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.

Bamaboy1975's rating

   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 20/20

A: Pours black into the tulip with 1-finger's worth of medium brown head. Lace is medium to stiff. Stays on the top of the glass, but slowly withdraws. S: Can I "capitalize" CHOCOLATE? Actually, it's nose is cocoa-smelling with a hint of coconut. T: Taste is tremendous. I can describe the taste as very meaningful chocolate taste without being overly sweet. I've tasted some chocolate stouts that really make your brain think that you're drinking a Snickers. This one you can taste the malt and just a bit of the hops, along with the CHOCOLATE. Truly a dessert beer. M: Feel is much lighter than the other chocolate stouts I've tried. It's a pleasure to drink. It doesn't overwhelm like it's competitors. O: Overall, this is an excellent beer, really decent when the snow is flying and you're all dressed up in flannel and bunny slippers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A strong aroma of chocolate, malt, some liqueur and cacao. The small brown fizzy head disappears fast, the body is black. A very strong taste of chocolate and cacao, nearly no taste of beer. The body is medium strong, very creamy with a soft carbonation. The rascal likes the beer very much!

Who knew something this good was just sitting around in the boring rack of beers with dust all over it? An organic chocolate beer that tastes like the fruit rather than the candy bar, and oh my is it terrific. Extremely clean. I could have had a lot of these, at the end of the day this probably tasted better than half the beers full of preservatives and extras. Very direct taste of chocolate fruit, like the infused the plant in a bottle. Impressive brewery. Very worth the try.

One of my favorite beers of all time. Dark, smooth, and exquisitely tasty, this brew tops my list of desert island drinks.

Dark pour and a ton of white foam that rides the beer all the way down. Barley, wheat, chocolate, coffee. Freshly roasted, tannin, wheat. Medium-thin body with sticky bite but more from the coffee than hop. Finishes barley, roast and cocoa.

Murrow (100) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours black, light tan head. Bright, sweet aroma of caramel and vanilla. Flavor is light and sweet without being cloying. Mild roast character. Mostly get sweet notes. Dark fruit, mild chocolate. Silky smooth mouthfeel. Easy drinking sweet chocolate stout.

Aragh (248) - POLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Kolor brunatny, piana obfita, utrzymująca się, oblepiająca szkło. W zapachu bardzo mocno czekolada i trufle. W smaku zdecydowanie słodki, intensywna deserowa czekolada, praliny, wanilia, śmietanka. Absolutnie brak jakiejkolwiek gorzkiej czy wytrawnej kontry. Średnia pełnia, nasycenie wysokie jak na styl. Bardzo ciekawe, ale jednowymiarowe.
