ArtificialCyst (1021) - Szczecin, POLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Aroma: Intensive milk chocolate (bit like those cheap ones), cocoa, something bit hoppy, smells very sweet. Appearance: High creamy head, decent black color. Taste: Strong milk chocolate taste with roasty finish and bit of lightly lingering tobacco bitterness, a little bit watery, sweet. Palate: Finish is moderately sweet, carbonation is definately too high, body is medium-low.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2016 Intensywny aromat mlecznej czekolady, trochę pralinek i wanilii. Piana obfita, bardzo ładnie oblepia szkło. W smaku nie jest bardzo słodkie, oprcz czekolady wyczuwalna jest też kawa i nugat, brakuje trochę paloności, fajny gorzko-czekoladowy finisz. No i bardzo ładna etykieta!

WaddlingPlatypus (186) - Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2016
500ml bottle at the Swan and Three Cygnets, Durham. Dark red with a fine off-white head. Curious synthetic aroma of strawberry mixed in with sweet caramel (I liked this, but I suspect this will be a point of contention). Flavours of cinder toffee, sweet caramel, and slightly burnt coffee vie for dominance, with an overall sticky mouthfeel of sweetness.

Parmenion777 (241) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2016
It pours a deep black colour with a frothy creamy beige head. The aroma is sweet chocolate (cocoa powder) and a hint of vanilla. A smooth sweet chocolate flavour, slightly creamy and a very mild sweet bitter finish. This is a bit too reliant on sugar and cocoa powder.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours dark brown to black with a nice tan head and some lacing. The aroma is cocoa and some dark fruit. The taste is cocoa and hints of fruit. I liked this. There was something about the taste that seemed off though. I wanted to like this more.

ChiGuy68 (589) - Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2016
Tasted from a 550mL bottle. It poured a deep, clear, reddish-brown with a thick frothy beige head and streaky lacing. Sweet chocolate and roasted malt aroma with a matching flavor profile. Smooth and creamy. This would be one excellent dessert stout.

Stultus (147) - ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2016
Pours black with a thin tan head that recedes quickly. Aroma is very sweet - a strong smell of chocolate. Taste is sweet with a hint of cocoa and a medium lightly bitter-sweet finish. Soft body, light carbonation.

12oz bottle shared by John. Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is cocoa powder! Reminds me of making hot cocoa as a kid. With marshmallows too. Flavor is about the same, nice chocolate thats not too sweet, not too bitter. Good mouthfeel too.

Ruikt ook naar toffee. Wel mooi! Grappig, weer best fris voor een stout. Lekker eigenlijk!
