Fantastic stout with a wonderful flavor. A treat & change of pace for stout and Porter lovers, as the flavor is very good, but I would have been more impressed had they not had to add actual chocolate to achieve the flavor.

This beer has a beautiful rich color. The chocolate overtones are not too powerful or sweet, but create a nice balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Top quality stout. Very good for those who want to venture into this type of beer. As it is easily found, and has a good cost / benefit, it serves as the first experience for anyone who has any discrimination with stouts.

Barwa ciemno brunatna, ładna, obfita piana. Aromat czekoladowo-kawowy, w smaku wyraźna nuta cappuccino, niskie nasycenie, całkiem smaczne.

Dark brown colour with thin tanned head, aroma of dark chocolate , roasted malt and coffe, taste of dark chocolate , lightly sweet, hints of milk chocolate, good bitterness and fine bitter aftertaste. All in all, this is a good stout.

Drank 17-06-17 in Stockholm at Thierrys after the BBQ. A bit neutral but chocolate is definitely present. Not bad but also not very good.

Delicious Chocolate stout. Medium creamy head, with very little carbonation. Aroma/taste: predominantly dark/milk chocolate and roasted malts. Rich fully body flavor and not overly sweet. Especially good in the nitro can (if you can find it).

Zlotta (3273) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2017
0.5 l bottle from ’Bier & Beer’, best before November 2017. Very dark brown to black with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of milk chocolate, hazelnut, mocca and vanilla. Slightly sweetish, malty, moderately roasty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, some hazelnut and hints of vanilla, followed by a short, moderately roasty-bitter, a bit earthy-dry finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice, but a bit too thin for my liking.
