creamy. Light carbonation. Great!

3.3
BeardedAvenger (1266) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2017
Cask at Rose & Thistle, Frimley Green. Malty choc aroma - Horlicks. Dark, with cola brown tints. Fluffy beige head. Initially sweet before gaining some bitterness into the finish. Hints of both milk and dark chocolate, alongside coffee. Surprisingly thin and light. If a tad creamy. Soft carbonation. Astringent finish. Fine but doesn't do too much for me. The xhoc gets a bit lost by the finish.

3.8
klm1 (1920) - Bled/SF, - OCT 11, 2017
Pours oily dark brown with light brown/beige foamy head. Aroma: intense malt profile, with notes of dark & milk chocolate, cocoa, nutts, toasted toffee...flavor follows aroma; malt profile with notes mentioned above, supportef by earthy, floral hop profile. Hop bitterness is medium. Finish slight dry, bitter. Body is light to medium, texture smooth, carbonation is moderate.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2017 Source: M&S (Bottle) - chilled Expectations: a chocolatey stout Were expectations met: Yes Findings: As you get close to take a sip - you stop and inhale this chocolatey aroma. It tastes of dark chocolate - like Bourneville. Its got nice chocolatey and milky after-flavours! And Truffles too! And it comes in a good sized half litre bottle :o) Would I drink this again: Yes - already am :o)
