With a boastful, horned moniker like Bison you would expect more than a diluted, soapy beer with only hints of chocolate and mild coffee grinds. The stout isn’t terrible, but it has the mediocre slushiness that a bargain bin brewing kit would make. An alright session beer to have over a wedge of cheesecake, this chocolate stout is perfectly okay to drink - if someone else is paying for it.

This was a very good stout it was smooth, dark and had a great smooth head. I was impressed with how smooth it was. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tightslice (773) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 31, 2016
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.

Bottle at the hotel room in San Diego. Black beer with a small head. Roasted chocolate aroma, licorice, coffee, cocoa powder, caramel, earthy notes, some biscuits. 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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

bigericsports (49) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 2, 2015
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.
