3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours brown-black with a medium beige head that recedes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate malt and grain. Medium body with flavors of bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt and slight hops. The finish is roasty with a short chocolate malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall, I was honestly expecting more out of this one.

This is chocolatey, but I donít really see the fudge. Just a typical sweet stout. Nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a small light tan head. On the aroma, it really does smell like chocolate fudge, also with some dark fruit. Flavor is much more led by roasty coffee, with some slightly sweet chocolate. The fudge didnít quite make it all the way to the flavor, but it still turned out very well, even if not exactly as promised.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a Dark brown that is opaque and has a thin brown head that did not last in the glass. The nose is light with notes of rich dark chocolate, vanilla, and well roasted malt. Taste is bitter dark chocolate with light notes of well roasted malts. smooth, almost weightless on the palate, creamy low carbonation and thin, falls off in the back. Chocolate and roasted malts are pretty much everything here, interesting beer I would drink this one again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the Hopcat. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts and mild chocolate. Thin bodied libation misses the mark. Roasted and dark malts with very faint chocolate. The name sounds appealing but the brew just isnít very good.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2010 Bottle,
has an opaque Black-brown pour with hardly any bubbles at all for a head, and a bunch of particles float to the top of the drink, the beer looks unappetizing with all of the chunks at the top of the beer, there was a loose coating of sediment on the bottom of the bottle,
the aromas consist of milk chocolate, roasted malt,
there are flavors of over roasted/burnt malt, chocolate with an off-bite and flavor in the drink, and a bit of vegetable after the finish, maybe some lactid milk flavor that tastes like it has gone bad?
also, I think I sense a little alcohol in this beer to which is not good for a 5.5% alc. brew,
mouth feel is thin and watery, this beer is not smooth at all, it appears there is lack of carbonation,
not much of a nose and the flavors are a mix that just did not work out,
this comes across as a mess of a beer, I had a hard time drinking it, something just does not mix right in this beer,
I was really hoping to have a treat with this beer, I love Sweet Stouts, but this is not it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black pour with brown edges and a very short lived, minimal head. The aroma is roasty with lots of metallic spiciness and some chocolate fudge notes. The flavor is also mostly roast with a noble hop spice, metallic again and some sweet chocolate fudge on the back end. The body is oily and medium full with some tingly carbonation.
