Flasche 50cl. Schn trockene Nase nach Kakaopulver und einer leichten Schokoladense. Im Antrunk jedoch diffus bitter und laff. Nicht mein Ding, schade!

12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a moderate tan head. Aroma is chocolate milk with a little toffee. Taste is milk chocolate, sugar, toast, some vanilla, very light nuttiness, and just a trace of dark fruit. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Light mouthfeel; creamy but on the thin side. Very simple but highly enjoyable stout.

OMG, what a cocoa. Great beer. Not very sophisticated, just good stout, but this cocoa wins a day.

Foxbush (1942) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2017
18.7 oz Bottle from Krogers The sweet stout poured opaque b\black color with a tan frothy head and lacing. A good looking stout. The sweet aroma of chocolate and brown sugar greets you. The flavor is full of chocolate and dark brown sugar with hints of nuttiness and molasses. The sweet stout has a medium body with soft carbonation. This stout is sweeter than I normally would go for, but is well balanced and finishes nicely.

Bottle to snifter, shared with a hot broad. Pours brown, almost black, thin beige head. Aroma is heavy in cocoa bean, roasted nuts, raisin. Nice bite of effervescence on the tongue with a wonderful mix of chocolate, lactose and dark fruits. Excellent.

tanel025 (70) - ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2017
Smells like chocolate, a bit plums. Beige head, not long lasting. Taste is chocolate, blue plums, some bitterness mixed with sweetness. Medium sweet, light sour. Overall quite drinkable, yes its supposed to be sweet but maybe its too sweet and slightly lacks bitterness at aftertaste.

From bottle. Pours with nice medium sized and bubbled head with great retention. Aroma is of rich cocoa. Taste is similarly rich but is one dimensional and gets too chocolaty throughout the pint. Good winter warmer if you want chocolate and just have one
