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

adamnase (467) - Kronoby, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2017
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, doesnt seem artificial to me. The taste is liquid chocolate (milk and dark), theres some nuts and vanilla too, its a bit sour from roasted malts. The bitterness is rather low, roasted. The beer is smooth on the palate but lacks some body; still, its a great dessert stout and fans of chocolate should love it.

larsga (7375) - 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 Lrenskog.)

Nurmis (496) - 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!

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 its heavy cocoa and sugar attributes. Enjoyed from a large antique stein during some shenanigans. A good mix for fruit ales for interesting combos.
