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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a very dark brown color. The head is about a finger high, with a khaki shade. It’s somewhat soft and creamy, but not impressively so. Retention isn’t fantastic, either. A decent ring of lacing is left behind, which seems to fade away with time. S: Well, there is some chocolate...just not a lot of it. I pick up a mild note of floral hops, too. There’s also some roasted malt, and even more in the way of nuts and caramel. Closer to a brown ale than a stout (much less a porter), but really not bad at all. I kind of expected worse. T: Just like the nose suggested - it feels like I’m drinking a brown ale. A mild wave of brown sugar and chocolate opens it up, transforming into a gently roasted dryness on the finish. Touches of floral hops appear at times. Since they didn’t add actual chocolate (just chocolate malt), I can forgive the mildness of the chocolate flavor. There just isn’t anything here to ’wow’ me, though. M: I like how dry and crisp it is. It just isn’t very substantial feeling. I believe a great stout should dry AND luxurious feeling; frankly, this is a bit watery. Come to think about it, it’s not even that dry, either - I’m feeling some residual sugar on the palate. Only when the semi-zesty carbonation fades does this really make it feel any richer. O: Rather bland and unassuming. I knew this wouldn’t be Choklat, but did it have to be this boring to drink? It’s an okay gateway craft beer, though. EDIT: It’s becoming more watery as I drink it. Time to drop the scores some.

On tap at Stout pub in Atlanta where it is listed as "House Chocolate Stout". Only had a thin head from the tap and this didn’t last long. An appealing aroma filled with chocolate and dark bread. The flavor had more toffee than usual and less really dark roasted grain. It does have plenty of dark roasted malt flavor but minimal char and smoke and is lightly sweet until the mildly bitter aftertaste. As per appearance, light carbonation with a body that’s a touch too thin. O: pleasant and recommended stout.

Drank from a twelve ounce bottle purchased from Bottle King. Aroma is smokey milk chocolate. Little to non carbonation with a silky feel on the tounge. Chocolately taste with a bit of a hop finish.

Not a grata chocolate stout, but not the worst either. Just doesn't sit in the way I wanted it to on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
