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.

Bottle from BevMo! in Redwood City, CA. Didn’t pick up much chocolate and was hoping for that since I’m not too keen on the Dry Stout genre.

Roasted chocolate flavor, tar, coffee, kinda bitter, hay notes, some tar. A bit too heavy on not so good coffee. Liked the aroma though.

This beer is lacking something, its not horrible just weak, not enough alcohol or just not enough stout flavor overall

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bison Organic Chocolate Stout has a thick, beige head, a very dark brown (almost black) appearance, with heavy lacing left behind. The aroma is of dark coffee, cream, bitter chocolate, and rich, dark-roasted malt. Taste is of acidic, strong coffee, chicory, cream, bitter chocolate nibs, and dark malt. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Bison Organic Chocolate Stout finishes semi-wet and drinkable. RJT

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber poured into a pint, black with a light brown head decent lacing. Chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa powder, dark fruit, roasted flavor with toast, burnt nut and bitter chocolate notes. A good dose of bitterness counteracts the cocoa leading to a dry finish with a subtle tinge of hops. This stout taste a lot better when served at room temp.

Not a ray of light comes through this one, so looks are great. Doesn’t taste very strong at first but intensely bitter when swallowed. I only taste chocolate in the aftertaste. Not my favorite and still not a fan of chocolate in beers, sorry.
