This triple chocolate stout is a unique interpretation of the style, combining three different chocolate malts, cacao nibs and sixty three percent semi-sweet chocolate, creating a sinfully delicious brew. The addition of blackstrap molasses produces an earthy, caramelized tone in an already complex flavor profile. Itís creamy, milkshake-like mouthfeel earns this beer the reputation of being dessert in glass

Not quite as cocoa as expected. Plus has an odd aftertaste. Scent was great, thought I was getting into a super bev...not the same. I see why it is rated low. Tap.

Very nice molasses, dark fruit slightly tart aroma and flavor.  Taste is full flavored maybe slight watery but not much. Complex. Cherry dark fruit stout but not fruity. Woody almost.  Very nice beer.  ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured into a perfect pint. 3.25 A: Black color. Two fingers of frothy light brown head. Retention is lacking, but a short ring of lacing is left. 4.0 S: This smells great! The chocolate and molasses mesh with the roasted barley to make something special. It integrates so well. The lactose then offers a little twang to the mix. The powerful, yet supple roast is balanced by malty sweetness with caramel and even a touch of dark fruits. 3.25 T: Unfortunately the nose is much deeper and better integrated than the taste. Still, itís good, just not great. Moderate to heavy roastiness enhances the hop bitteness. The sweetness doesnít quite balance it out. The chocolate, molasses, lactose combo seems out of balance with the roast. Somewhat of an ashy taste on finish. Herbal and citrusy hops. 3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Itís creamy, but in a not creamy way. Itís hard to explain why Iím not a huge fan of this mouthfeel. 3.25 D: The nose got me interested, but unfortunately this beer falls just north of average.

Draught @ Coopers Craft and Kitchen. Inky black with creamy medium sized beige head, faint mocha aroma, low carbonation, full body, bitter chocolate taste with alcohol undertones, abrupt finish with bitter coffee beans aftertaste. Quite a complex brew, like a milk stout.

Does not deliver on anything it advertises and lacks any stout like qualities. So disappointing on every level. Not worth discussing.

Sour raspberry aroma. Appearance is brown with poor tan colored head. Flavor is oxidized and sour with muted notes of cocoa and raspberry. Mouthfeel is medium with medium light carbonation. Overall, the beer tastes old and infected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The label is quite deceiving.. I actually expected a deep chocolate taste or hints overall.. I got none of that . Iím not going to go into detail what the head, notes, complexion was .. because overall.. it doesnt matter.. this beer was horrible. Sad part is, at the store i bought it, the selling point was the fact that it said 98 rating on ratebeer. Quite disappointed. Never again

Christpuncher (2280) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Average stout at best. Super carbonated and very thin in flavor. Has a very malty flavor. Not much in he means of coffee or roasted malt flavor. Pours black with a tan head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
