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

Oh baby! Too rich for my blood is what she said. I say this brew hits the mark. Very dark opaque in color with a two finger head that recedes slowly to a thin ring of lace. Strong aromas of chocolate roasted coffee. Nice! Medium nectar with ample residual effers. Itís very expansive on the palate, almost too much. A strong roasted coffee component balanced by chunky mounds of dark chocolate. Oreo cookie (the dark part), malted wafers, The finish is bittered well leaving me with the desire to carry on as if I was a soldier returning to camp in a dense rain forest. Overall this brew is rich and chocolaty with defined coffee essence and a hint of mint. Itís not viscous but carries itself well. Even as it warms DCS has a great constitution.

bottle. Man Iíve poured a lot of beer down the drain lately. Donít waste your calories on this one. Nice bitter choc up front, but finish is reminiscent of a wet dog.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - APR 28, 2008
Bottle: Pours near opaque; only a little light gets through. Itís topped by a well retained deep khaki head. The aroma has some burnt sesame oil, milky cream notes, roasted barley and cocoa. Fluffy mouthfeel, yet it feels watery simultaneously. The flavor has some milk chocolate upfront. Milky-cream-like flavor. Then it leads into more peppery notes of dark earthy/burning tobacco, burnt sesame seeds and a charred finish. I donít know why I picked up on so much sesame character; itís probably a malt component. Not a bad Stout, just a bit odd.

JK (5653) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2008
Shared by BDR. Bitter chocolate and malt aroma. Black in color and little carbonation. Flavor is bitter, almost charred with burnt popcorn, chocolate, and malt. No hop presence, which is fine for the style.

badgerben (4849) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2008
Thanks to BDR for sharing. Black color with a thin head. Roasted barley aroma. Monster bitter chocolate and roasted malt flavor. As subtle as a bourbon barrel stout that has 4 ounces of bourbon in it. Has a burnt or charred finish.

sthlm (1276) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2008
[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 donít care for the charred malt found in here.

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - APR 18, 2008
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.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 17, 2008
Bomber. Dark brown with a quickly diminishing beige hed. Aroma of bakerís chocolate with some espresso and a cream note. Sweet chocolate flavor with a bitter burnt leaf roastiness and some minerals. Thinner body than Iíd like. Was hoping for something fuller, creamier. Aside from the body issue I thought it wasnít too bad overall.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 16, 2008
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.

(22oz. bottle) Pours a dark brown body with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, lactose, toasted oats, and chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt, coffee, and dark chocolate with a dry, moderately bitter finish.
