4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fort Collins Chocolate Stout has a thin-to-medium cream-colored head, a dark brown (black, really) appearance with little red-brown highlights at the edges, visible bubble streams on the side of the glass, and a small amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of acidity, dark cherries, sweetness, and dark-roasted barley malt. Taste is of dark brown bread crust, sugar, dark-roasted malt, some chocolate, acidity, and dark cherries at the end of the sip. One will also encounter a balancing hop bitterness at the end, as well. Mouthfeel is pretty light, watery, and slick, and Fort Collins Chocolate Stout finishes semi-dry, rich, sweet, and highly drinkable. This is delicious. RJT

Just OK. Mild chocolate and slightly toasty but overall just too thin. Inoffensive and for the fairly low ABV, not bad.

I expect a stout to be thick, but this seems to be watered down to me. Taste is average for type of beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brewers Association dinner at The Tasting Kitchen in Venice. Tasted side by side with Edmund Fitzgerald from Great Lakes and compared well. No chocolate was harmed in the making of the beer but it had a medium taste of milk chocolate that I picked up. Was paired with a Nougatine but played better with the coconut sorbet.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Opaque dark brown beer with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Nose of sweet brown sugar, a little mocha and molasses. Taste is particularly sweet initially which then is cut through by a bit of bitterness, but not nearly enough to balance it out. Very little roasted malt flavor at all, which would have made this a lot better. What you’re left with is a cloyingly sweet beer that seems to have been made for the palate of a 7-year-old. It’s not terrible, but it needs a lot more to be a good stout.
