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.

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

355ml bottle. Pours a dark dark brown colour with frothy beige head, not lasting very long. Chocolate-explosion in the nose. A bit creamy and very sweet. taste is except for chocolate also some spices in the background along with hints of coffee. also vanilla i find. really like it as a sweet dessert.

Pours dark brown/black with a beige head which leaves some lacing in the glass. Lots of milk chocolate and cacao in the aroma, very pleasant and intensive, doesn’t seem artificial to me. The taste is liquid chocolate (milk and dark), there’s some nuts and vanilla too, it’s a bit sour from roasted malts. The bitterness is rather low, roasted. The beer is smooth on the palate but lacks some body; still, it’s a great dessert stout and fans of chocolate should love it.

larsga (7539) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2016
Big beige head. Opaque black body. Deep, rich cocoa aroma with vanilla notes. Sweet perfumy rich cocoa taste with earthy chocolatey vanilla notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, creamy mouthfeel. Dryish fruity cocoa aftertaste with perfumy roasty notes. Very nice. In some ways it should be too artificial, but somehow it manages to work anyway. Lots of cocoa flavour. (0.355l bottle, from wine monopoly Triaden Lørenskog.)

Nurmis (677) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2016
0,5l bottle. Pours dark brown with beige head. Chocolate and vanilla are really noticeable, some maltyness to go with it. Really sweet, too sweet to be my favorite, but a quality brew!

Ktwse (4879) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Pours black with low tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, loads of it, vanilla, cocoa powder. Taste is sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, milk... lingering sweet and sugary finish. Light to medium bodied and smooth with soft carbonation.

Purchased as a single 22oz from local bottle shop. Poured with a creamy head, dark in color. A good bodied stout that reminded me of nesquik with it’s heavy cocoa and sugar attributes. Enjoyed from a large antique stein during some shenanigans. A good mix for fruit ales for interesting combos.

Opening note for this rating: I am only smoking about a tenth of the amount of cigarettes then just a week ago. My taste buds are now SHARP! And I can drink five, two, zero beers a day! I’m gonna save a LOT of money! You get a better rating from me...I save money! I’ve been up almost 48 hours straight now and I’m just now getting tired. Big bottle to my trusty shaker glass, pours BLACK to the naked eye. When I hold it to strong light just a tad ruby red shines though. As for aroma, loads of chocolate and dark roasted malts.The head was quick, no real lace or retention to note. It’s medium bodied, mouth feel is creamy and lightly carbonated. Finishes long. If you like stouts, you’ll love this!

From the bottle, poured to a glass. Velvety smooth with a true chocolate taste. Rich dark body, creamy tan head that lingers. Fantastic! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
