COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most decadent creation ever to be crafted in FCB’s brewhouse. Deep roasty flavors, rich chocolate nose, coffee undertones and impeccable balance are the result of imperializing an already flawless brew.

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2008
Dark brown, nearly black pour, with a soapy, lasting head - aroma of caramelized sugars, charred wood, cocoa, some cream/vanilla - creamy mouthfeel - kind of bitter, and almost peppery up front, followed by notes of tobacco and coffee bean - sweetness arrives later in the form of caramel and sweet cream - hazelnut, chocolate, burnt sugars, light blueberry hints - warm alcohol and spiciness develops in the finish - a lot of charred leaf and vegetable qualities throughout that become a little off-putting - alright.

waolsen (1358) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2008
bottle. deep dark brown color with thin frothy tan head. chocolate, burnt malt and mollasses aroma. nice body. rich coffee and dark chocolate are dominant but they are met with a nice dry hoppy bitterness. roasted malts, peppery, hints of coffee liquor. I enjoy this one.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Dark brownish color. Smell of coco, malt, minor caramel and roasted coffee. Taste of hops, chocolate malt, coffee and burnt sugar daddys. Smelled a little bit better than the taste, but this wasn’t a really good stout.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Dark brown with a light brown head that leaves lacing clinging to the sides of the glass. Aroma of roasted coffee beans, chocolate, and caramel. Sweet, roasty flavor, with some bitterness in the finish. Somwhat chalky body, smooth carbonation.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Cola brown in color with similar bubbles hugging the snifter. Aroma dances with dense fudge, mocha chips, frozen brownie chunks and a touch of maple like molasses. A sentiment of cocoa crusted sandpaper rings in the distance. Flavor yields a prominently abundant chocolate display, with semi-sweet morsels densely diffusing in the mouth. Dark chocolate mocha coolers and a hint of delicatessen tootsie rolls ride the tongue from front to back. The palate smack elicits a deepened, Godiva amaretto esque chocolate liquor flavor. Unique levels of carbonation distract the tongue while an authoritative mocha bitterness comes in for the kill. Burnt hazelnut fudge icing couples with a touch of dusty cocoa talc and chocolate malt custard to take the final bow.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Pours a brown color with a brown head. Aroma is malty, chocolate, roast, and a hint of alcohol. Flavor is malt, chocolate, roast, toast, and a bitter spicy finish.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 12/20
BCMike22 (80) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Poured into snifter glass. Deep, rich brown, bordering on black. No carbonation apparent at the pour. Chocolate nose. First sip was of malt and dark, almost baker’s chocolate, but yet sweet. Very easy on the palate. Warming after it goes down.

NachlamSie (2764) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Bomber. Pours a very dark brown with not much of a head. The nose is of toast, nuts, toffee, brownies, and a bit of oats. The flavor has a heavy, semi-dry baking chocolate thing going on that is the first thing I notice but somehow doesn’t dominate the palate either. Some coconut flavor comes out along with cashews, musty basement, popcorn, and oatmeal. Okay, this is drinkable, but there is something weird going on.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Pours a nearly opaque dark brown with a stringy-lacing tan head. Aroma of sweet molten dark chocolate and caramel malts with a touch of roasty coffee. Body starts fairly full and dark caramely sweert with good bittersweet chocolate balance and a drier, lingering roasty finish. A pretty drinkable and mildly complex chocolate stout.

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Poured from a 22-oz bottle a deep, dark brown with a small brown head. Smell with equal of coffee and chocolate. Taste was a nice coffe/chocolate mix, but it had a bitter alcohol finish. I expected this beer to be thicker and have more chocolate flavor as a double chocolate stout, but actually was very smooth going down. But I think I actually prefer the regular chocolate stout by this brewery.
