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. No head. It tastes like chocolate covered coffee beans. Roasty. Much more coffee than chocolate. Tastes like a chocolate nib. Very dry.

Transfer from BA review on 6-8-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a nearly pitch black color with a one finger tan colored head. The head fades relativity fast leaving a moderate level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is of a heavy roasted malt smell mixed with a sweet chocolate/cocoa aroma as well as some sweeter notes of vanilla and some caramel. Taste – The taste begins with a roasted malt flavor with some lighter dark chocolate flavors. The flavor is lightly sweet upfront with it growing even slightly sweeter as the flavor advances toward the middle of the taste. The sweeter flavors are mainly of a chocolate and light vanilla flavor but have hints of an almost lighter fruit like sweetness and a bit of caramel mixed within. Toward the end a bit of bitterness comes to the tongue in the form of a more earthy and herbal hop flavor leaving a rather roasted, moderately dry and chocolaty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the medium side with a nice smoothness and a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are rather nice for the darker flavors of the brew and make for a fairly nice fuller feel overall. Overall – A rather nice stout with a good chocolate and roasted malt flavor which still maintains a rather easy drinking character.

Dark brown and beige-y head. I think it’s cloudy. Chocolate complexion, I think it is bitter from that or maybe it’s from the hops? They are in here. Good roast complexion. Other notes: malt, ginger, light citrus, oak. A decent stout.

Bottle: pours very dark black brown with a tan head. Aromas are like roasted chocolate and graham crackers... Sorta like a smore. Some nuttiness as well. Taste is very nice... Smooth roasted chocolate and a nice easy drinking mouthfeel. Very nicely done.

joejames (128) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours black. Small light brown head, not a lot of lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is sweet roasted malts, a little bitterness. Creamy, medium body, a little thin. Finishes slightly bitter with notes of roasted malt, coffee and of course chocolate. Not the best but certainly not the worst.

12 oz bottle, Kroger Bridge St. Roast chocolate coffee. Roast chocolate coffee. Roast chocolate coffee. Thin, fizzy, run-of-the-mill and uninspiring. This is the kind of stout I loathe. A decent brewery makes a stout recipe out of a home-brew recipe book. Seriously, who cares anymore... You don’t have to bottle an average-at-best stout just for the sake of having a stout in your roster.
