3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine. Appearance is oily black with a large mocha head. Aroma is more of a smoky and nutty smell than anything else...not getting much chocolate there. Flavor is...different...nice original burst of smoky coffee but it hits a kind of bland middle before finding its roasted origins again at the end. They could have saved some money and kept the cocoa powder out because I never tasted or smelled it.

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?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes, consumed on 4/7/13. Bottle poured into a tulip pint glass. Pours black with almost a finger of tan head. Aromas of roast, coffee, dark chocolate. Tasting notes of dark and milk chocolates, roast, pretzels. Light body with a semi-dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an opaque, oily black into the glass, with a non-retentive head. The nose is chocolates and grapes. Vinous flavors, cocoa, roasted malts, light roasted bitters to finish. The mouthfeel is full-bodied, softly carbonated and very drinkable. Complex, vinous and chocolatey, this is a very nice organic offering! Fresh!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2014 12oz bottle says 5% ABV (this site says 6.1%). Nice fluffy head that lingers with fast lacing over a nearly opaque and plain dark brown body. Aroma is cocoa with a little coffee seemingly serious and above the swill. Taste is mildly sweet like an oatmeal stout. Finish is bitter. Palate is creamy. Classy like good chocolate. Happy to have the six-pack from the store that stocks it.

Seems as though they may have some quality control issues reading the other comments, scanned the barcode, mine says it’s Peruvian cocoa not Dutch.
Not very complex or satisfying, won’t be buying again unless on sale.
