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.

Black color with a thin head. Good aroma of oats and coffee. The taste was a little bit of a let down as it seemed to devolve into a slightly sour malty mass. Not much else going on.

Deep copper-brown body with a velvet cream head. Grassy unripened fruit, chocolate and squash aromas. Grassy hop character in the aroma, plus sourdough notes. Modest chocolate and roast emerge as the other characters breath out. Medium body and semi-sweet palate. Mediocre.

saw this for some time and finally decided to give it a shot. poured pitch black with a nice frothy thick head. light toasty aroma with very little sweetness. flavor is very watery and light. minimal roasted coffee notes. I dont pick up on any of the chocolate. more of a burnt coffee. not bad but definately not something to seek out.

Thanks to Brewfiend for sharing. This is a solid but unspectacular beer. The flavor and aroma have choclate and roasted malt with oatmeal taste. Black and medium palate.

Shag (2637) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2007
A black appearance with a moderate tan head. A faint aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. The flavor is rather mild with some coffee and a hint of chocolate. A thin palate for a stout. Overall this is pretty good but nothing out of this world.

Dark pour with nothing big in the nose. Maybe chocolate or maybe not. This was my last bottle and I wonder if it turned as the chocolate was no where near what I remember. Anyway, not an age worthy beer.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Pours a deep rich black with a nice brown head. Odd kinda funky bittersweet chocolate nose. Odd smokey chocolate flavor. Not such a big fan.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Bottle. Small tan creamy head (mostly dissapating). Black opaque color. Chocolate, coffee, and some hoppiness in the aroma. Flavor of roasted almost burnt malts. Initially semi sweet, finishes sweet with some bitterness. Watery texture. Medium bodied. Lively carbonation. Average length of the finish. Alright stout....nothing special.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2007
This just arrived to Nashville. Pours black with a medium khaki head. Aroma is mostly wet coffee grounds, with some dark chocolate in the background. Mouthfeel is medium with some soft carbonation. Somewhat milky in texture. This is not an impy, so I do not find this to be thin. Is there room for more body? Sure. The medium-light coffee roast, chocolate, and sweetness are nicely balanced, making this a simple but nicely crafted session stout. There is and some distracting astrigency, but not offensive. Worth a try. I may even buy some more for the session fridge and bonuses.

Suttree (5259) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Black, thin head. Very mild milk chocolate aroma. , and chocolately flavored, as well, It’s called "Chocolate Stout" and it tastes like Chocolatey Stout. No false advertising here. Maybe a little thinner bodied than I expected, especially given that most of the Fort Collins beers I’ve tried have been fuller bodied. Nevertheless, very tasty.
