Number Too - This beer is made with milk sugar (lactose) which gives this beer a nice creamy mouth feel which mingles with hints of chocolate and roasty flavors.

DietPepsican (1560) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Black with thin dirty brown head. Strong coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavor is bitter coffee, milk chocolate, roasty malt, smoke, hazelnut. Finishes slightly bitter, creamy. Nice carbonation.

Aroma is dark milk chocolate, and this strange bock-like blending of dark cocoa and this ineffable goodness that I can only describe as port- but less winey. Flavor is dark chocolate, port, bitter cocoa. This is very straightforward, but damn good.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Bottle from Stine - thanks! Nice looking blackish pour with a smaller head. Aroma has a bold creamy, roastiness that mixes well with the dark chocolate and light coffee essence coming off this one. Flavor is chocolatey-creamy with some light smokiness, a hint of espresso, and light hop bitterness. Nice mouthfeel - Good stout with a taste doesn’t quite live up to the wonderful aroma (or its close relative Black Bier), but still a nice stout from Dark Horse.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Low carbonation. Lots of cocoa in the aroma. Tastes a bit like melted milk chocolate. Distinct lactic finish. Very nice.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAR 3, 2008
Wow! Extremely dark pour is essentially pitch black. Small cocoa head. Aroma is overpowering chocolate with a hint of dark roast. Creamy medium full body with restrained carbonation. Taste is mostly chocolate but there is a soothing lactic note and some bitter dark roast. Very nicely done. Thanks to acknud for the bottle.

wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Thanks to Eben for this one. Black bodied with a small brown head. Somewhat powdery aroma of chocolate and coffee. Flavor is quite chocolaty as well with a gentle roastiness blended in with the flowing smooth texture.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Bottle thanks to mreusch. Poured a deep black color with a moderate tan head that diminished quickly. Aroma of light roast and a earthy green character. Light chocolate and roasted malt that leads into a earthy, almost cardboard taste, but not necessarily in a bad way. Very creamy and smooth, easy-drinking with no real signs of alcohol. Pretty nice beer, may be better fresh. Thanks Matt.

12 oz. bottle via trade with pantanap - Pours a dark brown color with a thin, 1/4 finger thick tan head that faded quickly. Very light lacing after a few good swirls. Aroma is a very light roasted malt. What a disappointment. Flavor is light roasted malt and bitter sweet chocolate. Palate is soft but dry. Medium body. Has a lingering dry roasted malt aftertaste. A decent beer. Thanks Kan.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 27, 2008
This one received via trade with SQNfan...THANK YOU!!! Black as coal brew with less than foam; a single swirl of caramel bubbles tried to break the surface but their attempt was futile!!! Aroma was s’mores-like, with dark bitter chocolate, cedar-laden smoke, and creamy marshmallow froth. It coated the tongue well...just missing a little somethin’ somethin’ to push it over the top.
