Brewed with chocolate from Colorado’s very own Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Inc., this Imperial Chocolate Cream Stout is full of rich, toasted chocolate notes with hints of dark fruit. 72 Imperial will take you where you need to go. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

12oz bottle: pours an oily opaque black with mahogany edges and a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty malty nose with some cocoa and dark chocolate. Starts with decent fullness and toasty malts with a good amount of cocoa and a touch of raisins before a drier bittersweet finish. Pretty smooth and well-balanced.

Very sweet Euro chocolate nose. Palate is silky, creamy, and chocolaty. This is easy to drink enjoyable stuff without much in the way of depth or dimension.

Black pour with a thick tan head. Aroma is of strong milk chocolate and vanilla. Chocolate dominates the flavor with caramel, vanilla and a bit of roastiness. Full bodied, sweet with a creamy mouthfeel. Vanilla lingers long into the finish. Very solid brew, not too sweet, great body and tasty.

Tasty beer, but a bit too sweet for me. It has a bit of chocolate and vanilla, and some lactic-like sour-sweetness, but it’s mostly loaded with an overpowering syrup flavor. Unfortunately, balance suffers, as the bitterness is only mild; the roastiness is very soft; and the alcohol lacks bite. All that said, it’s still a decent sipper, albeit a dessert sipper.

Bottle from U pick 6 Erie. Poured deep brown with medium full head that dissipated. Lots of chocolate aroma in this one. Creamy texture. Medium full body. Medium sweet taste. Roasted malt and a good bit of cocoa in the taste and a bit of hazelnut. Not bad at all. Needs a little more carbonation and head.

Pours an opaque black with tan 1 finger head that quickly dissipates with little lacing. Prominent roasted malt with very clear flavors of dark chocolate and background of espresso and a subtle hint of tobacco. Surprising hint of pine hops. Full bodied with medium carbonation (would be great on a nitrogen tap, I bet!) Long, medium bitter finish where I appreciate more tobacco and earthy tones. This is a fantastic stout that is not overwhelming in chocolate, but still the dominant idea put forth.
