1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
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 I’ve ever had.

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.

Some sharp bitter chocolate with a hint of roast. OK head and lacing. Black pour. Light bitter finish. Palate is pretty straight forward here, not a lot of complexity. Bottle.

Few years ago I brewed a few batches of beer, the first one was a Chocolate Stout where the owner of a brew store helped me with the bottling and fermented it in his stand in fridge. Long story short, that was the best of the 3 or 4 that I brewed...came out something like 8% and very well-balanced. Bison’s stout has been the closest Chocolate Stout that reminded me of that brew. Wasn’t as strong, but the taste was sweet and semi-hoppy. What really dissapointed me though, was that after I decided that this is a beer that I really like, I can’t find it anymore. They usually have their Golden Ale, but for some reason the Chocolate Stout isn’t distributed here anymore.
Updated 6/21/09: Just found a 6’er of this at Whole Foods- Aventura, FL. Was going to buy a bomber in Orlando next month while on vacation to try again, so just went ahead and bought a 6 now. This beer wasn’t as good as I had originally remembered....as the last time I tried it was maybe late 2007. There seemed to be a little less flavor this time, mouthfeel was a bit rusty, slightly bitter flavor with a sweet chocolate finish. Little bit of a mocha head, but not much. Still a decent choco-stout, but wouldn’t say it’s closer to 4 like my original review. Probably will go with Rogue’s Choco or Lost Coast’s 8-Ball Stout next time around.
