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.

Bottle pours a dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is roasted barley, some hop, little chocolate. The taste is pretty poor for a stout, i get a watery mouth feel with a dry hop in the finish. Overall not a good chocolate stout.

Metalchopz (2211) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Purchased at Total Wine in Summerlin, Vegas. Pours a dark brown colour with a creamy beige head, great retention and lots of foamy lace. Was expecting lots of chocolate in the nose, but seems like the hop is just a step on it. Wet mouthfeel, kind of thin-bodied. The hop calms down in the aromas and cacao and light vanilla surfaces. Taste of mild bitterness over the chocolate and roasted malts. Not the greatest, but can be nice for those who like their chocolate stouts hoppier. Way too thin for a stout.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, very dark brown with a huge tan head and fairly good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt and mild earthy hops. Taste of sweet coffee, chocolate. caramel, citrus and sweet roasted malt. Medium/light body and low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CervezaCabeza (20) - Le Mans, FRANCE - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle. Pours cloudy coffee color. Tan head with nice lacing. Smells of coffee, roasted pecans, and faint cocoa. Slightly sweet faint chocolatey taste. Heavier roasted coffee bean flavor. Nice subtle chocolate flavored stout.

BillWyce (700) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2013
From notes: Poured opaque cola brown with a 2-finger tan head. Aroma is roasty, with a chocolate note. Medium body with a lightly dry finish. Flavor has a roasty bitterness with some chocolate at the back that becomes more prominent as it warms.

Bottle thanks to somebody, rating from my backlog. The look is reddish brown in color with not too much head. The smell is malts, chocolate, roast. The taste is roast, malts, burnt, chocolate, and toast.
