3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle, thanks BDR!] Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is deep roasted malt--almost charred in fact. The taste is also dominated by the roasted malt, but there is also a lot of chocolate and some coffee present. Decent mouthfeel with a long finish. Not bad, but I really don’t care for the charred malt found in here.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 22 oz bomber. Solid black with a small white head. Strong coffee, burnt malts, sweet nose. Taste is sweet, viscous, chewy, lingering, tongue swirling. Alcohol is evident. Just a bit thin on the end but a nice beer.

Bomber. Dark brown with a quickly diminishing beige hed. Aroma of baker’s chocolate with some espresso and a cream note. Sweet chocolate flavor with a bitter burnt leaf roastiness and some minerals. Thinner body than I’d like. Was hoping for something fuller, creamier. Aside from the body issue I thought it wasn’t too bad overall.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle. Pours black with a moderate tan colored head that faded to a ring after a couple of sips and left some spotty lacing. Very strong aroma of chocolate along with lesser amounts of roasted malt and coffee. The aroma is just wonderful on this beer. The flavor is very nice as well, with roasted malt being the more dominant element, followed by some coffee and then chocolate. There is some very light coffee bitterness present near the end. I have to say I really enjoyed this beer and will be looking to keep a few on hand.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2009 Damn! This one was flat out delicious! xmarcnolanx sent this one my way and DAMN is it good. Pours black and thick, big thick tan head, with some good lacing. Lots of bubbles. STRONG aroma of roasted barley. The body and texture are both rich and thick. Very strong roasted barley and grain flavor. In fact, I would say this is much more a "double roasted" stout as opposed to a "double chocolate" stout, but this is *still* one of the better chocolate beers out there. Some nice coffee and malt flavors going on as well. Everything is rich and dark. Awesome. Warming for a 8.1%, but never tastes boozy. Very tasty and an all around solid brew. VERY glad to have that one, and looking for more!!

This was a nice beer that I am not sure if this is just the regular or double chocolate but either way, still very good.

Good brew. Pours very dark with thin tan head. Aroma is of chocolate and roasted malt. Tastes of chocolate and malt with a hint of caramel. Plenty of roast flavor and alcohol flavor in the finish. Very underrated IMO.
