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.

DuchessOfIowa (161) - Iowa, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Rich and dark mahogany blackness with a thin tan head. Smells like a tootsie roll, which is good. Very strong cocoa notes, for myself very sweet on the malt and little much. A fun beer to bridge people over to craft just to be direct with flavors. CHOCOLATE TOOTSIE ROLL..so easy.

Bottle at The Red Lion, London. Pours pitch black with big creamy chocolate milk coloured head. Aroma is brown sugar, molasses, cocoa, warm milk, vanilla. Taste is very sweet with lots of chocolate, molasses, milk and some vanilla. Ends more bitter to balance sweetness. Medium body and good carbonation for the style. Really good stuff.

thirstyrabbit (1846) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 19, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown body with a reddish hue. Medium to small head for a stout. Aroma has sweet milk chocolate - its pretty natural and delicious, unlike on many cheaper chocolate beers that have a kind of powdery cocoa aroma/taste. Taste continues this smooth milk chocolate sensation that never starts to resemble cheap candies. Impressive. One of the better sweetened adjunct stouts that I can think of. Highly recommended, especially for people who normally dont like beer. [PS: Less talk about your sunken well and more information about the type of cocoa used would be appreciated, thank you!]

My "go to" stout. Could be a bit thicker but taste and aroma make mouth feel much less important.

colui72 (938) - HONG KONG - OCT 16, 2015
Delicious is the word for this! Dark brown/black pour with thin beige head. Aroma is dark malts and chocolate. Chocolate dominates its taste. Like a huge pour of fudge in a stout. Oh lord! Beautiful. Smooth, creamy, sweet and can t get ever enough! Gorgeous brew!

CurbDog (119) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2015
Big beautiful fluffy persistent airy mocha coloured head. Deep dark brown. Powdered chocolate, milk chocolate aroma. Rich cocoa flavour, dark fruit, very low roast, sweet, almost like a milk stout. Med-full body, med carbonation. Sweet finish.

Sweet mother of Neptune... THIS is one delicious brew. Chocolate aroma, chocolate flavor, smooth as all Billy Get Out, and how I wish Id purchased more than one bottle of this glorious stout. Ill be back for more. Bank on it.

Shanebrews (293) - Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2015
This beer is almost syrup. The aroma is thick with the cocoa, as is the flavor. The pour is dark and creamy with soft carbonation. The taste is chocolate and yet still beer - more chocolate than Youngs. The beer is very smooth and not bad, but a bit sweeter than I like.

Marduk (7474) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2015
355ml bottle. Almost pitch black color. Tiny size, fizzy head, stays as a ring. Sweet, massive chocolate, cake, some biscuits in aroma. Sweet, chocolate, biscuits, spicy hops in taste. Pure sweet chocolate cake in aftertaste. Fizzy carbonation. Yummy brew.
