Dark brown pour, smallish head. Great aroma of bitter, dark chocolate. The flavor features a little more roast, espresso, and even a little vanilla, but still plenty of chocolate presence. Palate is a little light, but otherwise this is a good brew.

chocolate, black, In a bottle. After pouring, I smelled the bottle with a sinful smile. Upon tasting the brew, I realized I was having a great dessert. After I had finished, I wanted another Decadent. This is a chocolate lover’s dream beer.

Bottle. Pours an opaque brown-black with a smooth, even-grained, lacy light brown head. Nose is milk chocolate, maple, brown sugar -- extremely sweet. Not as sweet on the tongue, and very lightly carbonated; has an almost pipe-tobacco complexity that adds to the richness. Too light on the palate, though; mars what would otherwise be excellent. Takes it down to only good, but still, good.

This stuff is weird and disappointing. bland, way to chocolate dominated, gets overwhelming. Billed as a stout. Bizarre.

Dark brown color, no head. Has an amazing dark chocolate smell, but the taste is underwhelming. Has a watery feel. The taste is strongly reminiscent of a weak Dr. Pepper. Palate is strongly carbonated - a little too harsh.

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Slight coffee and chocolate. Loads of grain. Light, watery body. Not a fan of this one.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amazing chocolate smell. Chocolate taste upfront with a coffee at the back. It had a good taste to it and easy drinking, but it had a thin, watery feel to it. Very light body for a stout.
It is a good, easy drinking stout. Might be a gateway stout. Not that complex of a beer.

As soon as I smelled it I knew it was going to be good..a little lighter than expected but delicious..and not as potent as others in this realm so you can enjoy a few without getting too tipsy. Overall really tasty.
