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. Itís creamy, milkshake-like mouthfeel earns this beer the reputation of being dessert in glass

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours black and highly carbonated, with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet molasses and bitter chocolate. Flavor is very chocolatey with a slight boozy bite, which is a surprise as this is not especially high ABV. Pleasant but not a lot of depth.

DavoleBomb (1522) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2015
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.

trapped (1307) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 26, 2015
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.

Underdogs88 (261) - New Jersey, USA - APR 1, 2015
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

ThaDude01 (1) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2015 does not count
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 (1868) - 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

Aroma is roasted roasty roast. Poured into a mason jar pitch black with off white head. Taste is super roasted and dry. Not very complex. Sharp carbonation and pretty thin.

arminjewell (8582) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Pour on nitro tap, dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, hints of slight dark fruit with a hint of earth, slight caramel, alright. Taste is pretty good, nice cocoa powder, coffee, roasted malt into some dark caramel, toffee, more cocoa, finishing fairly sweet, slightly dry.
