Brewed with well water (the original well, sunk in 1758, is still in use with the hard well water being drawn from 85 feet underground), the gently roasted organic cocoa extract impart a delicious, smooth and creamy character, with inviting deep flavours and a delightful finish - this is a marriage of satisfying stout and luxurious chocolate.

rostetti (354) - Oulu, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle from Alko. Pours black with small tan head. Aroma and taste have vanilla and a lot of chocolate. People who dont normally like beer, will probably like this one. This would work perfectly as a desert, it is very sweet. Liquid chocolate.

LomYst (879) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2016
fantastische subtiel, maar zeer aanwezige chocola, ook zitten er wat belgische (gist?) tonen in, en zelf iets raars fruitigs? zeer interessant... melkachtig mondgevoel, erg lekker

Tommygun453 (40) - California, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Pours a dark chocolate color with small foam head. Aroma is mostly of chocolate, vanilla and caramel. Taste starts off with the bitterness of the hops and then the sweet taste of chocolate and vanilla come after. A well brewed chocolate stout. It may be too sweet for some people.

Pure chocolate, might be even to much- smells already slightly artificial, but still really enjoyable! Additionally vanilla and already sweet in the nose (like hazelnut spread). Great beer instead of desert!

PhilosophyGuy (582) - Łdź, POLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Cż to za piwo! Piękny kakaowy aromat przywodzący na myśli mleczną czekoladę. W smaku połączenie mlecznej czekolady z czekoladą deserową i nutką kawy. Wysycenie niskie, całkiem spora pełnia. Ładna piana choć szybko się degeneruje. Bardzo fajny balans. Goryczka niewyczuwalna. Słodkie. Bardzo mi się podoba!

Hard to escape the Tootsie Roll aroma, which is unfortunate because it makes the stout seem inexpensive and not very serious. It pours beautifully, though, and the medium body does have nice hints of bitterness (though it is overwhelmingly sweet on the finish). It thought it had sufficient body to stand up to vanilla ice cream, so I poured a few ounces over a scoop and found it quite tasty.
