Location: 12 oz bottle from Giannone, 8/31/13

Aroma: The nose is mild and moslty chocolate, with some roast, and sweet malts as well
Appearance: It pours a dark brown colorwith a small head and some light, drippy lace
Flavor: The taste is sweet and malty, not a ton going on, pretty one dimensional
Palate: The body is light for the style and it has a thin feel, soft carbonation, and a short duration
Overall Impression: I thought this beer was okay, but ultimately it is just a little too one dimensional and a little too thin to get a higher score than this.

push dark black brown clear with a big creamy cocoa colored head. Aroma and flavor are lighter as expected from a single sweet stout, with a decently creamy body. You get chocolate, not too sweet or bitter but blended well on that body, roasted malts as well.

WabashMan (1012) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - AUG 27, 2013
This is a solid stout --- not exceptional, but really very tasty and worth seeking out for repeat tastings. Pours very dark brown with a nice medium brown head. Nose is a little roast but mostly sweeter, chocolately notes. Flavor puts the roast well into the background, with the chocolate notes really taking over. Not too sweet and quite tasty.

Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
On tap @ Top Hops. This is a deep dark brown - as good as black in the glass really and it had a nice medium sized really dense and really good looking chocolaty top. Nice sweet chocolate nose, lots of chocolate ice cream in this one, a little bit of chili and sweet chocolate. Nice stuff. Yeah, as expected it’s a bit on the sweet side, but not to far out there. Really chocolaty in the taste, it has a soft soapy thing, some roastiness also, but the sweet chocolate is playing the main role here. Lacto sweet, some milky thing and it ends with a nice chocolaty confetti flavor. Really smooth on the oily mouthfeel and the carbonation is soft and almost prickling kits if flavor. 14.06.2013

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks zvikar. Black with a bit of light brown foam. Nice roasted coffee beans aroma with cocoa notes. Roasty flavor, bittersweet, with lots of coffee, some dark chocolate and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Decent.

LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2013
On tap. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate. Flavor of booze, sweet malt, raisin, roasted malt, chocolate. A bit strong for 7.2% and not enough chocolate, given the name. A bit of a disappointment. 7/4/6/3/13 (3.3/5)
