COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chocolate malt and roasted barley provide the dark color and fully body of chocolate stout. Toasy accents and a hoppy dryness add to this smooth brew. An old time favorite you’ll remember.

Onslow (1149) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Inky dark brew with small tan head. Aroma of burnt malt with some coffee and dark chocolate overtones. Taste starts out with sweet malt and then transitions to a nice burnt malt taste, as with the aroma with coffee and chocolate overtones. Ends weakly with some dryness but not much happening. Palate is generally thin but also sticky at the end. Good, enjoyable, not really a standout.

Joakgust (866) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle, 355ml - Opaque dark brown beer with a large beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of chocolate, coffee, roasted barley and vanilla. Flavor is malty with notes of coffee, chocolate, oats and herbs. A bit thin bodied, but pretty ok for this abv.

@ Party Town / Florence KY Aroma of bitter chocolate. Opaque brown-black with swirls of head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is burnt malt mixed with bittersweet dark chocolate. All moves well through a growing palate, giving in to a watery bitterness in the finish. Drinks well enough, but not enough to support the strong flavor. When a beer has strong malt and bitters, it should deliver more on the palate. Reasonable, but not much beyond that

johnnyoski (432) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a short-lived, light brown head. Bitter cocoa aroma. Lightly smoked, bitter chocolate taste with hints of burnt malt. Dry, watery texture with average carbonation. Not offensive, but just a run of the mill beer.

strongpieman (1472) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. Clear brown beer with a light head. Very thin body for a stout with mainly bitter taste and not much more. Some light chocolate, but not really a stout imo. Pass on this one.

Bottle. Roasted barley aroma with chocolates notes. Pours black with a good size mocha brown head and great lacing. Sweet chocolate malt to start. Finishes smooth with some dryness with the roasted barley and some coffee bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nitro tap at mellow mushroom. Nitro helps quite a bit. Pour is black with persistent thick head. Smooth as a 4 year old. A bit sweet with cocoa notes and coffee bitterness to follow. Nitro makes this awesome. ---Rated via my mouth
