Sjohnh (872) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2015
Nice to have a very chocolatey stout that isnt pumped up to the power of an imperial. It smells like drinking chocolate. Tastes like it too, and as described it is sweet, but you can tell it is the sugar rather than grain - in fact the malt presence is fairly well hidden. Very dark, with a small fading tan head. Medium body, with light carbonation. Too sweet to have many, but one is very nice.

JanEric (1203) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2015
Dark brown to black clour, minimal head, low carbonation. Aroma has cacao, dark malts. Taste is full of chocolate, sweet, and bitterness all around. Nice and special. Full body, medium finish.

Patersoi (163) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 26, 2015
Pours dark brown with a creamy cappuccino head that unfortunately dissipates quickly. Chocolate dominates the bouquet and punches you in the face when you take that first sip. Like a McDonald's chocolate thickshake, this is one to savour. Long lingering chocolate mousse finish. Sensational. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Congress, Longton. Pours black brown with a tan head. Very chocolatey which shouldnt a criticism in a chocolate stout but it is quite overpowering to me. Decent enough.
