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

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.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2008
650 ml bottle pours black with a big off white head and lots of lace. The aroma is of lactic malted milk, coffee, chocolate, and some yeasty bready thing going on. The flavor is roasty and malty, with strong hints of chocolate. The palate is lively, rich, and welcoming. Overall, under rated.

tap at the brewpub - I had this one immediately following their regular chocolate stout. It is of course similar, but is certainly a more robust version with a heavier roast malt aroma and a big roast malt flavor with some good dark chocolate notes. Its full bodied with some solid bitterness to it. Its simply a very good brew and in my opinion better than the ratings here. Maybe its losing something in the bottling.

TURDFERGUSON (4045) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bomber from Tjs. Pours dark brown with a fluffy light tan head that slowly descends to about an inch and sticks throughout the session. Im impressed. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee grounds, bitter hops, slightly vegetal , with only a little bit of cocoa. Flavor starts off very bitter with flavors of wet coffee grounds, alcohol, dark chocolate and finally a sweet syrupy finish. Leaves a bitter taste in my mouth and not a good bitter. Improves slightly as it warms.

heemer77 (5294) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bomber from Lukas Liquors in KC. Black body with a medium khaki head. Aroma of freshly made coffee and some dark chocolate. There is also a little bit of apple. The taste has some sweetened coffee and pancakes. There is also a little bit of toasted bread crust. The chocolate is understated. A decent brew.

Braudog (6341) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. Pitch black color youd expect, with a thin tan head. The aroma is more coffee than chocolate. Ashy almost. Drinks with a bitter baking chocolate thing going on, bitingly bitter at the finish, almost gritty. Nice night cap. (#3364, 3/29/2008)
