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.

VoodooBear (49) - San Juan, - MAY 10, 2014
Presentation: 355mL brown bottle with no freshness date anywhere, served in a snifter. Appearance: Pours a deep black color, no light shines through the glass. Theres a one finger, tan colored head and some very good lacing that covers the whole glass. Smell: Primary scents are of dark chocolate and roasted malt. Theres also some burnt bread notes and hint of molasses. Taste: Dark chocolate is dominant with some roasted malt in the background and a black coffee flavor as well. Mouthfeel: Its very smooth and easy to drink with low carbonation. It feels a bit light bodied and refreshing even, which is unexpected for a stout. Overall: A very well crafted beer that is very approachable. Popular belief is that non-beer drinkers should start out with lighter colored and less flavorful brews. This beer shatters that stereotype with its drinkability and sweet chocolatey taste. It is actually a best seller in a lot of places down here in Puerto Rico.

kaserov (486) - Oviedo, SPAIN - MAR 26, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2017 Color negro con capa de espuma marrn de tres dedos de grosor (muy cremosa y de buena retencin, apetece coger una cuchara y degustarla por si sola). Carbonatacin media tirando a mnima. Textura cremosa aunque algo acuosa para mi gusto. Aroma potente a cacao, muy dulce. Me recuerda a cacao puro del que uso para hacer chocolate con leche. En boca el cacao sigue muy presente, pero un poco menos dulce que en aroma. Alguna nota torrefacta y final muy mnimamente amargo. Postgusto a cacao de larga duracin. Muy rica.

TaxiDriver (1775) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2017
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.
