lumpsowers (287) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Chocolate syrup pour, nice head and lace. Gross wet dog aroma. Highly carbed, savory, with a light semisweet chocolate chip flavor. Thin mouthfeel, bitter and bready. Maybe the worst stout Iíve ever had.

kidobutai (419) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Poured from a bottle. The head is a little disappointing, but it has okay lacing and rich brown color that is appealing. It smells better than it tastes, I donít think that the organic does it any favors.

Ron (2679) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle at Swiss Louis on Pier 39 in San Fran. Poured from my bottle a light black with tan head. The aroma was bitter sweet chocolate, malts, and yeast. Taste was light chcocolate, a malty backbone. Overall a decent beer, I was wishing for more of the chocolatey bittersweet to come through though.

arn8897 (46) - Trenton, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours a deep rich dark brown. Nice dark tan head with long lasting retention. Smells of chocolate and a hint of coffee and wheat. However thin on the palate and tastes a little weak suprisingly.

slowrunner77 (6077) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"i would not call it "richly textures" or "charismatic", as Bison claims. This beer was a bit of a thin-bodied disappointment, as Iím usually crazy about the style. Underwhelming all around for a choc. stout, it isnít one Iíll buy again."

Single from total wine. Relatively muted flavors and a bit watery. Some roasty malt and rich chocolate flavors. Aroma is a touch of roasty malt. Finish is a little bittersweet. Ok but absolutely better beers out there.

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.
