Chocolate overload, but in a good way. Drunk whilst eating a big slab of chocolate cake, and it was delicious. Loads of powdery cocoa, sweet roasty malts, long sweet finish. Very much a desert beer, but great stuff.

mice (900) - FINLAND - JUL 31, 2016
Hyvin tummanruskea olut vaahtoaa reilusti ruskealla vaahdolla. Tuoksu vahvasti suklainen, kntyen enemmn kuitenkin suklaakonvehtimaiseen hieman tekemll tehdyn tuntuiseen suuntaan. Vahva tuoksu joka tapauksessa, ja siit lytyy mys ripaus maitoa, vaniljaa, kookosta sek minttua. Maussa suklaa edelleen lsn, mutta ei niin vahvasti. Mukana mys makeaa maltaista karamellisuutta sek maitoa ja ripaus vaniljaa. Todella makeaa tavaraa. Keskitytelinen suutuntuma. Aikamoisen makea jlkiruokapommi tm on kokonaisuudessaan ja jopa itselleni siin rajoilla, ett meneek jo yli.

Big chocolate aroma and taste. Milky notes with a smooth finish. Could use a little more bitterness but a nice stout. Rich dark colour and keeps a good head. Quite light in body but its all about the chocolate.

Bottle, may 6th 2016. Black body with a small beige head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, candy, vanilla, mild roasty. Taste is sweet too, quite strong milk chocolate notes, mild bitter, with a malty and fruity finish, lasting chocolate aftertaste. This beer is all about the choco it seems. Nothing wrong with that.

samires (115) - POLAND - JUL 15, 2016
Dark brown colour with firm, beige and big head. Aroma is sweet coffee with lots of cocoa powder, chocolate, some chocolate cookies and brown sugar. In taste there is strong chocolate flavour, cocoa powder, reminds me of chocolate cookies literally, there is also hint of coffee with milk. Palate is smooth and creamy, low carbonation, medium body. I sense some metallic notes but its faint note so Im unsure. Overall nice, BIG on chocolate and smooth, maybe little to... bland, could use some bitterness to counter the sweetness. Other than that very interesting
