Very dark brown, with a beige head. Rich chocolate aroma with a hint of vanilla. Smooth milk chocolate flavor with a slightly bitter finish of dark roasted malt. This is a beer for chocolate lovers.

Dark brown beer with descent beige head. Nice sweet chocolate and malty aroma. Taste is full of chocolate and roasted malts, aftertaste a bit bitter. Carbonation is just right for this beer. Very nice sweet stout.

Bottle. Not sure why this is scored so highly. Sweet chocolate, little bitterness, smooth. Quite nice but bit too sweet and soft. Caramel. Much, much too sweet for me and was difficult to finish it.

Chocolate overload, but in a good way. Drunk whilst eating a big slab of chocolate cake, and it was delicious. Loads of powdery cocoa, sweet roasty malts, long sweet finish. Very much a desert beer, but great stuff.

mice (962) - FINLAND - JUL 31, 2016
Hyvin tummanruskea olut vaahtoaa reilusti ruskealla vaahdolla. Tuoksu vahvasti suklainen, kääntyen enemmän kuitenkin suklaakonvehtimaiseen hieman tekemällä tehdyn tuntuiseen suuntaan. Vahva tuoksu joka tapauksessa, ja siitä löytyy myös ripaus maitoa, vaniljaa, kookosta sekä minttua. Maussa suklaa edelleen läsnä, mutta ei niin vahvasti. Mukana myös makeaa maltaista karamellisuutta sekä maitoa ja ripaus vaniljaa. Todella makeaa tavaraa. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Aikamoisen makea jälkiruokapommi tämä on kokonaisuudessaan ja jopa itselleni siinä rajoilla, että meneekö jo yli.

Bottle into glass. Pours nearly black with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate with plenty of malt and a hint of hops. Taste is sweet with a long finish.

4.1
Bjammin (23) - - JUL 22, 2016
Big chocolate aroma and taste. Milky notes with a smooth finish. Could use a little more bitterness but a nice stout. Rich dark colour and keeps a good head. Quite light in body but it’s all about the chocolate.
