On tap at Stapleton Tap House Black pour with a khaki head. Collar of lacing for head but leaves good ring marks through drinking. Big beer. Dark bitter chocolate, coffee, fudge, brownie, roasted malts, milk chocolate. Feel is rich and a bit overpowering. Maybe I am more of a fan of a lighter style of this. I can see where it works but just not doing anything for me but overpowering my palate with too much chocolate and coffee.

Pour on tap at Rackhouse, dark black pour with creamy tan head, aroma brought notes of thick chocolate, milk chocolate into a brownie like note, nice mocha as well into coffee, slight earth, spice, hints of dark fruits as well, wow surprising. Taste was a mix of dark chocolate, milk chocolate into a mocha, coffee like note, nice roast in there with a touch of dark fruits, finishing fairly sweet, slightly bitter. By far the best beer Iíve had from them.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2013
12oz bottle. Opaque brown-black. Soapy beige head. Aspirin dry cocoa aroma. Rich doughy chocolate flavor. Not as rich as a typical Imperial Stout.,but a little bigger than a straightforward Stout too. Sort of tame, uninspired. Decent enough.

Sampled at GABF. Pours an opaque black with some beige head. Mostly coffee nose, some chocolate, toast, molasses, Folgers grounds. The chocolate comes through a lot more in the flavor, sweet, molasses, toast, coffee grounds. Full bodied, dry finish. Well balanced. Drinks like itís 5%.

Tap @ Fort Collins Brewery. Honestly, Iím not a huge fan of the normal Double Chocolate, so Iím not overly optimistic on this one. Pours a black appearance with a light brown head. Actually a delicious, roasted but not burnt black coffee, thick cocoa, a touch herbal aroma. A touch grainy mouth feel. A bit acidic/fruity quality in the flavor from the coffee with additional notes of cocoa, milk, and roast. This one does seem a fair amount better than its sibling.

onceblind (4623) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Tap at brewery. Black with a thin khaki head, and a magnificent aroma of chocolate, freshly brewed coffee, and subtle roastiness. Flavor is pretty dang big with big palate-wrecking notes of coffee, sweet milk chocolate, bitter dark chocolate, and even more roasted coffee. Dark sweet and a perfect day-ender.
