Black with a dense lasting tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate and kahlua. Definite chocolate flavor, although it seems artificial - suspect some kind of chocolate extract is used.

Echon (515) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2017
Black. Roasted barley and chocolate in the aroma. Lightly sweet taste with light chocolate flavour and a dry and moderately bitter finish. Medium body. Overall, a decent stout. Solid aroma. Only lightly full, it lacks sweetness and chocolate flavour. Samuel Smith’s Chocolate Stout is a much better choice.

DonGregorio (314) - POLAND - MAY 14, 2017
Bottle. Black colour, average tan head, ok duration and lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate, dark chocolate, roasted malts, dark bread. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter, chocolate, dark bread, cocoa, roasty. More roast and cocoa in aftertaste. Medium- body, average to lively carbonation, rather thin texture. Too thin and with too high carbonation, but flavourful. Decent stout.

Barwa prawie czarna, beżowa piana. W aromacie a jakże, czekolada. I to jeszcze mleczna. Kawa, trochę orzechów. Dosyć wodniste.

BrewWhatIWant (165) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017
Pours opaque dark brown with a decent tan head. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is slightly bitter with notes of roasted malt, cacao, and a hint of dark fruit. Body is fairly light and carbonation is low-medium. A really good stout, not too roasty, not too sweet, but full of flavour

Krāsa melna, ar brūnganu toni. Aromāts viegli šokolādīgs, tumšie karameļu iesali. Garša pavisam nedaudz saldena, tumšās šokolādes toņi. Ķermenis vidējs, krēmīgs, zīdains. Viegla apiņu rūgtums pēcgaršā. Pietiekami viegli dzerams alus priekš šāda tumšā alus.
