500 ml bottle. Pours midnight black with a large cocoa colored head. The flavor is huge on sweet chocolate with just enough hop character to keep it from being too much like chocolate syrup. Really really good.

Dark black but medium head. Clear roasted aroma of chocolate and caramel. Taste is sweet with light bitterness. Great stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - wow... sensational - perfectly balanced - sweet and creamy but not too much so - huge choc malt for the abv - great roast complexity - so easy to smash so satisfying - must get more...

Wow now this is a beer, dark colour chocolate stout done to perfection. Fairly sweet but not over the top, this is one the best beers going from possibly the UKs best brewery.

Bardzo dobry stout. Ciemna barwa, ładna piana. Czuć czekoladę już w zapachu, w smaku również. Słodki, ale nie czuć tego za bardzo w posmaku. Mało alkoholu, toteż trudno, żeby było go czuć. Mi smakuje, ale czuć, że nie jest to piwo z najwyższej półki.

The BEST chocolate stout I have had. Most chocolate stouts taste like stout with a "hint" or chocolate...THIS is more like chocolate, with a "hint" of stout. New to Trader Joe’s...found one...IMMEDIATELY fell in love, and got 4 more. HIGHLY recommended for anyone who likes chocolate stouts.

When it comes to Chocolate stouts, many make bold claims, but few deliver. Most Chocolate stouts taste like stout with a minimal taste of bitter chocolate in the finish. Well forgot those ones this is chocolate with a hint of beer. When opening a huge waft of sweet milk chocolate can be smelt from feet away. And the taste does not disappoint, it is what it says it is, Chocolate beer, like no other. Coupled with the organic factor this is a masterpiece of brewing knowledge. My only complaint is that 1 perhaps 2 is enough, after that you feel you have gorged on too much chocolate.

Piwo czarne, piana ładna, choć opada. W aromacie i smaku sporo czekolady, lekka kawa, troche mleka. Smaczne piwo, choć niczym nie porywa. Pijalny.

From the first waff off this Sammie you know it’s going to be a special beer. The deep chocolate chip cookie aroma rolls off the towering pock-marked mountain of tan head. On the tongue it’s extremely creamy and mouthfilling with sweet chocolate flavor. It stops just short of cloying, but is still sweet even for the style. It’s dark brown in the glass, and leaves lacy rings with each sip. Hints of vanilla coffee creamer creep in at the finish. A dessert beer without a doubt.

Bomber poured into a pint glass, pours dark brown, almost black with a beige foamy head, nice lacing. Sweet chocolate aroma with a tinge of vanilla. Taste is sweet malty with dried fruity notes, chocolate, vanilla and cocoa. It’s a nice stout, would recommend to friends!

W zapachu kakao i czekolada, to samo w smaku. Jednorodne, bez rozczarowania, lecz jednocześnie nie skłaniające do powtórki. Tyle.
