Draft on nitro at Good-Ta-Go in Chambersburg, PA. Served in a pint glass, very dark brown with creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, bready and light coffee note. Taste adds notes of vanilla, caramel, more of a milk chocolate with slight hop bitterness. Medium body, low carbonation (nitro), creamy, rich, soft with roasty sweet finish. Very nice chocolate stout.
Bottle from Morrisons, Birtley, Gateshead. Inky black with a thick tan head. It has a milk chocolate, vanilla and coffee flavour followed by an oaty, milk chocolate and roasted and red fruity finish. Very good. herrklemann (383) - Graz, AUSTRIA - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle. Small tan rim on an almost black body. Cocoa, dark chocolate, vanilla, nuts, some herbal hops. Medium sweetness, roasty medium bitterness. Medium body with a pearly carbonation. Adjuncts are not too organically integrated. Interesting. Wujas (11) - Ludwinowo Zegrzyńskie, POLAND - SEP 13, 2017

Pours deep black with tan head. Good lacing. Rich dark aroma of dark chocolate, a bit of vanilla and coffee too. Sweetness is pleasantly subtle, some bitterness balancing as well. Long complex finish which seems to juggle sweet, bitter and dry all at once. Medium bodied, above average carbonation. A delicious Stout, and a great dessert beer. danrowland (15) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Bottle. Pours a dark, rich black with huge 3 finger head that lasts really well. Carbonation steadies as you drink but serves a laced shaker and a great palate that combines smooth and creamy layers but doesn't turn flat. Aroma is mocha and sweet nuts. Taste begins with big fizzy kick of espresso but gently turns to lactose sugars and sweetness as it travels to the back of the mouth. Finish is actually roasted malts and slight bitterness but after taste is all dark chocolate like the name suggests. Overall a fantastic stout that balances the indulgent flavours of a sweet stout with classic textures of real ale.

Pours black with a thin tan head. The nose foreshadows sweetness. Its full of rich chocolate, while having lesser coffee and roasted malt. The taste is bitter. Additionally and more importantly, it is also extremely sweet. Overpowering actually. It begins innocently enough with a light sweetness. But its like the sweetness never recedes and the sugar keeps piling on. Halfway through this and I’m ready to move on. Chocolate aftertaste. Light in body, creamy texture, and almost flat carbonation. This one will make your heart skip. Steffan (98) - WALES - AUG 1, 2017
Jet black with a two finger tan head, long lasting lacing. Taste is of roasted malts, bitter hop taste but quite boozy. Bit of a chocolate hit in the aftertaste but it fails to penetrate the alcohol. Tried twice, first bottle years before seemed more chocolatey, perhaps I have a dud bottle second time.
