look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Very dark copper pour with a moderately sized tan head that slowly fades.
Aroma consists of mil chocolate, roasted malt, sultanas and just a hint of vanilla (it merges with the chocolate).
Loads of chocolate grain evident upon tasting: lots of nutty and toasty note with a hint of roasted grain but little of the roasty bitterness. Some light chocolate is apparent.
Good medium body, I would have liked it to be richer/creamier.

4.07/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Pretty much black, but a little less opaque than most porters. Poured one finger of head which reduced too quickly.

Smell - Strong, with odours of chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate.

Taste - Probably the most chocolatey beer I've ever tried. This will appeal to porter fans with a sweet tooth, but is a little lacking in flavour aside from the chocolate.

Mouthfeel - Fairly light, very smooth.

Drinkability - Anyone who can handle Imperial Stouts will find this very drinkable.

Overall - This beer might work well as an introduction to dark beers for someone who loves chocolate. Seasoned beer drinkers will also appreciate this as a beer with few faults.

This beer pours a jet black colour that leaves no head with minimal carbonation,it smells of pure rich cocoa,coffee and hints of vanilla,and on taste the rich cocoa,chocolate flavours are dominant with a subtle coffee taste in the background and it goes down very,very smooth indeed,i have never tasted a beer with such a dominant cocoa taste such a beautiful dessert beer that i will be buying again.

This pours deep black with a very slight beige head which doesn't hang around for long.

Did someone say chocolate? More than just a dash of the Dutch cocoa I expect. An aroma of sweet goodness. None of the vanilla is evident.

Wonderful chocolate bitterness on the palate. A little bit of coffee in there and a touch of the vanilla right at the back.

Medium bodied. Low carbonation. Good length.

Loved it. I'll be revisiting often.

A - Very dark brown coloured beer poured into a pint glass with a few centimetres of beige head that slowly falls away.
S - Sweet chocolate & roasted notes dominate the smell. The vanilla is there but is very subtle.
T - Again chocolately on the taste with a sweetish caramel taste also coming through. A very vauge vanilla hint also in the taste.
M - Smooth, medium bodied with a pretty low carbonation. Slightly roasty chocolate taste lingers.
D - A good beer that I'll be drinking again.
