COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
Ingredients: Water; Organic malted barley; Organic cane sugar; Yeast; Organic hops; Organic cocoa extract; Carbon dioxide
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.

Bottled, pours dark with clear copper/brown/caramel highlights and thick , beige head, rather poor retention. Aroma resembles milk chocolate, some vanilla, fudge and those werthers original candies. Its really nice, but maybe too sweet. Some dark malts would be nice perhaps. In taste its all about caramel and sweetness, some very mild bitterness is also present. Well, on the one hand its a very interesting beer, but on the other I would probably throw up of too much sweetnees if I was eating a cake at the same time. Anyway, definitely worth trying.

By far the best beer I’ve ever had, smooth yet full bodied, warm and flavorful yet not too strong or sweet, awesome!

sawbuck (732) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Nice aroma of sweet chocolate, cocoa, and fudge. Ebony color with s dense tan head that fades slowly. Sweet up front, almost too sweet. Milk chocolate, and cocoa. Definitely a dessert beer. Bitterness cuts in but does not balance sweetness. Nice echo however after a few minutes...some coffee there. Slightly slick mouth feel, some chewiness from oatmeal. O.k.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2017 En positiv overraskelse. Behagelig chokoladesmag. Tilpas med sødme. Meget frisk smag.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Shibolet home-brewery. Thanks Josh. Dark brown with a tan head. Great huge chocolate aroma. Sweet flavor with chocolate, some malt. Medium-bodied. Flavor isn’t as great as the aroma, but still good.
