COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Were rolling out the muscle of love, Chocolate Camaro. This year, this tubbed out guzzler of choco thrust power rounded out just as wed hoped. Smooth, milk chocolatey delight cruising down your fun highway all the way to pleasure town.

Black with fair, creamy, tan head (but tasting from a growler) / Big, earthy nose of cigar box and coffee / Medium body, a touch watery, chewy, with good balance and finish / Flavors of tobacco and dark roast coffee, with unsweetened chocolate notes / Potentially very good, just needs to correct the body problems.

Shared growler with Sherm1016....my pleasure!! As noted, pours black with thin head..will do more if you are in a hurry (as we kind of were). Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate....a little bitter but that mellows out as you let it warm....it is better as it warms a bit...but that lets you savor it as well....loved it. Do hope that Half Acre bottles this one so we can enjoy it more often.

Growler fill from half acre... Pours a deep stouty pour, barely lighter at the edges with a frothy light beige head quickly dissipating to a thin wispy film... Aroma of cocoa and soft to medium roast, perfectly fine for the style bu nothing out of the ordinary... Milk chocolate and a moderate degree of roast, semi-sweet in nature. Carbonation is light but present and body is o the softer to medium side. Not bad but not all that special.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 Growler from the brewery picked up for the Bears game (Chicago, IL). Pours a very dark blackish hue, opaque with touches of brown, a cakey moderate darker brown head, stays moderate sized, laces well. Aromas are rich dark cocoa and roasted malts, touches of brown sugar, molasses, coffee grounds. Chocolate, cream, earthy tobacco, touches of lactose but not big. Kinda like a blend of a lot of cacao, rich and dark, dry roast. The sweetness is there, but it is so much more. Almost like a stout brewed with a Brown Ale appeal. Initial is medium bodied, throwing roast and cocoa, dark cacao nibs, touches of molasses, brown malts, roasted malts, sweeter cocoa and toffee. Touches of biscuits. The beer itself is a little light on body, with dry and roast lingering on, cacao and some sweetness, light lactose, toast and touches of earthy tobacco and brown malts, roasted barley. I think the surprisingly less sweet beer makes it a little thinner on body overall. Really, this feels like a chocolate loaded brown porter to me. Touches of milk sugar, but it really falls behind to me. Roast, dry, cocoa. Touches of coffee grounds work there way in a bit. Not a bad beer, tasty, just a little bit underbodied and not as sweet as youd expect a sweet stout to be. A great display of cocoa.. The natural way with some light touches of sweetness and plenty of unsweetened dark chocolate, roasty malts, dry and lingering sweetness hangs on a bit. Me thinks this beer has brought out the homer in some of us..

Growler from the brewery courtesy of dwm1034. Thanks! Pours a jet black with a thin tan head. Aroma is nothing but chocolate. Medium to heavy on the palate with medium carbonation. Flavor is bitter chocolate and roasted malt. One of the better sweet stouts Ive had. I hope they bottle this and make it a regular.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2011 growler card #2 punch #3. aroma is black cherry, raspberry and luscious fudge brownies. appearance is 99% opaque with filthy brown tinged head in large amounts but moderate to low carb. flavor echoes aroma with further pressure from the fruity notes, raspberry espically. those esters lighten the chocolate and keep it tempered and interesting, checking pure sweetness.

Is Chocolate Camaro a sex joke? Because I think it should be a sex joke. Not going to come up with one though because that would require actually being funny. Very dark brown pour, near black, with medium tan head that slowly dissipates into a tan film. Nice lacing. Ive always thought it was OK to have 7 out of every 10 jokes fail. .300 batting average will get you into the hall of fame. Aroma of Dark chocolate, oreo cookie, light roast. Maybe a bit of cocoa. Flavor is dark chocolate, cocoa, some nuget. Actually, extremely dry. Probably the driest chocolate stout Ive ever had. Basically, liquid dark chocolate without any annoying sweetness. Which is really nice. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Light lactose sweetness peaks out as it warms. Quite an excellent chocolate stout. Hard not to get behind this.
