Strykzone (5067) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bomber. An almost black pour that has just a little tan foam that doesn’t last long. An aroma rich with vanilla and chocolates. First flavor is roasted and there is a surprising hop bite to it. Did not get that in the nose. Decent bitterness is also of dark chocolate and some zest. I do taste a hint of oranges. The roast and chocolate dominate and alcohol is not noticed. I just looked at the ABV and am surprised by it.

hayduke (3468) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Gift from a friend. I think it might have some from the Beer of the Month Club. It poured jet black with a tan head. Nose of roasted chocolate malts. Medium body Flavor is chocolate and the finish is bitter. Quite OK.

puboflyons (2224) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 5, 2014
From the 650 ml. bottle. No bottling date listed. Drinking at around 55 degrees. The pour is black with a soft, long-lasting tan head that clings gracefully to the side of the stem glass. Chocolate on the nose and toasted malts. No booze. Full body. The flavor is similar with a forward chocolate malt character but the bitterness at the end lingers and seems a little off. Other than that I found it to be enjoyable.

edgallow (2347) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2014
22 oz bomber pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee. Taste is malts, cocoa and coffee.

WillRunForBeer (855) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Draft at Grill Next Door. Pours pitch black with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate and roast. Flavor is much of the same, chocolate, bitter roast. Tannic and slightly chalky, but not as bad as its rate would indicate.

jimhilt (2429) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours a one-finger light tan head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Roasted coffee and chocolate nose and flavor is bakers chocolate with hints of malty sweetness. $5.99 for a 22oz bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma. Brewed Nov 27, 2013. Label has the brewer as Brewmasters Brewery not Blatant Beer. ABV is 9.0%.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 15, 2014
Aroma of milk chocolate and spice, a hint of vanilla. Straight black, greasy look. Bitter, smokey and very chocolaty. Tastes cold somehow. Mid weight milk textured body. Verdict: As close to chocolate ice cream as you’ll find in a beer.
