86
Nose
Creamy and biscuity, with plenty of dark chocolate and some winey fruit.
Palate
Smooth and slick, with dark chocolate again to the fore. There's also some liquorice and a peppery warmth. This is a sweet beer but not cloying, thanks to the balancing roasted-grain bitterness.
Finish
A long and warming, dry finish of bitter chocolate.
Comment
Not as sumptuously chocolatey as you might expect from the name but an exceptionally good, deep ruby-coloured stout.

By Robert Millichamp

83
Nose
Aromatic roast malts and bitter dark chocolate dominate over sweet candy sugar and molasses with just a hint of piney hops.
Palate
Big roast malt and bitter dark chocolate notes interplaying well with warming alcohols and a rich syrupy backdrop.
Finish
Sweet malts round off the palate leading to more lingering roast malt, dark chocolate and gentle warming alcohols.
Comment
Nicely drinkable and the beer doesn't taste as strong as expected for its ABV.
