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.

A pretty good chocolate stout. Not very high in alcohol (as many beers of this style). Dark, rich color and malty chocolate flavor.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Sample thanks to Cornfield: Bid rich and roasty aroma drifting from the intensely black pour. The flavors were roasted barley, chocolate, cocoa, espresso, and burnt brown sugar. The palate was just a touch too thin, but not distractingly so. The hop bitterness shows up mainly in the finish...quite strong but not oppresive. Very well made beer.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Poured a near pitch black with no head to speak of. Smell is rather un-appealing. Some scent of hops and some kind of bad lactose. Taste is pretty much the same, but the hops are more prominent. I think the biggest problem is the flavors don’t meld very well together. They’re both in your face and fighting one another instead of blending together and complimenting one another. It’s very thin and watery for a stout. Good thing it is, because I’m going to make short work of this thing just to get it over with.

Bottle courtesy Shag/Clash. Poured a nice dark brown color, almost black, good initial head and lacing. The aroma was chocolate and lacto notes. The flavor was rich chocolate with some lactic notes, a lightly roasted bitter aspect at the end of each sip, certainly not bitter, though, and obviously not hoppy. Mouthfeel was slick and oily, a nice finish with each sip. Thanks, Matt, a nice one!

Nuffield (3941) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2007
I had this for with dinner on a lovely May evening in Minnesota. It hit all the expected spots, not brilliantly but nicely. Deep black, moderate lacing. Roasted and rather rich aroma and front, tame middle, some suggestions of roasted malt but not deep in the sense of chocolate. Moderate finish, not especially hoppy (which is good in my stouts). Average bottled palate. Good, solid drinker.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2007
This pours a very dark mahogany body with a creamy, light cocoa head. Good lacing. The aroma is chocolatey with a fair amount of roasted malt. Medium-bodied, it tastes of bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt with a bit of barley, and a light touch of weak coffee. Some hop bitterness is detectable near the finish, balancing the ale out nicely. Pretty decent.

thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Aroma of chocolate, coffee and cigarette ash. Black appearance with a medium head. Thin palate. The flavor is a decent amount of bitter chocolate, and that’s about it. This is very easy to drink.
