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.

Nose smells like uncooked malt. Chocolate but lacking complexity. Aggressive mouth feel. Slightly fresh hops on the finish but pretty strange balance. Not terrible overall somehow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black with no head. Aroma is roasty and slightly smokey. Flavor is light, and slightly roasty. Very bland stout.

Find this to be very lackluster and uninspiring. Very bland chocolate flavor and rather thin for my liking. Nothing was really appealing about this for me.

Poured from a regular bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a slightly thick, watery dark brown-black color with a good-sized creamy tan head with shorter retention but good cling and lacing. Its roasty aroma featured a blend of earthy tones with malt, including caramel, toffee, and chocolate. The taste was sweet with notes of chocolate, caramel, a bit of coffee and some lighter earthy, grainy bitterness at the finis. The beer had a pretty wet and watery mouthfeel with low carbonation and was a touch and creamy.

Poured into shaker from bottle. Dark opaque brown with fair-sized tan head and some chocolate aroma. Not so much chocolate to the flavor, mainly just malt. Mildly bitter finish but not long - it’s too watery a beer to leave much of an aftertaste.

Chocolate-hued and thick in appearance, with a dense and sticky sandy tan head. Aroma is nice -- Cocoa powder, milk, splashes of coffee and sourdough. The flavor is mild, for a chocolate stout. Soft cocoa in the front is followed by the soft bite of roasted malt. Very clean, balanced finish. Almost a little too insubstantial -- I’d like more lingering chocolate. Poundable, though.

Twelve ounce bottle from Fort Collins variety pack purchased at The Party Source. Opaque brown color, nice firm roasted malt/chocolate nose, good flavor like the aroma plus coffee-like notes. Only negative note is a slight medicinal/chemical taste without which this rating would be higher. Still well worth trying.

AdamT (231) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2015
12oz bottle from Brewmaster’s in Wilson. Black hue, zero visibility with mostly lasting medium khaki head. Excellent lacing. Roasted coffee, light chocolate malt and citrus hop aromas. Dark malt heavy up front with a light chocolate malt and coffee bean finish. Creamy mouthfeel.

Not a flavorful stout. Very watery in texture and flavor. Strong roasted grain flavor. Slightly bitter. Smells roasted to the nose ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerandhockey8 (242) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - JAN 5, 2015
From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a nice dark brown, almost black with a dark brown head. Nose is heavy coffee, roasted malt, chocolate. Taste is medium bodied, mostly bitter with hints of sweetness as well. Finishes sharply with a lingering taste. Not a bad beer, just a little on the flat side.

Padron4KM (620) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2015
12 oz bottle. Dark brown, thin tan head, no retention, no lace.
Roasted malt aroma, mild coffee.
Flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, iced coffee.
Thin body for a stout, more like a porter.
