Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 04/27/2012. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and a touch of hops. Medium body with a roasty character and flavors of chocolate, espresso and hops. The finish is sweet with a cocoa and slight berry aftertaste. Above average overall.

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Super-dark black with a reddish tinge if you hold it to the light. Nice, thick pillow of tan foam. The aroma isn’t all that evocative, but the flavor on the drink is packed with milk chocolate and cream, full-bodied and sweet. Nice night cap on a rainy night, a few raspberries in accompaniment would be nicer. (#4582, 5/3/2012)

Aroma is chocolate with a little coffee. Pours dark brown almost black with a thin tan head. Taste is chocolate, malt, and coffee. Very smooth with no bitterness. Great chocolate stout.

portableparty (1954) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a copper tint when near light with a khaki soapy head that fades to collar. Aroma roasted malt chocolate and light coffee. Taste is more of the above with a dry bitterness and some soy and peat showing in the end. Palate a fizzy carbonation and a drying finish. Not bad, pretty enjoyable!

Served from a 12 oz bottle from Hyde Park Wine and Spirits. The appearance is a deep brown-black with no head. The flavors and aromas are similar with a roasted malt, milk chocolate, lactose sugar, and vanilla. The mouth is a touch chalky. Could use more creaminess for the name but not bad.

matthewjk (938) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2012
poured from 12oz bottle - Doesn’t reveal many secrets on the nose, but my sense of smell is pretty lacking. This thing is quite smooth and creamy, with chocolate / milk chocolate overtones--basically as advertised. Nice roasted malts are the backbone. Nice creation.

Beyond (23) - Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2012
Dark, opaque pour. Dark tan head. Sweet, creamy, chocolate, caramel, earthy, malty taste. Silky smooth palate feel. Little bitterness. Maybe a bit sweet for my taste, but a nice brew.

tmongoose (1389) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2012
12oz bottle pours dark brown with big brown head that lingers. The aroma is of roasted malts and chocolate. Get a slight alcohol aroma in there. The flavor is of chocolate powder and cream. Tis beer is very smooth with no bitterness from either the chocolate or hops. This is a medium bodied beer. No alcohol burn as I detected in the aroma. Just creamy smooth.

drfabulous (4175) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - APR 25, 2012
12 ounce from Liquor Barn. A nice pour. Tan head over dark body. Very creamy. Chocolate. Milk shake. Nice chocolate aroma. Surprisingly good. Better than I expected.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2012
Pours turbid deep blackish brown with 2-finger sticky khaki head. Nose is roasty chocolate malt, mild coffee, hops, some lactose. Tastes pretty rich and hefty in palate density, with roasty chocolate malt flavor, some molasses, hops, overall semi-sweetness, and backup hops. This one finishes with a rich dark patent and choc malt flavor, backup hops, and cacao and dark choc syrup.
