COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. It’s creamy, milkshake-like mouthfeel earns this beer the reputation of being dessert in glass

Draft. This stout is intense. Pours a deep midnight black. The sweet maltiness is huge. There is no denying that this is a chocolate stout. It’s so insane, I don’t know how to best sum it up in words. I think this beer deserves further research. {insert evil laughter}

harrisoni (15043) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2008 Bottle at Chris_o Shindig. Black, lasting tan head. Lovely aroma of cocoa choc. Decent hop. Molasses, wood, bit lactic even. Sweetish. It’s got good choc, bit one dimensional, strong hop unbalances it. 3.2/5.0 Re-rate 2006 Bottle at Chris_o pre GBBF Shindig 08. Aroma of choc and molasses. Good choc. Lacks a bit of fullness in mouth. Simple but nice.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2007
Bottled - Chris O Shindig 2007 - A black, slightly oily looking beer. The aroma is chocolatey and there is a hint of sourness. The taste is chocolatey but there’s some hop hits also. There is a little roastiness and lots of flavour. Nice and quite porterish.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2007
A Mes rate: Bottle at Chris O’s Shindig. Black body with a tan head. Coffee malt aroma. Smoky and chunky. Flavour follows on from the aroma but is slightly better. Coffee again, lovely tangy malt and heavy chocolate but not overly sweet. Very pleasant woody notes too. More coffee in the finish. Almost great but just not quite there.

This just did not appeal to me. Very sweet and dark, as you can imagine. Just not very complex and a bit boring.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle. Aroma was of roasted malts, bakers chocolate, and coffee. Average sized frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing head that left a fair lace. Body was deep dark and black/brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately bitter and finishes the same but sour. Average duration. Palate is medium bodied with a texture like flat soda (thicker than water but lighter than oil). Flat carbonation with a light astringent feel on the finish. Fantastic brew, full of flavor and taste, with a beautiful appearance. The sour finish was a turn off and the only complaint I’d have. I’d recommend if your lactose tolerant, otherwise the next morning will be rough. Trust me

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 19, 2007
Pours very dark brown with a soapy caramel colored tan head. The aroma has milk chocolate, sharp lactic acid, brown sugar, molasseses and charred malt. Medium / thin body with underscored semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with bitter dark charred chocolate malt, light fruitiness and sharp flavors along with being on the water side, but still nice. The finish adds some extra bitterness and a nice lactic tang.
