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.

Awesome chocolate stout. It drinks more like a regular stout but it is full bodied and full flavored, it just is soooo drinkable.

Pours a nice dark black hue with a caramel colored, small-bubbled small head. aroma carries molasses notes and clear cocoa. Had to fight to smell the coffee. Taste was sweet but carried no surprises given the aroma. Perhaps a bit too bitter. It does not conceal a high ABV. It does have a nice cocoa finish.

Wow ! Pours a beautiful deep chocolate with a nice coffee colored head. Nose deep wonderful chocolate, so much so ! Taste is all malt and full of chocolate, with a very slight hint of alcohol. Ends again on a sweet long note. NICE. Quaff Score 8 / 10

Pouts a dark black with a brown head and nice aroma of chocolate. Taste is sweet, of chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee with a warming finish. Very good and drinkable brew, especially for chocolate stout lovers

Snifter on tap at Alive One in Cincinnati. Six dollars. Black color. Good thin light brown head, good lace. Nice smooth crisp lighter carbonation, dry finish. Good bitter sweet taste. Satisfactory chocolate flavor, of darker variety. Satisfyingly chocolate. Iím impressed. A lot of "chocolate" stouts are weak on the chocolate, but this one delivers.

Sampled in a bomber in Boulder. Pours with a huge head on it, which was suprising. Overall the flavor is quality and very sweet.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2012
6/23/12. 22oz bottle. Black pour with a nice tan head that cuts but laces in plentiful sheets. Rich chocolate aroma that lands somewhere between milk and dark. Underneath there is touches of coffee mixed with a slight bit of fruitiness. Slightly less sweet flavor than the aroma that shows roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate and a touch of chocolate milk. Thereís also bits of caramel and lingering dry, roasted coffee. Not bad.

I found this a bit boozy and blah, and tasted of coffee. In fairness I been drinking some nice RISís and this one just fell short comparitivly. not impressed, but was drinkable.

Pours dark brown/black with a medium mocha head. Aroma has roasty cocoa and just a faint hint of anise. Flavor has lots of dark chocolate but not bitter...more roasty...one dimensional but tasty. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/chocolatey...almost burnt...with a dry and bitter finale.
