On tap at Dad’s Kitchen in Sacramento. Aroma was faint with chocolate and coffee notes. Pleasant and drinkable, but I like to taste more chocolate when drinking a "chocolate stout".

Poured from bottle to glass. Dark hue with brown creamy head that lingered. Aroma is chocolate, roast, coffee, caramel, toffee. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a nice astringent bitterness following and a clean finish. Overall this was a nice brew.

Aroma: Roast coffee and chocolate with hints of yeast at the edges. Appearance: Black with a rich tan head. Taste: Light sweetness balanced by a light sourness. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: A bit too sour for my taste. A bit disappointing.

Draft wob. This is the kind of "chocolate" stout I prefer. As opposed to youngs, this one is bitter. Body is full and creamy texture. Aroma is of dark chocolate and roasted barley. Middle is of bitter roasted coffee and cocoa nibs. Carbonation is spritzy and refreshing. Finish is cocoa bitter and lingering slightly sweet chocolate. Overall dry, bitter, chocolatety medium bodied stout.

Opaque deep dark brown beer with a tinny beige head that barely forms before disappearing. Nose of bitter cocoa, coffee, and burnt sugar. Flavor is more of the same with unsweetened chocolate, espresso, and dark roasted grain, but the flavor is surprisingly subtle with little finish. A bit of bitterness lingers, but not much more. Decent, but not great.

Black pour with small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and cocoa. Taste of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, touch of lactose, cocoa and faint milk sugar. Nice and chocolaty stout with nice carbonation, nicely balanced. Excellent stout!

Bottle split w/ Travlr. Cheers! Chestnut brown with a small head. The nose had some red fruit accents. Mellow chocolate. Not much else. The taste also lacks personality. Thin burnt caramel and roasted coffee. Way over carbed. Not great.

Interesting but not so chocolate alike in taste. Nice features and some cocoa powder aroma but not much.

Bottle. Pours a light brown. Mild lacing with a small head. .. Coco, muddy water, and some chocolate kids porridge .. . Overall way to light and just a bit muddled, not my cup of tea .. . . What’s the etiquette when you pull up next to a dude with the same exact car as you? Avoid eye contact? Nod? Wink? Swordfight?
