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.

DonGregorio (156) - POLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Bottle. Pours very dark brown with average, long lasting beige head. Intense milk chocolate aroma with some cocoa. Taste of chocolate and cocoa, heavy sweet, and light roasty bitter. Light to medium body, soft carbonation. Rather thin texture. Chocolate stout indeed. Good, but not very complex and too thin.

hauxe (552) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2016
Pours dark brown from the bottle and leaves a tan, mildly foamy head that subsides to a creamy layer. Aroma is seweet milk chocolate. Taste is very sweet with milk chocolate and sugar dominating. Very light bitterness near the finish. Body is light - the beer has an insubstantial feel to it and very little depth. We are catering to the kiddies here and not the connoisseurs. Still, this is not an unpleasant brew, just a sort of vapid, guilty indulgence.

500 ml bottle from Alko Jomala. Dark brown with tanned head. Light roasted with coffee, light smoke and a lot of chocolate. Semi sweet with low bitterness and low carbonation.

PeteP (24) - Cornwall, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2016
Pours almost black with a deep tan dense head with nice lacing in the pint glass. Velvety chocolaty aroma with a balanced, sweet cocoa/vanilla taste and a roasted, bitter finish. Near perfect chocolate stout!

Fujimo2000 (131) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 12, 2016
Pours dark brown/black with a big chocolate aroma. The taste is big chocolate, definitely a sweet beer. Perfect for dessert.

cwill (79) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 5, 2016
Of all the chocolate milk stouts that Ive tried, this is the creamiest and most chocolaty. Smells like a Hersheys chocolate bar and taste like a mouth full of Hersheys kisses (sorry Im from PA and thats the best analogy Ive got). Towards the end the chocolate flavor dwindles and you get some vanilla, cherry, malt and hops. Full bodied and chewy mouth feel. Hands down the best chocolate stout Ive had. Absolutely delicious.

19Michi38 (92) - Cracow, POLAND - NOV 4, 2016
Piwo czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana kremowa przechodząca w beż, drobna, obfita, sporo czasu się utrzymuje, zostawia po sobie ładny lacing. W zapachu zarwno z butelki, jak i ze szkła, czuć potężną dawkę mlecznej czekolady i kakaa, ale w zasadzie, to nic poza tym. Smak to rwnież mocne uderzenie czekolady i kakaa, obok nich wyczuwalne palone słody i orzechy laskowe. Posmak kakaowo-orzechowy, goryczka niska.
