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.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Bottle to snifter. Pours an obsidian black color with a multiple finger beige head. Head reduces quickly enough to get a good sip. Aroma of chocolate syrup, dates, and roast. Taste isn’t as chocolatey as the aroma but still the main characteristic of this beer. Tastes like a 68% cacao bar leaving some bitterness in the mouth. Good.

Pours dark brown with medium beige head. Aroma is chocolate, milk chocolate, cocoa, chocolate muffin, sweet, light coffee, cocoa drink. Taste is quite same - chocolate, cocoa, milk chocolate, brownie, sweet, light coffee, small roast, light bitterness. Nice chocolate beer!

Middel til kraftig, ristet maltsmag, der balanceres af en grundlæggende sødme. Karakter af chokolade, toffee, karamel eller lakrids. En brændt note kan forekomme.

Almost pitch black with large frothy tan foam. Aromas rich, smooth and sweet with cocoa and milk (hot chocolate that's gone cold) with chocolate and coffee notes as well as light banana and vanilla touch. Palate, light/medium body with surprisingly thin-ish texture leaving nice dry cocoa finish. Taste, sweet-ish of whipped cream and cocoa and light coffee bean bitterness and dark chocolate. Overall, aromas absolutely fantastic, palate just like a soft drink and but tastes like a nice stout, just is missing that body and punch to it. Other than that rather nice, could even say it has alcohol free feel to it.

Ot ciasteczkowy potwór. Pity po polskiej wersji, nieco lepszy niż on. Czekoladowo-kawowo-ciastkowy słodyczak. Deser piwny do spożycia raz na jakiś czas. Jedyny minus to sztuczność aromatów ale nie bardzo rażąca i jak dla mnie akceptowalna.

W aromacie czekolada, w smaku czekolada. dość lekkie, ale mój ulubiony sweet stout...#teamsłodyczka

McSherman (669) - Aachen, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2017
dunkelbraun, fast schwarz mit hellbraunem festem Schaum. Geruch malzig schokoladig. Geschmack sehr schokoladig, fast schon etwas parfümiert. Malzig süßer Körper mit dezenter Bittere.

mariuspoenari (2954) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2017
Clear dark brown pour with a thin fine-grained tan head. Notes of cocoa nibs, chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, light hops, light metallic bitterness. Really easy to drink, medium body and carbonation, tons of chocolate in the aftertaste. Simple, clean, delicious.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2017 Sitting outside on a Saturday afternoon after a hard fought kids soccer game. Taste as you would expect a good chocolate stout to taste.

PugUglyBrewer (764) - - SEP 4, 2017
Black color with some dark brown around the edges. A creamy, khaki colored head of thick foam. Has a melted chocolate chip morsel and watery malt flavor combo that is a bit detracting, but it is still a good enough stout. Smooth and drinkable, just a bit generic in its delivery.

stoutporter (1) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2017 does not count
Akin to chocolate flavoured Coca Cola. Overly sweet and artificial tasting. Quite disgusting.
