JoshAWaddell (36) - Allen Park, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2014
A sweet chocolate and coffee aroma. Dark brown pour with almost no head. Chocolate taste that is very, very thin. Wouldn’t drink again.

bartlebier (1640) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2014
From draught @Camba Tap House, München 02/2014. Aroma to be had from more than arm’s length: deep confectionery dark chocolate that I would love to learn is all roasted dark malts, but more probably due to a generous injection of same from a pancake house-style chocolate syrup bottle. Reminiscent of Young’s Double Chocolate Stout, but more Overwhelming liquid cocoa gives way to some roast, minimal supporting coffee notes and minimal hop presence before giving way to a quick finish on a thin palate.

JFGrind (1842) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Strong chocolate aroma, dark full flavored stout with cocoa and sweet malts. Very well done stout.

SomeCallMeCoach (2) - East Lansing, USA - JAN 30, 2014 does not count
I had this from a bottle, poured into a standard glass. Thoroughly enjoyed the aroma, a nice dark chocolate and almost caramel or coffee hint. Very dark black in color, with a minimal head. medium body, creamy, average carbonation, slightly bitter finish from this one. I enjoyed this, but I definitely prefer their Vanilla Java porter to this one!

Ron (2493) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of chocolate with some vanilla. Mostly sweet chocolate flavor with hint of vanilla and a touch of bitterness at the end. Nice beer. Thanks for the trade JB.

Nuffield (3667) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2013
The first sips are rather strong with cocoa, and although that mellowed for a bit into a more sympathetic chocolate ale (not really sure whether this merits being classified as a stout), later on the negatives return with some astringent (another rater had a good adjective in "chalky") finishing notes. It is also quite thin and begs for more dimensionality, especially on the back end of it. Not something I would drink again. Bottle.

BlowOffTube (450) - Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Pours dark brown almost black tan head. Aroma is chalky chocolate syrup. Taste is the same with a little vanilla. Medium body light carbonation. Not bad.

kennydiaz (352) - Manahawkin, New Mexico, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Pours a smooth black color with mild carbonation. Taste like chocolate syrup. Very sweet and best for dessert.
