A great chocolate beer - this probably has the most robust chocolate flavors of any that I have had. Very creamy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - APR 26, 2013
Bomber. A clear black beer, with an average sized, frothy, mostly diminishing, brown head. The aroma is moderately to heavily malty (chocolate, roasted grain, coffee, hint of molasses), with notes of cinnamon and vanilla, with minor notes of chilies and alcohol. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, soft/lively carbonation, very long finish with moderate bitterness, very lightly burning, moderately alcoholic. Yummy and underrated, a good Humahpu’s clone, still far from that greatness. A litle more chile would be appreciated, although this is already a great beer.

Metalchopz (2263) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Purchased at the Coop in Montpelier, VT. Pours a real dark brown colour with a frothy beige head, decent retention and small lace. Chocolate nose with roasted malt, light spices and vanilla. Slick mouthfeel with a little stickiness. Fruity taste of dark fruits, roasted malts and a nice coffee finish. Not really tasting much spices. More fruit than chocolate as well. Decent, but not as good as I expected from the reviews.

Brouwerij (919) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a half finger of fine tan head. Settles quickly with a little lacing. Aroma is chocolate, fruity, vegetal, alcohol. Flavor is sweet chocolate up front, fruity, plum/stone fruit, fading into bitter chocolate, cocoa nibs, roasted malt, and mild alcohol. Bitter chocolaty aftertaste. Alcohol is not as well masked as their other imperial stouts. Soft carbonation, medium-full body, and a smooth texture and finish. A tasty, strong chocolate stout.

tmoreau (2380) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2013
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to fill a rock glass in order to sample, showing a black/brown hue with a brownish tan, frothy head, and nice cling to the spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was roasty, cocoa, with a touch of dark fruit sweetness and tartness, vanilla, spice, but didn’t pick up on the ancho chile. The flavor was similar, with soft carbonation that prompted no more than a medium bodied perception. Nice complexity, with the alcohol fairly hidden.
