    It's raved about, but for me, it's an example of just because you can do a thing, it doesn't mean you should. It was alright, but I'm not sure why people have been falling over themselves about it.
    There are so many stouts that claim to be chocolate but many fail the taste test. The Triple Choc is certainly not for everyone but at least it lives up to its name.
    That it does - there's a very obvious chocolate aroma and elements of chocolate in the flavour, I guess it's just that I don't find it a particularly appealing flavour combination.

    Still, this what the Beer Bods experience is about, it's nice to explore some styles of beer and breweries that I'm unfamiliar with.
