Draft at brewery. It smells like a chocolate moon pie with this kind of grain y husky thing. Pours very dark with a thin brown head. Very dry chocolate notes on the tongue. Not getting much rc cola. Finishes clean.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on draft at the brewery. Pours a clear dark brown color with a large creamy light brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, caramel and a fruity finish. The taste is chocolate, tart cherries, stone fruits and a slightly vegetal note. Medium bodied and very drinkable.

Pours very dark with a small head. Good level of smokiness to it, though it was poured a little warm for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Small tan head sits on a semi-translucent chocolate brown colored base. Sharp carbonation mutes the initial flavor, then transitions into a roasty chocolate-malt and coffee flavor profile. Somewhat thin body, though a delicious flavor and a very clean finish. I honestly didnít know there was chocolate in this beer since it in no way shines. It tastes good, but more comes across as a standard session stout/porter than chocolate ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Aliviaís. Sits garnet brown in the glass with ruby edges and one finger of sandstone tan head. Nose shows a light roasty character with notes of toasted grain and chocolate. Some fruity esters coming through and a hint of diacetyl. Flavor is well represented by the aroma in that you taste everything you smell and vice versa. Toasty with notes of semis-sweet bakers chocolate and herbal hops. Is the alcohol correctly listed here? Didnít seem like 6% and it does say low alcohol

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2013 On tap at the brewery. Looks more like a brown ale. Dark brown with lots of light showing through and a smallish head. "Creamy stout"? Not so much, really. Nose shows some cola and slight chocolate. Mostly just dark malts with slight chocolate notes and some cola. Thin palate. Nothing more than just okay. RE-RATE: I guess they worked some issues out on this beer; sampled again at the tavern, and Iíll probably drink next time Iím there as well. Re-branded (accurately) as a "dark ale" as well. Pours with a head and a decent mouthfeel now; tastes subtly like a moon-pie: notes of graham cracker, marshmallow, vanilla, and chocolate. Not bad.
