3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark pour pour big tan head. Aroma of milk, coffee, leather, grain, caramel roasts. Tastes like heavily tannic coffee and chocolate. Very acidic mouthfeel. The bitterness is also out of control. Too much nibs going on here. Needs more creaminess and more body to go with the creamy flavors. Also is chalky on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(draught at brouwers cafe) near black, dark tan creamy head and excellent lacing. Nose of big vanilla bean, dry chocolate, citrusy hops, raisins. Rate is more citrus than one would expect, dry cocoa, vanilla bean, the bean is a little overwhelming and almost like extract. More of a vanilla beer than a chocolate one for me. roasty finish thats also a little bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium chocolate aroma. Beautiful dark brown, very fine persistent cream colored head with very persistent lacing. Starts bitter, finishes chocolaty. A little too light and frisky for the flavor profile.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Black, large frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Big cocoa powder on the nose.   Not much else.   On the tongue its light, in body & mouthfeel.   Straight up cocoa flavors, not really
malty, nor any real hop.   Perhaps a slight roastiness on the backside once the cocoa dies down.   Too light overall, and a little one dimensional.   Poop!   Nice cocoa aroma and flavor, but there needs to be more,
especially with the body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Provisions Market. Medium thick tan head. Cocoa powder and tootsie roll nose. Taste is really thin with tootsie roll. Weak body but low abv. Taste is just a bit weak given the chocolate dessert profile. Just soapy and watery to me. Sort of like fat free desserts, they are rarely good.

Draft at sb. Pours black with a dense and creamy tan head. Huge sweet milk chocolate nose. Creamy body that goes a bit too watery in spots. Roasty milk chocolatey mid palate. Long chocolatey finish. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Sweet chocolate, dark malts, light roasted malts, and not an overload of sweetness. Flavorful, drinkable, and delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours opaque and nearly black with 1 finger of tan head, leaving behind irregular lacing. Milk chocolate in the aroma, with roasty notes and some vanilla to boot. Taste is surprisingly not sweet - chocolate dominates, but in a "barely sweetened baking cocoa" kind of way. Roast, slightly chalky finish. Medium body, average carbonation. Overall: I really like this take on a chocolate stout/porter. Will definitely be drinking this again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours black with frothy light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, german sausage, smoke, roasted chocolate malts. Taste is very much chocolate, a blend between light milk chocolate and dark, 70% bitter chocolate. Very nice! Body is porter light and fresh with a distinct coffee bitter sting.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Maybe I’m just easy for stouts/porters to seduce, but this one was nice! 12 ounce bottle. Pours a murky brown color with a large beige head. A sweet nose of vanilla and chocolate. A rich mostly dry chocolate flavor with vanilla, dark fruit. Very mellow and drinkable.
