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.

Mørke rød til mørkebrun med lite lyst skum. Lukter friskt vanilje. Smaker svak kaffe med en ettersmak av vanilje og lys sjokolade, kanskje litt for mye kullsyre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great tasting beer. It is smooth and has a great after taste. It is a little sweet but not unbearable. Great to sip on and relax. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b79turner (261) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - OCT 30, 2017
Bottle poured into a tulip glass, thin dark brown/black pour with a light thin head that quickly disappears. Nose is bitter chocolate and malt. Taste is very similar with a little bit of chocolate milk. This is not my favorite but still well done ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DraftDodger (1859) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2017
Copenhagen 29/5 2017. 55 cl bottle from SuperBrugsen. Cocoa beans on the label to communicate that these guys take the "Chocolate" in the name seriously. Pours clear deep brown maroon with a red hue and light beige head. Settles as thin layer of beige foam barely covering the surface. Moderate lacing. Aroma is intensely sweet. Milk chocolate, sugar and light hints of vanilla. Soft yet prickly carbonation and medium thick palate. Flavor is intensely sweet. Only very light bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet chocolate. On the verge of being cloying. The good news is that this beer actually tastes of chocolate. The bad news that it is not chocolate of the good, dark and bitter variety.

RW80 (2948) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2017
355ml bottle. Aroma: koetjesreep (read cheap sweet milk chocolate) Appearance: creamy head, on top of a black body. Taste: Milck chocolate, light roasty finish a hint of tobaco bitterness, and a hint of water in the aftertaste providing some lightness. Average carbonation, body is on the thinner side. Ok, but not as great as expected.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2017 Bottle. Pitch black with a thick slowly fading foamy light brown head. Aroma is of biscuits, toffee, chocolate, dark fruits, light coffee hint, nuts. Taste is of dark fruits, milk chocolate, caramel, biscuit, nuts. Oily mouthfeel, soft to medium carbonation.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2017 Awesome, vanilla and chocolate notes in taste, very enjoyable. Not overly carbonated.

3.7
smroush (311) - Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2017
Aromas strong of cocoa and chocolate with a little roasted coffee. Vanilla aroma is pretty pronounced; maybe a slight touch of licorice. Color is black with a medium sized light brown head. Sweetness is medium; bitterness average. Medium body; smooth almost silky mouthfeel; long finish that starts with cocoa and finish with vanilla. Overall a good stout - I like the cocoa and vanilla, though would prefer a somewhat fuller body.
