Tessic (849) - Brantford, Ontario, - DEC 21, 2013
This chocolate stout poured a deep black colour with a big, tan coloured, creamy head. Scents include chocolate to the 9th degree, cherries and cream. First sip was a shitload of cocoa flavor with additional flavours of cherries, cherry whiskey and Cherry Blossom chocolate bars. Finish is cocoa to the extreme, almost syrup.

750 ml bottle shared by Scott. Very fake chocolate candy chemical nonsense. This is not beer, it’s an abomination. Gross.

MrHangover (2541) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a pitch black beer with a thin beige head on top. Aroma has loads of chocolate obviously. It’s almost like smelling chocolate milk, some lactose in there as well. Slight malty and caramel base. Flavor has again loads and loads of chocolate going on, basically this is a chocolate bomb and quite a nice, sweet surprise going on here.

Présence de vanille en arrière goût. (Rating #5832)

olio (6287) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
75 cl bottle.
Pours pitch black color with a small off-white head. Very intense fruity chocolate, orange, some minty notes, faint alcohol, like a liquid confetti with infused marshmallow, very unique aroma on this one. Milk chocolate, cocoa, molasses, marshmallow and distant licorice. Smooth velvety palate with a slightly tangy finish, alcohol is quite well hidden, deceptive I’d say. Very tasty and unique.

lusikka (6354) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a small beige foamy head. Aroma of sweet syrup, dark chocolate, cream liqueur and cream. Flavour of rich roasted malts, milk chocolate, cream liqueur, bitterness and coffee. Feels like a tiramisu. Full bodied and oily mouthfeel. Really creamy and smooth.

tiong (3855) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
750ml bottle

Pours pitch black with a small head. Aroma of chocolate, confection, mudcake and roastiness. Taste is roasty, heavy and chocolatey with notes of confection, mudcake and chocolate biscuits. Finish is smooth, slightly roasty and heavy with chocolate notes. Like eating a dark chocolate confection. Quite untypical. Not sure if I like this or not.

laiti (5793) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
75 cl bottle @ lusikka
Aroma is unusual with acidic and sweet chocolate tones with sweet apples, sugar and liquor. Like a licorice chocolate candy. Flavour has alcohol, calvados, sweet apples, fruit sugar and artifical chocolate. Could be better without the alcohol tones. Quite like a liquid liquor fondant. Unusual, works as small amounts but the booze takes easily over here.

chucklemation (511) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Pours a jet black with a small tan head. Aroma is sweet milk chocolate and some fruit. Aroma is super sweet, almost too sweet, but still intoxicating. Flavor is like a chocolate milkshake, sweet chocolate and a touch of bitterness. Has a full-body feel and goes down smooth. Delicious.

johnnyoski (442) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Bottle. Near black with a small tan head. Heavy chocolate syrup aroma. Big chocolate flavor, with a bitter cocoa finish and slight lingering alcohol burn. Soft carbonation with a somewhat creamy texture. I don’t recall this being quite as boozy when I had the pleasure of finding it on tap a month ago. Still a very enjoyable choice for dessert.
