Lots of chocolate in this one but is it really a stout? Looks like one but is very light bodied and doesn’t have the roastiness you would expect. Smells like and tastes like hot cocoa. A little too much for my taste.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a decent tan head. Nice aroma of chocolate, vanilla, and malt. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, malt, and some caramel. Kind of thin bodied. Pretty good for the price.

Dogbrick (8813) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 019: Choco-tastic 02 on 12/27/2014. Dark brown pour with a medium thin tan head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of chocolate syrup, sweet malt and a touch of coffee. The finish is sweet with a chocolatey aftertaste. Decent overall.

A great looking and smelling Stout, but something is slightly off with the toasty flavor.

lusikka (6609) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Draught @ Tap-House, Munich. Pours a pitch black colour with a beigeish firm head. Aroma of dark rich chocolate, burnt caramel and earthiness. Flavour of rich liquified chocolate, pudding, mild bitterness, some caramel sweetness and herbs. Medium bodied. Very soft mouthfeel. Good balance. Nice one.

rondphoto (2375) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - DEC 14, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black color, dark tan rim head, lace slides back in. Taste is light toasted malt and chocolate that moves neatly through the palate to a slightly bittered finish. A nice simple brew, a little light and watery, but satisfactory for 5.5% abv. Does what it intends.

Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of dark chocolate, light vanilla and a hint of fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth watery finish. Flavors of dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla with a smooth watery lingering chocolate finish.

hitit345 (24) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2014 Stout. Kahlua and sweet choco aroma. Dark, sunlight does not penetrate through pint glass. Thick rich taste, once again, Kahlua. Great. Better when closer to room temperature.

nearbeer (3901) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Pint on tap. Dark chocolate brown but nearly transparent in the light, with a lasting ring of foam. Aroma is maple, chocolate, caramel and toast. Taste is the same with vanilla, a bit of dry grass, and cocoa on the finish to provide a decent balance. Near-medium body leans to the sweet side and has medium carbonation. Easy to drink dessert beer that never becomes cloying, but I had to shift to something more dry for a second pint.
