2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Malzig-säuerlicher Antrunk. Säuerlich bleibend, etwas würzig. Im Verlauf röstiger werdend, unausgewogen. Im Abgang würziger, die Intensität ist hier angemessen.
Danke an den Doppelbock für das Bier.

Pours deep brown with no head. The nose is chocolate and vinegar like. The body is a bit thin, and the flavor is tart and acidic, with some chocolate lost in there as well.

Courtesy SoLan via aspidites. Dark, almost black color, creamy dark tan head. Nutty roast and dark chocolate aroma, light lactose notes. Creamy texture, nutty front end, more chocolately on the back end. Very nice. Smooth chocolate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy SoLan by way of aspidites. Pours dark brown/black with a monster, foamy light brown head. Good doses of chocolate syrup, with some dark fruit, and a little tartness in there as well. The flavor was very creamy, lots of chocolate cream and vanilla mixed together. A little tartness in the finish which might be a sign of age, but I think this has held up quite nicely. Very creamy nd smooth going down, with some nice flavor in there. A nice little treat.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hand bottled courtesy of RD. Head dissipates really quickly. Smells like a Hershey bar. Bitter chocolate finish w/ milky chocolate body. A nice session stout w/ tons of flavor and body.

Mix the chocolate milk stout and the espresso stout for a mocha stout? ;)
A bit sweeter than their other stouts, and creamy, this has definite hints of chocolate and coffee. Black. Full-bodied and almost chewy. Deliciously smooth on Nitro.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge tan-greige head, rather fast gone over black beer with a little red lining; Chocolate, coffee, capuccino, and a bit lactic sourness. Cacao, roasted grains, bit of coffee, which builds up and keeps haning around long, despite the sweet lactose. Quite full bodied, slick. A bit fit-into-the-mold, but certainly not bad.
Thanks to brewer Rodger D. for supplying me the series!

Draft. One of my all time favs from Drakes (and my wife’s all-time favorite beer). It sucks they’ll never make this again (from what I hear). Pours almost pitch black with an ivory head. Chocolate aromas with coffee notes. Somewhat heavy on the palate with chocolate, coffee, toffee and caramel notes. I’ll really miss this beer!

On tap at the brewery 5/26/06, this had a rich black color with a small foamy head. The aroma was very sweet, good chocolate and roasted malt notes. Flavor was very smooth with lots of sweet flavors of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. This was served a bit too cold, I think letting this warm would have made a big difference. Unfortunatley I got to Drake’s a bit late and was in "chug-mode". Good beer nonetheless.
